Cairns Reef Apartment & Motel
Ranked #47 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 16 September 2008

If you have a car, this is the perfect place to stay. It will save you a heap of money and it really doesn't lack anything. There are plenty of restaraunts nearby and both a pub and a McDonald's in walking distance. My room opened up to a small yard where you can smoke a cigarette or have a beer if you want, or you can just watch the birds. The owners were really nice and went out of their way to help. I left an item behind and they took care of it for me until I could get back.

If you want a fancy hotel, this isn't it, but if you want everything you need for comfort and quality in Cairns, this is the sweet spot. I'd go there again for sure.

We had an 8-night Stay in Cairns Reef Apartment in Dec 2008 and were hosted by Jaime and Liz Thompson, who are New Zealanders. Believe me, they will take care of everything for you.

For a start, they have a tie-up with a car rental company and we got fantastic rates. The room is also very clean, spacious and quiet and it comes with a bath tub too.

However, nothing beats the friendliness of the hosts who painstakingly helped us plan and book our daily itinerary at no commision. They would also help us map out our driving trails (water-fall circuit etc.....)

I would strongly recommend everyone to stay here if you are visiting Cairns.

We stay here every year for two weeks in May/June. It is clean and the owners are very friendly, it is reasonably priced and the pool is cleaned daily. Very close to a small shopping centre and the bus stops outside the main entrance to go to Cairns city centre. Free movies on the TV and comfortable beds. It has all you need.
