We had to come to Cairns a day earlier than planned (note to self: double check your dates when booking accommodation) so needed a one nighter. It's school holidays here at the moment so things were pretty busy but we found this art deco guest house on the esplanade that suited us just fine. We had room number 7, apparently...

The first thing to say this is an old fashioned guest house so you should not expect the same as hotel. From the moment I entered the place seemed different but welcoming, James who checked me in was knowledgeable and helpful throughout my stay. The bonus of this place also is as it only has 10 rooms it's not mega...

From the outside this place looks interesting, but the room we had needed some attention. The kitchen area was dirty and so were some of the plates & glasses. The bathroom was on a balcony which had the air conditioning unit and it was extremely hot and unpleasant. Bed uncomfortable. We were told it was the best room in the...

I really enjoyed my 8 night stay here. The heritage features are lovely & the suites have been creatively designed within the space allowed. It's a low key, casual venue with a lovely salt water swimming pool & BBQ facilities. I loved having my own toilet, shower & wee kitchen area. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location just by the waterfront/park area. Charming hall and livingroom, however the rooms need a refurbishing. There was a small well stocked kitchen in the room. Perfect for grabbing a small breakfast before going out on trips. Clean and a good terrasse with a small swimmingpool. Charming in its own way, and you get what you pay for. Friendly...

We were more than happy with our huge clean room. This place is quirky no doubt, but I love that it is unique and part of Cairns' history. The location is awesome and quiet...around a 15 min walk from the heart of the action.

Small guesthouse in Cairns on the esplanade. Next to the hospital. Restaurants are walkable- about 20 minutes along the esplanade. It was a nice walk. Phil, the manager is very helpful. Kitchenette in the room.

This is a comfortable and relaxing place to stay for a night or a week of nights. Phil, the manager is great! He is helpful in suggesting things to do and is an interesting guy to visit with. The rooms are comfortable and clean. It is a heritage house so not particularly quiet. Oddly they furnish water and towels, but...

Heritage waterfront guest house but close to centre and general faculties , pool, A/C . Bit of adaption but Phil the manager never let us down for the week . We really loved it if u want to get away from the impersonal local high rise . Well recommended for value for money

We enjoyed our 4 nights at the Floriana Guesthouse. The room we stayed in was basic but clean and had a lovely sea side view. I particularly loved the style of the entrance/reception area, which sends you back to the 40's, and where you can well imagine the original family of the house and theur seven daughters entertaining their guests....
