We stayed at the Reef Gateway apartments for 4 nights from the 14th - 18th August. The room was exactly what we were hoping for, considering we had out 5 month old son on the journey with us. We were given a townhouse at the rear of the building, which was quiet & made getting everything to and from the car a breeze. The room was spacious & the bed was comfortable. Having a washing machine & dryer made our holiday that much easier with our baby. We were close enough to the esplanade to enjoy the nightlife, but far enough away to avoid the noise. The location was a perfect base for our travels and close to the Airport. The owners were very friendly, although, we were so busy enjoying the perfect Cairns weather, that we didn't have a chance to speak to them very much. I have taken 1 star off for just a couple of small things
1. Having a baby, it was very important to be able to use the bath, however, when we went to bath our baby on our 1st night, we realised the plugs provided didn't fit the bath tub, there were no replacement plugs in the room. (This was nothing a $3 plug from Woolworths didn't fix & we left it for the next people to enjoy).
2. There was rubbish left in the bathroom from the previous occupants, which while did not inconvenience us, is something you don't expect to see.
3. It wasn't warm enough to use Air Conditioning, but was warm enough to use the Pedestal fan provided, the only problem being, there was no practical power point to plug the fan into! Not keen on plugging it in directly next to our faces while we slept, we just went without. Possibly an extension cord would assist in the future
All up however, it was a fantastic place to stay & we will be back in the future!
