This little hotel is just what you need. It was our first time visiting Aus from the UK and the first place we stayed it - couldn't have asked for a better start! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Despite the jet lag I didn't really mind waking up to the sound of tropical birds outside! The family staff... More

We had to move our days as one of us was sick. They were so helpful and very lovely. They did everything they could to assist and we're happy to change things around. Great base for our week in cairns as it was out of the craziness but we could still walk everywhere. Rooms were self contained apartments and were... More

Chose this based on other trip advisor reviews. Cascade Gardens is within easy walking distance - 10 mins, of the esplanade and main shops and restaurants yet was quiet at night. Good choice for accommodation within this price range. We did have a few maintenance issues but the staff on site were very helpful. Car hire options just down the... More

We enjoyed 4 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment. Yes, from the outside the building looks a little tired when compared to more modern buildings, but we found the inside to be very good. Everything was very clean within the apartment, it was well equipped and most importantly, everything worked. All tours will pick up directly from outside and as... More

Unfortunately our room was in an L shaped corner, so i am guessing this is the reason why we constantly haf a smoke smell. It really ruined our stay as we could never hsve the doors or windows open. But ss the hotel directs guests to smoke on the balcony tjis problem will continue. I cant complain about facilities of... More

We stayed at the Cascade Gardens Apartments in Lake Street Cairns from 15th to 20th August 2015. Shenoa and Glenda run a great place and nothing is too much trouble for them. We have stayed there before over the years, but the apartments have been undergoing refurbishments over the past couple of years and they have come up great. If... More

Cascade Gardens was perfect for our stay in Cairns. Walking distance to most of our needs also perfectly placed if you need the transit system. We stayed there 5 nights & had a corner room 2nd floor. We had alot of daytime activities,so were there mostly to cook supper & sleep. We had a great comfortable room with cooking amenities... More
