Great views, not so great bed

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

O4860EAkatied Business - 15/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

It's a nice property with many restaurants close by however not one at the facility which would have been good. This was my fist stay as a gold member but no welcome amenities and still wondering what they are

Room was tiny

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Business - 11/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I have previously stayed in an apartment which was spacious and enjoyable after working all day, unfortunately this time I was allocated a very small hotel room and my colleague got an apartment. The hotel room was very small, not worth the room rate compared to other hotels in Cairns I’ve stayed at for work. I needed to work in the evenings and the desk was tiny, no option but to lay the bed to work as no room for a couch to sit on. The shower and bathroom was also small and not spacious enough to be comfortable.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Cairns Harbour Lights. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. I am so sorry that you were disappointed with the size of your room, our studio rooms are quite small, and more suited for quick night away. Your last stay as you mentioned was in one of our one bedroom apartments which are quite a bit larger and allow more room to conduct business. I will make a note on your profile that you prefer this room type. At Accor, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager T. +6… M. +61 4 03… E. h8…

I could not fault anything.

Staff really helpful and friendly

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Business - 11/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I have stayed over the last few years, and the staff seemed especially helpful and friendly on this trip. There was some confusion around my bookings as I moved rooms twice and left for a quick Groote Eylandt trip for 2 days. My personal charges were sent to the MJDF instead of carried over to my next booking as I had discussed, which was not ideal.

Dear Valued Guest, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Cairns Harbour Lights. I am so sorry for the mistake made with your billing. Please accept my sincere apology. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and I very much hope we can welcome you again in the future. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager T. +6… M. +61 4 03… E. h8…

Anne Business - 09/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I'm not sure if there is an opportunity later in this survey so I'll add this comment here: the only suggestion for improvement is that of provisioning for breakfast would be a positive change eg cereal and long-life milk (150 ml, not the tiny tablespoon containers currently provided). There was no hotel breakfast room service option, and the two recommended restaurants also didn't have a breakfast service. A small change but it would have tipped my scoring to a 10 experience. Thanks.

Dear Anne Thank you for your review, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. I am actually in the process of looking at some breakfast options for the rooms. We would love to proved this service. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Odette Laska General Manager T. +6… M. +61 4 03… E. h8…

Nice convenient apartment

Pretty good- nice apartment in a convenient location. Only problem was it smelt a bit damp - maybe the carpet got wet or the air filter in the aircon needs to be changed?

Awesome room, amenities and staff

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Stephanie Business - 05/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I choose Harbour Lights consistently now after staying in many other Cairns hotels. The apartments are spacious and well equipped with lovely views and the location is fantastic with Dundees below and the marina on the doorstep. All of that said the best part of Harbour Lights is the staff, it feels like coming home each time I visit, the staff particularly the assistant manager are super friendly and helpful, nothing is ever too much trouble. when there are maintenance issues they are quickly taken care of.

Dear Stephanie, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Cairns Harbour Lights. I am so pleased you enjoy your stays with us and thank you for choosing to stay with us when you visit Cairns.

Great location

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Tay Solo - 31/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The location and staff were amazing! He room was beyond what I expected. The only problem was the TV signal for the Nine network wasn't working. So all channels starting with 8* wouldn't work. Besides that, I will not hesitate to stay here again.

Well positioned.
