I think this hotel is a great option especially for its price. It's located right across the muddy's playground, great if you have kids and it's about 2-3 blocks away from the main section of the esplanade that has many restaurants. There's an Indonesian cafe just a stone throw away too. The standard room that we have is quite spacious, the bathroom is also quite spacious, and it has a small balcony.

Best value for location, service, friendly welcoming staff. Recommend to everyone.

All the bathrooms had something different. Either the taps were backwards, or the shower wouldn't have enough pressure, or the pot was in a strange place.

We just spent 2 nights at Cairns Plaza Hotel and really used it as a base for activities out of Cairns and up to Port Douglas. We were very impressed with the quality of the rooms (clean, comfortable and modern) and the friendliness of the staff. It is in a great location near the Boardwalk and very easy to get to and from the main areas of downtown Cairns. Parking was provided also at no cost. Overall a really nice place to stay for the price paid and would certainly come back again.

The hotel has a very good location and a lot of parking slots. Our bathroom was modern and nice, the room was a bit mixed between modern and old but still good. BUT: Don't book breakfast! It's ridiculous because you get just the cheapest (0,85$ :D) toast from coles with jam, honey and vegiemite in little plastic boxes. Furthermore, two types cornflakes and a few muffins. That's it and they call it 'intercontinental'!

Good location- close enough to main shops and restaurants, but not noisy. Spacious room. Clean and tidy. Excellent shower pressure. The shower drain was however blocked and took a while to drain. Also, the design of the bathroom made it difficult to enter. The door ironically blocks the entrance once it is open. If you were on the large side you might find it hard to get in.

Stayed here overnight after flying into Cairns. We arrived earlier than expected and were able to leave our luggage with reception, went for a quick walk and got a call saying our room was ready, much earlier than the check in time. Our room on level 6 was very clean, and the bed was comfy. Great view of the mountains! Just a quick walk to the cafes, lagoon etc on the esplanade. Great customer service from every staff member we spoke to. We would definitely stay here again!

I loved this hotel. I had 3 separate bookings and for each I asked for a quiet room, as I'm a light sleeper, and view of mountains or water if possible. First night I was given a room on the top (6th) floor, always quieter with no-one above you, and an outlook north over Cairns with views also of the mountains and some of Trinity Bay. I was really impressed at how they had taken notice of my request. I then requested this room for my other stays there during my holiday, and each time I was given... Read more

We believe the balcony was only 900mm high which we think is under standard height. It would be unsafe for children & even some adults. The hotel was noisy with raucous drunk guests on Friday & Saturday nights, yelling & arguing. Our bedroom door didn't shut as the door handle was broken, which wasn't really a problem except when the kitchen light came on in the middle of the night by itself. The bedside light didn't work either & although the staff did their best to rectify all issues, I don'... Read more
