Hotel's Favorite
What a terrific find the Novotel was. We’ve just returned from 9 nights and we didn’t want to leave. The deluxe room was clean and comfortable. Beds very comfortable. House keeping did a wonderful job cleaning the room daily, they were spotless. Delicious menu, and affordable. We ate at the resort 6 nights out of the 9. The big brekky was delicious and the perfect size. Coffee good too! Try the housemade granola too - divine! The pool is kid friendly and great for us adults too. Sand entry for the little ones, catering for everyone. Swim up bar, cocktails, skewers fresh from the bbq at the pool bar from 5pm..... I could go on! SPECIAL MENTION goes to Deb in the kids room, what a woman! She does a wonderful job daily running the kids activity program. The kids adore her, and she adores the kids. What an asset to your hotel. Thankyou for running a holiday program for the children, our kids loved it. We’ll definitely be back soon, our number one choice in Cairns now. Location is A+ The only advice I could give would be a few more pool lounges for peak times and a second table tennis table. You guys rock!

Lissb2380, Wow what an amazing review, thank you for choosing Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort for your family holiday. Our Deluxe rooms are the room type to book for that new room feel and great you found the bed comfortable. Fantastic your kids enjoyed the Kids activities, this was the first time we tried a full program for the School Holidays. I think Deb enjoyed it as much as all the kids, we are lucky to have her undertaking this for us. We also learnt from the December School holidays that our guests were looking for more options at dinner so we tried the skewers, they were popular, my favorite was the satay Chicken skewers. Appreciate your review, will pass onto our team to ensure we keep up the high level of service and look forward to welcoming you back again. Regards, Scott Grant General Manager

Go anywhere else. While the room itself was fine, the hallway smelled like damp pee. Now for the restaurant. Oh boy. The first night, a meal was forgotten, the next morning, we never got our coffees. The next night, one of our meals was incorrect. The food we did receive, was average at best. Don't bother trying to order at the bar, or if you do, be prepared to wait 20 minutes for your drink. And lastly, upon checkout, they tried to bill us for the room, that we had pre paid for. If you do stay here, skip the restaurant and go across the road to Roo Bar for a cheap feed, or around the corner to Dundee's for something more fancy.

We have stayed here several times over the last twenty years and this hotel still maintains a friendly warm and relaxed environment with clean and functional rooms with excellent fittings. From checking in , every aspect was fine, except for the torrential rain, but we can’t blame the hotel for that. If I were to make any criticism, and this applies across the Accor group hotels we stayed in in Cairns, it would be the A la carte breakfast replacing the buffet breakfast due to Covid. Most hotels in NSW have recommenced buffet dining with strict rules on sanitising. The one choice meal, and beverage seems more based on cost saving rather than due to Covid. If I chose bacon and eggs, I couldn’t obtain extra toast to have jam on, without having to pay extra. This wouldn’t be the case with a buffet. An additional coffee, also extra payment. Seems very penny pinching. Otherwise the hotel is great. We will be back.

Mark, Thank you for your repeat business and appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel. We have had our fair share of rain in the past few weeks however looks amazing at the moment. For the foreseeable future we will be doing al a carte / cafe style breakfast. We have ensured to remove all advertising about the buffet, will look to have updated with cafe style menu. Appreciate your comments around the coffee and juice options, we are reviewing our offerings. It is great to hear you will be back and look forward to seeing you again at Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort. Regards, Scott Grant General Manager

I stayed here as the Novotel Cairns Oasis resort offers discounted rooms in the current "Emergency Services Accommodation Special" through Accor Hotels. It was so great to see such an amazing resort offering discounts to us nurses and it was a very pleasant stay. The pool was amazing. Bed was super comfy. Reception staff were lovely. The only thing I would have to say is that because I was a female traveling solo I felt a little bit unsafe staying on ground floor in the room furthest away on the floor near the fence that goes to an area that wasn't part of the Novotel resort area.
