Hotel was our base for 3 nights, sadly arrived in a tropical storm, but staff were very helpful, room was spacious & comfortable, bathroom was possibly the smallest we encountered on our long trip, needed to be very agile to get out of the shower/bath & avoiding the WC - the Plantation restuarant trully deserved it's high rating, the food was simply gorgeous , my wife rated it as the best meals we had during our long our trip

We had a lovely stay at The Hotel Cairns. The Tower Rooms were very spacious and clean, with a slight view of the Esplanade. Dinner at the restaurant was beautiful, however it did take quite a while to arrive as they were fully booked (also wedding was on so they were very busy). Staff were very helpful and friendly! Overall great stay, would definitely recommend to other people travelling to Cairns.

This place was fantastic. Very close to the city and the esplanade, the rooms are very clean and the bed are very confortable the bathroom is great.! huge living room and kitchen overlooking Staff is so friendly and helpful. There are washers and dryers in the Hotel. Perfect if you are staying for few days. The restaurant is so romantic with live music, We were only there two days, I wish we had been there longer!

we arrived to a very friendly welcome by a lady on reception which gave us lots of information on the area and reef, as this was are first time to Cairns.
We had 2 choices of rooms as we were thinking of up grading, but we stuck with the room 229, spacoius,clean.
Hotel dinner very nice.
Pool on the small side, but nice to deep your feet into after a long day sightseeing.
Over all, would go back for longer.

i was quite excited to stay at the hotel cairns during my recent trip to queensland. however, my expectations were sorely missed from the start as they lost my checked bag. after saying that my bag never arrived (i checked it myself), the front desk girl said that the bag must be with someone from my group and suggested i call EACH room to figure out who had it. on top of this, the manager (i think his name was wade) wanted to check 'the tapes' to see whether or not the bag arrived.

this is not the type of service you would expect to get from a reputable hotel and therefore would recommend that people avoid this hotel when staying in cairns. there are many other competent choices available in the area.

as mentioned in other posts, the rooms are also a bit dated.
