It's probably the "Plaza" in the hotel name that may raise your expectations (The Plaza Hotel NYC anyone?) - but I'm saying temper the expectations down and you will fare great. This hotel was an adequate and budget option for what we needed which was a home base for exploring the Cairns area. It was about 12 min drive from... More

We would stay in this place again in the same room when returning to Cairns. It was perfect for 2 of us staying 5 nights. Views were great. Location was perfect, walking distance to esplanade restaurants. Enjoyed our stay.

Took a flight up to Cairns to see the GBR and stayed for 3 nights. Room was modern and spacious with a small kitchenette that was very handy. Nice patio facing the sea and walking access to everywhere. Highly recommend this hotel.. friendly staff as well

Excellent location. Great view from balcony. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Good size rooms, separate lounge and bedroom. Microwave. Newly renovated. Would be great to have a TV in the bedroom but that is a minor point.

Stayed two nights, 6th floor, rm 605. Fantastic view. Two large balconies, one off the bedroom and one off the living room. Each room is very spacious and modern. Bed is quite comfortable. The only fault was the serious lack of lighting in the bathroom and the shower is not fully enclosed so water splashed out onto the floor and... More

The hotel was clean, good location to restaurants on the Esplanade but just a nice distance away so it was quiet. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good amenities and facilities eg swimming pool with deck chairs to relax by.
