Two visits of one night each spaced within a two week trip. Very convenient location near downtown. Very comfortable, clean facility. Room was more spacious than expected. Very quiet location which was appreciated. Staff was very helpful with early morning departures and arrivals.

Conveniently located and an easy walk down to the marina or into town, but the hotel itself isn't great. Breakfast in the attached chinese restaurant is not appetising, birds hopped in from outside and helped themselves to the uncovered buffet more than once. Bathroom was...More

This hotel is centrally located within walking distance to many attractions. The rooms are large and airy, with very comfortable, large beds. The air conditioning is perfectly placed, so that it cools without blowing directly onto you while you're sleeping. The staff are amazing and...More

About
Description
The Hotel Cairns, with its impeccably private and tropical ambience, is a 4 star resort hotel superbly positioned in the central business district of Cairns, one block from the famous Esplanade. Its architectural More profile and exterior facade is one of the most beautiful examples of Queenslander heritage style, and is a popular talking point among many of the hotel’s visitors and guests. The hotel has undergone a complete remodeling and refurbishment to emerge as the classic accommodation of choice in Tropical North Queensland. Privately owned and operated by an Australian family, the Bakers, The Hotel Cairns is popular with international and domestic visitors and locals from the Cairns hinterland who appreciate quality and attention to detail. Set back from the street and well shaded by tropical trees and plants, The Hotel Cairns features a tour booking desk, a sparkling blue outdoor pool and spa, a modern, state of the art cardio gymnasium, a choice of function rooms, an onsite car park and a welcoming indoor/outdoor restaurant, The Plantation Bar & Grill. The Hotel Cairns is conveniently located just 10 minutes drive from the Airport, and an easy 5 minutes walking distance to shops and eateries in Cairns’ CBD. Less

We travelled to Cairns by train from Brisbane. Depends on what you mean by 'late'. We saw reception staff available still available at about 10:00pm but I suggest your enquirer might be best to contact hotel to confirm.

They did for us when our flight was rescheduled due to a typhoon. I offered to pay, but they didn't seem to mind for a couple of pages. Waiting til its quiet at the front desk and there is a friendly face probably helps.
