Just a one night stay but the reception staff were very helpful and friendly plus the room was a good size and well appointed given the rate we paid.

Mike | August 28, 2018

The hotel is in a great position, only a couple of blocks from the Esplanade, where there is a variety of restaurants to choose from.

Valerie | August 22, 2019

Close to the city, it's quiet, the staff are friendly, it's value for money and the rooms are always clean.

          Good value for money good location ”

          This motel is located only two blocks to the esplanade and a 10 minute walk to the night markets. The staff are friendly and I would always have a chat when walking in and out and whilst the rooms are basic they are clean and the beds and pillows are comfortable. The pool is more of a plunge pool but there are some sun lounges to lay on too. Breakfast is available from about 7-9 am . I changed rooms midway during my stay due to noisey people next door but again this was not an issue with the staff. I checked out early in the morning for a 6.45am flight. Flight ended up being cancelled and there were no issues with me coming back and letting me have the room again. If coming to Cairns again I would stay here.

          The shower head was mounted lower on the wall so had to lower my body to get my head under the shower and i;m not a tall man either. They said a continental breakfast is available at 7am. Bit staff didn't open the kitchen till 7:15am. Which meant the hot water urn wasn't turned on so no coffee.

          Staff were really nice and friendly, and the hotel is conveniently located, easy to access and a short walk from Cairns centre and restaurants. Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. Unfortunately I got trapped in the bathroom of my room (door handle was broken), but after I was freed I was moved to a suite in compensation. Only gripe is that the shower head was at a fixed height, just level with my shoulder!

          Location, front desk service, quiet and comfortable

          We had a great stay at TH. Rosemary is a friendly, knowledgeable and sympathetic manager who went out of her way to ensure we were as comfortable and happy as could be. Whilst she is always efficient and highly organised, she manages to maintain a relaxed family atmosphere and always has time to chat or share her experiences and recommendations, which are boundless. I was recovering from a serious illness when I arrived and the support began via email several days before, as she made calls on my behalf and provided essential information regarding local medical care. This attention to detail continued later on as she booked trips and reserved tables for us. The hotel has been recently refurbished, and is comfortable and quiet. Only criticisms are the lack of free wi-fi (but this is, disappointingly, still the norm in Australia, and TH was considerably cheaper than Sydney); the shower heads are fixed and set way too low; the TV reception / choice was not great; and it's a bit of a hike into town (15-20 mins) if you don't enjoy tropical walks (however the Esplanade boardwalk is at the bottom of the street and makes for a lovely stroll into town at sundown). These are negligible concerns though given the value and level of service provided, especially compared to more expensive options nearby. Recommended.

          Rosemary, Location, Cheap Internet

          It's true what everyone else has to say about Rosemary--she's an absolute delight. Friendly, knowledgeable, and always present. Oh, and patient, which is good, because somehow the combination of my Macintosh computer, my company's timecard system, and Heritage Cairns wireless service just did not like to work together. She was great about fixing me up with replacement internet access and service, at the most reasonable rates we got in Australia (well, besides the one free place, which had to be used in the lobby in Gold Coast). She set us up with towels for our diving, loaner umbrellas to meet the unseasonable very heavy rain, and plenty of advice. Heritage Cairns is just a few steps off the main thoroughfare, but it's worth the extra block of walking.
