Hotel generally rather tired. Generous buffet continental breakfast & well priced. General lounge space to meet other guests would have been nice.

Great location for short Cairns visit
The Cairns Plaza met my need for a short trip to Cairns to dive the Great Barrier Reef. It was walking distance to the marina to take the dive boat and also within range of many nice restaurants, bars, and cafes.

Weekend break
Location, Room size and facilities, Breakfast selection
Excellent stay in sea view mini suite with all the facilities you would require. On the Esplanade with good covered parking, essential in the heat. Walking distance to a variety of eating establishments and the Night Arcade shopping.. Good pool facility.

Value for money
clean, free wifi, good location
Did not try the restaurant, so I take a neutral stand on this. The room is clean with a balcony for smokers. Friendly staff. Great location - within walking distance to the awesome night markets and a short drive away from the airport. Definitely worth staying again.
