Cairns Sunland Leisure Park Hotel
Greater Cairns,Cairns - View on map
"The location and the facility was much better than I expected. I definitely was pleasantly surprised. The room is large and it has everything you need as mentioned in the other reviews. The location is quiet and I did not feel it was unsafe at any time. It is a bit remote but the Esplanade is a 2 km walk or so and it is probably 4 to the center of Cairns. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We had a need for an additional bed and they reacted promptly to satisfy our need. They did even more. An excellent experience. Certainly not a 5 star hotel but a great value for money. "

Sunshine Tower Hotel
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"Great priced hotel in Cairns. Clean, comfy beds and friendly staff. Our room was facing the main street and it was noisy due to traffic. If you can, get a room facing the pool as its much quiet. The hotel is slightly far from the restaurants and the esplanade. Apart from the noise and the location, this is a great budget friendly hotel."

Ramada By Wyndham Cairns City Centre
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"This hotel is located in an idyllic position with regard to accessing the main sights of Cairns. It is convenient and close to the main attractions and amenities. The room in which I stayed was clean and well maintained with lovely fresh linen and a supremely comfortable bed. Noise pollution was kept to a minimum thanks to heavy blinds covering the windows of the eastward facing rooms. The staff were friendly and amenable if help was requested. The pool is in a central location with regard to all the rooms and is well maintained. The management are lenient with regard to check-out time. All in all, my stay at the Cairns Hotel was enjoyable. My discounted Agoda rate of $100 per night was reasonably good value for money, with all factors considered. "

Crystalbrook Bailey
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"Of course, the cleanliness and location are the best among Carins. Walkable distance to the reef terminal and night market as well as very close to the supermarket (woodward's). The facility is great, we can connect whatever the device onto the big TV screen in the room to enjoy our night. This is the best part, the staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. We happen to enjoy too much in the hotel and left our house keys. We realised it after we check-out and called the staff for help. They put the effort to find the key for us and even email to our place. We are very appreciated. We cannot pick any drawback at all."

Aspect Central Motel
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"I was pleasantly surprised the room contained microwave, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, air conditioning, fridge, tea, coffee, crockery and cutlery and free wireless internet - all for a very moderate price. The centre of Cairns was a pleasant walk away. Access to bottle shop, convenience store, laundry, gym, and many other services were within stone throw. Motel swimming pool provided welcome shady relaxation. Staff were most helpful and friendly and professional. Glad I selected this Motel. Three interesting parts of Cairns that the traveller may easily overlook are in the near vicinity of this Motel: 1. The McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery 2. Monstrous statue of Captain Cook 3. Section of what I presume to be Cairns-to-Kuranda railway."

DoubleTree by Hilton Cairns
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"I am very satisfied with our stay at Holiday Inn Cairns Hotel. It is close to the airport but very quiet and yet so close to everything-public transport at the doorstep, church across, seafood buffet in a nearby hotel, RSL, short stroll in nearby good restaurants (plenty to choose),weekend fresh market,short taxi ride to casino, wharf to great barrier reef, Cairns railway station to take Kuranda Scenic Railway and most of all friendly and attentive staff and wide variety of superb breakfast. Thanks to the following staff-Jovelyn from the Restaurant, Akane from the reception, the concierge and housekeeping. I will definitely come back to this hotel and will recommend this to our family and friends. "

Hilton Cairns
Cairns City Center,Cairns - View on map
"I've had the best stay at Hilton. The receptionist upgraded me to an ocean-view room (awesome!), and the room was spectacular. The view was excellent, and the breakfast selections were delicious - everything for everyone. I booked all my adventure trips just downstairs near the reception area, and I got to do all the must-do things in Cairns. I got to use the pool, although the gym equipments were quite old and unmaintained. The location of this hotel is awesome - right outside is the harbour and shops/restaurants close by. The staff were excellent - props to the desk staff, breakfast staff, and the nice housekeeping lady. I wanted to just stay in the hotel, but there were lots of things to do while in Cairns - Kuranda, Great Barrier Reef, etc. Staying at Hilton really made my stay in Cairns unforgettable. "

Imagine Drift Palm Cove
Palm Cove,Cairns - View on map
"The apartment was so well equipped for our family. Very close to restaurants, cafes and beach. Good sized apartment. The only improvement would be if perhaps the pool was solar heated it could be used all year round as it was a little cold and not many people were using it. "

Palm Royale Cairns Resort
Greater Cairns,Cairns - View on map
"I definitely recommend Palm Royale Cairns Resort! They have the best customer service I've experienced (and I've travelled a bit)! Prior to the trip, a family member became quite seriously ill and as a result, I had to forfeit my flight and only enjoyed 2 out of the 4 day's planned. However, much to my surprise, when I rang to ensure my final 2 night's accom. were still available, one of the hotel staff kindly offered not to incur any charges for cancelling the first two night's and even refunded the money, via Agoda, for the first two night's. I was able to enjoy two nights at the resort and was delightfully surprised at the standard of their pool view rooms - they were clean, comfortable and probably at a 4-star standard. one of the hotel staff was always helpful and went over and above to assist us with our enquiries. Overall, Palm Royale provided a great start to a lovely break in Cairns. Thanks to all the staff there!"

More about Cairns

The tropical city of Cairns is one of Australia’s most popular vacation destinations, located on the northeastern coast of Australia. The city is only an hour from the Great Barrier Reef by boat, so most travelers use Cairns as a jumping-off point to see more of Northern Queensland’s natural features or learn more about the Great Barrier Reef at Reef Teach

Cairns is a relaxed coastal town that welcomes a large number of international tourists every year. Life in this city mostly revolves around days spent at the beach, but travelers will also find other more adventurous pursuits as well. Great Barrier Reef and island cruises of every kind are available from the pier, as well as four wheel drive and eco tours, wine tastings, bird watching, and golf for those staying on the mainland.

Cairns is a great place for fishing enthusiasts, as the city offers a variety of fishing activities and is known as the black marlin capital of the world. The Cairns Tropical Zoo is a favorite among tourists, and especially popular among families because of the interactive experience it offers young explorers.

While Cairns is by no means a party city, it has plenty to keep night owls entertained.

To get into Cairns, most travelers arrive via Cairns International Airport, only seven kilometers from town.

There’s much more to see and learn about Cairns, and the interactive map is a great way to continue uncovering all the important landmarks and attractions of this vibrant city.
