“An amazing honeymoon stay”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

This was an amazing stay. We had a harbour view room which had been upgraded from a studio apartment to a one bed apartment. The apartment was incredibly spacious and the views were superb. We loved the location being close to all the ferry connections and a short walk to the lovely restaurants and bars on the harbour. Check in and out was simple as many others have said and the office was open till 8pm so we could pop in whenever we needed to. We booked many good trips with the office and we would like to thank Patrick for his support with the booking of those trips and other advice through our stay. Both the trips and the lovely room really made our stay. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Cairns.

Thank you,
Lisa and Andy.

We had a 2 night stay in a studio room. A very clean and modern room. Adequately equipped with a fridge, tea and coffee, crockery and cutlery. A couple of wine glasses would have been nice but no matter. The harbour views spectacular. Clean towels and bed made on day 2. Check in at tourist info was no problem and the lovely Lisa was more than helpful. It was a great price for the location and we highly recommend.

The reviews about the inconvenience of the office not being in the building are ridiculous. Even arriving at 10pm, Lisa met us infront of the Harbourlights Complex and gave us a quick and easy pep talk about what we might expect from our stay. And then we saw the room... which was a 1-br unit which looked out onto the ferry terminal. The sun streamed in the next morning welcoming us to Cairns... bliss!
I consider myself an independent traveller, one that dislikes the over-priced pretentiousness of hotels... but I am getting older and no longer wish to stay in hostels. This couldn't be a more perfect option for my partner and I as it was not located near the busy esplanade, but not far away from it. We will be returning...

Room Tip: The building is designed like a V , and our room was almost at the end of the right side near the fe...

We stayed for a week and had a comfortable time. Read a lot of reviews about how the check in was confusing but we were provided with plenty of information and found it very easy! The room was clean (Studio with Garden View) and big enough with free wifi. Overall, an easy stay rather than the formality of a hotel, plenty of restaurants on the Esplanade underneath. The staff in Reef Info (where you check in) are helpful and were always available - we didnt, but you can book tours etc with them too. There is a convience store next door but also a large Wooldworths 5 minutes walk away. A pleasant stay

We stayed in a 1bedroom garden view apartment for 4 nights earlier this month. It was a great value for money.The apartment was neat and comfortable with all the facilities you would need. The staff were located in a visitor information centre across the street and were very helpful in finding tours and renting a car for us. Best of all was the location of these apartments. It's right on the harbour that apart from it's fantastic views is where the cruises leave from. It's a few minutes walk to Cairns esplanade and the lagoon. There's a big barbecue area with great views on level 4 next to a well-equipped fitness centre and swimming pool. We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment and will stay here again.

Stayed at this beautiful apartment for our 5 year anniversary a month ago. It all started with the most helpful and kind staff at check in. The best I have had in a long time. First impressions count with me and I knew it was going to be fantastic from that moment. We arrived to a clean roomy apartment with the best views I think Cairns has to offer. We enjoyed the self-contained equipment, but also celebrated at a near by restaurant, which was just a minute away. Enjoying a few glasses of wine on the balcony watching the boats come in will be in my memories for a long time. We can not wait to come back. See you soon.

We recently stayed with the Cairns Luxury Apartments during my holiday in Cairns for 5 nights. We had the most wonderful stay, and would definately stay here again if we come to Cairns.
It had a beautiful view from our balcony, and we enjoyed watching the boats come and go from the marina which was right in front of us.
The apartment was roomy and had a contemporary feel about it. We had everything we needed to prepare meals in the fully equiped kitchen. Loved having 2 bathrooms and a bath also.
The location was perfect, everything is close by and walking distance from the complex.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and greeted us by name when we came into the reception. This was located a short distance from the complex, but it was clearly described in our confirmation email where we had to go to check in.
It was great that we could book our tours in the same place as where we checked in.
All in all we had a great time and the only drawback was we had to leave!

Room Tip: Book a harbourview room, its definately worth it. Best location in Cairns.
