excellent position, helpful reception staff
kitchen in need of upgrade, lack of hangers in wardrobe
Close to everything
the position was perfect right in he centre of town
The location is great, overlooking the lagoon, close to the harbour, walking distance to the train station and bus terminal.
The smells of cooking from local kitchens.
Excellent location, helpful staff, great room. Not 24hr Reception, but we did not have any problems with late check-in and early departure.
Great location, great apartment (708) with great views. Only stayed for 3 nights but will definitely stay again on our next trip to cairns.
Air con does not travel through to bedroom area very well making for a warm night's sleep. Bed is right next to door so light and noise can be an issue.
Great location , comfortable apartment . Parking good.
The air conditioning was so loud it woke us frequently through the night & wasn't very effective. Unfortunately , as a result I would not return. Mould on shower curtain was yuk but understandable in climate. Reported to reception.
air-con no free wifi
The location of the unit and the outlook were great. The staff were excellent, and could not do enough for us.
The unit was a bit tired looking, and in need of an update. The lounge was the most uncomfortable lounge that I have ever sat on.
The location of this hotel is excellent! Right on the Cairns Esplanade, convenient to everything in town. Spent New Year's Eve here and enjoyed the fireworks display from our balcony. Great stay!
Well what a great location, great staff always so friendly.Had a awesome stay and will be back.
Spa bath , Kitchen, balcony and big living area. Great 180' ocean n mountain view!
Door don't have safety door stopper?? Like fook or door chain. Because bed was placed at infront of door.
Great room, right above night markets across the road from the esplanade pool. Friendly staff. Fully enjoyed our stay would recommend to anyone coming to cairns to stay here.
Fluro in bathroom was flickering, no dryer in room.
Location is great, room was clean.
Had to turn the air conditioner off as the smell coming from it was putrid. It also did not cool the room, it was cooler with the windows open which is saying something in Cairns humidity..Windows only open about three inches. The room we had was very dated and in desperate need of an upgrade.
Close to reef terminal, lagoon and the night market is just downstairs with lots of restaurants. Supermarket is 3mins walk. Comfy bed and easy accessible 2 entrances back and front. Reception offers tour services and staff are very friendly. Free beach towel provided and also free parking. Cable TV.
As it is located above the stretch of cafes and restaurants, a lot of cooking smoke travels up to our balcony which makes it not too nice to chill. Quite a bit of ants in the room esp kitchen area. Air con can't be adjusted, as it is centrally controlled I guess.
This place has 2 exits, one right onto the Esplanade and the other onto Abbot Street. The Esplanade has everything under the sun and night while Abbot St gets us closing to other shopping and tourist places. The location is perfect. There is a Gelato place night at its door which sells fantastic ice-cream equivalent treats.
I wish they didn't scare me about the $1030 fine if we somehow set off a false alarm due to whatever reason (steam from bathroom, cooking from microwave, etc...). There was some renovation (painting and water work) going on and we were clearly notified and didn't let that bother us.
Friendly, helpful welcome
View and location.
Small TV, no dishwasher and small bar fridge
The location and view.
Not peace and quiet and on several occasions we had painters coming and going into our room. The bed was right at the door so it was very noisy and no privacy if you had to answer door. The kitchen was very basic.
Location is very good being mid town opposite the lagoon and close to Casino and shops
Parking is limited and unless lucky enough to get one of the limited spots you will have to pay for parking. Wifi is expensive fit out is getting a bit tired but noticed they were painting inside and out while we were there so they are taking steps to refresh.
The location in town
The travel agent on the ground floor was intrusive Not the staff they were fine, just the small corridoor it left & the fact you had to interact each time you passed
Loved where it was. Very clean, exceptionally comfortable bed.
Arrived late and had to check in through a security person on the phone. At rear entrance and it was spooky for a single individual traveling alone.
Location above night markets and near restaurants , facilities, view. Great Air con,
This unit needs a bit of loving care to finish the repair to old damage on walls. and window sill in lounge
Excellent kitchen and bathroom. Very central, above the night market. No noise issues. Would recommend and use again.
We requested a garden view but what we got was a room that opened onto the garden and pool. Neither were used by other guests so this wasn't the problem it might have been. Dark bedroom.
