l was displaced due to the airline not being able to land at the scheduled destination due to bad weather and arrived at another airport at 1215am along with 5 other planes and 880 passengers all looking for accommodation. l called the Pullman lnternational and discussed my plight with them on arrival to Cairns with the desk clerk and night manager. Even though there was a large conference on at the hotel they found a room for me. l am very grateful for their efforts and will continue my Accor ALL membership as l have over the past 26 years - it's the membership that keeps on giving. As l found out in the morning, approx 350 passengers spent the night at the airport sleeping on whatever they could find - membership certainly does have its benefits.

Dear David H., We very much appreciate your sentiments regarding your time with us and what sounded like a very challenging flight. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback, we have also received your direct email from our CEO, Sarah. We are all delighted and have shared your comments with and congratulated our night team for their amazing work. We wish you all the best on your onward travels. As always, thank you for your loyalty and thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Warm regards, Cathryn Martin. Guest Experience Manager.

I have and do stay at Pullman hotels across Australia with out an issue. I have stayed at the Cairns Pullman previously without an issue. This recent stay was far from a pleasant experience. Starting on checking in I requested an early cab to be booked. I was told this will be done (but not written down so I thought to check later). Then the room card would not activate the lift (not activated on checkin). After finally getting back to lobby I approached the receptionist on the issue. I was told I was not using the card correctly? I reiterated I was as been in the hotel before and the card reader stays red. I was finally given a new card - this time activated. On getting to the floor (14) the sign should relay what’s ahead. The premium sign was missing the premium lettering. The room is very dated and not as you would expect. To have a bath/shower with a high step up in/out is not ideal and not at other premium rooms in other hotels. On dropping something on the bathroom floor you can see the quality of the workmanship. With holes in the wall where the ants come from I gather - later on that. I then call reception to check the early cab booking - I rang for 45 min and constantly engaged. Thinking a bus group turned up I went to the reception - no bus and no customers - but the reception managed. So I called in my mobile the hotel and immediately answered? Best to describe the check up on the cab as nothing was done. When I asked the receptionist challenged me that she was to book it later - on asking what time that was - she had no idea? The receptionist did not know what time I requested it for (0430) - so it was never actioned. The TV is the smallest I have seen in any Pullman in a wooden box. Not on the wall but limited to the cabinet size. I wake during the night and use the bath room - and small ants in the sink and around the soap? Not the best look for a premium room or hotel. The one reframing feature was the cab turned up 5 min early - as it was the start of his shift. I’m sure I will get the cut and paste reply if the hotel answers - with renovations and staff issues. This does not excuse any of the above. As I use Accor will I use the Pullman again yes - one more try.

Well located. Fitout of the hotel is starting to look tired . I was on l 15
