The Pacific Hotel Cairns commands a downtown "dress circle" waterfront
location on the picturesque Cairns Esplanade. The Reef Fleet Terminal, a

precinct and close to the seaport, city shopping, parklands and the Reef

The Pacific Hotel Cairns is the ideal base for visitors who wish to explore
and enjoy the spectacular attractions of tropical Far North Queensland. All
176 rooms have private balconies with most having superb views overlooking
the harbour and parklands. The hotel has a tour desk in the lobby to assist
visitors in selecting the best activities to enjoy during their visit.

The hotel also boasts one of the finest restaurants in Cairns, the Bushfire
Flame Grill. Here guests enjoy a Brazilian-inspired, Australian-style
barbecue. Metre long skewers of succulent Australian beef, pork, lamb and
chicken are seasoned, marinated and gently roasted on the churrasco grill.
Waiters slice sizzling hot roasted meats from the skewers directly to your
plate. The restaurant also offers an a la carte menu. Bushfire opens for
dinner from 5.30pm until late. Breakfast is available daily from 6.30am
until 9.30am.

Other facilities include a swimming pool, the Sugar Cane Rhumbar for pre
dinner cocktails; tour desk, 24 hour reception, internet kiosk, vending
machine area and wifi in public areas and accommodation rooms.

entranceway and lobby giving the Pacific Hotel a fresh, modern style. All

Pacific Cairns
Lovely hotel, great location central to everything. Lagoon up and across the road, great idea, manmade beach with all amenities, top spot for free.... Port 5 min walk for reef visit. Restaurants and pubs on your doorstep, and night market is 5-10 mins walk. Hotel restaurant looks good and is popular but only got to try their coctails and beers, GREAT STUFF.
