We visited here for a family holiday. The Manager is fantastic, he waited up for us to arrive when our plane was delayed and did everything he could to make our stay pleasant. The rooms are very clean. It's good value accommodation. The two bedroom is a bit more like a studio with one bedroom but overall it's good value.

I had a lovely stay here , it's clean and tidy just what I was looking for. I had hospital appointments and it was close enough to walk there. The esplanade is only a short walk and so are the shops. I will defiantly stay again - thank you very much.

I think the best way to describe this place is average. The rooms are good size, not exactly modern but not terribly outdated either. The shower had great pressure and was very powerful. Wifi was good for free. Location is a decent walk to the centre of cairns so if you want something central this place isn't for you. There...

We loved our stay at the lovely Tropical Queenslander. Our to and fro organisational emails were polite; the friendly staff welcomed us; our double room was good and clean and we were close to the esplanade where we walked in the sun. We recommend this budget hotel highly. Go on: do yourself a favour!

This hotel has had some very unfair reviews in my opinion . It is a very reasonablely priced budget accommodation consisting of various sized self catering studeo's. The prices vary depending on the length of your stay. Ie, 1 night, 3+ nights, weekly and long term lets . The manager even let me book a half day as I had...

Thank you for your unexpected review from you. Some staffs have broken to tear when reading it as we often heard complaints from unhappy customers. Thank you for your appreciation. It is a great support for our staff's morale.

Very good sized-room for the weekend. Nice and quiet as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD/Esplanade area; but still close enough to walk to [20 mins] or a short drive. Laundry and other facilities are good - did not have dinner in the restaurant, however breakfast was good with selection of continental and cooked meals....

Went on a trip down under and found a great place to stay. The students enjoyed their beds, tv, cold rooms and the pool. After every outing the place made the kids feel at home and this made them enjoy their class trip. The staff did a great job cleaning up the rooms and busing was easy. Thanks for a...

Great experience right from the start. Stayed two nights. Walked in off the street with no booking, told the manager our preference was ground floor, parking close to room, good wifi, quiet. Got all that. Nice large room, wanted for nothing. We've stayed in various similar complexes in Cairns over the past 3 years and this is the best so...
