22019688 Couples - 08/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Harbour light is great for its location so you can’t go passed that . We have stayed the last 4 years there but it’s starting to look on the old side as the carpet looks dirty , the lounge had a stain on it so for the money they ask per night it’s time to upgrade especially with the new hotels opening up that are 5 star and well priced . It was always cleaned so can’t fault that .

Dear 22019688, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at Cairns Harbour Lights. I am sorry that you felt that your room was a bit tired, thank you for letting me know as I will definitely address this with the team. I very much hope we can welcome you again in the future. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager

2 of my sons ,1 daughter inlaw and 2 grandsons flew to Cairns for a surprise for my other daughter inlaw who lives with my son in Cairns. Harbor Lights put us all in rooms on same floor and next to each other. The staff were very accommodating and lovely. We only stayed 2 nights which was not long enough. This was my second stay there and hopefully not my last. The family are already talking about doing it again. We stayed in 3 rooms in total.1 room was a 2 bedroom apartment. It was spacious and perfect, clean and comfortable.

It was a great stay. We had a locals deal & received a bottle of wine & cheese platter complimentary but unfortunately the cheese platter was moldy and we had to throw it away Maybe that should be checked. But otherwise the room was beautiful.

A great stay - staff very helpful with our Board meeting needs

Nadia L. Business - 02/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed for business and initially thought we'd be able to have our Board meeting in one of our rooms. However they did not have the large dining table that I've had in the past, so we needed to move the meeting to downstairs. Staff were incredibly helpful in organising this and setting it up with very little notice.

Cas41-41 Couples - 01/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

My husband and I stayed at the hotel while celebrating our Wedding anniversary. We were very well looked after. Our apartment was on the 11th floor with views along the inlet. While we were actually in the apartment we could see many things happening on the water. Always something going on. We were welcomed with a card and a bottle of wine as well as a fruit basket acknowledging our anniversary. All staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. Our first trip to Cairns and it certainly won’t be our last. We would definitely stay at Harbour Lights again.

Dear Cas41-41, Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us at Cairns Harbour Lights. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. A very big congratulations from myself and the team on your wedding anniversary. I very much hope we have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager

Margaret Couples - 27/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location and the hotel was fresh and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Greg helped with booking trips and advice on what to do in the area. We loved the personal touch. We booked through Luxury Escapes and were very pleased with the price and inclusions we received with our deal. I would definitely stay/recommend this hotel to anyone.

There was noc chair or lounge in the bedroom at all. Very disappointing

Barry H. Couples - 26/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

I would be reluctant to stay again given a very plain room with no comforts other than a bed

Polite and friendly assistance offered at check-in then made the stay enjoyable.

Kirsty Business - 25/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Comfy bed, good pillows and aircon. Disappointing that the door to bathroom was broken, along with shower door. This was fixed the day that I reported the issue. The toilet leaked at times and this was not fixed.

No problems here

Exactly the short break we were looking for. Everything in the apartment worked correctly. The room was very clean and the bed most comfortable.

Great accommodation within walking distance of everything.

Lauz Business - 21/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

I love the design with the slits near the elevator letting airflow in. The room was large and spacious. Bed was reasonably comfortable and loved that plenty of pillows were provided. Mini bar prices were expensive and disappointing that coffee pods weren’t free. On the second night my air conditioning unit stopped working and the temperature was increasing instead of decreasing. When I reported it to reception, the initial woman that served me didn’t seem to understand me very well. The senior woman came up to my room and attempted to see what was going on. She was very thorough and moved me to another room when she couldn’t fix the cooling. Excellent service and was so lovely to talk to. The cleaner that saw me in the lobby at 4:30am came over to check I was ok and didn’t need help calling a taxi.
