    I picked the hotel for it's location and modest price, but wasn't sure of the quality of it's rooms, so was very pleased to find the room size and appointments represented excellent value for money. Can recommend the hotel and would not hesitate to use it again for return visits to Cairns.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the cleaning ladies and front desk staff. Room was great as we had a separate bedroom to the living areas. Bed was comfortable. Two balconies, one off the bedroom and the other off the living area, great. The motel is obviously an old one, but is very clean. We were very happy with the Cairns Plaza (our room and the staff) and the locality and will be classing the Cairns Plaza as our regular place of stay everytime we stay in Cairns. Thank You

    Could not find a toaster in the cupboards. The sofa lounge....once you sat on it, comfortable but it was hard to get out of. That's all.

    Excellent staff. Very friendly and helpful. Good sized rooms and very clean. Excellent location within walking distance to the city centre and right across the road from the esplanade walk way.

    The only thing is the hotel is a bit old and dated. But in saying that they are in the process of renovating. No cable tv which is a bit of a downer, also the bathroom is in need of a make over,

    Abit tired looking from the outside. Was upgraded to a suite which was huge, only regret that stay was only for one night. Staff very helpful.

  • Family with children

    The location was perfect, handy to Cairns City and the hospitals, where our parents were needing to attend.

    The owner with his God stick in the restaurant ruining any ambience by turning on the TV and turning the sound up. I thought this rude.
