I have stayed at a few different hotels in the area when I go to Cairns for business. This time I decided to try out the Pullman Cairns International. I stayed there for 3 days and overall it was very nice. The hotel is well situated, comfortable and well appointed. Being close to the esplanade and shops is a real...

Our stay at this hotel was amazing. The property itself looks dated, but is still good as new. It's architecture was interesting, because the building actually looked like it has less floors than it actually has. (In reality, the building has 16 floors, but looks like it only had like 8). Wi-Fi was only available for LeClub AccorHotels members, which...

The hotel is fantastically located right in town, nearby the beach and pier where all the fun water activities are to be found. Breakfast at the hotel had a good spread and staff were generally friendly. I particularly liked the row of shops right next to the hotel (had a few restaurants to try out). The pool was also very...

Stayed for 3 nights due to a work conference. Got a room upgrade which has changed my review from average! Ask for room 1520, great view. Breakfast buffet surprisingly good, pool area good, gym a bit tired. Rooms comfortable and good location.

We stayed her recently for 2 nights and this hotel is outstanding. The staff are very friendly and check in was easy even though we were early by a few hours. We were offered a room that was available at a cheap upgrade on a premium floor. The room was a great size and very modern with a lovely bathroom....

We thought the hotel, room, staff and buffet breakfast were all excellent. The room was very spacious with a lovely view and large bathroom. The breakfast was very nice and fresh eggs etc were available cooked to order. The Pullman is in a central area for Cairns and it is easy to walk to all the attractions.

The hotel was very very busy during our stay. But the staff could not have been more accommodating and everyone was very nice and easy to work with from the cleaning staff to the front desk. The rooms are spacious and lovely including the bathrooms. The buffet at breakfast is plentiful but because of how busy the hotel was it...

Really liked the experience but the rooms were a bit tired for the price...they need renovation. Staff promised a free gift with the Pullman Club but didn't deliver despite us asking 4 times! In the end they gave us free parking to make up for it. Other than that an ok hotel

This is a beautiful hotel with attentive staff, but our stay was complicated by a strong smell (fresh paint?) in the hallways that migrated into rooms, probably when serviced by housekeeping. Staff was wonderful in trying to remedy the situation - changed our room (different floor as well) - and provided air purifier, but with no relief. The smell is...

We enjoyed trying a new restaurant almost every day. Great area to explore the ocean, beaches and activities. Wonderful people and an easy walk to everything. Our group enjoyed snorkeling and scuba diving.
