          The exotic and unique environment

        • Single
          3.8

          The reception staff are blunt and rude. Bar/restaurant staff are in experienced. I was allocated a dirty room and had to go back to reception to receive a new one. Fridge didn't work. Bathroom filled with mold and not cleaned very well from previous guest. In considerate guests were noisy from the bar's outdoor seating. Most other clients seem to be all workers/contractors and not holiday makers. Extremely rough people made for uncomfortable stay as I didn't feel like going in the pool with a crowd watching from the bar where happy hour was on!

        • Group of friends

          I like the most perfect thing is silence ..I enjoyed my trip and had a wonderful rest at rainbow in ..awesome motel as well as cheaper..

        • Couple
          5.4

          A bit far from the city centre, but if you want a cheap deal for a decent hotel: you can chose this without hesitation.

        • Couple
          6.2

          Good price for a fair stay. Budget location, very clean.

          Breakfast is only served until 8.30am. Showing at 9am, we couldn't get even a coffee...

        • Couple
          6.6

          Value for money. We had a room with a nice view on the swimming pool, but not every room has such a great location.

        • Single
          5.4

          It was available at very short notice for a good rate. Reception staff were friendly.

          It was a bit of a walk to the city centre. Would have liked more security: a more sturdy front door, a window that could be locked (broken latch) and less direct street access. Room keyring piece of plastic would not fit into slot next to front door, so could not use the main light in the room.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Friendly and helpful staff, who let us use the restaurant kitchen freezer to store some frozen fish that we had with us.

          Nothing in partticular, though there was one bit of a yelling match upstairs, but this didn't really worry us much!

        • Single
          10.0

          I have stayed there many times and it fit swith every thing I do price good rooms location ect

          I liked it all that the reason I stay there

        • Couple
          2.4

          It was dirty, I had lots of cockroach in my room, the hotel is used by prostitutes and Junkies. You could smell the pott on all floors. I'm wondering that Booked.net has such a bad hotel in his galery. And The Australian Friends told as that Rainbow Inn has a bad repute.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          We first stayed at the Rainbow inn in January 1993 so we wanted to stay there again just to see how much it had changed! The rooms were cleaner and not needing repairs, it was less noisy. The pool was wonderful and the meal we had in the restaurant was delicious.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Room had a nice pool outlook....nice soft towels & bed was firm and comfy

          Broken tiles in bathroom ... Shwr curtain flooded flood.. No lock on sliding door Drunken couple fighting in middle of the first night...

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The same answer as to the above questions. Location, clenliness,food,cost,staff. I will reccomend you to all my friends.

        • Older travelers
          8.0

          Meals and restaurant staff (Doreen) was very helpful and professional.

          Our sliding door to the outside garden area wouldn't lock there was only a chain and a piece of wood to ensure no one could get in from outside.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The environment and rooms at Rainbow Inn especially non-smoking rooms are very clean suits my preference. Has always preferred to stay at the Rainbow Inn because of its location and costs wise affortable to people like me. There is also flexibility with understanding on check out time to suit flight schedules.

          Rainbow Inn has always been my preferred hotel in Cairns.
