Comfortable, modern rooms. Allows you to control the air conditioning via fan speed settings. Location is very convenient to harbour and Great Barrier Reef tours. Breakfast buffet was excellent with lots of choices,meow ever was very busy. Hotel pool was small but warm. The only complaint I can think off was due to the noise from the road in front....

Very friendly, helpful staff made our stay a great experience. Very comfy room, clean bathroom, great buffet breakfast. Good beds and pillows. Very handy location - close to everything in town plus the esplanade. Only downside was having to park in rear yard of hotel in the open - no security, and not undercover. NOTE - I booked this hotel...

Not a bad hotel, a bit modern for my taste. Only complaint was the bathroom was very tight with the shower right next to the sink and no curtain to keep the water at bay. The bed was very tight to the bathroom door.

Hi Diane S Thank you for your lovely review, the location is amazing and I have to admit that the night flight of the bats never gets old. It is great for us to be able to capitalise on the fantastic work done on the Waterfront over the years, Cairns truly is a paradise. Thanks Gregor

Great location, friendly staff, and comfortable rooms - what more could you ask for from a reasonably priced hotel, when all you want to do is dive all day! We loved our 3 day stay as it was close to everything we wanted to do - the marina, the busy streets with restaurants, shopping and all activities.

Very clean room. The staff will turn on air condition for you before you come back, which makes me feel very comfortable .Cairns is very humid, so you could chilli immediatly. It is close to everything, next cairns tourist center, also can book trip to GBR, 10 minutes walk to restaurant and ferry check in.

Pacific Hotel it's a great hotel with everything that you need. They offer a big breakfast but a bad coffee included so, if you want a good one you have to pay extra. The location it's perfect, near to the pool, esplanade, and shops. Cairns is the reef terminal, so it's the best place to go and discover the Reef....

This hotel is quite modern and in a good location. Easy walk to the wharf for the Reef trips, many good restaurants and a pleasant walk. Going the other way easy walking to more restaurants and bars as well as all the shops. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We were on the 11th floor with a balcony overlooking...

This affordable hotel is in a great location. There must be 25 restaurants within 1/4 mile and it's in walking distance to shopping, the beach and tons of things to do. There's also laundry facilities on each floor.

Hi barbben Thank you for your review and you are right about the location, if anything you may have undercalled the number of restaurants nearby:) No one wants to do laundry on their holidays but it's good to have the option. Thanks Gregor
