Cairns Harbour Lights Hotel
4 out of 5

Very friendly front desk staff. We paid for a one bedroom city view apartment. Walk out the door of the hotel right onto the waterfront, very close to where the tour boats leave from. 5 minute walk to the town. Great restaurants within walking distance. Definately recommend this particular apartment style hotel.

Reasons for our rating were: We were not aware before we arrived that there was a charge of $10 for parking. The "Bar Fridge" which we consider unsuitable for a self contained unit was full of drinks for purchase leaving us little room to store food. The bathroom was very small and the living area very large for a two person unit.

We didn't realise how close it was to the Marina- it's just there! Which was perfect as we were booking a lot of boat tours for snorkelling etc. The kitchen really helped us out w the eating out budget, as eating out in cairns is quite costly. A quick trip to Woolies which was about a 10min walk and we were stocked up for brekky, snacks and dinners for our 4 night stay. Dundee's, a restaurant just underneath offers a $15.50 lunch menu which was very yum, and you can charge it to you room- my other half ordered a half-rack of ribs for $15.50 not only was it a bargain but very yum! We are def going back!! :D

Room was spotless but have absolutely no idea what was going on with the tiny television up on the wall. Perfect for business trips.

Wonderful location, but really really, small televisions high up on the wall. A larger TV would make all the difference.

Had a wonderful night. Exception service from Amber and Terence (Reception) at Harbour Lights. Late checkout was nice for a change. Fully recommended. Plan to go back.

Excellent stay for price paid. Was given free upgrade from studio to villa. As locals, will definately suggest friends and family check this place first.

4 of us shared a 2 bedroom apartment. Location fantastic on waterfront. Large room with kitchenette would suit a longer stay. Restuarants just out front to suit various tastes. Close to cruise boats to Barrier reef. Enjoyed the room and hotel, Definately would stay again, value for money.

TI was only disappointed with the limited spaces for car parking and lack thereof and the fact I was charged for the car space considering I was a paying guest

We stayed one night prior to going further north. The location was excellant for our purposes and the nearby restaurants well worth a visit. Staff were courteous and helpful. We would stay here again if we return to Cairns.
