Thanks for your great review. I am glad people are recognising our efforts to keep the place up to scratch piece by piece. It doesn't happen all at once but piece by piece. Last year we replaced all the cooking pots and pans with good quality ones, this year we replaced the lounge sofas. It is all the guest feedback that brings around all these changes. Once people start mentioning things are getting old or worn out we do something about it so the place doesn't get run down. Every year we do something to all the units to keep the standards up based on guest feedback. Unfortunately I think just about every hotel has at least some street front apartments, not much we can do, but as you say, when night comes there is not much noise at all. Just remember everyone, if you book any hotel, BOOK DIRECT AND SAVE!!. Booking though third party websites costs you extra, with us its around 15-20% more you pay. These third party website have to earn a living, this is through commissions the guest pay to use them for booking a room.

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.

Hi do all the apartments have their own bathroom? I read on the website its shared bathroom. What does this mean? Thanks
Hi there. Yes each apartment has its own bathroom which your own family shares. Inside the bathroom is your own washing machine and dryer as well.
