QCWA Holiday Units
Ranked #60 of 83 Speciality Lodging in Cairns
Reviewed 16 January 2017

Good value in spacious unit 1 for our family of four. Friendly management who were really helpful. Full kitchen for those who need self-catering. No pool but walking distance to Esplanade, muddies, lagoon and restaurants. Free wifi and tv was enjoyed by our tweenies. Free parking. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for Unit one - biggest unit.

My husband and I have stayed there on 3 occasions over the past few years. While it is very comfortable to us there are better prices for apartments closer to the CBD.

There most definitely is NO swimming pool which is a shame but when you see the layout out the units, there's no where to put a pool. The walk into Cairns CBD takes approximately half an hour but as we are walkers that hasn't deterred us from staying there.

The units themselves are great, 2 bedrooms, fully self contained and furnished, along with clean linen provided. They are all 2 bedrooms but if there are only two of you then you pay $90.00pn for two. If four of you and you utilise the second bedroom then it's $110.00pn. For the same dollar value closer to the CBD (Central Business District) you can have a two bedroom apartment fully self contained with swimming pools and much closer to the beach and shopping.

The QCWA was first started to help people to have a reasonable priced holiday but as they are on the same page as most of the other apartments in Cairns price wise and Cairns is hot and we don't wish to swim in the ocean, the apartments with the pools will win every time with us.

I have put that we were there in November 2015 because there isn't a later date and this field is required. In fact we haven't been there for 3 years.

The management is great, very helpful and obliging.

Very disappointed unit very small not worth $1090 paid no pool & no view.
Was supposed to be 3 star.
Expensive charges to use washing machines.
Better value elsewhere.
Would have expected a lot better from CWA.

Mum and I have just spent 3 nights at CWA Holiday Units and we really enjoyed our stay! Loretta was very helpful and obliging and made our arrival out of office hours a very positive experience! The unit had 2 bedrooms, was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable, had a new full size fridge, microwave and all the cooking facilities you need for self-catering. The unit is very suitable for elderly people! Ideal location for all the sights. Walking distance to the esplanade for a nice walk! We highly recommend these units as a great, safe place to stay at a very reasonable cost! Please note no swimming pool as one of the photos suggests.
