Our ongoing search for Cairn's best over-nighter continues but we may have a winner. The Horizon Club rooms at the Shangri-La are certainly up there with anywhere else in Cairns. They're bright, modern, high ceiling-ed, great views, quiet as a church, have great bathrooms and come with free nibbles, pre-dinner drinks and breakfast too. The only downside is the price (about $330pn).
Luckily for us our stay was a free upgrade (benefits of Golden Circle membership?) from a Deluxe Marina View room (which cost about $100 less).
However, if you're prepared to make the most of the pre-dinner snacks (instead of dinner? or at least instead of an entree?) and drinks and then take full advantage of the (very nice) breakfast it probably works out about the similar price for a couple as the Deluxe Marina View option; and is certainly better!
Thanks Shangri-La for the upgrade; we'll certainly be back and maybe next time we'll be paying for that Horizon Club room.
