This hotel is dated looking from the outside but our room was very large and clean.

A microwave would have been nice. 6th floor had lovely large balcony with great...

Too bad it was raining in Cairns due to the tail-end of Cyclone Debbie which brought torrential rain & wind to the area The hotel is near most backpacker-accommodations and...

One night in April when transiting from Port Douglas. Room was clean and well taken care of, with a mini-fridge, hot water heater, nice toiletries, and a large balcony with a view.

We had a great view of the water. The apartment size room was clean and had a full balcony that stretched from the living room to the bedroom. Hardwood floors. Clean. Short walk along harbor to town that had many restaurants, ice cream shops and stores.

Plaza's location is...

We stayed at this hotel based on reviews and were shocked with what we arrived to, the outside of the building needed a good clean and upgrade, the reception was not very helpful or friendly, our first room had a leak coming out of the roof in the bathroom, we were then moved to another room, the rooms are tidy...

Checking in was easy, the woman at the desk was very friendly and helpful, the price reflected the room and was well worth the value for money, pool was refreshing and close to the shops. Would recommend to families because its close to Muddy's Playground.

Good location across from Muddies Playground along the Esplanade with a short scenic walk to the city centre. Within walking distance to a car rental and free onsite parking. Clean and modern facilities.

The facility was extremely clean and the staff was excellent. The breakfast was good, the offerings were extensive. The facility location was next to the walkway around the beach. No beach access. Park across the street was available for kids and adults alike. Lots of grass for picnics.
