“A Winner.”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Our apartment was spacious & spotlessly clean. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had booked such a comfortable room. There was an air-conditioner in both the living room & bedroom so our apartment was cool around the clock. Kitchen facilities excellent & nice to have a little balcony overlooking the garden. Large bathroom. Good in-room laundry facilities. The décor is a little out-dated but everything is very well maintained. For the price we paid for our 1 bedroom apartment it was great value. Would stay again.
We found the management very helpful.

What an atrocious experience. I booked for 2 adults and a baby. My daughter flew in to cairns around 11pm. The owner would not let her in despite the booking was in her name and made her stand outside and call me (the grandmother of the baby) to get the baby out of bed and come downstairs to let her in, all the while the owner was standing at the counter refusing to give a second key. With a flat mobile phone my daughter had to walk the streets at night looking for a public phone. The owner would not even call upstairs.

It was all made worse by the disgusting smugness of her attitude.

Disgusting horrible owners. With no interest in providing nice accommodation.

Dont stay there.

Me and my friends stayed in a 2 bedroom self contained unit here. The rooms were good sized and very comfortable and the unit had good kitchenette facilities. The beds were excellent.

It has a good swimming pool which we spent a lot of time in and we made use of the nearby BBQ. The hotel is close to the foreshore walk into town, which takes takes about 15 minutes.

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful with advice about drives to do for day trips around the area and local fishing spots.

Overall, it's one of the better hotels we have stayed at and I give it my recommendation if you're travelling to Cairns.

We stayed in these apartments in February 2014 for 3 nights. The apartment was so well equiped with everything you could possible need nothing had been missed. We were located right next to the pool which was brilliant as it did get hot. It was a short walk to the Esplanade and close to shops if you decided to eat in.Would highly recommend these apartments especially for families.

Room Tip: Get one on the ground floor near the pool.

Close enough to walk to town (a pleasant 10 minutes )Large apartments with kitchens and a balcony .It was a bit noisy during the day with construction next door , that will be complete in december 2014 .The appt.s were quiet with the doors closed though . Air conditioning and ceiling fans ,A nice pool , parking undercover ,and clean !If you are on foot the supermarket in town has a better selection and prices, and buses 110,111,120,121,130,and 131 will get you home with your groceries .This is a good choice as a base for seeing the Cairns region .We found the managers very helpful and professional too, no problems at all .

My partner and I spent a couple of nights at Central Plaza Apartments and we enjoyed our stay. Our apartment was great and had everything we needed. The rooms were nice and clean and the bed was comfortable - so we got good sleep, which is what we were looking for.

We particularly enjoyed the nice pool and the BBQ facilities. We found the staff friendly and they suggested some things to see in Cairns. One of those was the foreshore walk, which is close-by.

We had a nice time and we would certainly come again.

We are regular visitors to Cairns and usually stay at a hotel and decided to try somewhere different and book a 1 Bedroom fully self-contained apartment. Best Western Central Plaza was a perfect choice. The apartment was the cleanest and most spacious apartment we have ever has the pleasure of staying in. The managers were extremely helpful and friendly and arranged all our tours and provided a discount on tours. A big thank you to you both for a memorable stay. We look forward to returning to Central Plaza on our next visit.
