    requested high floor but got 2nd floor. Had lots of lugguage but was not given a room by the lift. Given the furtherest room from the lifts. Not very good at all!!!!

  • Single

    The Hotel is in a very nice area direct at the Harbor. The rooms are clean and nice furnitures. The Stuff was friendly and helpful.

    The rooms could be a little bit refresh (painting).

    Location, location, location. Top location

    Poorly designed. Waiting for the lift on our floor was like standing in a wind tunnel. Bathroom/shower poorly layed out We had a mini fridge, mini dishwasher, mini oven and a full size washing machine and dryer? Is washing that important? Central void of building is a waste of space, has no appeal. What were they thinking? To answer the below question - for location yes, anything else, no

    The Hotels location to everything and rooms were great, quiet and comfortable

    Every time you had a shower you end up with water all over the bathroom floor. Require better seals or doors on the showers

    Laundry facilities, excellent location, close to the best restaurnats in Cairns, decent view, comfortable, spacious rooms, good sized balcony, pool & gym!

    They don't service your room everyday but they do send someone into your room without notifying you to check your bar fridge everyday. At the end of our stay the guy at reception spoke to us as if they had discovered our "secret"....yes, we had 2 drinks from the bar - you want us to do that don't you???? Very odd! Also when they service your room they don't vaccum the floor, but aside from that everything else was great!

  • Older travelers

    Great location - close to restaurants, nice walks to Harbour & Esplanade, walking distance to shopping.

    Pool area was nice but a heated spa would have been good when we were there in June as it was too cold to get in. Also it was very windy every time you stepped out of the door & headed to the lift.

    Location. The bed. The shower. I was allowed to stay an extra hour after check out for no charge.

    Fridge expensive.

    I arrived at Hotel at 630am. But hotel staff prepared the room for us without an extra money. The room is clean and large, in addition the view from the room is really great. The location is also perfect to access the station and the boat to green island.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The closeness to the wharf and restaurants, these are some of the best places we have eaten at in a long time, the staff were wonderful . The location of the motel was within easy walking distance to major shopping centres and the staff at harbour lights went out of their way to help with even the smallest problems. When in Cairns next we will be booking at Harbour Lights.

  • Group of friends

    unhelpful staff, no house keeping service (special rate- cleaning not included and not stated in the booking. $30 extra for room house keeping) bed linen not clean, swimming pool very small, gym limited equipment, restaurants are very expensive,

  • Couple
    10.0

    Hotel was excellent, right next door to the Reef Terminal for all the Great Barrier Reef tours, also just a short walk from the Esplanade with many bars and restaurants. Room was very modern and included a kitchen, living room (open plan), bedroom and bathroom. We also made great use of the washing machine to wash all our clothes.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Great central location, spacious appartment & balcony, very well equiped. Airconditioning working well with minor noise, compfy big beds as promised.

    Was not aware , that my package contained only a 3 days cleaning and not every day. Despite reception wad very helpful and got clean towels on demand.
