Originally booked in here via Booking.com for one week but enjoyed it so much we stayed for two ! These apartments are situated right opposite Cairns Hospital on Lake St. From the outside they look not very pretty but the apartments are spacious, clean and very well equipped. Our balcony faced onto Lake St overlooking the hospital but we never... More

Overall hotel has all of the required amenities , and close to CBD. Directly across the road from the hospital so good if you wanted somewhere near by. Undercover and reasonably secure parking , great for the one or two nights stay.

5mins from the Cairns airport, short walk to the city & esplanade, and very clean, spacious apartment-like rooms; what more could I ask for?! I stayed at the Best Western during my first visit to Australia and had a wonderful stay! The hotel is conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, airport, and even the hospital for those just-in-case scenarios ;) The... More

Very close to CBD and 1 block prom the waterfront. Spacious apartments close to restaurants, shopping and tourist activities, we had a second floor apartment with a small balcony, yes it does overlook buildings as per another review but it's refreshing to have a drink and relax on. Parking is secure under building and it has a nice pool, not... More

We stayed in October for 1 night. The hotel is perfectly located only a short walk from the esplanade and directly across from the shopping centre. Our 1 bedroom apartment was wonderful - amazing views of the water. The staff were very helpful and wonderful to deal with. We wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely make this... More

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
