Self catering appartment. Quiet, spacious room, comfortable bed, very adequate cooking facilities and kitchen ware. A couple of blocks from the ocean and the strores. 3.5 blocks from food market. Air conditioning was effective and of course necessary; Cairns is tropical. Staff most helpful. Lots of information on local trips and they make the reservations for you. Tours will pick... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cascade Gardens. We had a very spacious ground-floor room with direct access to the swimming pool area. The room was clean, bright and modern, with a great kitchen area, a sofa, twin beds, and sliding doors out onto a patio. Although the room was at the front of the hotel, it was quiet,... More

I stayed for 6 nights, I found the open studio was very comfortable indeed, it was very modern with wooden floors and brand new kitchen too. The bed and pillows were amazing and I had the best 6 nights sleep I've had in a long time, as it was nice and quiet too. Glenda on reception was fantastic so friendly... More

We had an enjoyable 8 day stay in a one bedroom self-contained apartment at the back of the complex, as requested, for quietness. The stairs were a little daunting at first, as we had luggage to carry up the two flights, but we managed better later. The apartment was adequate size-wise apart from the balcony which was very small and... More

I stayed here for 8 days then 3 days and it was fantastic. The rooms were clean and tidy, the staff extremely friendly and so helpful. The only downside to these apartments is the lack of a lift but that's so minor in comparison to the rest of the place. Some of the apartments could do with upgrading as could... More

I visited cairns most recently and stayed at cascade gardens in a studio apartment, which was perfect, clean, comfortable, bright, bed was comfortable & air conditioning Hair dryer provided. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Walking to large super market was manageable as was strolling to the esplanade and enjoying the beautiful lagoon. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would...

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of April. The apartment was clean, well appointed and reasonably quite given it's location on the edge of the CBD. It's a bit dated, but the price more than compensates for that. The kitchen was well equipped and little things like having a clothes horse and a washing machine were great.... More

We have just got back to Melbourne after a fantastic stay in Cairns. Our apartment was lovely, spacious and very clean. We really enjoyed our last day lazing around the pool, which was like a little oasis! The BBQ area was very clean and great to cook hamburgers and sausages on! Cascade Gardens is in a great location, a 5... More

Enjoyed 6 nights here with my son and found it to be clean, well equipped and central. Not so central that it was noisy but close enough to Esplanade, Jim Jam Cafe and a few blocks from Woolworths. Caught a taxi from the airport to here and it cost AUD20. We walked to the night markets most evenings, had dinner... More
