Reef Palms Cairns Reviews
Friendly and clean motel Oct 06, 2010
We were staying 4 nights in Motel Reef Palms. Situated in a tropical garden in an residential area of Cairns. It takes a 30 minutes walk to get to the city centre (by the Esplanade, walking away from the centre it gets very quiet, I wouldn’t feel comfortable on my own at night).
The nearest restaurants are about 8 to 10 minutes walking. As is a supermarket. An ATM is about 5 minutes walking.
Very friendly staff who can give a lot of information about excursions etcetera. Reception is closing at 9.00 pm, earlier on Saturdays. Computer at the reception (internet AU $ 2,20 half an hour, don’t remember the price for wifi, it is available!).
The rooms are self contained apartments. Very clean, well equipped. The interior and bathroom (hairdryer is provided) somewhat fashioned. A/c. Kitchen with coffee and tea maker, fridge, toaster, microwave. Television. A terrace (my room was located at the ground floor) with two chairs.
Ample parking, laundry (operating on coins), a small pool. No elevator. No restaurant. Breakfast (room service) available. At the reception a machine with soft drinks and some snack food.
One remark: the light above the sink in the bathroom was not working. I reported that on the day of arrival (Wednesday). ‘Later in the week an electrician will work on it’. As we left on Sunday the light was still not working.
