My requests were not only met, but exceeded!”

Great location with great service!

we were upgraded to an apartment room which was a lovely surprise as we arrived into cairns late in the evening. the room was very clean & comfortable. nothing seemed to be a problem for the very friendly staff, all my requests were met promptly & efficiently! disappointed we didn't have more time to spend in the spacious room fully equipped with modern facilities. the air-conditioning unit however was quite noisy during the evening but the lovely, pleasant temperature of the room during the day/night surpassed the noise. definitely stay at cairns harbour lights in future trips to cairns & have recommended to family & friends. thanking you for our pleasant stay.

Location, standard of the accommodation, facilities.

Cairns Harbour Lights is an ideal base to explore the area in and around Cairns. The accommodation gives the flexibility to cook for yourself or eat at many of the great dining facilities around the apartments. Cool and airy with 5 star hotel room cleaning services so you just have to worry about having a great holiday. We will stay at the Cairns Harbour Lights next time we are in Cairns.

Great hotel in a great location.”

Location, Staff and Ease of access to water sports.

The stay at the Cairns Harbour was perfect. I had an apartment style hotel with a balcony and nice harbour view and it was close to all of the restaurants, which were all very nice (but definitely make reservations for the restaurants) and busy. The hotel has a restaurant at the bottom which also has decent food and a nice bar. (Closes a little early though if you are like me and like late night caps). There is a convenience store about 10 meters from the hotel so that can be changed. The pool and fitness center were decent and what you would expect from a hote. The thing I liked best was that you could walk out and literally be on the launching point for all of the water sports including the Great Barrier Reef tour (which we did). The only thing that I did not like was that we had to rent a modem (security deposit was refunded)for the internet, but this is also a double edged sword because it meant that we where the only ones who had access to that internet. Also this was a full size apt. with washer and dryer for about 120 per night which I think is a steal. I would recommend this hotel 10 times out of 10. I travel almost every two weeks, so please understand that this is not a fluke recommendation. AD

Relaxing and comfortable”

Friendly staff. Spacious room. Can-do attitude.

The thing that really set the Cairns Harbour Lights apart from other hotels is how accommodating and friendly they were. For instance, they let us borrow towels for our 3 day scuba diving trip - "No problem!" was their response to the request. They not only let us store luggage with them while we were on the scuba trip, but our luggage was waiting in our new room when we returned. When we walked in lobby upon our return, they recognized who we were before we had a chance to even speak and handed us a paper to sign. One quick signature and we were checked in and headed to our room. I simply can't remember being treated better by any hotel I have ever stayed in.

Location is spot on..rooms were spotless & value for money

Our friends and I were in Cairns for a hen/stag weekend.Our friends had chosen other more & less expensive places to stay but I felt we did very well staying at Harbour Lights. Its great value for money with everything one would expect from a 4 star hotel. It's an extremely convenient location, our room was spotless, the staff were very helpful so I can't fault the place. My partner & I will definitely look it up the next time we come back to Cairns.

A hotel perfect in almost every aspect !”

Very pleasnt hotel, well designed room and complete facilities !! Great location and decent price !

Stayed at the hotel over the week end & had a great time ! The first impression that strikes me was how spacious the room is. THe room area must be about 18 feet X 24 feet. The room is well designed too - complete with a small kitchen, dish washing machine, microwave, stove and all the needed cutlery and utensil. There is also washing machine, dryer, iron & ironing board - all the things you need are complete !! In terms of location - it is located right at the Esplanade and the boat terminal. Food, shopping are a breeze - all within 10 to 15 minutes of walking. And if you are booking a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef, which you must when come to Cairns, the catamaran / spped boats are all within 5 muntes from the hotel !! Like to try your fortune in Cairns Casino - it is 2 minutes walk away !! So are some of the best alfresco restaurants in Cainrs Lastly, the staff at the hotel were wonderful - they were very helpful and friendly.

Underwhelming Hotel with awesome location and views”

I was disappointed with Harbour Lights, the only 2 great things about it is its location, and the harbour views if your lucky enough to get them. Other than that its not a great place to stay, the rooms are old and dated and in need of a renovation. I don't like leaving negative reviews but I feel obligated to be truthful , the overall service could have been better, there was an issue but I don't want to go into details here. As I said above the Hotel is old and dated, but the prices charged don't reflect that, I felt it is not good value for money, when I go to cairns next I will be looking elsewhere. Patricia on the reception was great. Really lovely lady, she really knows how to make a guest feel welcome.

Good Afternoon Christopher, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Sebel Cairns Harbour Lights. I am very sorry that you were dissapointed with your experience. I have spoken with the team and do apologies that we missed servicing your room during your stay, this is unusual and I do apologise sincerely that this occurred. As we are just servicing our rooms currently on request, that we missed yours is very disappointing. The hotel, including your room was refurbished in 2016, and is one of the newest hotels in Cairns so I was surprised that you found it dated, but I appreciate your feedback and will share it with our owners. Thank you again for letting me know. If I can ever assist in any way in the future please do contact me direct and please do let me know if I can assist in any way. My sincere apologies again.

Perfect honeymoon experience in Harbour Lights”

Good sea sight, comfortable room, and convenient to the Lagoon and the quay.

It's our best decision to choose Cairns Harbour Lights hotel for our honeymoon journey. We felt so comfortable and happy here, and enjoyed the time during our 4 days stay in it. We will strongly recommend this hotel to our fiends indeed.
