Best Western has it all, accommodating 3 seniors full Kitchen laundry and dryer extremely comfortable opposite Cairns Hospital and a walk to the Esplanade , plenty of coffee shops , eateries Gift shops, markets, and a great swimming and sunbaking area, a choice of adventures Reef and hinterland Cairns has it all but can be seasonal

Everything you need is available at these self catering accommodation. Two roomed apartment with Foxtel just outside the main attractions so cheaper to stay. The main seafront area is about a ten minute walk. Clean apartments with air con throughout and friendly helpful staff

We usually choose Best Western when we travel as supposedly there is a general expectation of good, clean apartments with good amenities. The size of the one bedroom apartment was great. The kitchen very workable. Scarce on furnishing but adequate. The unit reaked of mould upon entering it, and our request to relocate to a 'sunnier' unit without the mould... More

Great apartment, really clean and very spacious. Staff were great! Not far from all the shops/ restaurants. Not too noisy. Mostly family's. Really glad the apartment had a dishwasher! Makes having a holiday more enjoyable when you don't have to clean.

Don't confuse this Best Western with the one across the road from Cairns Central shopping centre. This one is located on Lake street, across the road from the public hospital. I was happy with the apartment, great size. Had all the necessities. You are able to walk into the main centre of town/esplanade/cairn central however I'd recommend having a car/taxi.... More

The apartments have great potential. All amenities are present. But it is old and worn, needs an upgrade in sofa and bed. It is not clean. Found old two different old socks in room and food under the bed. The bed is poor, like sleeping on the floor. A business centre is advertised but one does not exist. Dealing with... More

Apart from the great price the apartment offered fabulous vicinity. Opposite a great shopping centre, easy walking to the foreshore. The staff were obliging and very helpful. Facilities were excellent for our 3 night stay and would be good for any length of time. Laundry detergent was included for any washing that was required. Overall very comfortable and highly recommended.... More

Originally booked in here via Booking.com for one week but enjoyed it so much we stayed for two ! These apartments are situated right opposite Cairns Hospital on Lake St. From the outside they look not very pretty but the apartments are spacious, clean and very well equipped. Our balcony faced onto Lake St overlooking the hospital but we never... More
