We stayed at 181 for 8 nights whilst on a family visit / holiday in Cairns. The property is located next door to the Cairns Hospital. We had a one bedroom apartment (actually a 2BR 2Bath apartment with the 2nd BR and 2nd Bath locked off). We had never stayed at this property before, but we were very pleased with our very spacious and clean 7th floor apartment. Both balconies featured beautiful views of the famous Cairns Esplanade which, BTW, we walked daily. We did not utilise the hotel's tour booking facility but going by the regular queues of guests who did, it is apparent that the staff are well versed in the facility. The bed was very comfortable, and the well appointed bathroom was a dream. There is a tavern and a small shopping centre within 5 mins walk. We had no qualms about walking along the Esplanade to town, but some guests may think it is just a little too far. Our only suggestion would be to install a table and chairs to the bedroom balcony. Comparable water view apartments at Trinity and Palm Cove were $100 p/n more expensive. We will definitely stay at 181 again. Recommended.
