    Very convenient location in the heart of Cairns

    The location was great and the rooms were spacious and clean. But - operating a hotel with no staff on site should be fully disclosed up front. Breakfast is advertised as going from 6:30 to 9:30, but by 8:00 any sign of breakfast (other than coffee) is gone. Response when staff was called (because they are not in the hotel) was that breakfast was delivered earlier. Please note that breakfast was a small assortment of pastries (witnessed it the next day at 6:45am). Again, the hotel is clean and comfortable but not having staff is questionable from service, security and safety views.

    Would stay again.

    The Abbott was a nice little place. It was very convenient to all the shops, night market, esplande. The complimentary pastries for breakfast was a nice addition. Our key didn’t work once, so someone from their sister hotel had to come over. There’s no one at the front desk, at least we never saw one while we were there, was never really a problem, they still came fairly quick with our key. The room was nice and clean, we had 2 queen beds, good space. Worth what we paid, we’d stay again.

    Review of the Abbott Hotel

    Good location. % minute walk to fleet terminal. One block from the esplanade. Room is clean and bed is comfy. There is no service to speak of as there is not even a front desk clerk there. They email me the door entry code to the hotel and told me my room key would be in an envelope on the front desk. I did not see on live staff during my three days of stay. On the other hand, one is not really necessary, but would be nice to have somebody there to answer question if necessary.

    Superficially good but scratch beneath the surface

    No window in room. No king size bed - just 2 cheap feeling singles pushed together. Cheaply kitted out & functional.

    Friendly and comfortable stay

    Extremely nice and helpful reception. Clean room. Beautiful hotel right near everything. If you have an early morning dive or just looking for a great place in a convenient location, this is it

    Thumbs up!

    Clean, neat, spacious and great location! Would have rated this place 10/10 if they have a microwave and a better TV. Regardless, definitely going back to stay with them again next time.
