We have been going here for many years and have never been disappointed it is close to all our needs. Though it is situated on a main road is quite and secluded. The self contained units with full kitchen are a boon when you wish to maintain a budget and the secure off road parking gives you peace of mind.

Great hotel for the night or a few days. We stayed in a spacious one bedroom apartment. Fully equipped kitchen and large fridge. Bed was comfortable. Walking distance to the race track. Secure parking.

Good choice on the south side

I've stayed here many times over the years, the hosts are great, the hotel clean and well appointed. The complex has a nice pool, tennis court and secure parking and all at a great rate. Thanks for another great stay.

Motel on outskirts of Cairns

Cons: Cleaning and maintenance need a major improvement. Irrespective of what is being charged there is no excuse for poor cleaning.
We were in a 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment had a full kitchen, separate bedroom and separate bath/shower with a washing machine and dryer provided. Overall cleanliness was poor. The couch and chair were stained and had a bad smell. There was a terrible smell emanating from the kitchen cupboards. The vertical blinds were not closing properly and provided little privacy. The air conditioners were adding humidity rather than removing it. The switches for the ceiling fans were not working properly. Overall the room needed a thorough clean and maintenance is required throughout the apartment.

Room had everything you needed.

Large self contained room. Balcony to relax on. Short drive to centre of town. Needs better directions to locate motel.
