Great place to relax nice and central to everything. We will definitely make North Cove a must place to stay when next in Cairns. Can and will recommend North Cove to friends and family members. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable all our needs were well catered for, the underground parking was secure giving us peace of mind... More

We stayed here with our four kids over the Easter weekend. The location is great at the northern end of the Esplanade, minutes from the airport and several car hire companies. There is a public park in from of the complex with a great kids' playground which kept ours happy for over 2 hours! The apartment is well kitted out... More

I'm disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay at North Cove. Unit 5 has recently been refurnished so I am both saddened and confused by your statement of a worn appearance and damaged furniture. Any maintenance issues are seen to and acted upon in a timely manner, however it is very difficult to fix something if we are not... More

Nice place that offers ocean view and peace on mind.Definitely worth the money we paid,i would recommend it to others.The only thing that i would consider as a "down side" (if i can call it a down side) is the transportation.It's a bit far away from the CBD where all the cafes,restaurants and the lagoon are.It would be a lot...

Close to everything, Beautiful apartment. A good cleaning is definitely due. Change of furniture in the lounge area would be great! Minh is amazing, helped us book our tours and organised everything seamlessly. Great pricing as well.

North Cove Waterfront Suites provided the perfect location for our recent 4 night stay. At the northern end of the Esplanade it is quiet but allows access to the waterfront walk which takes you right along as far as the Marina and restaurant/bar area. We walked this a few times and really enjoyed the outlook. The unit we chose was... More

Apartment is spacious, great patio to play cards on in the evening and comfortable beds but we would still not recommend this hotel to other because of the cleanliness. Upon arrival, we found black hair in the bathroom, a pubic hair in the shower, a layer of dust on the bedside table so thick you could write your name in... More

Booked 6 months in advance. Kate was brilliant in arranging everything and making sure we received a really good deal for our 21 day stay. Apartment was excellent, very well maintained and with a breathtaking balcony view over the Coral Sea. All our tours were booked by Minh at a great price and he chose well ensuring we saw all...

ezcellent rooms, friendly neighbourhood, and most importantly, the receptionists were very kind and helpful. You will definitely get what you paid for. The only downside was that the hotel is a bit far from the CBD.
