My saga with this property began about a week before arrival. Travelling alone and needing to spend one night in Cairns I wasn't too bothered where I stayed and when I saw a "mystery" 4 Star hotel advertised on Wotif.com at what seemed a reasonable price, I took the bait and booked it. I was a little disgruntled when the... More

This motel is a big disappointment and luckily there are so many others, even in the same street. I walked in with a big smile, up to Reception where a stocky lady with no smile whatsoever only said sternly: "1pm is check-in time". I had committed a crime.... You don't feel welcome here. I was told the next day, by... More

The motel was close enough to the Esplanade and a good base for exploring Cairns surrounds. Courtyard was was tree-lined with a beautiful pool and an on-site restaurant. Room was clean with a huge very trendy bathroom. Bed was comfy and tea/coffee adequate. We did notice cooking facilities were electric plug-in variety (i.e. detached cooktop) but we weren't cooking in... More

We stayed there for five nights! The room was very good and very comfortable! The bathroom big and we also had a little table with two chairs outside our room in order to take our breakfast in the nature. The receptionist is very helpful and polite! The location is good enough, it is 20 min walk from the cairns center... More

Clean motel with friendly staff. Very nice rooms for the price and one of the better "budget" motels in Cairns. My only complaint was the bed was very hard, not very comfortable and needs replacing. The single beds were comfortable though and my daughter had a great sleep.

'Average' seems a little harsh but 'very good' seems too generous. I would describe it as 'good' if that was an option! The room was relatively small for 3 adults (we were put into a family room) but it was clean and everything was in working order. Perhaps our room was better than others (based on a couple of bad...

The after hours checkin was an interesting experience: Follow the signs, find the call button, call is made, voice asks questions, says to wait while he looks for something, then nothing, then beep. A few min later I press the button again, the same voice asks where I'm calling from, seems unconvinced, eventually gives pin code for safe with room... More

This was last minute booking as needed 1 night before my liveabroad at the Great Barrier Reef. Did not get a chance to shop around. Was extremely disappointed as even though room had the required amenities it needed a bit of fixing. Like the sheet had stains and I had to request fresh ones. Air-Con was leaking. Even though WiFi... More

We live in the Northern Beaches Cairns, and as we had a very early flight we stayed in a hotel/motel close to the airport. Our motel of choice was the aspect central for no other reason than we saw the name driving home from towm. It is fairly close to the airport, Cairns CBD and the Esplanade. I would be... More
