          Location

          I was very unsatisfied with your hotel and do not plan to stay at an other of your locations. The hotel was very outdated and the staff was extremely rude.

          not good special offer for honeymoon travel

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Great location, good breakfast, spacious and modern fooms.

          Unless you like helicopters, the nearbye heliport can be perceived as too noisy, espcialy when enjoying the afternoon sun on the balkony.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The position of this hotel right on the marina is spectular, while also being close to the city. Rooms are very modern and comfortable on the Horizon level where we stayed.

          We arrived at 6.45pm expecting to be able to enjoy canapés and a drink as it is part of the Horizon club booking only to find it shuts at 7pm!l

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          I liked the location . It is close to the marina and shopping arcades .

          I am actually a member of the Golden Circle and I have stay in many Shangri-La Hotels through out the world . But the Cairns hotel was not of the same standard as the others . I was disappointed at this hotel and room layouts . It did not give one a cozy feeling . There are plenty of rooms for improvement .

        • Group of friends

          it locates beside the harbort, excellent view!!

        • Couple
          7.0

          I liked the price and the fact that wireless internet was included.

          The hotel furniture/fittings are a bit dated so it needs a bit of a renovation

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          It is in a top location for Cairns. It is no where near the standard you expect from a Shangri La Hotel.

        • Single
          5.8

          Staff at the front office extremely helpfull and friendly. The staff at breakfast however give you a bad start of the day. Not friendly, not fast, uninterested, no ATD whatsoever. I would not like to be part of that team! Not Shangri La worthy@ all!!!

          Bad experience at the breakfast. Staff not up to Shangri La standards at all! The hotel is nothing compared to a Shangri La eg. Hong Kong! Absolutely NOT. Nor in building and infrastructure (gym eg.) - certainly NOT Nor in staff appearance or breakfast quality! And this for 22 dollars! Do NOT have breakfast - much better and cheaper places outside!

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The noise from the Pier bar directly below the room. The reception desk is too small, with too few staff - guests having to queue too long.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Location great, rooms large.

          King room, does not necessarily means that it will contain a king sized bed.

        • Single
          9.2

          Very nice hotel. Got in late and left early but they had staff helping me the whole way. I would definitely stay there again.

        • Single
          10.0

          The Best place i've stayed in Cairns. I travel every 3 months to Cairns and now i have found the only hotel to stay in.
