Great simple hotel
Great location. Room on the 10th floor was fabulous. Room on the 4th floor 2 nights previously was great. Room had great facilities. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. All in all great value and would recommend highly!

Harbour Lights, Cairns
Really enjoyed our stay at Harbour Lights, room was spacious and had all the amenities we needed. Having the kitchen facilities and the washer/dryer was a real bonus. The staff were great, very helpful and when we needed to change our travel plans they changed things around which allowed us to stay in the same room. We would stay at Harbour Lights again if we were in the area.

Exceptional 10.0
Great last stop on our road trip
We arrived in Cairns to a friendly face at reception and that attitude was there throughout our stay. Staff were very helpful with questions and the odd issue we had with excursion and getting to airport. Room was nice and clean, balcony overlooked the water and hotel is close to some lovely restaurants. Walkable to the Lagoon and town centre (Woolworths 10 min walk away). Comfy bed, nice bathroom and shower, very happy. (weather was not their fault apparently).
Phil, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Unfortunately the cyclone spoiled our trip.
Unfortunately we were in Cairns during the cyclone and the worst weather recorded for over 20 years. We didn't see much of the local area but what we did see we liked. Plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars. Not quite as expensive as Sydney.
