Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Indri a very pleasant stay
My husband and I arrived early morning in Cairns and the reception checked us in immediately with a smile. Our room was spacious with balcony facing the ocean and the bed was really comfortable. All staffs we met were very friendly and helpful, specially the nice lady that helped us arrange a trip to the reefs on the best day with perfect weather for diving. The breakfast was really good and we got a discounted rate. Hotel location is near the lagoon and a short walk to several good restaurants. Overall it was a very pleasant stay. I definitely will recommend this hotel and will stay here again for our next holiday in Cairns.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inthejungle Dirty Room!
We stay at the Holiday Inn almost every time we comes to Cairns. Because we catch the charter flight to Papua from there, we are in and out of Cairns frequently.
This time our stay was not good. The room itself (419) was just plain dirty. The carpet had two huge stains on it where someone had spilled something. (I took photos if you want to see them.) The sliding door had hand and forehead prints all over it. The headboards had grease marks from the last guest(s?) resting their heads against it. Ick! The maid never vacuumed the room during the 4 day stay. She had problems remembering to; replenish the towels, the glasses, the milk, empty the ashtray on the balcony. There were marks on the bathroom door from past guests. The whole atmosphere of the room was DIRTY. Leaving me to feel very uncomfortable.
I admit I didn't talk to the manager as my husband didn't want to, and the hotel seemed very full, so the chance of another room being available seemed slim. I basically was just very disappointed overall this time. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

We spent 6 nights at Holiday Inn Cairns after traveling around Australia. We liked the room which was well equipped and spacious. There was a good laundry to sort out washing, and lying by the pool was very relaxing. The staff were very helpful. We spent some time talking to the man who feeds the Baramundi. He was very interesting and enjoyed his job. W
Old definitely return for a short break.

Our family just loved our stay at Cairns Holiday Inn. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Very nice room with great view. Perfect location on the Esplanade, close to the playgrounds and coffee shops. Loved our breakfast and staff went beyond their duties and happy to talk and had in interesting knowledge of the Cairns area. The family loved the pool, gym and atrium area. Lots for children to do.

Perfect hotel if you're not looking for a fancy stay - comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and good location to the strip on the esplanade. Staff was super helpful in booking our tours in Cairns. Breakfast buffet was also a nice addition - has everything you need.
