We have stayed at the Tradewinds McLeod many times and will continue to stay there, after trying other motels. Wayne and Linda are always helpful and make our stay as pleasant as possible.
There is always refurbishments going on from the new kitchen and bathrooms to great gardens and lighting and the best pool and BBQ area I have used. The pool is more secluded compared to other motels, some having pools virtually on the street.
We enjoy walking down to the esplanade, The Pier or to Cairns Central, eating and drinking at the huge array of restaurants and if needed grab a bus back to the motel.

Room Tip: overlooking the pool

Was great to see you back again, I am glad you have noticed all the improvements we are constantly doing all the time when you came back, gives us reassurance that we are doing the right thing and listening to feedback received to get the place improved.
Middle of May 2018 we are getting all new lounge sofas for the rooms, plus some other renovations coming up over the next couple of months that will improve the guest experience even more.
Look forward to seeing you again next time and see what you can see has been done here next.

Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and clean and had everything we required for our 2 night stay, and right near a lovely pool and bbq area. We will choose Tradewind McLeod for our next stay in Cairns.

My husband and I have been in Cairns since October 2016 and since we have to be here during another Wet season we decided to put the caravan in storage and go into a furnished apartment.
After a number of viewings and filling in applications we have finally settled at "Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments"
From my initial phone call enquiring about an advertised 2brm, our acceptance as tennants and dealing with the managers, Wayne and Linda is a pleasure.
The gardens are a tropical delight and the whole complex is extremely clean and inviting.
As a resident who is staying for some time I am very impressed with the timely manner that checkouts are dealt with. The managers, Wayne in particular, are very hands on and nothing is to much trouble.
I do hope that Wayne & Linda are valued by the Body Corporate. As a property owner myself I am very impressed with their management.
Whether it's overnight, short term or for a longer stay I thoroughly recommend a stay at this property

Two couples in 60's. This apartment had the basic amenities expected. It was very clean, well maintained and had been well thought out. There was a washing machine and tumble dryer which were heaven sent after being on the road for five weeks prior to our arrival. Iron and board, TV, fridge and freezer compartment, cooker and microwave. Two good sized bedrooms, a double and two singles. Hanging space wardrobes (this was the only niggle we had there was no shelves or drawers to store clothes on in the bedrooms). The outside areas were also clean and tidy. Good sized pool for the complex, with a gas BBQ available to use if required. Overall very good.

Room Tip: Apartments, some overlooked the pool some didn't.

Anthony,
thanks for your great review, it was a pleasure having you here and we appreciate the great feedback you have given and glad you had a great stay. As you know we are in the midst of a refurbishment and I do agree about the shelves in the wardrobes, they are on the agenda to get done as they have arisen in feedback before. The peak season is coming to a close where we will start doing more unit refurbishments and will see the introduction of shelves in wardrobes.
Just remember if you ever return, just book direct with us through our official website, it can save you hundreds of dollars, up to 20% compared to booking through third party websites as you do not have to pay third party website fees and charges when booking direct. For anyone else who reads this, book direct and save even more, use the promo code "TRIPAD20" on our booking page to get a 20% discount for 2 days or more stay. This has limited availability, you can always try it, valid for all of 2017 though.

We arrived at Tradewinds McLeod and were quickly and efficiently checked in and shown to our apartment. The 2 bedroom apartment was light, airy and spacious, with everything we needed for our stay, and we were reminded that should we need anything more, help was just a phone call away. There were shops, a supermarket and restaurants just a few minutes walk from Tradewinds, and the complimentary Wi Fi worked well. We were so comfortable at Tradewinds that we did less sightseeing than intended, and instead spent more time relaxing at the apartment. When we did need a taxi, the office was pleased to call one on our behalf, and the taxis would arrive promptly. A balcony overlooking the swimming pool was a comfortable place to sit back and enjoy a drink. Everything in the apartment worked well, and the area was quiet and relaxing, so a good nights sleep was assured. All we needed to do was sit back and enjoy our stay! I can thoroughly recommend this property if you are planning a stay in Cairns.

Room Tip: Make any special requests at time of booking. Some rooms are poolside.

Carl,
thanks for your great review. We are glad you found our apartments perfect for your trip to Cairns. We get very good feedback about our close proximity to shops and restaurants, not all hotels can offer this sort of convenience.
Hope to see you again if you come back to Cairns, just remember to book direct for the best price guaranteed.
