I've stayed at the Cairns Sheridan several times now. I always find it friendly and accomodating. The staff know me now, because I come so often, and I like to use their conference room. I only discovered there was a Gym there, as I was leaving, so next time I will use it. Great place.

Spent 2 nights in this hotel the room was clean and tidy plenty of space air-conditioning was good and the view was OK. Staff were quite helpful on arrival. Pool was full of leaves and looked dirty so didn't enter in ! And it was a 12dollar ride into the centre of town and the same to return depending on...

Thank for your review and your very positive comments about our rooms and staff. As far as the pool is concerned, it is raked of leaves daily and fully tested, cleaned and balanced weekly. Our pool area is surrounded by palms, flowers, shrubs and bushes. I see it as a tropical garden pool. To have this beautiful garden pool highlights...

We selected this hotel because we planned two tours. It worked out great for that. The room was quite comfortable. Good size with a balcony. They have a launderette which was a bonus. We didn't find any restaurants within walking distance outside of the one at the hotel. The internet service was a challenge.

Thank you for your review. Besides our restaurant, which is obviously the best, there is a restaurant next door to us and a Thai restaurant 100mts up Sheridan St. Indian two block down Sheridan st and heaps of take-away cafes, including Red Rooster, Subway, Pizza, Burgers and Kebabs, all around us. I am sure our staff could point you in...

Arrived at hotel, checked in, got key, got out of lift on 5th floor then bang, this odd smell. Get rid of it. The King Executive Room: nice, 4 star quality so happy. Bathroom descent but shower in bath is a pet hate. The vent was leaking but not that bad to warrant a room change. Wifi was good but...

Most of our guests are very happy with 900Mb per session and if it is used we give them another one and another one. It is very hard to use 900Mb unless you want to download movies. Whilst most hotels offer free WiFi, not many have unlimited because in Australia the hotel is responsible for what is downloaded, not the...

A reasonable location, less than 10 mins from Esplanade, this hotel is reasonable in all areas. Rooms are ok, nothing special but average. A reasonable size, well decked out. Service was ok and breakfast again ok. Outside are quite nice.

Thank you for your review. Sometimes average is ok, especially when you are getting exceptional value for money. I have recently paid double our rate in other hotels and found the experience to be far less than average. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Free WiFi is continuous WiFi for your entire stay. It is only limited to 900MB to prevent downloading movies (usually illegally). This amount of WiFi should be easily sufficient to last several days of internet, emails and general social media. You never have to pay for it when you have free WiFi....

Cant be happier with the hotel. Excellent customer service, attention to detail (Customer Service). Staff members Leanne and Sarah were great. Will definitely visit again. Staff helped with attractions booking and took care of me.

Hotel was clean and staff friendly but the location is inconvenient and there is no free wi-fi, not even in the lobby which is so odd because there is free wi-fi in downtown Cairns for everyone! Why this hotel wouldn't have wi-fi baffled me!?

Thank you so much for your kind comments about our friendly staff and clean hotel. It confuses me a bit to think a hotel doesn't have WiFi as of course we do have WiFi.
