The two room suite was inexpensive, and big enough for the whole family. The staff are wonderful - helpful but not intrusive, frindly and just decent people. The place is spotless, and although not right in the centre of the downtown it is only 5 minutes away, and a pleasent stroll. Very good standard for decently priced accommodation.

We stayed 2 separate nights, right before and after stay on one of the islands. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, they also gave us a rider to the harbour. They allowed us to store extra luggage there between our stays. Easy to walk to many restaurants, very peaceful.

Two main things made the stay at Heritage most enjoyable. Firstly, the cleanliness of the room and the building in general was unmatched to anywhere I have stayed in recent times. Secondly, the service from reception was faultless. From arrival to departure, we received excellent customer service. The really nice thing that we were treated as guests and not simply...

Within walking distance to restaurants, The Esplanade, pier, casino but without the noise. Staff very obliging and helpful making my stay in Cairns most relaxing and enjoyable. Rooms good size and have recently been revamped. Small dining area on lower floor that is set up each morning for breakfast.

Right from the start we realised that the Heritage would be wonderful. Rosemary was the only manager of six hotels that bothered to e-mail us back with a welcome when we booked. This hotel is an oasis of tranquility we could go back to after a busy day out on the reef. we had a ground floor room with a...

Thank you for writing a review. My company has been in the hospitality business for almost 50 years, most of which has been in PNG where we own and operate the Madang Resort and Kalibobo Village - recently the company began investing in Cairns with the purchase of Cairns Heritage in 2010 and more recently purchasing the Cairns Sheridan Hotel....

We only spent one brief night at the Heritage - had a late flight in and left fairly early the next morning for Green Island, so unfortunately we didn't stay long enough that I could fully review this accommodation but everything we experienced while staying there was great. Rosemary was invaluable from start to finish. We had actually chosen this...

Your comments are very much appreciated. The Heritage Cairns is a very special place, it is not designed to be a Hilton, it is a home away from home and Rosemary personal attention to her guests has been well noted. We hope you can revisit us again in the near future. Sir Peter

Rosemary is a jewel and takes excellent care of guests. This was a terrific place to stay for our 3 nights in Cairns. We had a fridge, a place to do laundry, a balcony, and a true king size bed. Pure heaven. It was quiet at night and easy walking distance to all the fun. Go out at twilight and...

Just spent 3 nights at the Heritage. Can't say enough nice things about Rosemary - she was wonderful and very helpful in arranging trips to the reef and the rainforest and booking our airport shuttle. She even drove us to the marina and the train station. Our room was spacious and clean. And the hotel is convenient to the Esplanade....
