“good value for top service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2011

The Oasis Inn was a great place to stay while I travelled through Australia. Customer Care and service was extremely good from Dave and Kirsty who run this establishment. They were only to happy to give me info on local knowledge(buses into Cairns restaurants etc) or excursions to the rain forest, Great Barrier Reef or any number of trips which they can book for you. The Oasis is made up of apartments around a central pool with tables and chairs and bar-b-que area and this is well kept and cleaned every day. The apartment I had was on the upstairs level and each apartment has a table and chairs on the veranda as well as a well furnished interior. Fully equipped kitchen fridge freezer, oven and microwave. Lounge area with tv and folder including tv guide, local take away's and restaurants was very helpful. The bedroom was comfortable and extremley clean as was the bathroom with fresh towels and complimentry soap's shampoo's etc. During my stay I booked 4 excursions, including 2 rain forest,one Great Barrier Reef and a scenic rail trip. All booked and paid for through the Oasis with pick up's outside the front entrance also an early taxi pick up for the airport when I left. I found this a great place to stay as you can walk into Cairns centre along the beautiful esplanade which only takes about 25mins or get the bus out at the front of Oasis as they have a bus stop just along from the entance and coming back the bus stops directly over the road. Kirsty and the chamber maids clean and change linen and there is also a laundry with machines and drying area. I would recommend a stay here as it was very good value and a well presented establishment. Dave and Kirsty were only to happy to help with any questions I had.

I would not recommend this resort- The pictures are misleading and they are very run down motel rooms
Location is bad, you need to be nearer the main strip. We originally booked here for 4 weeks for when we arrived in cairns- we didnt even stay 1 night!!

The Oasis inn was well located to cairns city. The rooms clean and comfortable. Management was excellent and was there to help us in anyway possible. They also organise your trips you want to do at no extra charge. By having all these services provided for us made our holiday extremely enjoyable and relaxing..To management and staff thank you very much.

Although the facilities were adequate to get by, the rooms were nowhere near as appealing as they appear in the photos. The pictures we saw before going to stay here made the place look lovely, it is in fact quite dated with air conditioning that was outdated around 20 years ago and beds that were incredibly uncomfortable.

The staff were very friendly though and the room did have enough for us to get by with.

The bathroom provided us with some amusement due to the shower head being mounted so low in the wall that I actually had to kneel down to have a shower (seriously, no exaggeration at all - I was on my knees to wash my hair!!!).

This Motel is a bit run down but you don't notice it as the more important things are catered for. A lovely swimming pool and great location. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. We really enjoyed our stay here and would return should we visit Cairns again.

  • Liked — the pool, and friendly service
  • Disliked — The lounge chairs were very uncomfortable
