“Just Perfect, we'll be back again for sure”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We were 4 adults & a toddler staying in a 3 bedroom apartment for 5 nights. The apartment was spotless with all modern amenities. We were on the 11th floor with a beautiful view over Trinity Inlet & amazing sunrises (if you're awake that early). The verandah was huge which made having a toddler in an apartment bearable as there was plenty of space for her. The location was close enough to walk everywhere but far enough away from the nightclubs & bars so peace and quiet was possible at night time. The manager David could not have been anymore friendly & was extremely helpful with any queries or needs that we had. We have never bothered reviewing any holidays/ accommodation before but everything about Jack & Newell was outstanding so we thought we'd pass on our experience. We'll be back again for sure.

Our family had one of the most enjoyable holidays to remember which no doubt is a reflection on the Jack & Newell. David & Joelette made us feel very welcome from check-in to check-out.

Room Tip: 701 was our room which was ideal for our family of 5.

We recently stayed for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment for our family of 4. The Jack & Newel Unit was outstanding. It was very clean and modern, fully stocked and suited our needs perfectly. David the onsite manager was awesome, anything we needed, he could help. The unit facilities were also great, an onsite pool, Gym and carparking all made out stay so much easier. These units are a short stroll to the esplanade and shops, but away from the hustle and bustle. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these units to anyone or for that matter choose to stay here again. thanks :)

We stayed at the Jack & Newell apartments in June (3 days) with a family of four (two young children), after having read the very good reviews on tripadvisor.

There are many good points which one can mention, which will want you to stay here, but one point which does need to be mentioned first is the friendliness and kindness of David & Joelette (resident managers). Whatever you plan, whatever you want to experience in Cairns and the surrounding areas you can be sure that David and Joelette will help and go the extra mile to help you! Thank you again David for everything!

The apartments are located conveniently in walking distance to the esplanade, the docs where most trips set off for the barrier reef and most restaurants and shops. Apartments are modern, spacious (we saw two of them), clean and all very well equipped with modern gadgets.

All in all, the perfect location for your stay in Cairns.

We came over to do a triathlon relay race as a husband/wife team as the start of our latest Oz vacation and brought two 17 year olds. We wanted quiet, a kitchen to cook our own food, 2 bedrooms, close to the race start, and easy for teenagers to come and go. The location was perfect. We had room 701 that overlooked the inlet and cruise ship terminal. On occasion you had some noise from that area but we closed the windows and ran the AC's fan to create white noise. David and Joelette were very helpful and went out of their way to assist us from booking reef trips to giving a personal spare phone cord of their own to one of the teenagers to use and keep. If you live in the US ask them how to use the appliances in the kitchen.

I chose this after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. My wife and I stayed on the 11 floor and had great water views. Dave was cheery, very helpful and booked tours for us to Kuranda and Reef Magic. Clean, spacious living area with separate bedrooms. Great location - walking distance to Woolworths and esplanade. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Jack & Newell for three nights in April and found it to be in a central location to the esplanade and restaurants. The room was lovely with views to the water and very clean. I would stay here again.
