There is actually more than one Pullman hotel in Cairns. We chose the Pullman Cairns International hotel after walking around in Cairns and realising that we must stay here, if it is the last thing that we do. The grand entrance and lobby of the establishment reeled us in.
The hostess at the front desk was so friendly. She also gave us a fantastic deal. Although we were aware that there was another Pullman just across the road, this was the one for us. After a mildly awkward conversation with our existing hotel, we moved into this gem the very next day.
The hotel is located right in Cairns CBD. We were a short but enjoyable walk to the wharf, where we were able to go on our snorkelling tour. We were also close to the main shopping strip and its diverse and delicious food. I cannot think of a better location.
The moment we moved in, it was time to make use of the pool deck. We knew that there was only one thing missing in our lives at that point: cheese and beer. We were given the most delicious cheese and beer that we'd had in a long time, following which we relaxed in the warm spa.

The breakfast buffet was generous and varied. Each day, there was something new to try. The virgin mary drink was probably the best vegetable concoction that I had ever had in my life and we just couldn't get enough of it.

Our room was comfortable. It had some nice storage for our belongings. The bed and pillows allowed us to sleep comfortably. Our balcony gave us beautiful views over the harbour and the Cairns CBD.
Our experience at the Pullman was exemplary and I cannot wait to go back.
