          Great Service

          We have a great stay at Tropical Heritage Cairns. Rosemary and colleague were exceptionally helpful in assisting us in our tour bookings; giving very useful tips and advise. She gave us a petrol discount voucher when we asked her for direction to petrol station. Hotel is a short drive from the Esplanade and shopping malls. Small but lovely hotel with very clean rooms and comfortable beds. The room has a basic kitchen with microwave, though a stove could be useful. We used the free BBQ facilities and have a great BBQ dinner. Will stay in the hotel again.

          Booked a 5 night stay with Tropical Heritage for a business trip to Cairns, chose the hotel for it's convenient location to the city and the facilities I was needing. Great price, well kept and within walking distance to a range of activities and facilities. Staff were super friendly and helpful, and even rang me when I was running a bit late for check in to see if everything was goin OK. Washing facilities available and rooms serviced daily. Would highly recommend.

          We really enjoyed our time at Tropical heritage Cairns. The hotel staff were brilliant and went out of their way to help. We checked in at 10am in the morning after an early flight and we were offered our room 4 hours early. The rooms were interconnecting for the 2 couples and the facilities were clean and everything worked. The staff all care about guests and made our stay a great one. Highly recommend the hotel.

          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.

          Stayed here twice on the way to Thursday Island and on way back - compared our stay with friends who stayed elsewhere; we by far got the best value and had the better room and friendly staff. Cairns is very competitive for accommodation as there are far more rooms available then needed so its good to find a place like Tropical Heritage with their high standard.

          we had a very nice stay here. the location is central, easy walking distance to the main attractions in cairns. we wanted to take a day-trip out of cairns and they gave us a better price than the one we saw in a tourist brochure. they took care of the reservation themselves. friendly and efficient service. the room was nice. we missed a bread toaster in our room for our daily breakfast (the only -very minor- drawback of our stay).

          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.

          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!

Obviously a small independent hotel but everything you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Would stay again and highly recommend in future

          Needed to stay somewhere as a base for diving. This was perfect. Good value, quite near the centre and the seafront. Also I always prefer a locally managed well run hotel over a big chain as friendly knowledgeable staff who care add a couple of stars to the official rating and really help make your stay. Rosemary, the proprietor, didn't disappoint and if I come back to Cairns I would stay again.

          Budget hotel in Cairns”

          Pros : Reasonable tariff for city hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. 5-10 min walk to the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon. Breakfast at an additional surcharge (did not try it). Cons: Pool area very small and garden area seemed a little neglected.

          We had a lovely three days here whilst exploring Cairns and the surrounds. The hotel is well placed to walk to the Esplanade and the shops and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helped us with booking trips etc. The internet was also free and this made things much easier for us.

          We had to stay in Cairns unexpectedly over a period of a week. This hotel was by a long shot the best we had stayed in and we only wish we had discovered it earlier in the week. Staff were exceptional and hotel very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. Janine and Paul

          Great location short work to CBD. Short walk to the Cairns Private and General Hospital, great place to stay if you are in Cairns for medical.
