Handy location with minimal furniture and utensils
An easy few minutes walk on Esplanade to eateries,shopping, RSL and night markets. Nice views over Trinity Inlet at high tide. Staff pleasant and co-operative. Negatives - Kitchen has small fridge with no freezer, no toaster; frypan or even breakfast bowls. Very basic lounge and dining furniture with only a sofa bed for our third guest (we were expecting two bedrooms at the price) Not quite up to the standard we were expecting but we did have a pleasant stay.

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.
