Only stayed here for one night (thank goodness) the beds are so uncomfortable, the doors all slam which you can hear very loudly as there seems to be no soundproofing. The shower was horrible, it just dribbled out of the attempted rain shower head. In the upside, the rooms look nice as they have been revamped. The location is pretty...

This hotel is a very nice and not too big hotel which is very near to the beach and ocean. We had a suite, which had a large balcony and from our balcony we had a great view over the ocean and the mountains. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

We stayed here again with our two teenage children. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is in a great location with muddys across the road and the cafe at muddys serves lovely food. It is a short walk along the esplanade to the restaurant strip. We will stay here again.

Even in the rainy season, lodging is on the expensive side in Cairns. The Cairns Plaza Hotel has a decent rate for what it offers. The location is across from the water and my room had an ocean view. You're a few blocks from the marina and downtown action. There's free parking, a smallish pool and decent WiFi. The rooms...

Room was spacious and clean with a nice modern bathroom unfortunately not a sea view. A bit of a kitchen area which was good so you could buy a few basic none cook food for breakfast or lunch. Good location close to the sea, Esplanade and Broadwalk. Quite close to restaurants and bars but a good 20mins to mariner and...

Room was very neat and spacious. Within walking distance to heaps of restaurants and the beachside esplanade. Although hotel is old it had been renovated nicely. Ticked three key items: modern decor, good bed and fast wifi.

I always seem to be up here at least once a year. In the last three years I have stayed at the Cairns Plaza Hotel over other Hotels in Cairns. I like the area it is safe and close to the Esplanade, Marina and Hospital. Rooms are clean and spacious. Do yourself a favour and upgrade to an Ocean Suite...

Insufficient light in the main room as there where no downl-ights. Lights in bathroom where in the wrong location to get a decent shave. No space to rest vanity bag apart form on top of the toilet seat Open the restaurant for breakfast on time and provide sufficient staff to greet as well as cook.
