Overview

A playful feeling permeates the design of the Aspect Central Motel. The saltwater pool mimics the outer reef. The motel building itself looks part childhood building blocks and part Alexander Calder sculpture. The Aspect offers a variety of accommodation styles. Room sizes range from single studios that make a comfortable temporary home for solo travelers to rooms that will accommodate groups up to six. The outdoor grill provides travelers with a relaxing place to take a break from the day's activities.

Rooms

Few hotels or motels offer as many room styles as the Aspect. Room sizes range from a studio single, perfect for the solo traveler, to a super double, which can sleep six. Larger rooms provide plenty of space for families traveling with kids. Rooms feature contemporary décor. No two rooms are designed exactly alike. All rooms feature high-speed wireless Internet access. Live wild orchids, ferns, and other native flora add a touch of the Australian outdoors to all suites.

Property features

Though the property sits a few blocks off the waterfront, the memories of it are easy to recall while lounging the saltwater pool. The pool's tiles, shells, waterfalls, and coral rock pay homage to the outer reef.

 

The on-site restaurant -- with options ranging from local seafood to dishes inspired by international cuisines -- is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu emphasizes Western-fusion dishes. For those who prefer to dine outside the hotel offers a lunchtime café with seating by the pool. Other on-property amenities include a coin-operated laundry room, baby-sitting service, and room service.

I stay here often and it's easily the best value in Cairns. There are plenty of restaurants/bars close by although it is a little far from downtown. The rooms are nice for the area, and the staff is always helpful.

Excellent Indian restaurant just off the lobby

Would recommend Wed, Jan 1, 2014
The hotel is located a nice walk from the dt are and the ocean. It gives you a location on the edge of all the business, which is nice if you want to take a break from all the people. They have a grill, hot plate, and cooking supplies, which can give you a much needed break from eating out at expensive places. Great Value!

It's just a great little hotel. Not terribly impressive from the outside, but the rooms are very nice, and you can't beat the price.

Hotel review

Would not recommend Sun, Mar 31, 2013
Our experience at the hotel was unfortunately highly depressive bordering on disastrous ! What we needed and were confirmed by agent was there will be two rooms , one with 2 single beds and another with 2 double beds (2+4). What we were offered was 2 rooms each with one single and one double bed (3+3). We requested that they relocate us to 2 rooms with [2p+4p] arrangement either in the same hotel or in a nearby unit, which the inexperienced and the only available receptionist was unable to do. The rooms were unattractive and dysfunctional, the phones were inoperative and remained so during the 2 night's stay in spite of repeated reminders. The AC in one room was inoperative the whole time. We were told no maintenance persons are available to help. The stoves in kitchenettes were old and rusted. The refrigerators were old and way past their useful life. The beds were on rollers and two of them were unrestrained on the floor and moved around each time one got in or out of them. There were no one on duty after 4 pm [we were told it was Easter week end hence no person or service would be available]. The stairs were exposed and steep and we had a real hard time in carrying suitcases upstairs. It was one of the worst accommodations that we ever had to live in.. We strongly urge you to visit the hotel immediately and downgrade and/or eliminate it from their recommended list. We were misled with its 4 Star rating. It can be a 2 Star hotel at best. Thanks, Bn Roy

Out of 73 countries, the smallest hotel room ever!

Would not recommend Sat, May 12, 2012
This room was so bad, at first I thought it was a hidden camera joke. The "studio" rooms are much smaller than the even the smallest cruise ship room. The single bed broke when I sat on it (and I am 80 kgs!). This room would be ideal for a garden gnome wanting to feel cozy. Unless the 'studio" rooms are an anomaly, I can't see how this property can even garner one star! The front office closes at 8 pm, so don' try to check in after hours.

Nice, Clean, Comfortable

Would recommend Mon, Nov 21, 2011
The room was clean. We had a dip in their pool which was nice after a hot, humid Cairns afternoon. They also had a mini fridge in the room, so if you had a drink or something, that was useful. Only complaint was the bunk beds were VERY squeaky. If anyone even turned their head, it made a loud noise. Other than that, it was a good place to stay.
