You can't beat this hotel for location, room size and value for money. The standard room is more like a one bedroom apartment with all the facilities you will need, even for a self catering stay. Restaurants abound, so your choice is good.

Harbor Lights in Cairns, Australia is a complex of serviced apartments and private condominiums. The best part of the property is its location. Right on the Broadwalk of Cairns, overlooking the Merlin Marina, serene blue waters of the Trinity Inlet and the fog-capped hills beyond. The serviced apartments occupy the first through third floors of the multistory building. It is...

Dear Chackoka What a beuatiful description of the locations and its surroundings. Thank you for your positive words, but also your constructive feedback regarding the housekeeping times. I will certainly review the flexibility of the process. We have also got approval recently to replace our current key card system with state of the art technology, so we are confident that...

The service was great, and the staff friendly. Room was spacious, making the experience very comfortable and definitely one of the better hotels I've stayed in. Close to everything around the Cairns CBD with a selection of great restaurants right near the hotel.

We booked a two bedroom/bathroom unit with queen and king beds to visit our family in Cairns. The beds were great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Some of the furniture in the unit was a bit worn but for our purposes, the central location was perfect. The unit was facing the city but the building itself is right on the...

The hotel is in a lovely position overlooking the harbour. Easy access to the Esplanade and numerous restaurants. Walking distance to the harbour for all trips to the Great Barrier Reef. Staff were friendly and very accommodating when we had to change our travel dates. The apartment was spacious and had all we needed for a week's stay. Free daily...

We spent more than the week in Harbour Loghts, staying in Cairns for diving trip with Dive Pro.

Stayed here after dropping off our campervan and it was a well welcomed nice clean room. Modern, nice furnishings, we faced the casino. We were boarding Reef Encounter the following day and it was the perfect location as the jetty is right there. Wish I had booked this hotel for my return instead of where we did stay!
