We picked this hotel because we could walk everywhere. We did not have to get a taxi to go to the marina 3 days. We could walk across the street to the lagoon. The food store was 2 blocks away. Night markets downstairs. The concierge at the hotel was knowledgeable and very helpful. It was great to have kitchen to...

The location is unbeatable, close to everything. It might be hard to find a more central location i Cairns, close to shopping, Harbour, the fantastic Cairns pool and restaurants. (Select another place if you want more silence). You can easily live here without a car. The staff is friendly and helpful. They can also provide you with all sort of...

Excellent choice for a great view and easy access to Cairn's shopping, eating and Harbor. We were on the 7th floor in a 1 bedroom apartment which had a great view of the Harbor. Below and all around the hotel are shops and eateries meaning you didn't need a car.

The only place we ever stay in Cairns. The location couldn't be better, views amazing, apartment is spacious and well priced. The staff, particularly Meegan are the friendliest I have ever met, nothing is too much trouble. We will be back.

Apartment had a "refurb" but oven didn't work. Shower would flood the bathroom floor a shower door would solve this problem. The toilet was not secured to the floor properly and there was a loss of water seal on a daily basis resulting in an unpleasant smell. The TV was analogue and had only 3 channels to watch when it...

Great location, friendly staff. Could do with Foxtel though. Advertising states movies on demand and cable TV - don't think this is correct. Room was a little dated, nearly due for refurb. Would stay again.

Great view, good room, value for money over some comparable apartments near it which I've stayed at, close to everything, quiet. No clothes dryer which is a bit of a nuisance in a wet tropical environment.

The location of this hotel was exceptional, right in the center of everything, close to restaurants, shops and the waterfront. The staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly and the room was very clean and had all the amenities needed. We had a 'garden view' which looked down on the garden and pool but we could also see...
