Located a fair way away from town in what felt like a rather shady neighbourhood. Luckily we had a rental car, would definitely NOT feel safe walking here from town in the dark. The whole place is very dated and could do with refurbishment. Old style bath, old tapware. Did not feel clean. On the plus side - Beds were... More

Stayed here for a few nights when visiting Cairns. The rooms were nice and reasonably priced with free wifi in the rooms. We had a double bed each too which was also a nice touch. The downside for me mainly was the area - felt really unsafe especially at night and it is a good 20/25 minute walk into town... More

One of the best place I've ever stayed. It's not a posh place, but you are very welcomed with the managers, they are always be there for everything you need. Very kind staff, if I have another opportunity, I'll be there again. I recommend.

The Cairns Holiday Lodge is in a great location on the edge of Cairns. The motel is only a 10 minute drive from the airport and around 20 minutes walk into town. The owners are very friendly and helpful, the place looks a little tired in places but represents good value. Free Wi-Fi and great parking.

Booked under the impression that security was up to snuff for this day and age. All photos on the web show private balconies. Our unit has a dodgy door lock that a 2 year old could pick, and no private balcony. Instead we have this all accessible sliding door that is open to anyone to walk by and snoop in.... More

Now I understand why the reviews for this place are so contrasting. The owners are lovely and can't do enough for you. The location is close to town but also a short distance from the airport. However, our particular room is in need of maintenance. The door lock is only home style and you need to remember to push the... More

The Cairns Holiday Lodge is a great motel on the edge of Cairns. The motel is only a 15 minute drive from the airport and a 15-20 minute walk from the middle of Cairns. The area is quite apart from the main road but the traffic noise is hardly noticeable. There are fast food restaurants and mini-supermarkets just down the... More

We stayed here for a week and thought it was great. Clean rooms, very quiet. About a 25 min walk to Cairns city centre. Suzie was very helpful with all aspects of our stay, including booking tours for us. Would recommend.

Once again Susie and Mike have excelled. They were more than attentive to our needs, always available. Rooms were spotlessly clean. Sure air conditioner was loud but ceiling fans were more than adequate. See you next September!

This motel is a little outside the centre of Cairns (about 30 minutes walk). Very helpful and nice owners, and reasonable sized room. The downside is the air-con which is very loud, but you really need to use it in Cairns.
