Certainly a great location. Centre of town and handy to all amenities and everything else you might require. Staff courteous and helpful. Good, but not flash, breakfast. Room was spacious and clean. I like the fact that the shower taps are outside the shower. Great idea!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived we had had a terrible start to our holiday and the staff were very sympathetic and so kind. For Malcolm and his crew of merry workers a huge ta muchly from Anni and Karen. We will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was really good but it would be good to see it revamped to it's original state. It is a beautiful hotel. It is central to everything. The bathroom needs a bit of TLC in the room we were in. Otherwise would recommend it to other people.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Shocking Pillows & Towels"

"Location and Price"
Location is perfect,right in the middle of the town. Walk to everything, tours, marina, restaurants, bars. Breakfast is good and very handy. Rooms are ok, perfect if you want to do it on the cheap but dont want to go to a hostel. Overall all a good cheap place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was good, and the hotel staff was really kind and very helpfui:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget accommodation in the heart of the city"
Overall very happy with stay. Excellent location enabling us to do shopping / sight seeing much easier. 10 min walking distance to the Ferry Pier from which all the reef cruises start. Only down side is the noise- lots of parties happening around and difficult to sleep before 11 PM. The complimentary breakfast is very basic but does provide fuel to […] last the morning. Overall would recommend- though some ear-muffs might help. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, quaint, good location!"
The Hides Hotel was a perfect location for us. Central to everything happening in Cairns. The 'Heritage' room was quaint, comfortable BUT not clean...due to a problem not related to the rooms cleanliness, the manager moved us to another room which was very nice AND clean! We found the staff for the most part to be helpful. The continental breakfast […] everyday was wonderful. Perhaps they need to look at the rooms as all the same and not have full services in one section and not in others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very central to everything in Cairns."
The Hides Hotel suited me perfectly. All i wanted was a room. It was no Hilton Hotel but the rooms were clean and breakfast was included in your stay. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Over all, it is a economic accomodation."
Very good location, friendly staff. However, room is very small, air condition is too noisy. And bathroom is shared with other people, not very convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
I love my holiday very much being staying in Hides Hotel Cairns, Australia, but the only thing is the rooms should be clean every day not when we tell the cleaner to clean it up. Hides has a best location in a very beautiful tropical city. it is truely a holiday destination if one see surrounding places like Port Douglas, Kuranda and ride the cable […] cars or the sky rail. Try a dream dive in a Great Barrierb Reef or a beautiful ride by night using helicopter. I have done this in Cairns. I am more convienced to take another shot to visit cairns again in aniother hotel close to the beach in Cairns. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"disappointing heritage upkeep"
no nuances of heritage renovations were present. Only instant coffee was available at breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Leaking ceiling and unfriendly staff"
The staff members of this hotel made it clear from arrival that they were completely uninterested in their guests. The older man behind the counter hardly looked up to greet us and when we got given the key (only one key for two people to use for opening up both room and hall way shower/toilet) he gave us a piece of paper with some info but didn't even […] instruct us of how to turn on the air con. He was also going to charge extra to book a taxi for us on departure. Our room was in the "old" part of the hotel, but the entire hotel was old, non renovated and lacking air con throughout. The bathrooms were really run down. The absolute worst thing about the room was the large hole in the ceiling that, as it was raining quite heavily that night, leaked through water on top of my bed. The rest of the ceiling was covered in water damage and mold. The only friendly and helpful staff member was the lovely cleaning lady at 4 am in the morning that gave us a bright smile and showed both efficiency and great customer service when helping us to check out. I have stayed in dodgy hostels with better service, cleanliness and comfortability than this. Will never return to this run down and most unfriendly hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Bad customer service and not honest"
The worst customer service I met in Australian.they changed mattress without informing. But the staff did not admit that.Genuine Expedia guest review
not clean, not what was advertised, we moved to a different hotel after 1 sleepless nightGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price, and clean."
Best thing: location, clean, and breakfast. Surprisingly hard to find hotels with breakfast included in Cairns. Very convenient location, friendly staff and enough room to move. Stayed in a superior room. View not amazing, but communal balcony makes up for that.Genuine Expedia guest review
For the price it was good value and the staff were very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Barrier reef trip"
Morning reception very poor evening recep very good, heritage 1970's standard poor room newer rooms goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay in Hides"
Very convenient location for both pickup and walk around. A very simple breakfast but it's enough. Need to fix the bed to the ground as it moved far way from the wall when you stay in bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel needed some TLC"
Hotel needed some TLC. Internet didn't work, no alarm clock and wake up call system didn't work. Cord for the TV was defective and the staff didn't respond to request to fix it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location right in the heart of the city"
Overnight stay great slept wellGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Go some where else."
The hotel would have a WI-FI connection I was told, for the ten days we stayed there it did not work. The cleaning and changing of sheets, almost did not happen. The floor of the room was never done.Genuine Expedia guest review
"SOMEONE DID NOT WANT TO LISTEN."
I book the hotel room trough Mr Owais from Hotels.com. Conditionally for the booking the room has to be private bathroom.- I insisted, and insisted on that.-.- I was assured that it will be without problem. (Mr. Owais phone the hotel).- It was stated at the reservation details receipt ..... When we arrive at the hotel the room was with NO bathroom..-Complaining […] at the reception looked useless .- Luckily the nearly manager came and upgrade the room. He finally gave us one room with bathroom. The room was dirty. The bed has loose hairs and the ceiling fan was cover by a thick coat of dust and dirty (I can send you a picture) I make a cleaning request o same kind of room service but was totally ignored in the 5 days we passed there. Same staff were nice and the veranda breakfast, of free toast and juice, very convenient and relaxed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Location, Basic, comfortable,clean,good value"
Best Location in heart of Cairns, that can't be beat. Perfect for people who wan to be out in the action rather than sitting in their rooms all day. Classic old 1890's hotel with massive 1980's internal extension covering a whole city block. Did have nice old wrap around public outdoor balcony overloooking the heart of town, if you wanted to sit and […] veg-out. Lots of street noise OUTSIDE all night because it is so central, which I didn't mind, but it's not for those who like a quite nights sleep. Double glazing the widows would solve that. Good security. Basic, clean rooms with ensuite, well serviced, TV, air-con, fan, and included breakfast on balcony of cereals, toast, tea, coffee and juice- all you need. Exceptional value for money as was very inexpensive. Would happily stay there again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice budget hotel with breakfast incl;)"
I had a nice stay in hides hotel. Perfect location minutes walk from marina, nice breakfast and staff. The only minus-It was bit loud on the weekend even with closed windows. even though highly recommended ;)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Heritage rooms should not be considered by anyone but backpackers, compared to the other part of the hotel it is dirty, rooms not serviced no cleaning done .Our bathroom sink was cracked and no plug. There should be more info on the room typesGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent value for money"
Hotel comes as advertised. Average. Hotel has some redeeming qualities such as being in an older style building, complete with screen door elevator. However the age contributes a certain dinginess which made it feel more dirty than it probably actually was. Decent value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An ok and basic hotel."
I would recommend this hotel, but with a very important caveat. Part of the hotel is the original 19th Century design, meaning that the rooms are small and do not contain a private bathroom, though my room did have a sink. There is a men's and women's room for the floor with shower and toilet stalls for privacy, which could only be accessed by your […] room key. The bathrooms were not air conditioned, so I would hate to see how hot they would get in the middle of summer. The older part of this hotel is analogous to having a single in a university dorm. It might be fine for people traveling alone or who don't mind the inconvenience. The newer wings appear to have made it to the 20th Century concept of a hotel. The veranda on the second floor of the old section was nice, but a little rundown and continental breakfast was adequate. The location is good - no more than a couple of blocks from everything. The staff was pleasant, but not exceptional. The wi-fi was out for a couple of days when I was there. Bottom line, it is an okay hotel. Go for the convenience of the location and the price, but don't go with high expectations. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"well placed but noisy"
location was very central to our needs but unless you were young and in party mode it was quite noisy until about 0230hrs and we were up for tours at 0630hrs Breakfast was good and early enough for us to have some before we left on our daily trips out of townGenuine Expedia guest review
it was all good, we'll be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant stay in Cairns"
We had a very pleasant stay for four nights. The room was comfortable and quiet, and breakfast on the veranda was very nice. The location was wonderful - we were able to walk everywhere to shopping, restaurants, and the marina. Hotel staff were very good about helping us make phonecalls and transportation arrangements.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very satisfied. We will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and cheerful"
The room was comfortable and appropriate for the price. However the room details (which were clearly stated on the printed copy with my booking receipt) indicated the Heritage room included tea and coffee making facilities. It didn't. The front desk staff told me when I enquired that there were no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms since the hotel became […] a "backpacker's" accommodation. The information needs to be updated as it is a little misleading. Apart from that I found the place matched my expectations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolute centre of Cairns"
Very central to Cairns city centre and esplanade. Front desk staff very good, I asked to move rooms as people in unit next door were very noisey and it was no problem at all. My main gripe is the out side deck surrounding the hotel seems to have never been cleaned chairs and tables are very dirty, other than this its well worth the money you paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Reef Terminal and Esplanade Lagoon"
Linen and pillows seen better days.......had old style hole in the wall A/C .which was noisy....but since the price you gave us was so good we overlooked these things.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good service and convenient location for touring. I like the supreme room which has good quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location, EXCELLENT"
Thankyou hides hotel for a comfortable stay in your hotel..Location of hotel is exellent, close to everything, inner city, markets, casino, shops, it wass all in walking distance. And you even had breakfast everyday laid out, very nice out on the verandah in the mornings. Wish I could of stayed longer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Value for money. Lovely to have an adequate breakfast and able to sit on verandah - a good start for a visit to tropical Queensland.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bad youth hostel"
This hotel is not what it promises from the description in the internet. Though it is located at a very convenient spot in town, the sourrounding neighbourhood is very loud till early (3 am - 4 am) in the morning, as there are quite a few bars located close by. The shared bathrooms are a not satisfying at all. It is not clean at all, the showers lack […] any hooks or benches were a towel etc. can be placed. Furthermore it seems to be very old - one shower head fell apart while taking a shower... The rooms are ok, the breakfast is standard as well. In total I rate this hotel as a standard to poor youth hostel. My bet is that you will find a better youth hostel for less money in a similiar location in Cairns.

Hotel was noisy on Sat night but improved during the week. Reception staff could have given more detailed information on the tourist attractions and directions when requested. A comfy chair in the room would have been appreciated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not that happy!"
Great location but very outdated and dirty. There was dry blood on the walls and main stairwell that stayed there for the whole ten days I was there. Rooms were not cleaned properly and whole place needed a good clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
