We have been touring Australia for three weeks and this is the best hotel we have stayed in so far. Fabulous location class she to the shops, restaurants, esplanade and marina. Great view from our room, friendly, helpful staff, breakfast buffet was good value. We were sorry to pack up and move on!

I stayed at this hotel from January 31st to 4th February. Great hotel, comfortable and convenient, but instead of giving 5 star I am giving 4 star because of the front desk clerk name John in the morning duty. on February 1st I was supposed to go to ferry for Great Barrier Reef, I asked simple question about the directions...

Dear Yogesh S Thank you very much for your review and it is great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at the Pacific Hotel Cairns.

This hotel was comfortable... this is to say it was entirely adequate for the purpose. It's not the Ritz by any means but it was clean and tidy and the location made it convenient for some retail therapy or a nice walk along the waterfront. Cairns is not a big place so there are plenty of good restaurants within walking...

Our group of 30 showed up here after traveling for a day and a half sans luggage. (arrived two days later!) The staff bent over backwards to provide some of what we needed, to direct us to where we could purchase other things and to generally help us settle in. Their breakfast buffet was very nice and was managed well....

We stayed here 4 nights after visiting Uluru, Darwin, the GHAN and Adelaide. The situation is brilliant and the room was good for the price. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our requests and we cannot fault them. The happy hour was a bonus. The room was quite high up and one could see the ocean and...

The Pacific Hotel has a great location for shops, casino and the boats going out to the great barrier reef. The near by esplanade has 4000 sqm Saltwater Swimming Lagoon and Sandy beach with a great Boardwalk along the foreshore. The hotel has a brilliant resturant which we used the first night, but eat out the rest of our time...

We had a nice private balcony in which we could view the beach front. The room had a casual beach style design with rattan-like furnishings. I would have preferred two double beds versus the twin beds that were in the room. The rooms will be in need of refreshing soon. Hotel has a couple floors with washer and dryers that...
