The room I had was just fabulous for the length of stay I had. (12 days) It had everything I needed, I was able to cook myself a meal when I felt like staying in. I was within walking vicinity to all I wanted to access in the city and bus service was only minutes away. Staff was happy and friendly and helpful.

This is not the place to stay. Advertised as a Motel on Wotif. It turns out to be a Car Rental company with rooms. The studio rooms are not in the Motel but a couple of doors down in Car Rental car yard. Not a nice place. Don't stay here. The Studios are not serviced and if you need something you have to go back to main office to get it. If you have the misfortune to stay in the Car Yard it is noisy. Avoid this place.

Mr Treacy, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy you stay in our newly renovated deluxe studios. Yes there is a hire car business operating from the same building but separate to the holiday units. The studios are serviced at an extra cost.

It was the worst hotel experience I have had. The owner of this business is horrible to deal with. Don’t stay here.

Sorry that you were offended by me asking if you were the only person staying in the room. As we have had on numerous occasions quest booking a room for only 1 persons checking in and have found more people occupying the room. We ask this of all our guests checking in and again apologise if you were offended.

Don’t let the exterior building deter you from booking these beautifully renovated apartments. They are a beautiful gem inside, also friendly and helpful staff. Located on the main strip of Cairns city and close to car rental places.
