Lovely rooms, very clean and spacious and well equipped. However, the COLD spa pool was a huge disappointment for our family. We had planned on a soak in a hot pool at the end of eachh day as part of our holiday. The manager seemed surprised that we expected the spa pool to be heated but several locals have said...

Do NOT book this hotel by accident. This is NOT Best Western Cairns Central Plaza Apartments across from the shopping mall. This is a DIFFERENT hotel and not up to scratch. It is a FAR walk into the city and the room felt low class. There is also no elevator so you will have to haul your luggage up several...

Dear TheSCOTTMan, Thank you for giving us your views. We very much regret that you booked our property under the impression it was somewhere else. We are the only property in Cairns named Best Western Central Plaza Apartments, although there is another Best Western property with the word “Central” in its name nearby. We are just 1.6km along the Esplanade...

Dear Switchedoff, Thank you, Kirsten Palmer for giving us your views. I am very sorry you were upset by aspects of your stay and I would like to explain the reason for the tariff charged. You were booked in under a special Queensland Health corporate rate as negotiated with us by your employer. This rate is for single occupancy. However,...

Well priced and very clean. Rooms are spacious and have a full kitchenette. Air conditioners are excellent and plenty of parking. Probably the only let down is no lift and I was on the second story. It's a lot of stairs with a heavy suitcase. I will definitely stay again but this time request a lower floor.
