It's obvious that this is an older hotel, but my fiance and I still really enjoyed our stay. The room was huge! It had a queen bed, a twin bed, kitchen area with sink and mini fridge, and a kitchen table. It was the most spacious of any room we had during our visit to Australia. It was clean but... More

We arrived in Cairns the night after the solar eclipse, accommodation was scarce, we had been booked into a property which was totally unsuitable. A phone call to Dave at Cairns Queenslander resulted in us changing our accommodation for our 3 night stay in Cairns. Our studio unit was large, had a very comfortable super king bed, excellent ensuite facilities,... More

A group of us stayed in a connected 2 bedroom self contained apartment. It was 2 rooms with 2 sofa beds. The rooms were clean (cleaned every day with fresh towels), the AC was good, we had unlimited use of the washer in our unit and the bathrooms were nice. It was also very quiet once the doors were closed.... More

Laundry facilities available which were needed after 3 weeks away from home. staff extremely friendly and very helpful.

Enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay in a hibiscus 1 bedroom apartment. The complex benefits from 24 hour reception desk, useful because our flight meant we arrived just before midnight.

We enjoyed our time here, staff provide excellent friendly service. Bedrooms & bathroom are small, noisy aircon outside but for the price and service it's definately worth the stay. I'll be back! Thank you

We stayed in the hibiscus 2 bedroom apartment and felt we were very much the poor citizens to the rest of the building which appears to have been refurbished. Whilst the apartment was spacious, the beds were comfortable and sheets and towels new and clean, the property had terrible florescent strip lighting through out, no bedside lamps, tatty outdoor furniture,...
