This guesthouse was recommended by Lonely Planet, so I thought it would be a nice place to stay. I was horribly mistaken. After looking at the bedspread, with questionable stains all over it, I decided against getting underneath the sheets. After waking up in the morning (after a very uncomfortable attempt to get some sleep), I went to get something... More

This place was so nice. Maggie, the owner, is a really enthusiastic of Cairns and she manages the place since many years ago. The rooms are beautiful and with personality, not like the many other hotels of Cairns. They were clean, they also have a living room and a Kitchen with all the cutlery and tools, fridge, TV, I don't... More

Upon arrival the host showed annoyance at our presence, we were actually yelled at & insulted by the cleaner/ manager. Furthermore the place was unhygienic so filthy that I had to clean. Completely over priced after the rudeness would not even stay for free. Was a terrible experience ruined our trip.

Rude from the word go. Quick to take your money and then refuses refund, after you don't stay because of the place being very dirty and the horrible rudeness. They also go on peoples appearance and are quick to judge. Very unfriendly and will put a dampener on any holiday. Biggest disappointment in all my years of travelling. Please avoid... More

We booked into this guesthouse hoping to find a bit of Old Australia...history and tradition. Instead we found bugs galore, an uncomfortable bed, a room only marginally clean and old, tired furnishings and bedding. Not good, even at a bargain price. We would advise that you check out some of the other lodgings in Cairns.

A great place to stay,if you don't mind a bit of a walk into town and are not looking for a chain hotel. Maggie is a wonderful source of information, will help you rent a car or book a tour. As her where she is playing and what is happening musically in town, if you are interested in such things.

There is nothing redeeming about this horrid, hot, insect infested place. Dreadful beds with ancient mattresses, pillows that might be mistaken for hardtack, unsavory characters in the hall, showers where the floor appears to be about to fall through, and the only unfriendly Aussie in the whole country. Save yourself from a dreadful experience and go somewhere else. The park... More

Lovely quaint and quirky little place right on cairns esplanade. Lovely walk every morning to the main esplanade, it's like a home away from home, everything you need is in your room and its like a studio flat. Perfect. No hassle and Maggie the owner is more than happy to advise on trips to the reef and quite easily and... More

The price is right and you get what you pay for - the sheets were clean, the toilets and shower worked, there was a room A/C and fan, TV, very slow wireless internet or intermittently working computer in the lobby, no breakfast or food facilities. It is a short trip from the airport, across the Esplanade from the water, about... More

We stayed here for 3 nights back in March and would definitely recommend Maggie's guesthouse. We booked 4 nights but due to flooding further down the coast we had to cancel a night and Maggie was more than happy to do this. She recommended and booked us onto a Reef tour as well as organising an early morning taxi to... More
