Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spent an evening here before my return flight home to Darwin. It is ideally located, a short walk to the Esplanade and the city centre. My room was clean, and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. The hotel boasts a charming tropical garden and outdoor seating area, and while the pool was closed for maintenance, it looked like a lovely place to refresh after days exploring Cairns and the surrounding areas. It was excellent value for money, and I particularly enjoyed the artwork – sculptures and incredible masks from PNG. There is a breakfast room, which although I didn't have breakfast here, had fresh fruit, bread, cereals and coffee/tea, etc. The additional price (January 2024) was $18.00, which looked like it would be well worth it. the staff were very friendly and welcoming, which made my brief stay even more relaxing. Highly recommended.

Hate giving such a bad review as the staff we really lovely and helpful but that’s as far as it goes. Room was on the ground floor and bathroom had a weird smell, I think coming from the drain. Really out dated furniture and decor. Bathroom hasn’t been updated in decades. Spent as much time out to dinner as possible as didn’t want to go back to the room but as a solo female travelling for work, didn’t want to be walking home alone too late.

Lovely staff member from Chile very welcoming. Room was equipped with toaster, plates, bowls and cutlery. Room clean. The only negative was that the bathroom floor was slippery and didn't seem to drain properly. We just placed lots of towels on the floor

Lovely reception staff were very welcoming. along the esplanade or through the streets. An easy to walk into to the centre, and right by the quieter end of the esplanade. Great location. ..................I recommend

Friendly staff, clean room with a view and a short flat walk to everything. Biggest comfortable King size bed, spa bath im our separate ensuite was invigorating and relaxing. NB: The doors to the ensuite close but have been bent at some stage so don't shut properly. Cosmetic but noteworthy. The pool and outdoor spa were clean and invigorating but use in the am rather than the pm if you feel the cold as it shades over later in the day. Check with reception regarding breakfast as we were told it wasn't available 2 days out of 3 as we hadn't prebooked? 3rd day was quite adequate with fruit, juice, cereal, toast and yoghurt offered with tea/coffee for $10 and self cleaning. Great value! Private lockable carparking available on premises which also gave peace of mind at night. Tour desk available and staff quite helpful. Lift to our 3rd floor room which is a little clunky but fairly quick. Max 4 people with luggage. Overall clean and comfortable just needing a few updates. 7/10

Second time I've stayed here. This visit was for 7 nights in a king room at the rear of the hotel which overlooks the Comfort Inn. Perfect quiet and comfy night sleep only 10 minutes walk along Lake St to centre of Cairns. It's also only 5 minutes walk from the esplanade walk along the front to the Lagoon. This is a small family run hotel which offers a perfect location at a far less price than the big brand hotels. Breakfast is available, but there are so many cafes only a short walk away that offer so many choices. Tours are available, but I'm an independent traveller who prefers to make my own arrangements. I would certainly recommend this stay and I'll definitely return on my next visit to Cairns.

Stayed for two nights in February 2023. Excellent value for money. Basic but clean with everything we needed including tea and coffee facilities, air conditioning and small fridge in the room. Location is 10 minutes walk from esplanade, 15 minutes from train station and huge modern indoor shopping centre. A little tired and needs a refurb but you get what you pay for. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Clean even though it’s quite outdated. Comfy bed. In walking distance from CBD. Overall a good stay and value for money. We felt a bit unsafe walking back to the hotel at night, but that’s the same for any hotel in Cairns North in my opinion.

Great quiet location a short walk from the Esplanade and Town Centre. The hotel is perfect for a no frills stay and was comfortable, safe and a great choice for a cost efficient stay. This is a family run hotel and they are very friendly to assist with any enquiry. I will certainly stay again on my next visit to Cairns.
