Tropical Queenslander Cairns Holiday Studio & Apartment
Ranked #49 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed November 16, 2006

Stayed here for 1 night in Nov 06, was a bit out of the centre of cairns, and has a landing flight path over it, but not too noisy.

Room was big, but bath was tiny, (about 3 foot!!!) I did sit in it for comedy value though.

Nearby Balinese restaurant was very nice, about 5 mins walk towards Cairns centre. Also hotel is only 100 yards from the esplanade, for a nice walk into the town centre, (looks better when the tide is in)

Staff were OK, and the do have internet access, and 2 pools.

Breakfast was reasonably priced, and filling.

If you are looking for a well-priced, average motel, then Tropical Queenslander is perfect.

The location is a 20 minute walk to downtown Cairns and the marina, and a 10 minute drive from the airport.

The room was clean and spacious. This motel has 2 small pools, however no restaurant nor internet access. You have to walk 5 minutes down the road to their sister motel for food and internet - no big deal.

Basic amenities, no frills, but decent for the price. I would recommend it.

Stayed here for 2 nights in January. The rooms were a good size and clean although the bathroom did seem to be getting a bit dated. The room was equipped like a little apartment with a microwave, fridge, hot plate etc. The only problems with the room was that the cupboard was very musty, but generally the room was fine.
The actual complex was good with a couple of little laundry rooms, what seemed to be a nice swimming pool although we did not get time to use it, and a little restaraunt with a very friendly cook which was very well priced. The reception was clean and the staff were friendly.
Although situated about a 25 minute walk away from the main town, cabs were plentiful and relatively cheap so found it a good base for our Great Barrier Reef trip.

Location wise it is not too far from the airport, so you do occasionally get some aircraft noise. This also leaves it about a 25 minute walk into the centre of town, although it is a pleasant stroll it is very quiet so I advise a taxi at night (which wasn't too expensive).

Really friendly staff made the check in process easy, although if arriving out of hours the reception is closed and there is a sign for a number to call, so just be aware of this.

The pools are clean and great to cool off in.

Breakfast is served by one of the friendliest guys I have ever met, although he did go on about having no tomatoes for his fried breakfast (he was a lot more bothered than I was).

All in all a great place to stay, although it has no restuarant you do get vouchers for the restuarant in it's sister hotel (Cairns Queenslander) just a short walk away. The food here was fantastic.
The only gripes were that although the AC was extremely efficient it needed your room key to activate so it was off when you were out, it was also a little loud. The view from the balcony more than made up for this.

I recommend this hotel as a budget base to see the the Cairns area and would have no hesitation to return.

Basic motel room, clean, good cooking facilities. Friendly staff. Located very close to the beach, although quite a walk in to town >30 mins. Cheap Bus service runs on to town, so not a huge problem.

The Tropical Queenslander provided clean and comfortable rooms with pleasant surroundings. Reception was very friendly and prompt responses were given to our requests. It was a bit of a hike to the city centre but taxi fare was only about $5.

The staff here was so friendly and helpful. Rooms are reasonably priced and include a kitchen w/ fridge, sink, microwave. The rooms are clean and facilities are nice. The only drawback is that it's about a 20-25 minute walk from central Cairns, so there aren't a lot of places to eat nearby.
