Fabulous 8.6 From 632 reviews

Very good 8.0
I love the space, we have a living room with sofa and sleeping room. The tv is old, shd replace with smart tv so we can hv more movie options. Swimming pool is too small and no gym. Luckily there’s a park opposite. Overall it was a great stay

Good 6.0
Nice hotel close to the esplanade with the board walk and the a short distance away from the waterhole of restaurants and pubs. Located nicely at a non congested area.

Nice stay
Great stay here for 4 nights. Peaceful surrounding yet not too far off from the Esplanade and eateries nearby. Comfortable room with hot water supply, air-conditioning and clean towels. Best of all is the front desk staff, especially Mandy who was friendly and extremely helpful.

Price, convenience, courtesy, they have it all
The Cairns Plaza Hotel was a wonderful place to stay in. Their staff couldn’t have been more hospitable. Any problems they were only happy to help us. We had a problem with the TV, as they were changing all their TVs over they were able to move us on the same level to the same kind of room. The staff were always courteous whenever we entered or exited the lobby. Fantastic location only seven or eight minutes from Esplanade restaurant district. Very well priced for a room with two double beds. The view of Cairns harbour was pretty great. The pool was a magnificent temperature.

Enjoyed totally.
The only thing wrong was I only had one night. The view out to the ocean from the balcony was very relaxing. Walking distance to all the city eateries , shopping and CASINO. Will definitely return again and recommend anyone to pay the little extra for the ocean view.
