              • Older travelers
                8.4

                We found this hotel quite comfortable and clean it was not too expensive. The staff were quite helpful.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                The room was large and modern with a good panoramic view of the harbor however, the bathroom was very small. The hotel represented value for money since it offered free parking facility while others charged a nominal fee for its parking per visit. Location of the hotel was excellent as it was within the walking distant to most of the venues. On Friday and Saturday nights the hotel provided a seafood buffet again this was value for money as the seafood was fresh and plentiful.

                The gymnasium as it was small and poorly ventilated.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Very convenient location and loved the option of firm or soft pillows on the beds. Room was well decorated and modern plus our twin room had a double bed for each person.

                Small bathroom and they didn't get our room service order right. Only one person on reception for checkout in the morning - hence a queue.

              • Single
                7.0

                The bed is comfortable

                The first receptionist is quite rude to me. Another thing is that they want $90 if you check in early in the morning.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                Location is good, others are normal

                Too small room.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Fantastic room with balcony on the top floor overlooking the bay. Staff very helpful and facilities excellent. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. There are plenty of restaurants within 200 yards for breakfast much cheaper than the hotel and the location is great being right on the seafront esplanade. Quite expensive eating out in Cairns, drinks especially.

                The bar closed very early which was a nuisance as we wanted a drink at about 11pm one night and they could only offer an order through room service.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                The comfort of our room! And the Location!!

                The staff where soooooooooo rude and unhelpful!

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                As usual The Holiday Inn lived up to its reputation, as you know what you are going to get when you book a room anywhere in the world. The location was great and we a room on the 7th floor with a terrific view. Sue on the tour desk was very helpful and efficient in booking us a snorkeling trip at very short notice.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. The staff was knowledgable and helpful.

                I didn't like the bathroom at all. The vanity was too small to hold toiletries. The shower was awkward to use and made a watery mess on the floor. The hotel, in general, seemed "tired" and in need of an overhaul.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Overall a very good stay. Staff very helpful. Tour desk also very good.

                Swimming pool area seemed a bit dated, pool not very big.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                All of the staff were very helpful especially the porters. The dinner to rooms was lovely and the rooms were clean. We did have trouble with the doors ie opening them but finally got the knack of them. Very good Motel. I also upgraded when I got to the motel because of the balcony.

              • Couple
                6.6

                A/C didn't work. That's bad especially the room didn't have ventilation. Thankfully we only stayed for one night.

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                I cannot advise others to stay at a hotel that overcharges for what it offers. It was once worth the price, but not now.

                Overpriced in every department for what it offers. It should be offering 3 star rating prices.

              • Single
                8.2

                The aspect, location and quality

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The set up is very convenient. The hotel being built in a circular shape, you can never be to far from anything the hotel has to offer. eg Pool, gym, restaurant, foyer etc. It is right in the heart of Cairns and a block away from the shops and restaurants. The beds were really comfortable and we had the choice of firm and soft pillows.
