The accommodation was clean, minus the leaking taps in the laundry area which nearly caused flooding of the apartment but after using a can opener to close the taps (as there were no knobs to turn them off) the problem dissolved itself.
The management style was very distasteful. My husband and I have both travelled a lot over the years, as a married couple and as single backpackers and never ever have had a note waiting for us (underneath the door) saying “Don’t forget to check out” on our last day. Just because Cairns does have a lot of young travellers, doesn't mean a married couple should be treated as unresponsible.
Late checkout was not possible. Not for a fee and not even for a couple of hours. Management style was “brutally German” and should be reconsidered.
And BYO salt and pepper. We went to McDonald's to grab some S&P as we were unwilling to buy it for only 4 days and leave the rest behind.
