I booked it as a solo traveler and so the rate was ok, but also not very cheap as I paid 70 Dollars for a room that would fit 4 people. So, as a group or family, this is of great value in Cairns! Cleanliness, fitness equipment facilities: great! Friendliness of the staff: Perfect! As I was arriving late, they...

Clean and utilitarian. Really handy for netball players (facility next door) While this is in Cairns, it's not immediate walking distance to the central Cairns so that could be a downer for some. It's an easy trip with a skate board or a scooter. It's more motel like and would be good for a stopover.

This place is a bit outside of town but a perfect place if you just need a place to keep your luggage during the day and to sleep during the night. The room has kitchen facilities so you can make your own food. Good beds and both fan and air condition. But they make some noise. The owners are very...

Great little place. Aaron and staff were very accommodating. Nothing was too hard. The rooms were clean and secure. It was great to meet the international students staying there. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Stayed here with some friends over the long weekend, was pleasantly surprised. It had everything we needed at a very affordable price. The family rooms were massive and handy to everything. There was a BBQ, games room, volley beach court, and a cold pool to beat the hot day. The rooms have been renovated as everything looked newish. The managers...

Booked 2 rooms and was advised there would be light breakfast included. We turned up to the breakfast hall only to be humiliated by the owner and told our deal didn't include breakfast he was rude,arrogant and acted like a massive jerk. We will be checking out today. The hotel is like a school camp and room is like a...

Sorry to here about your experience at TLM. As you may not be aware we have been providing clean,secure affordable accommodation packages to various students (overseas,local,interstate) and school groups for over 83 years whom often are on tight budgets and don`t regularly see the odd family traveler whom think they can just help themselves to breakfast buffet.
