What a special night we had at the Cairns Sheridan. Booked a special dinner to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We were treated like royalty by Jen and Hayden. What fantastic service we received and the dinner what excellent. Thanks also to the chef who certainly knows how to cook a good steak. Can not speak highly enough of this restaurant and hotel. Strongly recommend you try them. You won't be disappointed.

Great value for money in a good location. It was nice to be close to the CBD without actually being in the CBD. The breakfast was very good. The staff were always very helpful and friendly. The only slight negative and the reason I couldn't give it 5 was that the hotel felt a little tired overall. It could maybe do with a lick of paint, new carpet, new linen etc. Other than that I would stay here again.

This establishment is more than suitable at a reasonable price for short or medium term stays. Downsides: As other reviews mentioned, the decor is quite outdated, and specifically in the bathroom we have so far found that the shower heads are much too low to accommodate taller people (we are 5"7 & 6ft) and are unmoveable. The pool is in need of a good clean considering it is under palm tree so tree litter has fallen in. The breakfast included option at this time is a small variety of food given on a plate not in buffet style due to covid restrictions, this is fine. We ordered the full breakfast which came with what seemed like steamed bacon and eggs, toast, baked beans, tomato and sausages. If we had not paid for the breakfast included option this would be $25 which I find to be excessive for what it is, as we found it relatively mediocre. The air con vent in our room also drips internally which is quite irritating. Upsides: Comfy bed, standard room but spacious, spacious bathroom despite its flaws, the lady working night time check in was lovely and helpful, there is a big wall full of flyers for attractions in the area. Covid restrictions are considered and they do well to keep guests safe. I wouldn't recommend you stay here if you want a luxurious stay, but it is good enough for a budget option.

The lady on reception was very helpful with food suggestions as we arrived at 8.30pm after our flight. Our room was great, had a deep bath, comfortable bed and crisp sheets. In the morning when the lady on reception heard we were walking to pick up our hire car, she organised the van to drop us and our luggage off. We were very pleased with this hotel.

Thank yo for your kind review. We are usually happy to take guests to collect their hire vehicles in our courtesy bus. Most of the car hire and campervan rental offices are quite close to the hotel with easy access. I hope you enjoyed your trip around Queensland.

We booked online and had no great expectations based on the price however we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived just after 8 o’clock in the evening and the check-in staff advised us that the restaurant would be open for another 15 minutes to give us an opportunity to grab a bite to eat. The food in Palms restaurant was magnificent and the service was friendly and not overbearing. It’s a pleasant surprise when the staff wait until you’ve had a chance to actually taste your food before asking if everything is okay 😀I can highly recommend the salt and pepper calamari. The price also included a full breakfast which was more than adequate for our needs.They also make a very good coffee. The room was clean and tidy with good towels and sheets and more than comfortable with all the usual facilities you expect The hotel is obviously a little bit older but seems to be very well cared for and all the staff that we encountered were very friendly and appeared to enjoy their jobs. I would definitely return to stay here based on our experience and suggest that if you’re looking for a budget priced hotel with customer service and facilities that exceeds the price you paid then this is a great option
