Great staff and Very Good rooms with a wide selection of pillows. The staff checked us in when we first arrived which was very early morning (like 8AM) even though check in time was 2:00. This was maybe the best hotel value on our trip, but we prefer walking over other transporation and this hotel is a very long way from the town centre or any activites... although the walk along thw explanade was good.

Thank you so much for your comments. We do try very hard to make our guests as welcome and as comfortable as we possibly can. Our pillow menu caters for most needs and we are happy to have guests select pillows to enhance sleeping comfort. All our beds are new and along with current upgrades to the hotel we certainly will be even better value for money.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased with your stay at the Cairns Sheridan Hotel. We have just acquired this hotel and the same Management and staff remain, we are anxious to upgrade services and refurbish and you would have already noticed the exterior has been repainted and work is underway to refurbish the interior. Again thank you for your review, we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

I was highly impressed by the excellent quality of customer service given by Leora, Waitress, in the hotel restaurant, the yummy food provided and the quality of accommodation in the hotel. AAA rating!

Room Tip: Set back from the main road so no road noise, and well located between the Airport and the Cairns CB...

Thank you for your positive comments. We have received many comments on the high quality of our restaurant food and the service. A hotel restaurant takes constant attention and staff training to get it right but it is so rewarding when we do. As you say our proximity to the airport and city makes for easy access to both. Since your comments we have started refurbishment which will now offer even greater value for money. See you again soon.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my son. Room was clean but a quite musty smelling. Your standard hotel room, soon in need of refurbishment, but only minor cosmetic faults. We had a room service dinner which was absolutely delicious. Our accommodation deal included the hot buffet breakfast, which was also very nice. Our tv didn't work properly on the first night so I rang reception. The manager said there was nothing he could do about it and would get someone to look at it the next day. When we returned after a day out, nothing had been done. I rang reception again and got a very helpful manager. She said she would be right up to have a look at it. There was a fault with the cable which she wasn't able to do anything about but she immediately offered us the option to move to another room, which we took up. I found the beds to be hard in both the rooms we stayed in.

Stayed in a deluxe queen room for one night for $99. No complaints with the room. It was spacious, clean and pretty much what we were expecting. The hotel has ample parking. It's located a good bit out from the main town. It's maybe only a 5 min drive but not within walking distance and parking in the town centre can be hard to find. The "gym" in the hotel would make you laugh! It consists of maybe two treadmills and a rowing machine crammed into a tiny room. None of the equipment worked when we were there.

If I was in Cairns again I'd look for somewhere more central but if the location wouldn't bother you this is a decent hotel at a reasonable price.
