Floriana great location on the Cairns Esplanade and lovely art deco foyer and James Mgr was brilliant but seriously my room was not cleaned at all for my arrival and all sorts of stains on a lumpy mattress!!MOST WORRYING THE FACT THAT IT IS A FIRE DEATH TRAP WAITING TO HAPPEN!!!!!

Having stayed in numerous BnBs and Guest Houses here and abroad, I was disappointed in so many things. The host handed me to a gent, who walked me up the stairs to my room, explained tge password for the internet and no more. The accomodation itself is a very tired premises, the shower space was a fibreglass shell attached to...

Charming property, a pleasant short walk from restaurants and facilities in Cairns. Peaceful location on the Esplanade just across the road from the sea and a very relaxing place to stay. Nice, well-maintained walks along the front into Cairns and the other way along the beach. Could do with a Spring clean, but that just adds to the character!

We liked this place so much that we spent another couple of days at the end of our trip. On the first visit we had one of the flash rooms at the front, with a view of the waterfront, but the rear room on our second stay was also comfortable. This is an old building, but well-maintained and clean. About...

Great location right on the Esplanade. Private home from the 1930s, Lovely place to stay. We were upgraded to a studio room, spacious and comfortable. Free wifi. Liked it enough to book again for when we return to Cairns. Only downside was that it took 30 minutes to wake up the manager to check in, despite a proliferation of bells!

Quirky, hospitable and laid back, the Florianas strikes a note of individuality in today's world of anonymous hotels. Architecturally pleasing, it's an interesting 10 minute walk from centre of Cairna. It's quiet and the pool is extremely relaxing.

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.

Thank Tricia A
