Cairns Queenslander was good value, clean and a well positioned motel. I'm sure I'll stay again when in Cairns.

It has good proximity to the esplanade. A 20-25 easy stroll into the city centre.

This property is a little older and not as equipped as some newer properties. Easy to get around from this location being close to public transport and on a main road to get too and from easily

Close enough to the CBD and other facilities. The room I was in was quite noisy due to concrete floors used along all the passage-ways. No toaster or microwave in the room was a bit disappointing. Staff were friendly.
