Quick one night stay

The hotel was a solid choice for our one night stay. It's a little bit of a walk into the centre of Cairns, but nothing too drastic. The shower taps were stuffed though and there seemed to be little ventilation in the bathroom. But other than that the room was nice, and clean, and had been updated recently.

Excellent value, spacious & location perfect

Cairns Plaza Hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a studio room for eight nights in October 2014 for a family with two kids aged 10 & 6. We knew it wasn't five star and were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the room and pretty modern decor. We also got a bargain with this websites 20% off for mobile bookings. The sound proofing isn't perfect but I wasn't woken once by noise. We were on the 6th floor and were truly impressed with the excellent value of the Cairns Plaza. The location is fantastic, we could walk everywhere, the Esplanade is wonderful & you get a great snapshot of the multicultural Cairns community, both permanent & transient there. The kids lived Muddy's Playground across the road & we had many relaxed BBQ dinners there in the evenings. Thank you so much to the Crown Plaza staff for a great stay.

The bbq's across the road in the Esplanade are free to use, and if you buy a roll or alfoil, very easy to clean!

great location; new and clean rooms.

Outstanding cleaniness, spacious room for 4 in the family room. It was recently refurnished so amenities was new. Kitchen was complete with cutleries, microwave, plates, jug, mugs and facility to boil water. Rooms cleaned well everyday. Safe environment and far enough from the noise of the city but close enough to walk to amenities and jetty where reef tours set off from--abt 15mins walk.only one down side-- Felt the receptionist could have been more friendly and less curt though.

One night

We only stayed one night to attend a 60th Birthday at a Hotel nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful and suggested for an extra $20 we could upgrade to a recently refurbished room. Room was spacious and modern, bed comfortable. This is an older style hotel but great value for money with a cooked breakfast included in the price.

First trip to Cairns

This hotel was in a great location - walking distance to the main shopping and eating areas. The staff were the friendliest we have ever experienced and were very helpful. They also had a lot of local knowledge. The rooms (we stayed on two separate occassions) were clean and some had lovely sea views. I would recommend eating in the hotel restaurant as the meals were excellent and good value. Overall, it felt like a home away from home!
