We had a comfortable stay here staying in a studio apartment. The lady at reception was extremely friendly and helpful allowing us to check in early after arriving in cairns early in the day. There is a small pool which is nice. Location is good. Having stayed in a number of hotels in Cairns i think its very slightly over priced but still a good option.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends

The building itself is like a one star motel. It's an old block building and inside feels a little bit like a prison because the blocks are not rendered-they are just painted.

The bathrooms are very old and basic. They are like motel bathrooms.

Facilities are basic and there are some strict rules to staying there, and costs if you break the rules.

Office hours are short and if you arrive after office hours you have to get your key from an outdoor night safe. Make sure that you have this arranged carefully before you arrive otherwise you will be locked out. This gets complicated and messy when you book through a third party.It can be a hassle phoning and emailing to make sure that you can get to your room or apartment.

Beds are shocking, and have probably been there since the days when this place was a motel.

However the staff are fantastic and do their best with what they have.Staff are very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Enquire before booking about the beds. Only book a room with a newish bed and book on that condition.

I cannot praise these apartments enough. Glenda and her staff were helpful and friendly throughout my stay. Apartment was great size with everything I needed. Clean and comfortable. Excellent location as within walking distance of town but away from crowds so quieter. Lovely pool although did not use it as it rained my whole trip.
Would use again if I returned to Cairns.

Room Tip: No lift so if you are not good with stairs get lower room

Cascade Gardens is in a terrific location - you can walk to everything such as The Esplanade, restaurants, the city swimming "lagoon" and a couple of different grocery stores. Our room had a functional kitchen (no stove, so plan accordingly to heat up food via the stovetop or microwave oven) so we were able to purchase and prepare breakfast and lunch items and splurge on dinners out. When we arrived we were worried that the room wouldn't be cool enough for the Cairns heat, but it cooled down nicely and we even turned the temps up a bit because it was so chilly. There are washers and dryers on the second floor so you can get caught up on laundry. We never found time to use the pool there, but it looked inviting. This suite is a quirky, homey place that really made our stay stand out. I would highly recommend this option to anyone staying in Cairns who wants to have the flexibility of dining in combined with a fantastic location (not too close to the action and quiet at night for sleeping).

Room Tip: Our room didn't face the pool, but being near the parking lot turned out to be very convenient for using our rental car.

I've been a solo traveller to cairns for almost 2 years & have only just discovered this amazing little gem!! It has absolutely everything I need, close to restaurants etc., The staff are just amazing!!! I was more than comfortable, I felt very safe & secure (which is very important traveling alone with work). It is truly like a home away from home!! I will be staying here every time I come to cairns in the future.

Room Tip: Home away from Home!!
