“good hotel nice staff”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Getting a bit tired but still a good hotel. Staff are good. Room service was fast. Some rooms are a long walk. Nice views over the marina from most rooms.

Club floor is the best. Beds and linen are the best.

Room Tip: Club floor is definitely the best if you can afford it. All with nice views over the marina and the...

Great stay, the tour desk people are extremely helpful and friendly, very professional teams and great location for this hotel. The rooms are very clean, quiet and largely open to benefit from the amazing views on the marina.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and the view of the marina was beautiful. Very convenient location, close to reef fleet and the esplanade. Would definitely stay again if in Cairns.

Room Tip: Deluxe marina view room is spacious with fantastic view

We loved our stay in this Hotel. Staff were excellent. Our room was spacious and overlooking Marina. View from room was great We enjoyed our breakfasts lovely to eat near water watching waterfront activity. Hotel does need some TLC in some areas We were a little disappointed on one day when returning to our rooms after 4-30 pm that our rooms had not been serviced. Hotel was very central to Cairns shops and Restaurants. Great to walk each night to a selection of eating places. We will stay here again if in Cairns.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Marina have great views

The hotel was nice although in need of a little TLC. What struck me most was the lack of Shangri La WOW I have come to expect of this brand. The potential is there but needs an update. The club lounge was very poor and reflected the general lack of that was radiating from all areas of my stay and experience. The location was good and room service food was hot and nice. The bathroom was the best feature of the room but the floor tiles are absolutely terribly and bring the whole room down to a very drab style. I will stay again if they refurb otherwise I might try elsewhere next time and that is disappointing as a Golden Circle Member. Staff were friendly and very obliging. The Limo organised through the hotel was on time and the driver courteous and friendly.

Room Tip: My room had a balcony with a sea view which was great for fresh air and enjoying the great Cairns we...

As we walked in the hotel and they realize that in the reservation we asked for a king bed, we are golden circle member, they move us to the horizon club, beautiful room with a big balcony and great view of the marina.
Thank to the manager, Katherine, she made every effort to organize the trip to green island for us.
Everything was perfect.

Room Tip: room 31 with a view of the marina
