                It was in the city centre so very well located for eating and going out in the evening. The airport is not far away either from the city centre. I stayed in a budget room in the heritage part of it so I was able to experience the original character of the hotel.

                This is a colonial build hotel and it is run still the same. they need to move to the 21st century

                Hotel was in the centre of town, making it easy to get from A to B. Breakfast had plenty of choice, quite good.

                Pillows - only 3 for two people and in need of replacing. Only one glass in refrigerator, needed two (two people)

                Excellent location in the city centre near Esplanade, Lagoon, Ferry terminal

                some rooms (132 - 137) are noisy

                Location good and could be improved! However noise level atrocious as some of us attend conferences and have deadlines to meet. Staff feel they are on a working holiday and have no respect for others by drinking, smoking and chatting on the veranda into the early hours of the morning! Just get to sleep then the garbage and street sweeper wake you with a bang a few hours later! Consider double glaze windows and doors and alert the local council m p!!

              • Family with children
                8.8

                What I liked was that the hotel was central and in easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, mariner and logoon. Very important when the decision is made not to hire a car. All the tour groups including to the lush Daintree and Tablelands and the catamarans for the snorkelling on the fabulously coral rich reefs that are full of beautiful and breathtaking marine life are easily accessible from the Hide Hotel. Most pick ups for the tours occur at bus stop 4 opposite the Hide. Alternatively, it is a 5 minute walk to the mariner or fabulous free swimming at the made made lagoon next to the mariner provided by the council. Along the palm lined board walk adjacent to the mariner are a rich variety of restaurants that cover many types of culinary culture.The Hide Hotel is very good value for the price and location. It has its own swimming pool, and whilst in an unusual location, turned out to be quite private and most enjoyable for my daughter and myself. Despite very little use by others at the Hotel, the pool was kept very clean.Breakfast in a communal room was included in the price. Considering most people I know have cereal and toast and coffee or tea for breakfast, more than adequate. Beds were comfortable. I think families looking for value for money should give the Hide Hotel some well earned, due consideration.

                The only thing I would quibble about given the location and price but should be a given in such a tropical climate is better air conditioning units. The current air conditioning did the job for July, but I wonder how they would go in the hot humid summers in Cairns. This is something that should be given serious thought as it could turn some people off staying at the Hide in such environmental conditions. Comfort is a must when on holidays. I think families looking for value for money should give the Hide due consideration.

                Central location, continental breakfast on the verandah...

              • Single
                7.4

                The location is very good, close to everything. The breakfast was good.

                Room services should be improved. I requested for a 6 am wake up call but didn't get so, woke up at 7:30 and almost missed out on my flight back home.

              • Single
                7.4

                Central Location. Close to centre and also near railway station which was a requirement as I was catching a train out. Very clean and well presented. Slightly basic but was mid-price so that was expected. Room was larger than expected for the category, especially the ensuite bathroom which was of good size. The verandah was a pleasant setting for the breakfast. Reception were very helpful on check-in.

                The breakfast was rather basic- cereal, fruit juice, coffee/tea plus toast. However there are plenty of other choices nearby if more is required. Also remember the room price - can't expect too much to be thrown in with it.

                From the outside it is a very nice hotel in colonial style. Very good location in the city center. Staff is friendly. But, renovation is urgently needed!

                The room was very dark (door to the public veranda was covered with a sheet to avoid people having breakfast or smoking there to watch inside) and smelly. Ventilator was covered with thick black dust, so I rather didn't use it. Windows in the bathroom were fixed lamellas - always open, letting smoke from the veranda inside. Shower was either too hot or too cold. The last day, the room wasn't cleaned, bed was not made, no fresh towels.
