Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great people. My booking was buggered up. I was booked in two places at once but not later in the month for work. Called and spoke to staff re my situation and it was sorted professionally and without fuss. I’ve stayed at Aspect Central many many times and will continue to do so. Highly recommend.

The location is quite a long walk from central Cairns and the esplanade. The motel was part of a cheap package deal and I found it most unpleasant. The bedding was clean but the undersheet was torn. I was in 2 different rooms on the ground floor due to a broken toilet flush in first, and both rooms were dingy with grubby floors and very tired decor. There were tiny bugs everywhere. A young couple upstairs completed the horrid experience by arguing and chucking things around each night. Not recommended.

Fantastic stay 1 night either side of an sland trip. Staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful and Sam especially was great but the two ladies we saw before also helped loads. Given a ground floor room because of our many bags which was really kind and above and beyond. 5 star service. Motel itself was very clean and tidy for the price we paid and comfortable and homely with our 2 children. Honestly couldn't fault it for £70 a night. Really it's a taxi ride into Cairns considering the heat and with children but there is a row of shops and takeaways just across the road. For what we paid a fantastic experience. Not a 5 star tourist hotel (and doesn't sell itself as such) but we had 5 star service and two very satisfactory stays.

When we arrived in our room we discovered two cockroaches. After trying out the shower it leaked over the door and onto the wall getting the whole bathroom soaked (we proceeded to fix this for the rest of our stay). We asked one of the staff members for the wifi password and they said it was open and anyone could use it. This was not so. They did however respond to our email the next day. Over all we understand you get what you pay for but we were expecting a lot more from a 3.5 star hotel.

This motel suited my purposes. It’s not in the best location (on the main highway). But, it had free car parking & an adequate room with all that I needed. The bathroom was good. Late check in procedure worked well, as did early check out. If passing though, a good choice.

Older style,nice large rooms, lots of character, it was extremely clean. All the extras ( soap, shampoo) bonus was cooking element, and frying pan, plenty of utensils. Nice pool. Across the road from the hospital and shops. Easy walk into Cairns CBD. Would definitely stay here again

The room itself was fine, a little run down and old but clean and well equipped with all I needed in the spa room. However I would not recommend staying here or ever consider returning, because local LOUD drunks spend all night roaming from the nearby pub to the liquor store and hanging around right outside the room (it’s next to the street), trying to bum smokes off passers by and guests. After the liquor suppliers shut for the night the extremely drunk locals continued to party with their alcohol on the streets until dawn, brawling, swearing, and screaming at high volume. I am on a tight budget but splashed out on the spa room for one night as a treat for myself to relax and recharge. Relaxation was definitely not an option as laying back in a spa while intimidating, sad, drunks scream obscenities right next to the window isn’t my idea of serenity. I barely managed to get a couple of hours of broken sleep due to the extreme and alarming screams. It was Friday night when I stayed but I wandered past there on a Sunday night and it was just as bad. Aspect central clearly has no security or ability to keep the environment peaceful, staff are barely there and very unenthusiastic. The backpackers around the corner offered a much more safe and serene environment for a quarter of the price. You’ve been warned- stay away!

O.K. so it wasn't built yesterday, the rooms are spacious & clean,late check in(reduced hours covid19) text with safe code, key in envelope. early out ,key in box. never saw any staff, but spoke to Heather on phone,had booked for June, but held the booking,handy for food, shops, Cock & bull pub, tour pickups. as I was doing tours 3 days it was perfect for bed & shower,might not be there much longer, if your nostalgic for the 60's this is for you. sadly covid has closed the pool, but all up $70 a night for double is great value, just don't expect the Hilton.
