Excellent Service (Thanks Mandy!)
I had a lovely experience at the Cairns Plaza Hotel. It was a great location, clean and the service was wonderful. Mandy was an absolute DELIGHT! Her bright smile always greeted me as I came into the hotel and she was beyond helpful in planning tours and transportation. I would highly recommend staying here!

Excellent Stay in Cairns
We truly enjoyed our stay at Cairns Plaza. The location can’t be beat and there were no surprIses as the property and room were just as pictured. The room was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was perfect to come back to for a good nights sleep after long days exploring in and around Cairns. The front desk staff were friendly and ensured we had everything we needed throughout our stay. We will stay here again when we return to Cairns and highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the area.

Good deal at the end of Cairns
Only spent one night here before boarding a live aboard dive boat the next dat. The hotel is at the end of the esplanade but since Cairns is not a big downtown area everything is within walking distance. The hotel looks older but it does appear there has been effort made to keep the hotel updated. It was clean and comfortable and worth the price
