Nice Stay

I stayed here after a 4 day liveaboard diving trip so I was dead tired. It's close to the esplanade so you can walk to most of the restaurants in 10 min or less. The room was average but reasonably priced.

Perfect vacation hotel

The Harbor Lights hotel is the perfect place to stay in Cairns. It is close to all attractions and right on the harbor so you can walk to the reef ferrys. The hotel room was an apartment with the ability to cook and do laundry which is a big plus as food is very expensive in Australia. The view of the harbor was fantastic and the service always prompt and friendly. The room was clean every day and there were no problems.

Harbour Lights Hotel - Cairns

Great stay at Harbour Lights! We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment there, definitely worth it to upgrade to 1-bedroom. We got a room on a higher floor with a view of the Harbour, and they even allowed us to check in very early. Reception: The reception desk was amazing, very helpful, courteous and professional. They helped us plan our activities, and booked our tours...and gave us very helpful information on the different options (opinions + reviews) for heading out to the Great Barrier Reef and to Kuranda. Location: Location of the hotel is AWESOME, very close to everything you need -- convenience store, harbour restaurants, harbour port where ships take off for Great Barrier Reef, casino across the street, and internet cafes. Highly recommend a stay in this location. Cleanliness/apartment maintenance: The apartment is overall quite nice, quite spacious and modern. The only thing is that the towels had stains on them and the bed decorative sheet (roll of decorative fabric placed on end of bed) was dirty and stained. So I would say that they need to be more meticulous with their cleaning. We asked for new towels and they sent them up immediately, and these were clean. Overall, I was say this was a great stay! We had a wonderful time in Cairns!
