Where do I start. I booked Apt #304 via Short term accommodation and the process was easy and pain free. The room on the other hand was shocking. On arrival I noticed that the power point I had to use for the kitchen hot plates was handing out from the room (see picture). Surely when the cleaned the room from... More

Had a short term rental there and it was a nightmare. If you like infestation of cockroachs, silverfish,spiders, bed bugs, power outages daily, stuck in elevators, getting locked in fire escape, water leakage in the kitchen, car broken into 4 times, and used junkie needles in the laundry then this is the place for you. No amount of renovations will... More

This hotel had a great bed but no balcony. The bathroom was adequate but the fridge was not working. The service was excellent. It took them 2 minutes to come and help me with the TV and they were very accommodating and helpful. Checking out late was not an issue and I could store my baggage and get the airport... More

I am currently here overnight for work and it was not my choice to be accommodated here! Do not believe the website it is nothing like the pictures! It may have been nice 20 years ago but I'm guessing they haven't done a thing to it since! I will say the lady at the desk was lovely and very proud... More

Was booked into the All Seasons Sunshine Tower at Cairns, first impression was not good from the outside. Checked into the room and found bed bugs in the bed. Packed my gear up and left there and found another motel to check into. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

The accomodation up front, although a bit old school, seemed ok for the money. The room rate was $80 per night, not a lot but concidering how many are on the same road for cheaper, i would expect better. I asked for the room to be serviced and all that was done was the rubbish bin empties. The old towels... More

This is an affordable, but ordinary hotel on the main road from Cairns city out to the airport and the north. The rooms are fairly standard motel-style arrangements with nothing special to note. The bathroom was a bit faded. There were a few things I wouldn't have accepted in a higher-rated hotel, but given the price (quite cheap for Cairns)... More

Stayed for work overnight. Staff were friendly. Clean & tidy, basic & dated room (505) with good size & OK view of mountains. It is on the main road from the airport but I did not have any problems with noise & slept well in comfortable bed. Breakfast was included in my rate which I would recommend unless you want... More
