We've been to this Apartment complex now three times in the past three years, and it just seems to get better each time. The managers - Pam and Russ Elliott - take a professional, friendly and oh-so-helpful approach to their dealings with their clientele, which may explain why they have so many return guests. We had a two-bedroom apartment which was spotless, well-appointed, spacious and enjoying a large balcony overlooking the pool. The air-conditioning, even in winter, was welcome. But you go to this apartment complex mainly because of its great location and value-for-money. First, the location. It's not in the heart of the Cairns CBD but an easy 10-15 minute level-ground stroll away. It is directly opposite the huge, brand new, Cairns Hospital, so it's also in a quiet part of town, and, at the back, looking out over a giant green swathe of playing fields and trees. There's a convenience store and also a restaurant (Indonesian cuisine) on the right-hand corner diagonally opposite the main entrance and, at the rear entrance, the celebrated Cock & Bull Pub and great-value Restaurant on the next right hand corner diagonally up the road, and 50 metres distant. The local transport is 50 metres away in the next street and Russ or Pam will gladly arrange taxis and tours. We'd previously stayed in a number of hotels and other apartment buildings but would now not consider going anywhere else while in Cairns. The self-contained apartments at Reef Gateway have all the facilities and inclusions you'll need for a satisfying and supremenly comforatable stay in Cairns.
