We spent three nights here as part of our two week holiday in Australia and whilst it doesnt come up to the other Shangri La hotels either of us have stayed in, for the price it was great and I doubt there was anywhere better in Cairns. As we were off season and as visitors were down due to swine flu we got a 3 nights for the price of 2 deal in a superior room with a direct view out to sea.
The hotels location is great, being right by the harbour and close to all of the restaurants and bars in the centre of Cairns. The room was fine, not up to the usual Shangri La standard but given what we were paying it was great value. It had all the usual stuff but is probably due for a bit of a refurb, but no complaints as it was clean and service was very good if you needed anything. The service certainly was up to what you would expect from a Shangri La.
Allin all though a great place to stay for the price and location in Cairns and of the other hotels we had a look at only the Hilton looked up to much in Central Cairns.
