Me, my husband and daughter stayed here 25 Sept 2014. When looking for this place its not actually Bruce H'way as stated for the address. If coming from airport end you need to look for SERVICE LANE this runs off Bruce H'way, the turn is just before the bridge this will take you to the motel. We stayed in a... More

Heather and I stayed here on the recommendation of another couple and we were not disappointed. Reasonably priced and high standard of service from our hosts and their friendly staff. Not too far from the city itself and definitely much quieter than being in the city proper. Very happy with our stay and more than happy to recommend to others.... More

Thankyou Michael. It was lovely to meet you and Heather. Hope you are keeping warm down there. I heard it was snowing in the Adelaide hills. We are still having nice sunny days and lots of people are using the pool every day. Take care and we hope to see you again one day in sunny Cairns. More

This motel ticked all the boxes for me. Economical, clean, comfortable and quiet. The hostess was very helpful and friendly. Although close to the highway I heard no traffic noise in the unit. This motel is not in the heart of cairns but most of cairns is just a short drive. A tavern with very good meals is only a... More

I didn't get to stay at this apartment but was booked in for the weekend which happened to be the same as Cyclone Ita was due. When I booked the unit I asked if they could send a confirmation email and was told that they could if I really wanted but the booking was ok and there really wasn't any... More

Hello Marion Thankyou for your concerns regarding our cancellation policy. I think you would find that all accommodation complexes have the same policy. Sorry you felt that the amount was to harsh. We only took 1 night of your stay. We wish you good luck and apoligize for any misunderstandings. More

We stayed in a modern, roomy, well appointed 2 bedroom unit with everything we could have possibly wanted. Secure parking and very friendly staff. Close enough to shopping centres. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Cairns Reef apartments and Motel is very good value if you are looking for a extended holiday as they have some great deals. The accommodation is 3.5 star and our motel unit was clean and comfortable. The only negative was that the unit was not serviced. This may have been because we were there over Christmas.

I stayed here during the week of the Total solar eclipse (Nov 2012) and it was a great spot to base myself. Getting to town was easy, a bus stop right outside the gate and the drivers known the stop on the way back from town ($A3.50 each way). The owners were always friendly and helpful and offer great advice... More
