I know, don't stay in Cairns, but....

Jump to last reply

We want to stay one night in Cairns before we fly out. DH wants to bird on the Esplanade and Centenary Lakes, so we would like to come down so he can bird the afternoon then morning before we go. We want to minimize drive time by staying in town.

I found one place, Whitfield House, which would be perfect (as I could walk over to the Botanic Gardens which is what interests me, and he could go to CL and down to the Esplanade easily). However, their online booking link is broken, and an email sent over the weekend has not yet been responded too. I had hoped once it was Monday there, they would respond.

The next closest place had horrible reviews, so then I moved to hotels on the Esplanade. Wow, what a mixed bag. Consistently, every place I looked at had a significant number of poor reviews. Some good, but mostly poor.

We want to be on the far end from town as that is where he wants to bird. The least objectionable one that I have found is the Mercure Harbourside.

All this to say, does anyone have any input? If I hear from Whitfield House and it isn't outrageously expensive for one night, I would take that. But otherwise, I am on the fence.
