We stayed in a spacious apartment style room overlooking the ocean and Esplanade for 4 nights. Our room was clean and had everything we needed to cook small meals. It was a most pleasant experience and Miss Maggie was so welcoming and gracious. We enjoyed wine outside with her in the evenings then moved into the living room/lobby for singing...

This is a perfectly charming characterful little guest house in a lovely spot on the Cairns Esplanade, or Nard, with water views and breezes. This place has history and quirkiness in spades and is a very comfy home away from home. Not hip or high end but well equipped with great charm. A delightful little place to stay, good value...

My room was funky and not-so-clean, but awesome anyway. Floriana is on a fantastic, mostly quiet part of the Esplanade and the front rooms look over the park strip to the ocean. My room (#9) caught the afternoon breeze and there were a couple of rickety ceiling fans to help move it around (I didn't try the air conditioning). My...

My partner and I stayed at Floriana Guesthouse for three nights last week and had a great time. We loved the pool area, which we used every day, and always had it completely to ourselves! Our room was nice, with an ensuite bathroom and little kitchenette. It was a little dirty, but perfectly acceptable, given that it is an older...

Lovely old Queenslander home with lots of interesting memorabilia in the foyer. The louvers and shutters give that real tropical feel. Only 15 minutes walk from restaurants, shops and very close to the water. Maggie the owner is always on hand if there is a problem. The pool is always available for use, and very refreshing.

Having stayed in numerous BnBs and Guest Houses here and abroad, I was disappointed in so many things. The host handed me to a gent, who walked me up the stairs to my room, explained tge password for the internet and no more. The accomodation itself is a very tired premises, the shower space was a fibreglass shell attached to...

Charming property, a pleasant short walk from restaurants and facilities in Cairns. Peaceful location on the Esplanade just across the road from the sea and a very relaxing place to stay. Nice, well-maintained walks along the front into Cairns and the other way along the beach. Could do with a Spring clean, but that just adds to the character!

We liked this place so much that we spent another couple of days at the end of our trip. On the first visit we had one of the flash rooms at the front, with a view of the waterfront, but the rear room on our second stay was also comfortable. This is an old building, but well-maintained and clean. About...

Great location right on the Esplanade. Private home from the 1930s, Lovely place to stay. We were upgraded to a studio room, spacious and comfortable. Free wifi. Liked it enough to book again for when we return to Cairns. Only downside was that it took 30 minutes to wake up the manager to check in, despite a proliferation of bells!
