Enjoyed our stay. A great location close to central Cairns. Excellent clean rooms and very helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately the restaurant was having a remodel while we were there, otherwise 5 stars.

My partner and I stayed here early January 2021. It is a comfortable hotel close to a great variety of shops and restaurants. The rooms were standard - two double beds that were easy to sleep on. The staff were nice and professional making sure our stay was comfortable. This is a great budget option for travellers

We stayed for ten nights over the Christmas and New Year period and could not recommend more highly. Very centrally placed on the Esplanade, we were able to stroll to nearby cafes and restaurants. The bed was deliciously comfortable, the place was spotlessly clean, the harbour view was magnificent and the staff - from maid service to front desk - was second to none.

We stayed 4 nights at cairns plaza hotel. My husband and I both really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were very clean and serviced everyday. We had a great view from our 5th floor ocean view suite. Great value for money. Walking distance to everything. We would definitely stay again. The only negative I found was the pool area. It wasn’t cleaned once during our stay. Clumps of leaves in the bottom of the pool. Tree debris over the table and just needs some TLC. But overall was very happy with everything else. Thanks for a great stay.

Dear 777tamarab Thanks for your review. Always pleased to hear our guests have enjoyed there stay with us. Our Ocean View Suites are second to none offering the views of the Trinity inlet, nothing better than sitting on the balcony watching the world go by and all the boats coming back into harbour. I have taken on your comments with regards to the pool and will speak with our grounds crew. Thanks again, we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Take care and safe travels.

The Cairns Plaza Hotel is within walking distance to restaurants, night market and RSL.Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating, rooms were very clean and beds were most comfortable. A stroll on the foreshore was very pleasant. BBQ areas on the foreshore where very clean.
