We had the most comfortable days in the Tradewinds McLeod Cairns, of our three weeks of touring Queensland. The Accommodation was well priced, spacious, well appointed, clean and we "wanted for nothing". Staff were pleasant and approachable. The motel was easy to find and homely. The Pool was very well maintained and accessible. I would like to return and would... More

Great to hear you liked our accommodation Rose, we put a lot of hard work into this hotel to make it very clean and well maintained and fix any issues as soon as they occur.

We arrived early and were allowed to leave our bags in reception and on return they were in our room. Manager showed us around the complex and how to work gates, placement of rubbish etc. Rooms very clean and comfortable. They have washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and large family fridge. Price was great for what we were looking for and... More

Thanks Kaye for your great review. I find it quite important to give guests a tour of the complex so they know where everything is and how to operate gates etc.. makes you feel more at home and not alienated and have to work things our for yourself. Our accommodation is aimed at families and we provide great services and... More

We arrived in Cairns on an early plane, when we reached the hotel our apartment was not ready. The managers said we could leave our bags at reception and they would be taken to our apartment when it was ready. They then gave us several suggestions of things we could do in the mean time, showed us where all the... More

We stayed here on the basis it had good reviews, met our budget and was not in the middle of the city as we have stayed in mid city locations before on travel in the past and found mid city locations very noisy with party revelers and the night life. During our stay it was very quiet through out the... More

Thanks for the great review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Not being in the middle of the city is definitely quieter and safer for everyone, yet not too far away and can still be walked to easily by most. Hope you had a great trip back home to the USA, hope to see you back again... More

I am simply can't get over the other reviews on this place, i must be the exception i guess. The room was a bit on the "tired" side of things. Bed was REALLY uncomfortable which is why i'm surprised by the other reviews. I must have got the room that hasn't been done up yet. This place wasn't bad but... More

We recently had a 'flying' visit Cairns and Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments provided us with every need. The apartments are functional, comfortable and very clean. It was wonderful to kick back by the pool and simply enjoy the surrounds. Excellent location for walking along the famous Cairns Esplanade and great base to explore the beautiful Northern Beaches.
