Cairns rocks !!!

Our ist room was ok but didn't have a view so we upgraded for $20.00 more per night and was not disappointed.The room opened up to a great view of the ocean.But for the many things to see and do in Cairns, we would have been perfectly happy to just stay in our room.

Cairns - Visir

The hotel is very well located within the town of Cairns. The room are spacious well designed and clean. The bathrooms are big an include a separate bathtub and shower. The toilette is a separate room. Beds are very good. Gym is limited however sufficient and the pool area is very nice. Internet is not included in the room , is expensive and full of nickel and dime limitations, the hotel adds at payment time 2% for Credit card charge which for a 5 Star hotel is absurd. All in all great value for money!!

We scored on this hotel!

Room was very nice and spacious! Great location. Close to Reef Fleet terminal where boats out to the Great Barrier Reef leave. Right on the Esplanade. Only problem was the early morning noise - around 7 am. Sounded like a truck was dumping glass bottles into a dumpster. Lucky for us we got up early each morning...

Very Positive Experience

The Pullman Reef Hotel is a great value. Lovely, large room with all the amenities (A/C, robe, hair dryer, iron, quality bath products, spa tub in addition to a shower). The king bed and pillows were oh so comfortable. Best of all, the room was really quiet. Three powerful Macs, free for guest use--no special codes and a printer for your boarding passes. The staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. Super location: a three-minute walk from the Reef Terminal and two to three blocks from excellent restaurants for dinner and cafes for breakfast and lunch. The Casino is attached, if you want to gamble, but has a separate entrance.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you're interested in the flora and fauna, try the Wait-a-While Rainforest Tour. Pickup and return to the Pullman Reef Hotel was included as was devonshire tea with scones and clotted cream and later on dinner. The rainforest is a World Heritage Site. Our tour guide (Clayton) was awesome--pointing out mobs of wallabys, possoms, platypus, turtles; some amazing dragons. lizzards, and birds. I know I'm forgetting some. Driving home at night, he stopped for our last photo op: a 10 foot Scrub Python crossing the road.

One of the best places to stay in Cairns

Good hotel. Everything was spotless. The rooms were large and had all of the amenities including a very comfortable bed. The casino/bar were fun with a live band and lots of people on a Friday night.

Great hub for Cairns

This hotel is close to the central parts of Cairns, the docks, restaurants, and has its own casino and zoo. The only downside is the high cost of internet, which starts high and becomes metered by the megabyte.

Pullman Reef Hotel and Casino

The hotel is very clean and the rooms were extremely nice and comfortable. Pullman Reef, is in the heart of Cairns and close to everything (great location). The hotel lacks any good restaurant, however there are literally lots of restaurants across the street and within easy walking distance. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Many of the tours are north at Port Douglas or the Daintree Rain Forest, which will require bus transportation (very comfortable), the tours are worth it because you don't have to hassle with driving and the guides are very informative on just about everything, making it much more enjoyable

Not worth the price

Bad hotel experience. I paid for the Deluxe upgrade for a romantic getaway for a weekend but it wasn't what I got. The check-in was painful as the front desk didn't appear to know how to check us in - to include almost running my credit card three times. Also, they didn't brief us on what the hotel had to offer. When we got into the room, the shower door was broken. Separately, the Deluxe upgrade that I chose also boasted beautiful views of the bay...come to find out I paid for a beautiful view of construction! To top it all off when we checked out, I left a necklace in the room that had a lot of sentimental value to me. When I came back later in the day after check-out, I was told they had not seen it and although they promised to contact me back after checking with the hotel cleaning staff, the hotel never did. Staying in the hotel ruined the weekend for me. For a Five Star hotel and the price that I paid - not worth it!
