Is is the nature of the collapsed Cairns economy, or are people just this stupid?
Trip Advisor reviews on the Tradewinds hotel have, for YEARS, complained about collapsed beds, dirty linens, broken room furniture, and non-working televisions.
So what would possess Cairns residents to line-up and PAY for furnishings that mostly should have been on a trash heap? Or at the very least DONATED to worthy low-income people in the community?
If anyone has a list of the purchasers, we'd be happy to post it as a warning to others - don't stay over on any of THESE beds!
Sadly, the unhealthy state of this hotel documented in literally HUNDREDS of reviews are far more damaging to the tourism industry in Cairns than a few crocodiles. But the Cairns Council, who refuses to even implement a Restaurant Inspection and Grading System, has NO requirement for health inspections at local hotels. Our tourism industry is still running on 1960's rules - to the detriment of us all.
