Getaway from work

Would recommend Wed, Jan 14, 2015
Have stayed here before. Was disappointed with the initial room assigned but the staff sorted it out quickly. Excellent staff, great rooms. It's just a shame the motel foes not have a guest laundry. And they should sell pure blonde beer,

Staff were good, location great. Room had a strong damp smell, old & in need of an update, patched carpet and broken lamp. Not the usual Shangri-La standard.

A tired property

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 4, 2013
Good Location. The suite was laid out beautifully. But...the carpet was stained around the edges, the last paint job was sloppy, the furniture showed wear, and the toilet didn't work. All it needed was carefully done maintenance. Hope your stay will be better.

Excellent Location for Diving Tours, Shopping, Restaurants, People and Bat Watching

Would recommend Mon, Apr 23, 2012
We booked here for two nights on either side of our one-day diving/snorkeling tour. We couldn't have been better placed, we simply dressed and walked 3 or 4 minutes to the dive boat on Pier E - the same on return to our room and hot shower. The staff was super friendly and probably the most helpful of anywhere we've stayed. I was also able to grab a last minute swim suit at the collocated shopping center. We had a balcony room which overlooked the ocean, the bath was large and clean, the bed super comfy, and the best restaurants in town all within a few minutes walk.

Dining

Barnacle Bill's had great seafood, and the Asian markets nearby offered souvenirs at reduced prices.

Brief stop in Cairns

Would recommend Wed, Apr 4, 2012
The hotel was beautiful and in a fantastic location....right on the coast, and within steps of the ferry building. We had taken the ferry to Green Island for a couple of days, so this was very convenient. The only problem with the Shangri-La was the guy at the concierge/local travel desk. He told us it was not possible to rent a car on Sunday, that all the car rental places were closed. This was not true....we wanted to drive north, and so DID find a car rental place that was open. We had a great day and enjoyed the cool weather and great sights north of Cairns, instead of the hot steamy weather in Cairns.

Dining

Get outta town! We rented a car and drove an hour or so north to Palm Cove, Port Douglas and the southern part of the Daintree rainforest. Cool! Have lunch at Vivo in Palm Cove, and a sunset view dinner at On the Inlet in Port Douglas. We enjoyed an Australian chardonnay and ate a big bowl of fresh boiled prawns while watching the sun set -Wow!

Would recommend Wed, Feb 29, 2012
Good hotel experience, helpful staff. Odd hotel floor plan. Had to take two elevators to reach 4th floor room. Elevators separated by long hallway. Room well configured and very nice for our needs. Very safe. Clean.

Money saver

Woolworth's supermarket is 4 blocks away and a good way to avoid some of the high price of meals near the hotel.

Great Location for Daily Excursions

Would recommend Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Within minutes to docks so daily trip excursions to great barrier reef was just walking down the street. Also walking distance to esplanade lagoon and shops and restaurants. Staff was great and very friendly. Room was large but the condition of the bathroom was a little worn down from over the years. I was expecting a little more for a 4-5 stars hotel.
