The rooms are lovely, clean and overlook the pool area. Very close to everything in Cairns. Easy walk to Cairns Central shopping Centre and railway. Secure double door entrance. Friendly staff but beds are a bit too firm for really comfortable sleep. Rooms are not serviced unless asked for and costs more

Rooms ok, we booked a king bed and only got a queen, not a big deal, the wife not happy with those old school tiny wall mounted hair dryer. High bath tub shower, old school management style, breakfast experience was woeful, one guy to take orders, cook, serve, cleanup and Bill, waited an hour to get breakfast, then it came... More

This was our first trip to Cairns. We had a studio apartment, and the actual apartments are very well located, quiet, very clean, and the amenities are many. There are hotplates, glasses (including wine glasses), plates, cutlery, toaster, microwave, large fridge, pots and pans, hairdryer etc. As well as the usual electric jug, coffee cups or cups and saucers, with...

Location central but dodgy. Train line located directly behind units. Very noisy location. Other guests arriving home late can be easily heard at all hours of the morning. Verandahs face each other over pool areas. Not conducive to relaxing stay.

My husband and I stayed here 8-10th September 2016. Our apartment while quite well equipped was dark and depressing. We were situated on the ground floor and no view of anything and in fact we didn't really see the light of day! The area is a bit dodgy also with police stopping people in their cars down Water St on... More

These are some of the noisiest rooms I have ever stayed in. Tiled floors throughout the complex, mixed with heavy 90's style cane furniture means if you can hear people sitting, walking and moving furniture all night long. The central stairs that run through the complex (no lifts) are extremely noisy, with the apartments all backing on to at least... More

Had a great few days here! Very clean rooms! Nice and spacious but cosy at the same time! Felt like home! Very affordable and great spot away from all the backpackers. Great staff, and very quiet area! Plenty of bbqs and great pools. If you have a car, there are plenty of parking spots! No complaints

Very unhelpful management. The room that was booked was advertised as a king room but was only 2 single beds pushed together. When management was asked about the bedding arrangement we were told that there would be no change to this and we had to put up with it. The air con leaked water out the vent all over our... More

Stayed at the apartments for 3 nights over a long weekend and enjoyed the stay. The complementary Internet was pretty poor and the breakfast was below average, but overall a good location, quiet clean rooms and nice pools to swim in.
