Recent guest reviews

The hotel was very comfortable and conveniently located, and we enjoyed our stay. My only complaint was the squeaking doors. I think every room door in the hotel could do with oiling! Great free and easy wi-fi reception.

The hotel is excellenty situated - quite close to the Esplanade but within the area of free-parking. Our room (bit dated) was on the smallish size but had all essentials: fridge, coffee maker and safe deposit box. The single beds were comfortable. The staff really take into consideration the needs of their guests - they got Vegemite for the breakfast when one of the guests staying at the hotel asked for it even it is not their standard breakfast offer. As of internet we were quite disappointed: first night was OK however afterwards was coming and going and there were phases without it at all. The downsize was also that many guests get up early so there was a lots of noise in the corridor with doors slamming, shouting etc early in the morning. However all in all - it was nice stay.

The size of the room was sufficient and everything was clean. The breakfast was good and the hotel is within walking distance to the harbour. We arrived an hour earlier than expected and the room was not ready yet. The receptionist was not that helpful and waited until the official checkin time to make a call to ask if our room was ready.

the hotel is clean and comfortable. there is a swimming pool but we didn't have time to experience it, what a pity! the receptionist was good and helpful. I would recommend my friends to go there in the future! By the way, Cairns is unbelievable! awesome! I miss her so much now! 填完英文版才发现竟然要至少50个汉字,太不科学了。看在超爱凯恩斯的份上在写点在当地做了什么吧。我们是在information center 定的行程,因为怕华人旅社坑同胞,索性参加老外的团。center就在旅馆出门左拐一直走,几条街就到了。接待我们的是一个瞳孔异色的小哥哥,cool!我们第一天去了雨林night walking 看到了许多神奇的小动物,还有一只鸭嘴兽!第二天去跳伞,很快就跳完了,下午休息了会去了海边,就是market那里。第三天我们出海潜水,浮潜两次深潜一次,看到了鲨鱼海龟和鲸鱼!很多当地人都没看到过!第四天去骑马,有中文服务,很棒,工作人员一直随行,很安全。第五天,启程回墨尔本。lucky trip!对了,在center我们报的4个项目一人花了大概800刀,感觉很划算。宾馆一共两人400+刀。机票不记得了。。。

I stayed at Coral Tree Inn for 3 days recently and I have to say it is great value for money. The beds are super comfortable the bathroom (while a little small) is very well maintained and clean, I couldn't find one dirty spot in the whole room. You can see they are in the process of renovating or have just completed with freshly painted walls and new furniture. The staff are very friendly and the b/fast deal is great value for money. I will definitely be staying here again the next time I am in cairns.

We stayed here for one night recently & it was fantastic. My husband and I booked a Standard room with full buffet breakfast. The bed was comfy, the room was well kept and maintained and the staff eager to please. Especially the chef, Inda, was extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was yummy. What I can say is the hotel's location is perfectly located to access what you need to see and get to as a tourist. The hotel is facing a park, very close to a pharmacy. It’s only a short walk to the reef terminal. Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

Arrived in Jan in the rainy season for 1 night. The motel is ideally suited for the airport and walking distance to the town's restaurants. The pool looked good, but we didn't use it as we were in transit. Room was well equipped and comfy with good air con. Not sure I'd want to stay for a week especially when its raining hard. Breakfast was good. No wifi in the room only in the reception area.

We have visited coral tree inn last week and stayed for 4 nights. We opted for queen bed and what we got is 2 single beds joined together. We were not able to sleep in the bed properly due to its low quality. And also,wifi was not available in our room. We complained this to the staff, but they were helpless. Food was good. Overall, we are unsatisfied with the stay. 2/5

I feel the need to write an honest review of the rooms. They are described as newly refurbished however I assume that only applies to paint on the walls. The bedding and curtains have seen better days and the furniture is cheap and old fashioned. Grout on bathroom walls was discoloured, basically it needs a complete refurb to bring it up to modern standards. I would say the staff were very welcoming and helpful , however the rooms were very disappointing and we were glad to leave. Not a 21 Century four star standard hotel . Sorry .

We booked there as it a good location, walking distance to restaurants, markets, theatres and shops. We had a 2nd floor room facing the street and it was surprisingly quiet. We also had a small balcony. The property is dated but well kept and the pool area is nice. The room was smallish and the bathroom 1960's but clean and adequate. The staff were very friendly and eager to assist us - full points to them for customer service. They gave a discounted buffet breakfast which was satisfactory on the 1st morning. Would stay there again.
