Quantas Vacations booked the hotel for us. Liked the location.Breakfast at the hotel is great. Full Australian breakfast served 50% off for hotel guests.There is only one restaurant in the hotel which is a Brazilian steakhouse. So if you are looking for a different menu better walk. Short walk to the esplanade and Reef Pier (by the way has a...

This hotel was in a good location and had some good features. BUT...it was not particularly clean, there was hair on the bathroom floor when we got there, and the cleaning service didn't change all the sheets during our stay (just the top sheet). Also, the water pressure was absolutely terrible, as was the shower head. It was hard to...

Hello oztravellers_13 Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I was pleased to see that you appreciated our central location and enjoyed your stay in Cairns.

Hotel is in a really good location for the shops and the esplanade, all of which is witching walking distance. Also close to the casino, pubs and clubs...the little that cairns has. Rooms are decent size for everything you need and higher floors have a stunning view. The restaurant down stairs a Brazilian styles barbecue...would of loved to to try...

Located in the heart of downtown Cairns and very close to the marina, you cannot beat the location. The hotel doesn’t have much character and seems to cater to large tour groups, but it is clean, comfortable and some rooms have great views of the ocean and mountains. The parking and WiFi is free. There is a coin laundry on...

I stayed at the Pacific Hotel in Cairns twice in 2 years. The service is always great, the staff are friendly and the hotel is clean. I love the views of Cairns city, too. It's also very short walking distance into town from the hotel. Overall I enjoyed my stay. I would definitely go back there again.

I can find nothing negative to say about this hotel, good location, friendly and helpful staff and an excellent buffet breakfast with something for everyone's taste. Our room were clean and bright and our room had a lovely ocean view. We were treated to hundreds of Rainbow Lorikeets settling in to roost for the night in the palm trees in...

Large airy room on 10th floor with balcony view along esplanade, comfortable bed, quiet, efficient housekeeping kept place really clean, friendly reception staff, convenient for Cairns restaurants and pier (dive and sightseeing boats) only a 5 minute walk, reliable wi-fi.

Efficient and friendly reception. Nice sized room overlooking Pacific Ocean. Very small beds and not a lot of drawer space or cupboards. Air conditioning ok. Very useful laundry facilities. At breakfast some of the hot dishes were only lukewarm. Dinner was a let down. The food was good but the service was atrociously slow, although the staff were always cheerful....

Hi BryanMaldon, Thank you for your review after your recent stay at the Pacific Hotel Cairns.

We were glad that we chose Pacific Hotel for its location: short walks to marina, bus stops and night live (though also conveniently far enough, avoiding noise pollution). Great views from our corner balcony room (premium price); but you can't take down the Hilton Hotel in the way! Of all the hotels we stayed during our holiday, this had the...

Hi Mrulster, Thank you for taking the time to provide a review after your recent stay.

Start to finish, this hotel ticked all our boxes. Clean, comfortable, central, hot shower, safe in room, free wifi and laundry facilities . Staff excellent, friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend. We had a view (balcony) over the road and the casino but did not experience excessive noise.
