We stay there for 4 days and enjoyed. Location is very good, just in front of Lake. Customer Service was good, Get good tips from trip advisers at the reception. Also get discounted coupon and arrangement for the cruise to Great Barrier Reef.

Our 3 room suite was perfect for us all. Great views, very comfortable for our 10 day stay. Would definitely stay again on our next trip to Cairns. Exactly 3 kilometre run along the Esplanade to the Marina and 3 beautiful klm back. Planes taking off made it noisy at 6am but as we are early risers it did not... More

Had a great week in Cairns. Accommodation was excellent although at the top end of The Esplanade, taking approximately 25 minutes to walk to restaurants and shops. Office staff were really helpful and I was able to book all tours from there.

The waterfront here is very attractive but of course you can't swim there, because of crocodiles! There is nice walk along the foreshore into the city complemented by exercise equipment and picnic facilities along the way. The North Cove has a nice pool you can swim in though, and a garden and BBQ to enjoy outdoors. Our apartment had lovely... More

North Cove Waterfront Suite is less than a 30 minute walk alongside the Esplanade located away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre overlooking the ocean. The paved walkway, the cool breeze, the beautiful landscape gardens and the tall mango trees provide plenty of shade for walking. After a hectic journey by car driving all the way from... More

Stayed for 10 nights with the family. The room was comfortable enough. Features were good. Cleaning was adequate and facilities decent. The reception staff were fantastic. Very helpful. Assigned parking was useful as well. Negatives for us: 1. Second bedroom was a bit small for two beds and our two teen boys were a bit close. 2. Smokers on balconies... More

Having been to Cairns twice in the past two years, I have chosen to stay at North Cove Waterfront both times. The spacious living areas were perfect for lounging around in on the days we didn't feel like taking the short walk into the city. And the apartments meant we could cook and do all our washing when we pleased.... More

Booked a last minute 5 day winter break through Wotif and was extremely happy with the North Cove Suites. Great location - close enough to the city without being in the middle of the city 'traffic'. Apartment was a good size and very well appointed, with everything you might need for a family stay. Really appreciated the easy method of... More

This would be one of the worst stays we have ever had. We arrived to not having anyone greet us, our room key was left in a safe out front because no one is there on saturdays after 12 noon. We got to our room to find nothing but filth, food down the cupboard doors, fat over the stove top.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this dinnivieritz. Let’s not forgot that you were allocated a non-ocean facing apartment. While I appreciate all feedback as this allows for us to improve on our apartments, storming in demanding an apartment with the ever so important ‘ocean views’ that you felt you were entitled to, does not sit well with...

Really enjoyed our stay at North Cove! Comfortable, clean and large air conditioned apartments. The pool was great and we were literally right across from the beach, loved it. Will definitely stay again - thanks! :)
