First of all, keep in mind that Cascade Gardens is NOT a hotel, but "Holiday Apartments". This means you won't have room service if you're staying for less than 7 days. GOOD POINTS: good location (close to the commercial district), rooms are spacious and equipped with kitchen (and some even with laundry). BAD POINTS: no elevator (if you're staying in... More

We stayed in a two-bed family suite, which was terrific value. Comfortable beds, large living area and a basic kitchenette. There was also a washing machine and dryer, which was a welcome surprise. There is a very pleasant BBQ area and pool. It's only a few blocks to the esplanade and the centre - close enough to walk, far enough... More

I stayed at Cascade Gardens with my brother and we found it to be the pefect location - very close to all the nightlife and a great place to stay. Our room had all the luxuries you would expect from a 4 or 5 star hotel and was still intimate enough in its surroundings that you can relax by the... More

Stayed here on the first few nights of a trip travelling down the east coast of Australia from Cairns to Sydney. The rooms are basic, but just as you would expect for 95AUD per night. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was clean, the shower was good and had full laundry facilities. The hotel is about a 10... More

Good central location, walking distance to downtown shopping and boardwalk. My room was a self contained apartment (with kitchenette) and everything was in good working order. Very comfortable and trouble free. My only complaint is the construction happening next door, not the hotel's fault obviously. Construction was loud and my room faced the parking which was quite ugly. The reception... More

This is the second time my wife and I travelled to Cairns for Medical Treatment and having stayed at Cascade Gardens the first time and being utterly impressed, it was certain we would be returning!
