This hotel was an older facility but nice and clean and very convenient to the esplanade, reef terminal, shopping and restaurants. It had a nice breakfast each morning included in the package, pool, and laundry facilities.

Our stay was magical. A big thank you to Kieran Forsythes who made our stay tops! We chose to use the smart car on the last day there and it was amazing. We drove to Milla Milla falls and back for only $30-great saving and the car was awesome. The buffet breakfast included was great - fruit was fresh, everything was tasty !

The hotel is situated in a great position, it is very easy to walk to most places
Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Lovely place. At first sight, the carpets in the corridors looked a tad musty. But the room itself was very spacious, clean bath/toilets, prompt room service, exceptionally helpful staff - all of these set the hotel apart.
We were traveling with two young kids and the staff made sure we got what we needed to make our travel comfortable.
Friday, November 23, 2012
Very handy position . Love the Smart car included.Very friendly staff particularly Tom the handyman and jack of all trades !

Monday, November 12, 2012
Awesome location, great breakfast and comformatable rooms made for a very enjoyable stay
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Have stayed there twice and would again. It is so well situated and offers for free push bikes and smart cars plus a good breakfast. The rooms are roomy and have good quality towels and bed linen
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Breakfast was more than adequate, pool area restful and gave a sense of separation from rest of hotel. Loved being able to have use of the Smart cars
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
The front desk staff were excellent
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
What a great hotel,the building has so much character and the surroundings beautiful.Food was great, and the barramundi at the restaurant was the best meal of my trip.Thanks to the staff for such great service.
Monday, September 17, 2012
A wonderful convenient place to stay, was just dissappointed with the view from the room. Otherwise a lovely hotel.
Friday, August 31, 2012
Good central location. Clean & tidy rooms. Smart car was excellent. The word Hotel implies a pub with a lot of noise, but it was a Motel & very quiet. Would stay there again.
The package you gave me was excellent - everything ran to schedule, & all your documentation & tickets were perfect. Well done.
Thursday, August 30, 2012
All facilities,services,and location of the Hotel Cairns are of the highest standard.
This whole package is definitely fantastic value for money Well done the team at Travstar.
Friday, August 17, 2012
Rooms a little tired. Air con was noisy(reported to counter), A little more information on arrival would be helpful. Restaurant staff friendly, good service, lovely food
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
We had a great day in beautiful Cairns.The location is fantastic for strolling the esplanade and enjoying all the activities. Our 4th floor tower room was large and pleasant water glimpses from the deck.
Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Great accomodation, staff and package deal. will recommend to friends and family.
Thursday, April 19, 2012
Pleasant Hotel. Restaurant meal was excellent.
Staff friendly and rooms very comfortable.
Thursday, March 22, 2012
Very impressed with the package that Travstar put together
Good value for money and all went as planned
Not really your fault that the weather was so amazingly wet - we are not use to monsoons in the UK!
Saturday, March 17, 2012
Our stay was arranged as part of a four night package deal arranged by Travstar. The whole package was excellent value for money. Particularly enjoyed having the use of a Smart car at no additional cost. A really good day out for just the cost of the fuel.
Monday, February 27, 2012
Breakfast was too expensive even with $10 vouchers. The use of Smart car was great but no-one offered any assistance with how it worked and we had no idea about gears etc.
Sunday, January 22, 2012
The staff were very helpful, the room was comfortable, and the facillities were wonderful the smart car was useful. I realise this is not 5 Star but it was every bit as good. as the service was so personalised.
Monday, December 19, 2011
The breakfast package was fantastic,I do think the dinner meal prices are a bit rich,but I would stay again.The loction is perfect close to everything.
Wednesday, December 07, 2011
Enjoyed our stay, but the shutters do not block out the light enough, they need to fix that. We arrived at 4.30am and they let us go into our room 9 hours early! The service is fantastic, rooms are nice, bed, b/fast and aircon is nice, the car was awesome. I would stay again if the light was blocked out more.
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Great stay, handy to city. Food was great, good service, clean rooms. Air conditioning could of worked better, but overall stay was fantastic.
Saturday, September 03, 2011

Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Well positioned Hotel with very helpful staff.Rooms could be better lit and working exhaust fans fitted to bathrooms.
Sunday, August 21, 2011
Enjoyed our stay here - location handy - meals excellent - service excellent - again have reccommended to friends. Was just what we wanted. Really enjoyed Cairns City as a whole - great weather - great facilities - friendly people
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
My stay was a good experience. The room was upgraded because I stayed for more than 10 days. THe rental car was a good incentive. The dining facility was slightly disappointing because the service was slow and prices are too high. My internet connection was not available in the room, I had to do it in the hallway. Overall, a very good experience.
Monday, August 15, 2011
Great restaurant attached and great location.
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Really nice staff, great breakfasts, nice room. Would have loved a tv in the gym as there is nothing to look at down there. Would also love for the doors to be double glazed as the room was quite noisy. The car was fantastic and provided a very fun day out. Once again, great staff that really make it a nice place to be!!
Saturday, July 23, 2011
having the Smart car available was a definate benefit
Monday, June 20, 2011
Meals and service great pool evening staff lovely nothing to much trouble car was a blessing all was great
Saturday, June 04, 2011
After a week working in Cairns and staying in more corporate style accommodation I was relieved to stay at The Hotel Cairns with its more old world ambience, tropical NQ style, and enjoy a living space that had been very tastefully renovated with love and attention to detail and with consideration of climate and place. Loved the shutters and appreciated the personal service.
Sunday, April 10, 2011
Great hotel and facilities! Great location. Would definitely stay again and will recommend to friends and family. Enjoyed the hire car, glad this was available to us.
Friday, April 08, 2011
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Monday, January 10, 2011
Loved the Smart car and laundry facilities on site.
Tuesday, December 28, 2010
Use of Smart car was great. Rooms were functional and well appointed. Counter staff were helpful and friendly. My son tells me he liked the pool and spa. Meals at the resturant were overpriced for what was on offer. The restuarant would be the only reason I may not use this hotel again.
Saturday, December 18, 2010
I was very impressed with the ease of booking, the rates, the hotel and your customer service....thank you, we had a great holiday :)
Friday, December 17, 2010
We stayed four nights at the Hotel Cairns in one of their well-appointed but value-priced rooms. We must say that this hotel more than exceeded our expectations. The room and its bathroom were exceptionally clean with premium furnishings. The grounds were well attended to, and the receptionists very helpful. The Smart car fleet was available to us each day and there were no catches - just a ton of fun. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. To sum up - they over-delivered - thank you!
Wednesday, November 10, 2010
Had a fabulous time the facilities were great and the service was excellent
Sunday, November 07, 2010
A great quality restaurant and a lovely, secluded pool.
Thursday, October 07, 2010
Great location,nice & clean & good daily service, could do with some shelving/cupboards for clothes, loved the use of the smart car. We would recommend it & visit again.
Thursday, September 30, 2010
The location of Hotel Cairns is A1, making it so easy to enjoy all the dining & shopping experiences. Smartcar was a great advantage when exploring the city & further North. We found the rooms and facilities adequate and good value for money. The Staff, particularly the cleaners were meticulous. But I was disturbed by the garbage truck each morning, perhaps because my room was opposite the Restaurant and storage area. I look forward to staying here again, but I will be asking for a room away from this area.
Thursday, September 23, 2010
This venue captures the essence of Cairns.Beautiful tropical surrounds . Charming room outlook to palm covered patio. Plantation shutters add atraction.Immaculate and inviting.Close to the action. Avery personable place.Great staff.Wish our stay was just beginning. Thanks again.

The smart car ride could not be availed as they insisted rightfully so on a driving licence.We could have been informed about this requirement.
Tuesday, December 29, 2009
The hotel was execellent and the staff friendly. The use of the Smart Car was great.
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
Clean, neat, tidy and fabulous location. Handy to everything we needed, bars, shops, restaurants. We hired the smart car for two days and were able to experience the Mosman gorge and the Daintree in the north and Innisfail in the south. We had the convertible and laughed all the way its such a cute way to travel.
Monday, December 21, 2009
I was so impressed with The Hotel Cairns staff and facilities that I suggested to my company that we hold our conference at the Cairns Hotel this year.

Only stayed for 2 nights but worth it A lovely hotel, great room, had the breakfast option which was excellent.
Wednesday, October 28, 2009
Highly recommend as the perfect place to stay - will make it my destinantion for accomodation next time
Monday, October 26, 2009
Use of the smart car was great, the hotel was in walking distance to shops food and the marina
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
It was a very well located Hotel with clean comfy rooms. They do not have rooms facing the ocean. Staff is excellent. Smart car is useful but you have to buy insurance for 30$ to reduce your deductible to 500$ or risk about 1500$. Like anywhere else in Australia you have to pay for the internet.
Friday, October 16, 2009
I cannot praise this hotel highly enough. My wife and I just loved it. Great staff, great atmosphere and so well run. The use of a Smart car on 2 days free of charge was much appreciated.
Saturday, October 10, 2009
Hotel location, spaciousness and cleanliness of rooms made this a wonderful base to explore the Cairns area. The free one day use of a smart car was an incredible bonus.
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
Hotel is well positioned, service was great as was the breakfast. The Friday night supper including live band was fantastic.
Wednesday, September 09, 2009
Excellent location. Deluxe Tower room was very nice. The bathroom was nicely appointed but very small. The complimentary Smart Car would have cost $30.00 per day for insurance had we used it.
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
Lovely rooms, very clean and airy. Our son loved the pool. Location excellent close to esplanade and few minutes walk to lagoon and lots of places to eat. Would recommend it and will stay there on our next visit.
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
One of the best we have stayed in our 50 years of hotel experences.
Monday, August 24, 2009
Really enjoyed the food at the restaurant. Great location - close to town.
Monday, August 24, 2009
Though not luxurious, our room was very comfortable and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Availability of the Smart car was a bonus. We were able to see a lot more than we thought we would be able to. The hotel is in a very convenient position for walking to shops, restaurants etc. but is away from the noisy spots, so we were not disturbed by street noise.
Monday, August 03, 2009
Clean, well appointed and excellently located.
Friday, July 24, 2009
What wonderful staff, very helpful, very good breakfast, and lovely room. Would return without any hesitation. To be commmended
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
I love that they lend you the smart car for one day~ I drove that to the flying doctor and Port Douglas...and the fuel was just AUD$6 for the whole day driving!
Monday, June 22, 2009
Thought the Smart Car was great. When next in Cairns I will stay here.

The Hotel Cairns could NOT have been any nicer! We just loved the plantation styling and comfort, plus the staff was so wonderfully friendly and welcoming to us - I would recommend it to anyone traveling there!

Saturday, March 01, 2008
This was our holiday within our holiday....the hotel facilities were amazing and the location is excellent .....if we ever return to Cairns we would go back to this hotel.............overall the package we bought was excellent value for money !

Friday, August 03, 2007
Hi Jo,We had such a fab time! Thank you so much for all your help with our holiday!
The Hotel Cairns - was a real treat for us. We got upgraded to a spa room!!!! Fantastic! Breakfasts were wonderful and the Hot Rock dinner was excellent, We still talk about it! Felt spoilt at the hotel, enjoyed the stay there as it was a smaller accommodation, we don't really big Resorts. Oh yes, absolutely amazing location, we could get to the Pier in less than 15 minutes, we felt lucky to have accommodation within such easy distance to the city.We would definitely recommend all these tours to others and The Hotel Cairns. We had a great time in Cairns and now feel more familar with the area and are keen to go up again to explore further.
Jo, your help with all our holiday plans really made the experience very stressless. We felt that we were in very capable hands.Thanks again for the last minute help you gave us with changing our tour dates, we know you stayed back and we really appreciate the assistance you gave us. Just wanted to add also, how hard all the tour guides work, driving us around, sharing loads of info, preparing morning tea, lunch etc. They were always cheerful and there to help! I really admired them and their positive attitudes in showing people around beautiful Cairns. Thank you!
Emma & Chris Reeve
