This hotel is directly opposite a playground on the beach front. You can't however swim at the beach. It is a 10 minute pleasant walk to the main shops and restaurants. The hotel is rather dated and in need of a facelift but it is clean and for the location and price,it is a great hotel.

We are a family of 4 and stayed 3 nights. Studio room is just good enough. But due to unavailability, we stay in a ocean view suite at the last night with a double bed and a soft bed. The soft bed is not comfortable. You feel the wire when laying on it. Overall very clean, comfortable, modern. 15 minutes...

Just 3 nights here during our stopover in Cairns for visiting Kuranda and Green Island. Staff very professional & helpful. Rooms' quality satisfactory: perfectly clean, a lot of comfort, spacious & bright, with a very nice & open view over the Esplanade. The breakfast is sufficiently rich & varying. The promenade is at hand. The price is not so high...

The hotels had a great view to the water. The room was also very nice. It is clean and very modern. The breakfast was fine but could be better, as it should be continental but was only American breakfast.

Clean. Balcony has nice view. There are actually 2 balconies. Appreciate little amenities such as hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Nice to have a little kitchen nook. The front desk staff were extremely friendly!!!

We stayed for 3 nights in a studio room. The room was clean and very large, easily fitting in a double and 2 single beds with loads of extra space. Lovely balcony with a great view. Room and bathroom looked newly renovated, the rest of the hotel needs a bit of an external reno but we did enjoy the pool....

My friends and I enjoyed our stay in suit room Cairns Plaza Hotel. Nice location, it's right next to the ocean and kids park. Room is clean and comfortable. Staff are so friendly. The only shortage is weak wifi signal.

The owners and workers were very accommodating , and friendly, the place was clean and nice for the pricing. My only complaint would be from the cafe side , the food was not on par, it was greasy and everything tasted of the same cheap oil, and there wasn't much choices we were offered either. I would definitely stay there...
