The room was ok and it was clean. The pool was pretty good though, we spent a couple of hours there. We just needed to fly out of cairns early so needed a place to stay one night. However, do not stay here if you think it is close to the airport, which it is. The cost was still 2... More

Aspect Central is a great place to stay. I was fortunate enough to stay here for twelve nights and it was an excellent decision. The rooms are very clean and room service was very good. The reception staff could not have been more helpful giving me helpful advice. The walk in to the city centre is scenic if you walk... More

The place looks nothing like the pictures, the rooms are tiny and overall a very poor experience. It was however clean and a bed so we made do, and also made sure we spent the minimal amount of time possible there.

After reading some negative reviews we were a bit apprehensive about staying at Aspect Central, but it was located well for our needs and the price was right. In fact, as it transpired, everything was right. We were greeted warmly on arrival and the room was fine - clean, comfortable and quite spacious. It exceeded our expectations, and supplied everything... More

I stayed twice there with a liveaboard trip in between, and only came back for the second time because I had it prepaid over the internet. The rooms are very reasonable but housekeeping is very lousy, apparently they hire students to do it and it simply doesn´t work. The first room we stayed at had lots of mould in the... More

The exterior is great, beautiful plantings and paint/décor. Inside is quite comfortable, but TV posed a challenge and the cooking/self service a bit limited. Great for a short stay and a very convenient location.

My partner and I booked last minute as Valentines get away. We didn't realise that this motel was self rated as a 4, our mistake. It should have been a 2 or 1. There was blood on the wall near the bed. The tiles in the spa were really yucky. The room had a horrible strong smoking smell as did... More
