I really wish I'd read all the negative reviews before choosing this place. The rooms are old and in need of refurbishment. The beds are very uncomfortable. We couldn't get not even a night of decent sleep. The air conditioning is old and not cooling properly. The manager is very unpleasant and rude. It's almost like he tries on purpose... More

Looked forward to this stay in the prior three weeks of traveling. Unit was a one-bedroom apartment with cooking and laundry appliances. Unit was clean and comfortable. The “but” regards the WiFi hassle. Description on Hotels.com states free WiFi, but in reality it is very limited. One, yes one, device gets 200 MB per 24 hours. We were two adults... More

We chose this hotel for its location. It is a good size and as an apartment has most things required but is not fully equipped. We were advised to cook with the door open or the smoke alarm would go off. We were advised not to run the air con below 23 or the aircon would turn off. The apartments... More

We recently stayed 4 nights at Villa Vaucluse Apartments. These apartments are located 2 blocks from the heart of Cairns, great location, just a walk to the esplanade, night life and shops. The rooms are very clean and spacious, with everything you need. We found booking attractions easy with the kind and helpful assistance of management, they are only too... More

Nestled in a quiet area just a short 2 to 5 minute walk from all that Cairns city has to offer, shops, pubs, beach Restaurants and more. On entry through a secure gate you walk into a beautiful indoor garden surrounded by villas. Our room had a balcony overlooking the pool and bbq area with a well maintained landscaped area,... More

Hotel has good facilities available. Good sized beedroom and living area. Only thing, had to cook with front door open so smoke detector wouldnt go off. Manager was very helpful suggesting tours to go on & booked them at hotel. Good location, centeral to everything, few minutes walk to shops & cafes.

The Villa Vaucluse was the perfect place to stay during my visit to Cairns. It was centrally located, so it was easy to walk to the Esplenade and to get to all other attractions. My room met my needs exactly, with a spacious living room and kitchen, ample bedroom and full bath included in the apartment. It also boasts a... More

We had a1 BR apartment. Good facilities, nice pool. Good for couples and small families. Brett the manager is very attentive and friendly. Good location on Grafton St. Central to the Cairns Plaza shopping centre and the esplanade where the waterfront action is. Would stay again as we liked the self catering.

Big apartment style rooms, with a kitchen, big living room and a standard bed room. This is not a typical hotel or serviced apartment - you need to do your own laundry (including towels, bedsheets etc) and take your own trash out (which was a new experience for us). However, the owner/manager was extremely helpful and helped us book all... More
