Stayed here after 2 weeks of travelling up the east coast staying in tents, boats and hostels so an apt was a bit of a luxury. Stayed in a one bed room overlooking the pool, room was nice, had good kitchen facilities and was clean and we had no complaints. No lift which is a pain for bringing your luggage... More

Only good thing about this apartment was the location and that's where it ends. It is right next door to a shopping centre which was good to go & buy the coffee , sugar etc as they don't service the rooms. We had the studio apartment on the 3rd floor which is ok to walk up & down but not... More

Pros: Next to shopping centre so great location. A few blocks walk away from the main shops/ esplanade. Close enough to walk everywhere. Good if you are only using this place to sleep etc. Security is good. Gates close and have automatic opening. Reasonably quiet between 9.30pm-7am. Cons: Place echoes badly. You can hear your neighbours speak due to the... More

The room was so small we couldn't fit 2 adults and 1 toddler. More than half the rooms are over the car park and the others have train line behind them!! The pools are not kid friendly like the net would have you think.!!!! I have never complained before and this is a first for me,(to do this online) we... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments. We were pleasantly surprised at how central they were. We had a ground floor family unit near the train line. The trains don't go past very often so we weren't bothered. The apartments were clean, but a bit tired. They could do with a bit of a paint job, and... More

Poor service, deceptive in how units are set up, if you are a family with kids as we were don't stay here because your kids end up with own apartment as they are all one bedroom dual key. Superior rooms need rangehoods in kitchens, fans in bathrooms and better cooking utensils. Overall unhappy with accommodation.

We spent 7 nights at the apartments the were quite clear that these were self contained apartments, which suited us fine. But maybe consider every two days a towel change, as we stayed longer we got one towel and linen change. The room was to a good standard, clean and well presented, we were happy to discover that we were... More

Just returned from 7 nights in beautiful Cairns staying at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments. Found the rooms (we stayed in a one bedroom superior) to be great- well equipped kitchen, loved the open out balcony, great air con and ceiling fans, nice big shower, clean and fresh feeling linen, swivel TV is a great idea so you can watch...

We stayed for 4 days here after having stayed 4 days in Port Douglas. No one was helpful or nice to deal with. We were paying $35 for internet, when I asked for help with it they said it was just our room, so why let us get it. There is no lift and the stairs were hard with suitcases... More

I accidently booked this accommodation online. Big mistake. Apartment cost $165 per night, and was not as good as other apartments I have stayed in for about $135 per night. There was no separate bedroom and loung room, the airconditioner was very noisy, and the hot water system gurgled and banged all night. Tea and coffe is only provided for... More
