"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. "

"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."

"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. "

"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. "

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.
