Thanks for your review, glad you found our refurbished apartment nice, but as you say we are no comparison to the Hilton at all, totally different style and classification of accommodation, incomparable. Nearly all of the issues you encountered could have easily been fixed if immediately reported and that would have made your stay much more enjoyable. We are budget... More

Myself and two of my family members were fortunate enough to stay at Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments for 12 nights during our trip to Cairns and found it to be a fantastic experience.

Having not been to Far North Queensland before, I needed a good "base camp" to explore the region. Tradewinds McLeod is on the edge of Cairns and North Cairns which was either a short bus trip or a walk down the Esplanade to the CBD. The Apartment had everything I needed for a stress-free 6 day stay. The Staff were... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The apartment was quite basic as we expected it to be, however, it was very clean and contained everything we needed. The location was a good 20 minutes walk from town but again we knew this prior to booking. We received excellent service from Wayne and his wife throughout... More

We stayed at the apartment for 7 nights, the couple at the reception were very helpful guiding us on places to visit and finding us good deals for holiday attractions. The apartment is convenient, nice swimming pool with attractive lighting at night. Air conditioners work fine, good washing and drying facilities. Overall good experience, strongly recommended.

We stayed in these apartments for a week and thought they are well priced for self-contained units, that are located 5 min drive or 20-minute walk to town centre. The bedrooms are a good size for 2 people and bathroom contains a washing machine and dryer, which was good. The man at reception was very helpful and provided good advice... More

We stayed for 6 nights while holidaying in Cairns. The apartment was clean and spacious. I followed other reviewers' advice and asked for a room away from the road, and we ended up with one right next to the pool, which was great.
