I stayed at the Best Western Central Plaza Apartments, Cairns, Queensland, Austraila for two nights in September. I booked the reservation using the Best Western website. I have always found Best Westerns to be superb hotels when traveling internationally so I really assumed my stay at this property would be fine. What I encountered was quite a shock. To start...

My husband and I stayed here in August. We had a good one bedroom apartment on the second floor (unfortunately no lift). Really nice apartment with a little balcony but a couple of streets back from the sea and a view of only buildings (particularly of the hospital across the road). Spacious sitting room and good kitchen facilities including large... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 8 days. The room was spacious, self contained with a balcony to enjoy the morning sun. Bit of a confusion upon arrival as to which room to go to, the apartment was not serviced during our entire stay. When asked if we could get one, we were told that service was weekly... More

We had a small studio room for one night prior to a dive trip. The room was very clean and comfortable, if a little small. We had a balcony with a small table and chairs, but this overlooked the shopping mall and a main road. The mall had rooftop air conditioning units and the noise was terrible when the doors... More

The location was perfect for us. The room was very clean. A clothes-drying rack was provided for our use. Although we didn't use the service, we liked that information was provided about a local restaurant meal delivery service. The WIFI was easy to connect to, and provided an adequate amount of MB for our needs. The only negative we had... More

Our apartment was spacious & spotlessly clean. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had booked such a comfortable room. There was an air-conditioner in both the living room & bedroom so our apartment was cool around the clock. Kitchen facilities excellent & nice to have a little balcony overlooking the garden. Large bathroom. Good in-room laundry facilities. The décor... More

What an atrocious experience. I booked for 2 adults and a baby. My daughter flew in to cairns around 11pm. The owner would not let her in despite the booking was in her name and made her stand outside and call me (the grandmother of the baby) to get the baby out of bed and come downstairs to let her...
