A nice location, ocean views, across the road from the beach, walking distance from the board walk, cafes, shops & marina. So much to do and see, reception staff were welcoming and very helpful and informative about what to do and where to go. would stay here again if i was to return to Cairns.

We stayed here for 8 nights in one of the ocean view suites. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The suite has a small kitchenette, however the only cooking method is a microwave, so choices for making your own eat in meals are a bit limited. The ocean view from the balcony was wonderful. The swimming pool was very...

Very good hotel, priced right and nearby to the Esplanade and downtown. The hotel also serves a great breakfast. Pool was on site, but didn't have time to use it. The hotel is in a safe and clean neighborhood of Cains, and close to the Reef Terminalmif you are planning a Great Barrier Reef trip.

A nice hotel with a helpful personel. Clean and good location, not too close to the center. Good for family with little children, playground just in front of the hotel. Parking spot on the 1st floor is comfortable. Everything is within walking distance.

My husband and I stayed at the Cairns Plaza hotel for two nights while embarking on a couple of Great Barrier Reef Trips. We were barely in the hotel, so did not really need anything fancy. The hotel is pretty convenient, within a few minutes walking distance to restaurants / cafes / bars / shopping and about a ten/fifteen minute...

The room was good, the pool too, except that there was no toilet or shower anywhere nearby, only in our room. Staff friendly and helpful. However, I was charged an undisclosed "pre-authorisation" fee even though I paid the full price in advance. On checking out I asked for a refund and was was told the bank will refund it, eventually....

We stayed 1 night here, and 2 nights at 2 other Cairns hotels & this was definitely the best. The hotel was pretty easy to find, rooms were modern, clean & comfortable. We had a very nice family room. AC worked well, which seems to be a difficulty in Cairns! This was located near restaurants & an easy walk to...
