Dont expect too much from the Acacia Court and you wont be disappointed. Its not much more than a bed for the night. Rooms are clean and large but try to avoid the first floor (they call it 2nd floor) because your ocean view will be overpowered by the roof of the outdoor dining and entry area.

This is not a resort and while it does have a pool, it is right off the dining and bar area with the road on the other side. No privacy and quite small for such a large hotel.

Breakfast is great value but we only tried Charlies buffet at night once, it was not that good.

All staff were great with the exception of one grumpy rude older gentleman that was on the desk each evening.

Bottleshop was closed during out stay.

A fair distance from the centre of Cairns but still very walkable and a nice trip along the Esplanade which is right outside the hotel. Lovely atmosphere in the afternoons.

Not much in the way of restaurants in this area.

If you are planning on spending everyday out sightseeing and not lounging around a resort then this hotel is great value.

Room Tip: avoid the second floor because view is obstructed by roofing

We have been using the Acacia Court Hotel in Cairns for over 25 years as we are from the Cairns Hinterland. Having reviewed the majority of comments it is obvious that over the past couple of years the quality of service has sadly declined severely. But the most noticeable decline is this time is in reception and booking in the rooms were OK but just...Breakfast was very poor and when we spoke to the "manager" he was abrupt and did not care that we were telling him something that would assist in the betterment of the hotel...it should be noted that the ownership of this hotel has recently changed and that staff that were to us most welcoming have been fired or left...after 25 year we will in the future be more circumspect as to where we will stay in Cairns, and unfortunately Acacia Court will more that likely be very low down on that list, unless and until the new owners and management "lift their act"

The major problem with this hotel is that everyone says it is under new construction. If you look for the address on the main esplanade, you won't find a name or a number. You have to drive one block off the beach to find recognition of the hotel and parking. We had a triple bedded room, ocean view for only $114 !!!!! as of June 2014. Big room, great shower, comfortable beds and oh what a beautiful view on our private balcony. The dinner buffet and breakfast were just perfect as the waitress had to shooo away a native bird or two. Please don't!!!!!! You would be crazy to pay $180 at the Holiday Inn or other properties for just a double!! Staff is extremely friendly and you are right there at the north end. Save you money and enjoy a great room. Just state you want the ocean view and you will love it.

Room Tip: Ask for waterfront with a balcony! Super deal and you will not be disappointed. Don't expect valet services. Drag your own luggage to the room and when you open the door and see the view, you will forget everything!

Spent only one night at this hotel on June 7th 2014. Room was clean but outdated. First when I arrived, the cleaning lady was spraying a product in the room which was very strong odor. I don't know if the product was deodorant or bug killer type. No luxury in the bedding but it was alright. Also I opted for an ocean view (5th floor) room which was very nice. The room had big patio door and a good size balcony. I chose this hotel for it's location on the Strand, very nice with it's park with walking paths but it is located a good distance from the action. About 20 min walk to restaurant, shopping, etc...I found easy parking in the hotel parking but I stayed in the low season. Probably different in the high season as there was not a lot of free spots. The package included the breakfast. Food was just "ok". Coffee machine was broken and the American coffee was awful. Overall, this place is ok for a short stay.

Room Tip: To get the best view possible and to get away from the noise coming from the pool area, choose an ocean front room as high as possible.

No wifi. Poor service. Mold. Guests can set off the building's fire alarm by taking a hot shower. No sign or address to identify the hotel from the street. You'd be likely to find a hostel cleaner. If you're looking for a hotel on the Esplanade, pay the extra $10 and go to the Holiday Inn.
