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.

The apartment was everything as advertised. We were most impressed by the helpful and friendly services by Kate and Minh. They booked our tours (and passed on the discounts to... More

They did everything possible to make out stay as enjoyable as possible and to make my job easier. The actuall apartments were fanastic, we... More

We stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on 2nd floor. The apartment was very spacious with all the amenities you could wish for and so close to the esplanade. Allocated secure undercover parking and the lift access made it very easy to come and go especially as we had our elderly mother sharing who finds stairs difficult.... More

We wished to stay 3 nights. Had a problem with arrival day and asked well ahead of the date to delay arrival by 1 day. Instead of having 3 nights the apartment was only available for 2. Apartment kitchen area was greasy - had not been well cleaned. Frying pan could not be cleaned enough to use. Main bedroom fan... More

A phone call from you was received prior to your arrival date. The discussion did not confirm the shift of dates, but was understood that you were shortening your stay by 1 day. This was not confirmed by email by either party. Our staff are often busy and we recommend any changes made by the guest to be submitted by... More

We had a fantastic time at North Cove. Great views from our top floor apartment. Apartment was nice and spacious and had everything we needed. You do get a bit of noise from planes coming and going at the airport.
