Good to stay overall. But the room facility was not quite supported, and that's a bit different from what I think. I dont like the washroom as it was easily wet. And that's not fit with the score I saw from the web. Actually, we were a bit disappointed for that.

The hotel was a surprise. Room was very comfortable and had everything you need for a short stay. The pool was the icing on the cake. Clean and refreshing with a private space. We will certainly stay again. Our room was facing the hinterland, which was great, because the balcony was in the shade at "drinks time!'. Maybe next time...

We stayed two nights at this property pre-cruise, and chose it largely for it's great location on the Esplanade and it's affordability/ value for money (even though we did book early, a lot of the hotels closer to the cruise terminal were already booked out but it is a quite short taxi drive to the terminal or on a nice...

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit with the Cains Plaza Hotel. Great location and very helpful staff. I would definitely use again. Only minor complaint would be that the beds might need some updating. Thanks

The views from the ocean view rooms were fantastic and really made the trip for us. Always something to see down on the esplanade front. Older hotel building had been renovated and had everything needed or expected. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed for 6 nights and if we came to Cairns again we would definitely be...

We stayed only one night due to an early flight out to NZ next morning. Our room was very comfortable, two queen size beds, very clean and great view to the water. It was very adequate for what we needed, Thank you, Donna and Pam.

we loved every part of this hotel, from the location with excellent view of the ocean direct on the Esplanade. Hugh room with livingroom and two balkonies where you can enjoy the views. Nice breakfast room with good choices, though i missed more fruit on the table. One morning just some slices of water melon. Laundry on first floor, pool...
