Cairns Hotels: 144 reviews and 198 photos
The Grand Hotel was built in 1926 and typical of the old pubs around Australia it has a wide veranda for the 'sleeping' guests to sit on,cool off or keep dry.All accomodation is 'backpacker'
style and costs $20 per person per night.
It is a clean pub and has recently been refurbished.
It has a dining room, undercover outdoor eating area,a great bar and outdoor drinking and smoking places.
They have live entertainment at night and can get a bit noisy.
The Cairns Railway Station used to be directly opposite and that was moved further away for the now Cairns Central shopping Centre --the station is on the other side of the centre and you can walk through the car park to access it.
It's a good old style pub to hang out for awhile and I have been told the rooms are clean.
Unique Qualities: I love how you can sit at one of the windows and people watch whilst enjoying a cold beer or a pub squash as a quench thirster.
The 'sleeping' guests can also people watch from the upstairs veranda.
It is well located and an easy flat walk and distance to all that Cairns has to offer.It is right across the road from Cairns Central Shopping Centre that has a food court and supermarkets for supplies and other shopping,a movie complex, the local bus stop and a walk through to Cairns Railway Station makes it a convenient location.
