Hubby and I booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 11 days as we were in Cairns for study. We arrived just after 6pm and thankfully reception was still open. Karen seems like a lovely lady. She was very friendly and helpful and obliged whenever we had any questions. The room was decent enough for our stay, but isn't exactly what... More

Restaurant choice is limited, but the boat... More

Location and view were lovely but the cleanliness left an awful lot to be desired. It was obvious that this apartment had not been cleaned properly for many years. As a result we felt reluctant to touch or use anything. When we complained a token clean was provided but the end result was still a very unclean and unacceptable dirty... More

If you want to be by the beach these are the apartments for you, in a quiet location with facilities and places to eat or get a take away. The apartments were clean and neat and in my opinion almost four star....cutlery and crockery did not match, fridge and cooker were a bit old but all in working order. Nothing... More

Stayed on ground floor appt for 2 nights with family. Hostess very accomodating, unit clean and inviting. Swimming pool was a little cool, but didn't stop my son from getting in. Was nice to have a patrolled beach just across the road. Very quiet both day and night.

While nothing major was wrong this is not a four star motel and all the little things just added up to leave us less then impressed Check in was friendly and I do not remember ever actually getting escorted to a room before...

We went to Yorkey’s Knob for 5 days to see the eclipse in November 2012. The apartment exceeded our expectations and came fully equipped for self-catering. All balconies faced the sea which was a short walk over a quiet road. What set The York apart for us was Karen the hostess, who helped us out considerably, including looking after our... More
