OK, so you get what you pay for and to be honest, we only needed three nights for three of us and we had limited needs, so we were happy to go with cheap and cheerful! The lady managing the place is so lovely and welcoming, shes just the right person for the place. Our room was definitely old, with...

Coming back from an International holiday, of all the hotels we stayed at, this is our pick of properties. We really felt welcome. Maggie, the owner and Lynn the property manager went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. When it suddenly poured with rain, Lynn offered us a lift in her car to the restaurant!...

This is a relaxed guest house on Cairns Esplanade. The building is 'old style' and a survivor of a bygone age. Our room was well appointed, with a sitting room as well as the bedroom. It had a kitchenette with a refrigerator, which was most welcome. There is a swimming pool at the back of the guest house. It is...

We really enjoyed our stay at Floriana Guesthouse, a much needed break from life on the road. With clean rooms, air conditioning, facilities to cook our meals, plus the loveliest of hosts Maggie who really made us feel at home and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed!

We stayed in a spacious apartment style room overlooking the ocean and Esplanade for 4 nights. Our room was clean and had everything we needed to cook small meals. It was a most pleasant experience and Miss Maggie was so welcoming and gracious. We enjoyed wine outside with her in the evenings then moved into the living room/lobby for singing...

This is a perfectly charming characterful little guest house in a lovely spot on the Cairns Esplanade, or Nard, with water views and breezes. This place has history and quirkiness in spades and is a very comfy home away from home. Not hip or high end but well equipped with great charm. A delightful little place to stay, good value...

My room was funky and not-so-clean, but awesome anyway. Floriana is on a fantastic, mostly quiet part of the Esplanade and the front rooms look over the park strip to the ocean. My room (#9) caught the afternoon breeze and there were a couple of rickety ceiling fans to help move it around (I didn't try the air conditioning). My...

My partner and I stayed at Floriana Guesthouse for three nights last week and had a great time. We loved the pool area, which we used every day, and always had it completely to ourselves! Our room was nice, with an ensuite bathroom and little kitchenette. It was a little dirty, but perfectly acceptable, given that it is an older...

Lovely old Queenslander home with lots of interesting memorabilia in the foyer. The louvers and shutters give that real tropical feel. Only 15 minutes walk from restaurants, shops and very close to the water. Maggie the owner is always on hand if there is a problem. The pool is always available for use, and very refreshing.
