The comfort and views
Not much to dislike
comfortable beds great carpark has a washing machine and dryer in room. new kitchen.
air conditioner has a switch to have it on in the lounge room or in the bedrooms not both. Needs Maintenance Furniture was a bit out dated but comfortable. photos weren't the same as what you get.
Friendliness of staff Sea view from balcony The pool and jacuzzi Well equipped kitchen and laundry
A lovely unit but outdated and not worth $200 a night. A great view.
The leaking toilet and the misleading price advertised on booking.com. Right next to hospital and a bit far from town.
Friendliness of reception staff Pool was good Rooms clean and well equipped
wifi at a charge.
We loved the pool and spa, we had the best view of ocean. Loved having 2 bathrooms and we even had a spa bath in one.
location was great. We had privacy. They have nice surroundings, pool, the sound of running water into the pond. Ocean views. Undercover parking and visitor parking available. Wheel chair friendly +
Attention needed to general maintenance and repairs.
Was spacious, clean and comfortable.
Everything. very polite and helpful staff, the accommodation was generous in size and well equipt with everything you would need, for us this accommodation was well apointed outside the main hub of Cairns but within easy walk of all shops, restaurants the harbour etc.
there was nothing to dislike
good location near great barrier wharf(1.5km). sea view. good security with key control lift. two bathroom and good kitchen equipment. nice staff
receipt off hour a little early at 6pm. didn't meet them everyday after back from day trip. but it is ok.
Location , cleanliness , pool spa sauna and staff was so obliging .
Spacious apartment, great location, manager was very helpful to our enquiries, took the SilverSwift out to the outer reef and had a great day! Enjoyed our stay in Cairns.
We like to self cater but the pots and pans were of very poor quality, otherwise the kitchen suited our needs (e.g. pan warped over heat). Master bedroom shower over the spa was "hopeless" according my husband - water went everywhere.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was very spacious and well equipped for cooking.
The furniture and decor is dated and in need of updating, particularly the couch and beds. The location is a pleasant 20min walk from the CBD which is ok as long as the weather is good.
Quite and good location, clean surrounds
Staff was friendly.
Location too far from the main tourist area. Unit right next it hospital. Very limited view. TV reception poor.
Views, space, facilities
Internet access, while available, required a three month committment and commensurate payment. For a two week stay this was unreasonable and the cost was excessive to the extent we didn't bother. An unfortunate downside as all else was excellent.
Rooms were spacious
Our room had limited view of the ocean as the hospital had extended. I had specifically inquired after I booked whether we had a view as we were going to be working in the rooms all day for 3 days and thought the view would help our work. However it was very limited and we still had to pay the same price as those with full views. This should be made clear on booking that not all rooms have a full view, prices should vary based on this as well. Thank you. marg
It was spacious,had everything you needed,great value for money,Highly reccommended.
Nice and big, very comfortable rooms. Easy access to the centre of town.
Hair dryers are old with not much airflow (takes ages to dry hair).
The resident manager listened to my complaint about wrong room being advertised but could not change it - even though I booked it on 2nd May and it is now 13 August.However because of medical emergency I booked another room for other family members directly from 181 office - this was the one advertised on your website and was excellent! The manager, Ashley, was sympathetic to our needs and tried his best to help us out. However, Duty Manager, Brad , is quite inflexible - perhaps because he cannot make the big decisions - but he is in need of training in customer relations.
I made this booking from photos on your website that showed a bedroom with sea views and also from the lounge. However this is not the room that we were given. Our bedroom looked straight into hospital wards so kept curtains closed for patients' privacy and ours. Lounge room view between walls of hospital and 181 had a sea view. On arrival kitchen floor was greasy but staff cleaned it promptly when requested - would have mopped it myself but squeegee had no sponge. Probably greasy because exhaust fan over stove does not work.
Location, facilities and value for money
Curtains in main bedroom not block out
None of it
Dirty and insufficient linen Meagrely with dish liquid and washing powder I had to wash the doona covers they were disgusting The person below was a chain smoker which permeated our rooms the windows didn't open or close easily The manager didn't dare about the smoker and wasn't interested in doing something about Not a pleasant stay at all will be telling everyone not to stay there
181 met all my expectations. its always hard to know exactly what you are getting when you book online, but 181 ticked all boxes. Close proximity to waterfront restaurants and the city. Shuttle bus pick up to and from airport, organised at airport, $10 per person. Spotlessly clean fully serviced two bedroom apartment. Friendly approachable staff who organised our day trips. Provided parking for our camper trailer.
That I could not stay longer.
