The Casino, Reef Terminal, and the Kuranda Railway Station are all easily accessible from the hotel. Here, guests can enjoy the Great Barrier Reef tour via Hides Hotel Cairns tour booking or from numerous tour groups in the city. For other sightseeing option, visit the Daintree Tropical Rainforest for an outstanding nature adventure. Restored in 1997, the hotel now features modern amenities while retaining its colonial charms. Feast upon the delicious and complimentary continental breakfast from a unique vantage point on the verandas overlooking the city. Hone your diving skills before venturing to the reef at the on-site dive pool and stay in contact with friends via the 24-hour Internet cafe. The Hides Hotel Cairns is a splendid venue for experiencing Cairns and the surrounding natural beauty of tropical North Queensland.

Value for Money

Location accesibility, value for money, Very friendly and accomodating Front Desk personnel
Our friends recommended this hotel due to accessibility and value for money. The place, though old, is a good option to contrast all the new or high end options around the area. If you're a traveler that would like to have a decent place to sleep or stay after a day's hectic schedule, then this is a good place for you. Maybe not a good place if you're travelling with kids. There's no recreational area within the hotel, but few meters away is a playground that kids would love. If you're a traveler requiring all the fancy features of a hotel, then look for other options around the area.

Barely acceptable

Location at city centre, travel agents nearby, supermarket nearby
The staff offered me a room in the old wing of the Hotel. The room was big but old. I stayed for 8 night but there was no house keeping. Shared toilets are sometimes dirty.
