We spent a week at The Atrium in August and like many other reviews here, found it very noisy. We were on the first floor overlooking the car park and while the view wasn't an issue, the buses, garbage trucks, local businesses and noise from other guests leaving early were. The noise from the room above seemed to amplify in... More

We bought a room deal online and when we got there found out our view wasn't of the pool or the garden, it was of the "Officeworks" loading bay and car park. The roller door rattled open at all times of the day starting at 7am and the rubbish skip was emptied very early in the morning. When I asked... More

We booked a 'superior room' which is basically a 1 bedroom apartment that comes complete with all the fittings in the kitchen including a dishwasher. The balcony has a lovely setting to sit out and enjoy the night air and just drink in the tropical atmosphere. The room was immaculately clean, and tbh, better than a lot of 5 star... More

I stayed at Southern Cross with my family who were visiting Australia, all in we needed three apartments. The pools are lovely and the kids had a ball going to a different one each day. The location worked for us as we didn't need to be in the very centre of everything but could get everywhere within a few minutes... More

Stayed in the apartments for a week with my Girlfriend. Good location, only about a ten minute walk from the Esplanade, and a 2 minute stroll from Cairns Central. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever, decent location, our studio apartment was clean & a reasonable size, with both the fan and air conditioning doing the job when required. Our apartment was at...

Stayed at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments from the 16/7 - 23/7 in a studio apartement with a pool view. Booked through webjet.com.au with a special earlybird rate. The apartment was clean, tidy and spacious. The kitchen was also well equipped. The staff were friendly and check in was easy. There were however, a few things that I didn't realise... More

The good: Our apartment at Southern Cross Atrium was reasonably priced, spacious and very comfortable. It's a bit out of the way, but downtown is still within easy walking distance. We were right next to the train track and heard the train go by a few times, but it was never an issue. The shopping mall right next door was... More

We stayed here after spending time in an absolutely delightful apartment at Port Douglas and I am afraid it fell well short of our expectations. We chose these apartments because of their location next to the Railway Station. Our room was on the second floor and lugging our luggage up quite steep stairs was not enjoyable. Then our room was...

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
