Very family friendly, rooms were clean but a bit dated but value for money at the same time. A car is needed, luckily we had driven to Cairns so if you want to get around quickly it would be a cab or otherwise take some time and go for a decent walk.

Room Tip: Quiet location poolside with no night noise. Overall a great stay.

Thanks for your great review. We are slowly going through rooms replacing outdated furniture, a lot have been done so far, still several to go, but the we are working on it slowly, its a process that will take a few years as funds and time present themselves.
We are also working on the common area putting in new paths, lighting and painting to improve the look.
Whether or not a car is needed is up to the guest, some walk into the city and back every day, some get a taxi, some get a bus from the bus stop over the road, some hire a car, once in a while some hire a bicycle, everyone is different.
Hope to see you again some day.
Everyone, just remember to book direct for the best price guaranteed.

Excellent self contained budget accomodation for families. Apartment was clean and appropriately furnished. We (family of 2A/3C) stayed for 1/52, using apartment as a base. Relatively close to centre (public transport close by if one doesn't have a hire car) with shopping facilities within minutes walking distance. Management very friendly and most obliging. Highly recommended if looking for value for money accomodation without the bells and whistles. Thank you to Wayne for his hospitality

DrK,
Thanks for your great review, was lovely having you stay with us and we are glad our apartment met your needs for you for your stay at the price you liked.
We aim at the families on a budget with bare necessities so to be affordable for the people that don't want to or cant spend the big bucks for flashy Serviced Apartments with ALL the bells and whistles that half of which most people won't even use, yet we have most bells and whistles available at small extra charges ready to be used if needed to keep costs low for everyone.
As you probably saw while you were here we are always improving the hotel doing stuff around the grounds making it better all the time and acting on feedback from guests.
Hope to see you again one day, just remember booking direct gives everyone the best price guaranteed.

The apartments are well kept and clean. They are contained not serviced apartments. The bed is soft and comfortable for sleeping. You have plenty of privacy and independence. Fridge/freezer and utensils are supplied so you just pay a visit to the supermarket and get what food you'll need.

Room Tip: If you don't like climbing stairs ask for a ground floor apartment

Euan,
Thanks for the great review, it was a pleasure having you here.
Yes we are self contained apartments, a lot of people tend to get self contained and serviced apartments mixed up, the difference is that self contained apartments are just that, self contained, and no daily room services or top ups of toiletries etc.. and are cheaper where Serviced Apartments have daily room service and toiletries top up and are more expensive because of this. If you don't need all these extra services then its cheaper to get a self contained apartment like ours.
Hope to see you again one day, just book direct, like you did, for the best price. The savings are quite a lot.

We've been returning to Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments for several years now, simply because we love the convenient location on the outskirts of the main city area and the spacious self-contained apartments, which are comfortable and well equipped for short or long stay holidays. There is a centrally located, shady garden with swimming pool, sunbeds and BBQ with sitting area. The staff are very friendly and helpful and are happy to assist with tour bookings and car hire. You will find a supermarket, delicatessen, bakery and a good variety of cafes and takeaways just around the corner and it's a short walk to the beautiful Esplanade for a leisurely stroll to the Lagoon and the many shops, bars and restaurants in Cairns. We've checked out many other places, but found they don't compare for a fully, self-catered holiday at such an affordable price.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms we've stayed in have been cool, quiet and more relaxing

We enjoyed the quietness of the location. Easily accessible to shops and an easy walk to central Cairns. Staff were friendly and accomodating, booking all our tours at a discount rate. Would definitely recommend staying here, the apartment was a great size having everything you need for a comfortable holiday at an excellent price.

Julzz,
Thanks for your great review, it was a pleasure having you stay with us and we are glad we cold assist in tour bookings and advice.
We welcome you to return any time to see what things we are about to do to the complex as a whole to improve it from all the guest feedback we have received over the years.
Hope to see you again soon.
Everyone just remember to book direct for the best price, avoid third party websites, they are more confusing and more expensive than anything.
