Staff, service and cleaniness”

Staff are friendly who provided good service. It is kept clean including bathroom and the toilets. This is not a party place. However, it has a pleasant swiming pool, two large kitchens and adequate space to socialise. In addition, it is just 2 minutes to the waterfront and centrally located close to the city area.

Absolutely perfect location ”

Initially booked 4 days here and ended up staying about 6 weeks in total! Cairns is a very special place and Caravellas was the perfect base to explore it from Special mention to Andre on Reception and the Bagus cafe next door where you’ll find very tasty Balinese food

Great stay for the price”

The room is clean with my own fridge which was a bonus for me despite being a backpacker where you usually have to share the fridge in the kitchen. No reception most of the time but it does show the phone number you must call for any questions. I found reception to be there from around 8:30am to 9:30am. On my last night i was advised by one of the guest that there will be reception more frequently. If reception is limited i advise that you get the phone number first when you arrive in case you have future questions or you need help (forgot key in room, lost key etc.)
