I stayed at the Sheridan after a trip to FNQ. The staff were really friendly and helpful and I slept well on a huge and comfortable bed. The Sheridan must have about the best showers that I have experienced - I felt really refreshed after.

I had a late night stop over with an early start in cairns, great to see a friendly 24 hr check in as well as reliable cab pre-booking for an early morning departure. The rooms were very clean and tidy with modest furnishings. Probably one of the closest hotels to the airport, but still a reasonable distance to the strand...

I stayed at the Sheridan for 4 days while conducting a course. First I have to say the staff are wonderful. They're friendly, welcoming and always ready to assist in anyway they can. The hotel is clean and well presented and the rooms are spacious and housekeeping does a great job. The showers have great pressure which I love lol...

If you're looking for a place to crash in between flights this is perfect. It's clean, staff are friendly and efficient and it's under 10 min drive from the airport! I arrived early morning and had a late checkout allowing me to get a few hours sleep and a nice hot shower. I would definitely stay again in between flights!

The hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. This hotel is located close to the city, Botanic Gardens and the Esplanade. The restaurant was superb for dinner and breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet.

I booked two nights and paid with Credit card. However, for certain reasons I wanted to check out one day earlier and cancel the 2nd night. Refund was not possible which I found not helpful. The aircon was working not well and the lowest temperature on the thermostate is 20 Centigard. So the night was unpleasant. Cant recomment the place!

Wolfgang, don't book through an online travel agent if you want flexibility. Below is the direct response from our receptionist Sarah, to me. Please read. This infuriates me! Wolfgang’s Expedia paperwork had specific requests…. Quiet room, high floor with a view. When he arrived, he wasn’t happy about having to supply me his details “I filled this all out online,...

Have just had another great stay at this hotel, can't help but to keep plugging it. Again, a nice clean room, nice comfortable king bed, have the best sleep. And wifi for keeping in touch. Dined in the restaurant, with the smiling Mia taking good care of us. Another nice dinner, buffet breakfast in the morning with a good variety....

Thank you so much for your generous review. It seems people are very quick to criticize these days but slow to pass on positive feedback. We all appreciate getting this type of review as it gives us some hope in humanity and the will to keep going.

I have never slept so badly at a hotel before. I was woken up 5 times at night because of the wall noise that each neighbouring room makes when they use the shower or toilet. Its also in the middle of nowhere, so you need to taxi to get anywhere. TL:DR Stay in cairns city. I cancelled my second Night...

Didn't stay i the hotel, but attended a conference there. The conference room and amenities were of a good standard. The staff were excellent: friendly, responsive and kind. The hotel is a short drive to the airport and the city. Parking easy and undercover (great in the heat). Keep up the good work and your employees make the place shine.

Thank you for your review, it is not often we get comments about our conference facilities but it is great to get such good feed back. We have three conference rooms, all with catering, full beverage service and state of art audio visual equipment but it is always our staff who steal the show with their great service. Thanks again...
