This was our first visit to Australia and we knew that our hotel, the Acacia Court, was only a 2 star but when we arrived we found our room to be damp and dirty. The room stank of cigarette smoke (as did the whole hotel) even though we had requested a non smoking room (and the hotel was not full). The bathroom was mouldy and had definitely seen better days! Some of the reception staff were a bit grumpy and the restaurant was extremely expensive.
However the Esplanade location was beautiful and only a fifteen minute walk to the centre of Cairns. There is also a very helpful independant tour arranger that is located at the foyet of the Acacia Court that will give you a lot of good advice about local restaurants and attractions.
Overall, if we were to visit Cairns again we would not stay at the Acacia Court.
B&S from England.
