An okay place in Cairns
The rooms are quite large and there is a kitchen and lounge area. More like a small flat than a hotel room.
The location is a little out of town and takes 25 minutes to walk into the centre. This wouldn't have been so bad if the temperature had been so oppressively hot when I was there.

Coral Cay Villa or Plaza Palms Resort
Has anyone stayed in either one of these places? We're considering both of them for this November, and any experiences or opinions from fellow wanderers would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
Re: Coral Cay Villa or Plaza Palms Resort
Hi|! I have actually just come back from Cairns this week (although it will take a while to get some pics and info up on my VT site) I stayed at the Coral Cay Villas and found them to be quite confortable. They are now actually called the 'Cairns Queenslander' since the other motel at the back bought them out and combined the two places. It isn't the most central place but if you don't mind a 10-15 minute walk into town then it will be fine. As for rooms I would recommend that you ask for one in the 'Coral Cay' section (i.e what used to be the coral cay villas) as these seem to be a bit nicer and if you get a room at the back it is quiet as you are not facing the street and swimming pool.
The accommodation is motel-style and the cooking facilities are pretty much restricted to 2 hot-plates and a microwave but that was fine for my brother and I. If you are keen to eat-out there is a place about 2 blocks south down lake-street called 'Bay leaf' restaruant in the Bay Village Motel that does a great set-menu with top food for about $28. It doesn't have much view though....
I think I have rambled enough, if you want any more info on the Cairns Queenslander or Cairns itself shoot me off an email - have fun!!
