We stayed at the Holiday Inn Cairns for two nights in April 2011 before a scuba liveaboard trip. We had a King OceanView that was comfortable and had a good view of the Esplanade. The bathroom was tiny and there was no shower curtain which meant some water splashing on the floor or the other person trying to get ready at the sink. There were also no hand towels, only bath towels and wash cloths. The curtains were very nice in that they crossed each other in the middle and went all the way to the floor leaving the room nice and dark for as long as we liked. We prepaid for the breakfast buffet, which was good but nothing special. Overall it was a good location, clean, comfortable and we had no issues with customer service. We would visit again for a short stay. The city of Cairns itself does not offer much for activities and has no beach so when we returned from a scuba trip we spent several days a little further north in Port Douglas.
