Resort hotel blends modern design with traditional Queensland style

The resort hotel is one of the most beautiful properties in Cairns. The exterior is classic Queensland while the interior merges the modern with traditional plantation details. Hotel amenities include a restaurant, snack bar, swimming pool and whirlpool, fitness center, and terrace lounge.

Highlights

Rooms

The 92 rooms and suites at the Hotel Cairns feature plantation shutters, modern color schemes that blend deep browns with sea greens and other colors from nature, and comfortable plush, wood, and rattan furniture. The tower rooms and suites are the hotel's most spacious accommodations. Tower rooms and suites all have private balconies. Other amenities include ceiling fans, work desks, and flat-screen televisions. Luxurious bathroom amenities include Molton Brown toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers. Wireless Internet access is available in rooms (fees may apply).

Features

Guests can hide away from the world at the hotel's top-notch resort facilities or -- thanks to its location in the heart of the central business district -- step out the door and enjoy all that Cairns offers. The hotel is just a few minutes on foot from the departure point for Great Barrier Reef boat trips and the restaurants, cafés, and shops that line the Cairns Esplanade.

 

The Plantation Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. The restaurant's chefs rely, as much as possible, on locally sourced ingredients from the Coral Sea and Queensland's farms. The Plantation Bar puts local fruit to work for its creative cocktail menu.

I stay here a lot, great place.

Excellent value for the money. I travel through Cairns often for business and this is one of two hotels in town that I've found have the best value for the money. And the free wifi is a nice perk.

Good Place to stay

The room was good nothing fancy but clean with internet and an air conditioner that you can control the temperature and fan speed. Other motels I have stayed in Cairns the A/C is pre-set with temp. and fan speed and you can do nothing about changing the setting. It is either all or nothing. Good location within easy walking distant to downtown.
