We stayed here for 2 nights and found staff friendly helpful and willing to provide detailed tourist information as well as assist with dinner reservations.
We booked our room through the Accor website and got a great deal on a King size Suite with jacuzzi tub. The room was luxuriously appointed with quality fittings and furniture. There was a sink in the separate toilet room separate from the main bathrrrom which also had 2 sinks and a lg stand up shower. The bed was very comfortable and a pillow menu was available.
I took a jump in the pool which was interesting as it is not at ground level. I enjoyed sitting in the outdoor hot tub while hundreds of bats flew overhead.
The gambling was of no interest to my wife and I and we skipped the hotel restaurants so I can't comment on them. There are cafes nearby for breakfast and plenty of tourist shops. We found plenty of very tasty less expensive restaurants that were not too many blocks away.
The water views from the room were good and we sat on our balcony and enjoyed the bay vista although there is construction underway below which is an eyesore.
Minor complaint: Parking is under the hotel and a bit of a pain as I ended up circling the hotel multiple times while we were there.
This Pullman is a great luxurious hotel for those who like gambling & opulence. For me, I liked quieter Port Douglas & the Pepper's resort in P.D. much more. I probably would not return to Cairns to stay for the night, but instead return to PD or Palm Cove.
