“Amazing Hotel”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

The hotel is amazing, with amazing view. I liked the overall ambiance of the place. Little bit expensive though, but overall it gives you value for the money you pay. Definitely would recommend to others.

Room Tip: If you can let go of a smoking room, you can get marina view room.

This hotel is in great location and views from the higher floors are excellent. As a value for money it is not that great, no free internet, restaurant and pool bar are expensive. Pool was cold.
Only recommend to stay here if location is very important.
If you are going to stay here ask for a corner room on a higher floor.

Dear lloyd255100,
Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback, it is good to see you enjoyed the room and the views. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations in regards to pricing of food and beverage, our restaurant Tamarind is offes the signature experience that it is reknowned for. If I may recommend Flinders Bar and Grill inside our Casino for a value for money meal, with nothing over $15, we also have the Noodle Bar situated at our Abbot Street entrance with similar pricing.
Kind regards

We stayed here as a part of our honeymoon, the service and staff were so professional and helpful. The chef was FANTASTIC, the room service was amazing! I have dietary requirements so the chef called my room and came up with a meal for me. Bottle of wine on arrival as it was our honeymoon.The roof top wildlife dome was great, abit expensive but you only need to pay once and can visit anytime during your stay.

We went here for 5 days over the Easter break. The room was superb and had fantastic views, location was central to everything, staff very friendly and happy to arrange car hire and day tours etc for u while you while you just head off and have breakfast. The hotel was excellent, I could not fault it. I could have stayed here for another week and will certainly be back.

My husband and I had a wonderful 3 Night stay in a suite at the Pullman and what can I say but luxury plus ! We felt extremely spoilt. The room was huge, great view, wonderful location central to lots of restaurants and shopping. Our package included Breakfast which was amazing ! The service here was faultless in all areas of the best place we have ever stayed. Definitely recommend it !

This hotel is beautifully presented and the staff were professional, extremely proficient and helpful. As a light sleeper, when booking through an agent I had asked for a room on a high floor and away from the elevators. Due to the hotel being heavily booked we were given a beautiful room on level 2 but promised a move the next day. True to their word we were moved to an equally nice room overlooking the pool area. Unfortunately when the air-con was switched off later that night to allow me to sleep a constant droning noise could be heard. The staff were very helpful and moved us temporarily to another room to sleep for the night and once again promised to find a room suitable for us the next day. They kindly upgraded us to a suite (where we had slept in the night before) for the rest of our stay with them. In addition to this I had a few problems linking into the wifi with my tablet and the staff once again came to the rescue. My sincere thanks to all who helped us during our stay and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone staying in the Cairns area.
