Old folks dream trip

We picked this hotel because of the blogs from others, and we were glad we did! Their grounds are beautiful, their proximity to the shore was only a 5-minute walk, and they took care of our many little needs wonderfully. Their pool is in a beautiful setting. They had a delicious breakfast every morning, which we loved. Their rooms were very clean. It isn't the most gorgeous hotel on the planet, but that isn't what we needed. We were travelers who needed comfort, cleanliness, and our needs taken care of, and they did that beautifully.

Nice hotel

I would stay at this hotel again. The rooms were basic, but clean. The staff was very helpful at arranging tours. The breakfast which is included in the price is sufficient and continually restocked. I especially like the complementary shuttle bus to and from the hotel. It makes that transition much less complicated. I would definitely recommended this hotel to anyone traveling to Cairns.

Basic accommodation, close to centre

Reception closes in the evening, therefore they will leave the key in a safe box for pick up. Unfortunately there is little that can be done when there is something wrong with the room. My room had not been cleaned since the previous guest, however this was fixed the next day after communicating with the front desk. Phone was not working, AC very noisy and some crawling insects in several areas of the room. Overall a 1-2 star accommodation.

Pretty Basic

The room was pretty basic and be prepared to pay for anything that you need at this place. It was a little frustrating to have to pay for a slow internet connection along with $10 to do laundry at this place. And it isn't as close to the main area as it would appear so be prepared to walk a distance to get there.

Queens Court Cairns - value for money

The Queens Court is fine for young people, but it has 3 floors of rooms with no stairs. This was not ideal for my 70 year old mother. Location was quite fine - it is about 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown. Staff were really nice. There is no air conditioning in the rooms - not a problem as I was there in the Australian winter but possibly less than pleasant in summer. Also no ice. Wi-Fi is not free.

Good value for the price

I was traveling with my cousin (we are both in our 20's) and while we enjoy staying in luxurious upscale hotels, we found this hotel to be clean and satisfied all our needs. It had all the basic accommodations - refrigerator, coffee pot, A/C, wireless Internet (which was very nice and unexpected)....especially on a student's budget! There were also some extra perks that were nice such as the complimentary breakfast (only from 6AM to 8:30AM) and the complimentary pickup from the airport (only during the week from 9AM - 5PM). The front desk staff was always very helpful - the lady gave us good advice on what excursions to take and they always offered to arrange our bookings for us. One night when it was raining, [...] (front desk) let us borrow a couple of umbrellas, which were very helpful. Probably the main drawback to this place is the location. It is about a 20 minute walk from all the main places downtown. That can be a problem when it's raining or very hot (as it was when we were there), but if you don't need to be dressed up, or don't mind sweating or getting wet, it's not a problem. It is located on one of the main roads, but is surprisingly quiet.Overall, this place was clean, met all our basic needs, and had a decent location.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to the tourist center (I believe it is on the corner of Sheridan and Shields or Spence St) and talk with someone there about any excursions or trips you want to take either to the reef or rainforest. The lady who helped us (I believe her name was [...]) was very very helpful!

our stay at Cairns Queens Court

The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was absolutely fantastic - very helpful with directions around town, sorting out what activities we should do (and which we could skip), arranging trips, looking up transportation schedules, etc. The pool was refreshing after a hot day!
