5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very convenient to the pier and boardwalk. Great spacious clean quiet room. We highly recommend it.

Hotel had a convenient location. Staff was friendly & accomodating. I saw bugs several times in the room which skeeved me!!!

The room was the one with a king size bed. It was a good looking room very comfortable. It looked like the picture. The room had a sliding wall that can close the bathroom side from the bedroom side. Or if you wanted you could open the bath side so you can see out into the room and out the window from the tub. Tub was tub with jets it would be tight for two. Shower was the best. Tall shower head about 6'8'' off the ground. It had a separate hand held nozzle. Room for two in shower. Bed was firm. Refrigerator was small and filled with stuff they had for sale. I was able to add 2 bottles of my own water. Sun deck on this floor was bigger than other floors and looked over the pool (519). The ones next to me would be center of pool . You couldn't see the ocean water from the deck not sure what higher decks can see. It was a great place to view the 6:50 pm bat fly by that lasted 40 minutes. The lobby is being worked on but my room and price made up for that. This hotel is walking distance to shopping and water front. Five star Hotel just a little deducted for lobby remodel. Looks like they will be done soon.

Hotel was very good. Breakfast should have been included in the rate.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Great hotel staff.. concierge helpful in setting up several tours for us. Only bad thing...limited on internet usage... only 30 minutes per day.

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
