"The location and the facility was much better than I expected. I definitely was pleasantly surprised. The room is large and it has everything you need as mentioned in the other reviews. The location is quiet and I did not feel it was unsafe at any time. It is a bit remote but the Esplanade is a 2 km walk or so and it is probably 4 to the center of Cairns. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We had a need for an additional bed and they reacted promptly to satisfy our need. They did even more. An excellent experience. Certainly not a 5 star hotel but a great value for money. "

"I've been here numerous times, and everything is amazing. The common area is so cool and clean, it has a big tv with Netflix, different areas to chill with tables and banks, a big swimming pool, a volleyball court and some hammocks. The have meal deals for just 5$, activities everyday, and a shuttle bus that takes you to Cairns Center. The staff is very friendly and they are always willing to help. There's a good vibe with all the people, and I made good friends over there. One of the best backpackers I've been so far!! Recommended 100%"

"We enjoyed 12 nights at this quiet motel, located close to the airport, a short bus ride to central Cairns and a short walk to the Esplanade. The beds were comfortable and the servicing of the room was great. It was a bonus having a shuttle bus to the city and the same to the airport on departure. The pool and barbecue area was very nice. Geoff, Angie and Deborah were all extremely helpful and pleasant. So nice to be able to ask questions about places to see and to have any requests met with a smile. Would definitely stay there again.

"Of course, the cleanliness and location are the best among Carins. Walkable distance to the reef terminal and night market as well as very close to the supermarket (woodward's). The facility is great, we can connect whatever the device onto the big TV screen in the room to enjoy our night. This is the best part, the staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. We happen to enjoy too much in the hotel and left our house keys. We realised it after we check-out and called the staff for help. They put the effort to find the key for us and even email to our place. We are very appreciated. We cannot pick any drawback at all."

More about Cairns

The tropical city of Cairns is one of Australia’s most popular vacation destinations, located on the northeastern coast of Australia. The city is only an hour from the Great Barrier Reef by boat, so most travelers use Cairns as a jumping-off point to see more of Northern Queensland’s natural features or learn more about the Great Barrier Reef at Reef Teach

Cairns is a relaxed coastal town that welcomes a large number of international tourists every year. Life in this city mostly revolves around days spent at the beach, but travelers will also find other more adventurous pursuits as well. Great Barrier Reef and island cruises of every kind are available from the pier, as well as four wheel drive and eco tours, wine tastings, bird watching, and golf for those staying on the mainland.

Cairns is a great place for fishing enthusiasts, as the city offers a variety of fishing activities and is known as the black marlin capital of the world. The Cairns Tropical Zoo is a favorite among tourists, and especially popular among families because of the interactive experience it offers young explorers.

While Cairns is by no means a party city, it has plenty to keep night owls entertained.

To get into Cairns, most travelers arrive via Cairns International Airport, only seven kilometers from town.

There’s much more to see and learn about Cairns, and the interactive map is a great way to continue uncovering all the important landmarks and attractions of this vibrant city.
