“Fabulous hosts”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Very pleased with this hotel. I will come back to this hotel if I return to Australia. The only downside is there are no attractions right near by this hotel, at least a 20 min walk. A cab can easily be called and be there within minutes however. We arrived at 10pm and a closed front desk. Much to our surprise however, a letter with our room key was waiting for us. The 2 bedroom apartment was huge, clean, full kitchen, and washer/dryer unit. The provided dish soap and laundry detergent. The hosts were incredibly nice and helpful. They provided advice and booked our events with no extra fees. Very kind, very generous, very clean. Unless location is extremely important to you, this is the place to stay!

We spent 5 nights here and it is a great place. Alan and Ruth are friendly helpful and very knowledgeable about the area.

The apartment is large with the added bonus of a small utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

There is off street parking in the complex which is secure at night. Unfortunately there is no lift to the second floor but not a great issue.

Very quiet and relaxing place about a 15-20 minute walk to town centre.
There is a small 24 hour convenience store just around corner with a good selection of goods for self catering.

Would definitely stay here again.

We selected this accommodation after careful research. As we are on a two month tour of Australia washing facilities are a priority for us.

Apartment – This was a large apartment by most standards. It comprised a lounge area running through to a kitchen/dinette. There was a spacious balcony off the lounge section with a table and chairs.
The bedroom was well proportioned with cupboard space and a comfortable bed.

The bathroom was smaller when compared with the other rooms but was adequate. Off the bathroom was a small washroom with a washing machine and dryer.

There is adequate air-conditioning throughout.

Noise – There was no noise at all during my 5 day stay.

Reception (checking in and out) – The reception area doubles up as an office with a lot of tourist literature. The check-in procedures were fine and excellent advice was offered by the owners.

Apartment Location – Our apartment was on the upper floor and there is no lift unfortunately.

Complex Location – The complex is about a 20 minute walk out of the CBD.

Car-Park – There is a small car-park at the side of the complex. Being within the boundary it is secured and under cover. It is adequate for the number of apartments.

Misc – There is a vending machine within the complex with a good selection of cold drinks and snacks.

There is a small pool at the front of the complex.

All the equipment within the apartment functioned well.

Finally – Yes I would book this apartment again and can thoroughly recommend it to others.

I have added a few photographs.

Clean, spacious, comfortable apartment overlooking beautifully landscaped pool. Great value for money. Hosts Ruth and Alan made our very late arrival easy, with a friendly e-mail giving directions, and our apartment was ready for us with everything we could want. Ruth and Andy were helpful and friendly, recommending various trips and areas of interest in and around Northern Queensland. They even helped us to book accommodation for our stay in Palm Cove and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We appreciated our stay at Koala Court so much, that after our tour north, we booked there again for our last 4 nights in Cairns.

Although it was quite a walk to the pier and the CBD, we had a rental car so it was no problem to get around. However there are a range of shops, takeaways and restaurants just a block away which was very convenient for guests who did not have transport.

We would have no hesitation in staying at Koala Court Holiday Apartments again and thank Ruth and Andy for helping to make our stay so memorable.

Not an ideal location (a little over a mile walk to the Esplanade or wharf), but the owners are nice and very helpful. Our apartment was quite spacious, and you can book your travel excursions right there with them! We enjoyed ourselves and the apartment. Less than $20 cab ride from the airport!

I think this place is great value in a central location. The rooms are large. I have stayed many times over the years and always happy. Quiet, clean, and a short walk to the esplanade. I recommend it.

Value for money

Welcoming staff who will do all they can to make your stay ... our stay was broken with a 3 day reef dive trip and bags not required were stored for no additional cost ... These were placed into our room upon our return

Distance from CBD was a good walk
