Exceptional 10.0
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.

Relaxing getaway from work
Relaxing enjoyable stay and our one bedroom apartment with sea view balcony was newly renovated and really clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the Marina and lots of restaurants and we brought our own breakfast which saved a few dollars. Will return for another getaway next year for sure, great value for money.

friendly staff and great location
This is a well located, comfortable and clean hotel from which to enjoy the glamorous Cairns waterside. The thing that elevated this hotel was the reasonable tariff and friendly staff. Both the lady at check in and the gentleman at check out were friendly and helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay!
