Excellent location & view from hotel balcony, specifically from the ocean view suite. Overall a very good place to stay in Cairns. Nearby shops, ferry wharfs, restaurants etc. within walking distance.

Loved this hotel. It's nothing fancy, but very clean, rooms are nice. Location is great. and staff is amazing. They took care of all of my requests and really helped me to plan my days with various excursions. Very short walk to center of town and to harbor. I traveled alone and felt perfectly save.

Nicely located just outside the main center of Cairns although it is easily walkable. Its located close to the cathedrals, giving it the advantage of being in a quiet location yet close to the center for everything. There seems ample free parking, the rooms are clean and modern and have all you would need. Restaurants and shops are close.

Although the room was clean, good location and one lovely girl at reception, this hotel is very very noisy (had the permanent noise of laundry just below me), room (superior) was just above the parking lot, room was in front of the lift so had all the passage and kids screams in the hallway, and could here my neighbours going...

It's probably the "Plaza" in the hotel name that may raise your expectations (The Plaza Hotel NYC anyone?) - but I'm saying temper the expectations down and you will fare great. This hotel was an adequate and budget option for what we needed which was a home base for exploring the Cairns area. It was about 12 min drive from...

We would stay in this place again in the same room when returning to Cairns. It was perfect for 2 of us staying 5 nights. Views were great. Location was perfect, walking distance to esplanade restaurants. Enjoyed our stay.

Booked in here to stay for 1 night on business after reading TA reviews. If you want a good clean and honest place to stay then look no further. Rooms are ample in size, quiet and tons of hot water. The rooms have been upgraded to an good standard. It is not 'posh' so don't be expecting it to be...

Excellent location. Great view from balcony. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Good size rooms, separate lounge and bedroom. Microwave. Newly renovated. Would be great to have a TV in the bedroom but that is a minor point.

Stayed two nights, 6th floor, rm 605. Fantastic view. Two large balconies, one off the bedroom and one off the living room. Each room is very spacious and modern. Bed is quite comfortable. The only fault was the serious lack of lighting in the bathroom and the shower is not fully enclosed so water splashed out onto the floor and...
