“Great Place to stay in Carins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2006

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid March. Arrived to a very wet and windy Cairns in the early hours of the morning and made our way to the apartments. As we arrived at 5.30am we were not able to check in as reception didn't open until 7am, though I supose we should have informed them of our early arrival in person rather than by e-mail. However security were able to store our bags and were very helpful offering tea etc.

When we got checked at in 10am we were thrilled to see the room which we had been provided with. It was a one bedroom apartment with a large balcony overlooking the pool and out towards the sea. Yes there was a bit of building work going on next door but this did not disturb us at any time and only slightly impacted on the view. There was a kitchen area with all utensils you could require, a washer and dryer in the bathroom and one of the most powerful showers I have ever experienced.

Reception were extremely helpful during our short stay especially when it came to recommending trips and tours etc and will even make the bookings for you. Took a great trip into the rainforest to Kuranda village on the skyrail. This is a cable car ride to the top of a mountain over the rainforest - spectacular views even through the mist and clouds. You can then return via a scenic railway.

I spent 2 nights at the Breakfree Trilogy (renamed from Mantra)and managed to get a very reasonable rate of AUD109 nett per night for a hotel room at the Trilogy. At first glance, it looks like a very large apartment complex, with 2 other planned building phases still in progress. It appears relatively new and is situated right in the heart of the Esplanade, which made walking around for meals, shopping and to the swimming lagoon very convenient.

Check-in was a breeze even though I had arrived late at night and special mention to be given to Malcolm from the front-desk who was extremely friendly and helpful with travel tips and making a guest like me feel valued.

The room was relatively new and spacious, with a balcony overlooking the Esplanade which was a true bonus waking up in the morning to see the landscape. Secured free parking was also made available for all guests throughout the stay.

Definitely a must-stay when considering accomodation in the city centre.

I stayed in a twin hotel room here. This property apparently only opened recently and everything still looks nice and new. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well. The location is great - just a block or so from the shops and restaurants on the Esplanade. Staff was friendly and helpful. Was a good value for what I paid.
