I understood why reviews on the female manager are so contrasting. She is nice and helpful unless you don't complain anything and book a tour with her. 1) I had booked a room with kitchenette first, but the room description was changed later. I sent inquiry because I wanted to cook during my stay. They kindly offered me an upgrade... More

A neat and nice place to stay. Very decently priced. Super market, bakery and eateries at 5 mins walk. The Cairns Esplande is about 2km away. The hotel help you take sightseeing & adventure tours around with decent discounts.

We stayd with a friend in a studio that was spacious, bright and very clean. We both had queen sized beds and the kitchenette had all we needed for simple cooking. There is an amazing view to the rainforest that left us speechless! Also good laundry possibility and a pool are available for all guests. We felt like home in... More

We stayed here for a week not knowing what to expect and although slightly dated our hotel room was spotless and had everything we needed, especially air conditioning! Mike and Susanne were both very helpful when booking activities, as well helping us with the local area with shops and restaurants etc. Thank you for our stay!

Located a fair way away from town in what felt like a rather shady neighbourhood. Luckily we had a rental car, would definitely NOT feel safe walking here from town in the dark. The whole place is very dated and could do with refurbishment. Old style bath, old tapware. Did not feel clean. On the plus side - Beds were... More

Stayed here for a few nights when visiting Cairns. The rooms were nice and reasonably priced with free wifi in the rooms. We had a double bed each too which was also a nice touch. The downside for me mainly was the area - felt really unsafe especially at night and it is a good 20/25 minute walk into town... More

One of the best place I've ever stayed. It's not a posh place, but you are very welcomed with the managers, they are always be there for everything you need. Very kind staff, if I have another opportunity, I'll be there again. I recommend.

The Cairns Holiday Lodge is in a great location on the edge of Cairns. The motel is only a 10 minute drive from the airport and around 20 minutes walk into town. The owners are very friendly and helpful, the place looks a little tired in places but represents good value. Free Wi-Fi and great parking.

Booked under the impression that security was up to snuff for this day and age. All photos on the web show private balconies. Our unit has a dodgy door lock that a 2 year old could pick, and no private balcony. Instead we have this all accessible sliding door that is open to anyone to walk by and snoop in.... More

Now I understand why the reviews for this place are so contrasting. The owners are lovely and can't do enough for you. The location is close to town but also a short distance from the airport. However, our particular room is in need of maintenance. The door lock is only home style and you need to remember to push the... More
