The Abbott Hotel was perfect and we wish we could have stayed longer! The people working there are very friendly and helpful which made the stay memorable! We needed help storing luggage and they went out of their way to make it easy for us. The location was in walking distance to the Esplanade and Pier, so very convenient.

Rooms were very clean, quiet and comfortable with lift access to the higher floors. Breakfast at a nearby cafe was discounted when shown your roomkey. Shuttle service... More

I found this hotel after a ton of research, as Cairns isn't a city with a lot of the big name-hotel chains. It's a backpacker town. Overall I would give the hotel a 7 out of 10. Pro's: *Very centrally located, you are in the heart of the city, mins away from the dock where a lot of tours depart... More

We stayed here one night after a long overseas flight. The reception went smoothly and there was an elevator up to the room (unlike many other places in Australia we have noticed since). The room was clean and quiet. No view, just of another building next door. The hotel has amazing history as it is a very old hotel that... More

This was a lovely hotel, very comfortable, clean and spacious room. High standard decor and fittings in the bathroom. Only stayed 1 night but would definitely be my choice again. Close to shops and the Marina for charters to the reef.

The perfect location for tourists. In the middle of town, close proximity to restaurants and the waterfront. Its a small hotel with great staff. Cecile was an exceptional ambassador for the hotel and the town. Guided us to the best attractions. The other gentlemen, remiss in not remembering his name, was also great. Rooms are clean and spacious. The lobby... More
