Great room. Great price. Very nice pools and bbq. Only negative is the kitchenette. No exhaust fan and may tricker the fire alarm but rest was amazing and comfortable. Great and easy after hours check-in. Location is very good and easy to walk to the esplanade of cairns and shops

The carpets were filthy, to the point that the kids and babies playing on the floor had black dirt marks on their legs and hands. The pool was good, if you want towels for the pool you will need to go to reception for them. The BBQ area is great. Good location.

We stayed at this place for 3 nights. The apartments were clean and had all the facilities one would need when traveling with children. Pools were nice and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very close to a supermarket , which is an added advantage.

We paid for a garden view room, the walls were paper thin, the pillows were flat and we were deeply disappointed. It seems other patrons were equally disappointed, at check-in we were in front of people complaining, and at checkout a gentleman decided to leave 2 days early...perhaps we should have followed him.

The trouble started when trying to book accommodation with the Southern Cross Appartments. I should have walked away then. It took over an hour to check in. Payment is difficult unless you have a Credit card. Visa debit cards are too much hassle and they are not very accommodating. They will try and take more money from you where ever...

These apartments are in a large complex. There are about 4-5 buildings with 3 floors. The one bedroom apartment we stayed in was spacious however it is dated and the furniture has seen better days in some cases. The pools are nice along with the large balcony with plenty of room. The bathroom is massive and includes a washer but...

This apartment complex is away from the hustle and bustle of Cairns city centre, yet still within walking distance of popular attractions like the boardwalk, lagoon and night markets. Our check in experience was average (a bit of a wait to be assisted by the sole receptionist who was visibly weary) but our room was great - cool, clean and...

Myself and 3 friends stayed here as an end of school trip. The room was very strange as we originally booked a 2 bedroom apartment. We were surprised to find we had 2 joined 1 bedroom rooms. But it worked out okay as we had 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, 2 living rooms and 3 decks. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Good...
