I didn't really like the tiled floors. Also, the entry is shared between two different rooms and when your neighbours enter and exit their rooms, it's a loud process. I liked the covered parking area. I didn't like the location of the laundry machines. They were far away from the rooms and outside. The location isn't too great as it... More

The Apartments are very well appointed rooms for families. I was pleasantly surprised at the roominess of them and the complexes facilities. The pool area was very well laid out with bbqs gas and electric, fridge table settings very roomy and best thing was my kids loved it. Thank you for a wonderful stay Will definitely be back.

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 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
