From emails to check in and check out, the staff are fabulous to work with. Reservations were made easily and communication was stellar and quick. The standard ore authorization at check in of course but no other out of the ordinary expenses. Clean room and sheets/ towels. Nice size bathroom, shower with good temps and pressure. Pay for the upgrade...

Very close to the water, easy walk to the esplanade and all the restaurants and shopping. Stayed on 2 occasions and was able to store my luggage while we went on an overnight dive trip. The first room was very spacious with 3 beds so very nice for my son and I. The wi-fi signal in this room on the...

Pros: Clean spacious apartment room with a comfortable bed. WiFi worked well. Close to many restaurants and shopping. Cons: Desk service was unfriendly. Not at all flexible with 10 am check out time. We paid for their breakfast buffet, only to find that it had run out of many items so was a poor value. Better beaches are elsewhere. Is...

Absolutely ideal for a brief but enjoyable stay in Cairns. Central enough to walk to everything downtown and at the marinas for the reef boats. Far enough out to be quiet. Welcomed by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Room was clean and large although bathroom was a little small especially given the space in the room. We had a...

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it. The boardwalk is just across the street which means walking to the harbor, shops, and restaurants was so easy. You can tell it's a bit dated, and the doors offer no soundproofing. However, they included international plugs in the bathroom which is much appreciated. The breakfast was okay, for $15 AUD...

Spacious, comfortable and clean rooms, which also has a small, kitchenette. Super friendly and service minded staff. The hotel is located a few blocks from the lagoon and many restaurants. We will definitely stay here again!

Stayed one night with a family of 4. Rooms clean but slightly squashy with 2 double beds and no room for suitcases. Beds clean and comfortable. The whole building needs a bit of an update. Good location within short walking distance. Slightly overpriced!

There really isn't anything wrong with the Cairns Plaza EXCEPT the beds are very hard and uncomfortable. That made it very difficult to sleep and we didn't much feel up to doing much because we were so tired after nights of tossing and turning. We booked a suite overlooking the water and pool (life saver on really hot days). We...

Clean hotel with a location that was easy to find and only a pleasant stroll into the main eating and shopping area of Cairns. Great balcony that provided a nice ocean view. The pool was beautiful at night, providing a much welcomed opportunity to cool down as the room's air conditioning unit didn't seem to be doing anything more than...

It is hard to find fault with this hotel. We had a top floor suite (two rooms) with views overlooking the Esplanade and seafront. At first the room could appear a little sparse, but this is because the rooms were quite large and I like that. The bathroom, for example, actually had space for me and my partner to place...
