We located this apartment accommodation on internet and the pictures and features of the apartment were as expected. Sometimes you don't know if the pictures are true likeness - in this case they were. In fact the apartments were bigger than I expected. I had an 2 bedroom apartment shared with family member and I had other family members in other split level 2 bedroom and they all were good condition. Two bathrooms - one ensuite. All apartment was clean and modern furniture. Location was fantastic and easy 5-10 min walk to Cairns city centre and Central Shopping/ Rail Centre - all flat walk. 2 Blocks from Esplanade. The staff were very friendly and always willing to chat and assist where possible. Pool facility and BBQ were good size and condition.
Apartment facilities were well stocked with logical items. Fans and Aircon worked well.
Maybe screens on windows and balcony could have been useful to keep open in evenings.
Bedroom side table lighted could have been better - no great lamps to be able read in bed!
Austar channels difficult to location but staff were helpful to assist. Even though backpackers just next door - I didn't hear anything in night time to disturb my sleep.

Room Tip: Good online website.

I found this site on trip advisor last year and based on its reviews I booked 4 rooms for a end of season cricket trip. We enjoyed the place so much that we booked again for this years trip.

The reason for booking was mainly based on cost, but we definitely got value for money as the rooms are clean and spacious plus they contain a full kitchen. The complex contains a very nice pool and spa, with BBQ facilities.

The accommodation is a comfortable 10 minute walk from city centre or a $7 cab ride.

The front desk service is also exceptional. They were very helpful in suggesting activities and then have no hesitation in booking them for you while also trying to get the price for you.

I recommend this place to those with families, couples or groups of people.

A wonderful three night stay with my partner and two friends. The apartment had everything, right down to the pool towels.

Great comfortable spot to spend 3 nights in Cairns. In great nick considering a cyclone passed by a couple of days earlier.

I had nothing organised on arrival, but we soon had a car hired for cheap plus a day out snorkeling thanks to the help of the staff! They are full of info and contacts and are very willing to help.

The pool/bbq area was also great for relaxing!
