“Basic but clean”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

I stayed here for a week with my daughter while we explored the area. We just wanted somewhere to sleep and were out all day. My heart sank when I first saw the accommodation - it was very old and very basic. However, it was immaculately clean and we didn't need fancy furniture or facilities and it was cheap. There was everything we needed, including off-street parking. The owner was friendly and helpful. In fact, it was just right for what we wanted.

I would definitely stay here again unless I was planning to spend more time in the apartment and less time out and about.

Room Tip: Get the furthest one away from the road as it gets quite noisy.

I needed to go back to Cairns from interstate for my mothers funeral. We looked for a place that offered a good price and had whatever we needed... we FOUND it!

Basic 2 bedroom apartment... older style building... but clean and the Manager Peter couldn't be friendlier! Whatever our request - it wasn't too much... and the disappointment on his face when his wife was unable to print something for us (for the funeral) was saddened to say the least!

Close to the airport - and to the city on the main street going into town - the traffic noise was a little too much for an aunt (earplugs worked a treat)... although the rest of us found it ok. I turned the air-con on fan to have a rest during the day and that took away the traffic noise.

Thanks so much Peter for making our stay tolerable - under the sad circumstances - it really did alleviate the pressure and your empathy and helpfulness was so very welcome.
