“Perfect for Holiday!”
Reviewed March 20, 2006

This was the best place we stayed at during our 2 week visit to Australia! Brian and his wife are extremely welcoming and accommodating, the hotel is immaculate and well-run, and the location is superb. Yorkey's Knob is a short drive away from Cairns, with quick and easy access to the gorgeous Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, and other great areas; we were easily able to rent a car and travel wherever we wanted to go. This place has all the ammenities of a hotel, but the intimate feel of a smaller bed and breakfast. We especially loved the spacious and airy layout, full kitchen, and large balcony overlooking the pool and nearby beach - the on-site restaurant is excellent as well if you don't feel like cooking or leaving the hotel. You won't be disappointed - cheaper prices can be found by booking through the website: ----

My husband & I spent 3 nights at the Golden Sands in Yorkeys Knob. We loved the place & would recommend it to anyone. Our apartment was clean & attractively decorated with a lovely view of the lagoon style pool. It was equipped with cable TV, phone & a washer/dryer, but no dishwasher. Parking was in the underground garage with lift access to all floors. I understand there is weekly maid service.
While not in view of the ocean or beach (beautiful trees & foliage shade the view) it is only a short walk to the beach. A quick drive into town gets you
to the grocery, post-office & bakery.
The open-air Star Apple restaurant on site provided(even in torrential rain!)excellent food & service.
Brian, the manager, was personable, gracious & very
helpful. He can offer advice & discounts on area attractions.

We stayed at the Golden Sands in August and found our one bedroom unit it to be spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Our large balcony had a lovely view of the tropically landscaped pool. We couldn't see the beach through the trees from our room but it was just a short walk through the garden and we were there. We didn't see the beaches up north to compare with but I'm definitely glad we didn't stay in Cairns because that beach is a mud flat at certain times of the day. There is a nice outdoor restaurant/bar on site. It's only a 10 or 15 minute trip to Cairns to catch a reef cruise and 5 minutes to the Sky Rail. The staff were very helpful in advising us on and arranging our reef cruise. The choices were overwhelming otherwise. This place worked out really well for our family of 2 adults and a 6 year old child and I definitely recommend it.
