“a pleasent stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Originally booked for 6 nights but plans changed and needed to book 3 more' the receptionist was extremely helpful and let us keep the same rooms at the same rate as I booked the previous 6 nights.
Facilities good, very clean and tidy but remember this isn't a serviced room with linen or towel changes every few days. The room was very spacious and had good cooking facilities. The three pool areas are very pleasant. On the negative side our room was very noisy facing the tyre depot on water street with a telephone ringing all day. Bins are emptied early hours of the morning and there is a tendency for indigenous people to roam this area making a lot of noise. Also the wireless internet is expensive and expires after 24 hrs.
Overall the accomadation was fit for purpose and my only advice is request a room not facing onto water street.

Spacious apartments with plenty of room to move around & ample luggage storage. Very clean.
The complex is also spotless and you have a choice of 3 pools and a few spas so very easy to get a quiet spot to yourself.
Location is excellent, right next to Cairns Central shopping centre and a huge selection of restaurants and bars within 10 - 15 minutes walk in the city centre and along the esplanade.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage or have trouble with stairs it would be best to ask for ground floor as...

We stayed 6 nights in a studio. Spacious, with large bathroom, kitchenette area and good size tv opposite the bed. Nice size balcony, overlooking the pool area. Ask for Block 5 or 6, overlooking the pool. There are 3 other swimming pols on the complex so 3, 4' 5 and 6 are best. Other blocks overlook the car parks and are nearer the road. Trains run behind the complex but hardly heard any and didn't notice more than 2 planes going over. We arrived very late and Night Manager, Peter was really helpful and friendly. 15 min walk to the Promenade which provides a useful bit of exercise! I'd recommend Souther Cross Atrium to everyone.

A large complex of 12 blocks of (three floors), low rise apartments. The apartment blocks are divided by shady, paved, landscaped garden walkways and three pools; one lovely lap pool and two freeform pools with bubbly spas and adjacent covered outdoor B.B.Q dining areas. The buildings are designed to suit the tropical climate, with wide overhangs, and the garden areas dividing most buildings channel the breezes for natural cooling.
Our one bedroom, air conditioned apartment was ideal for two, a very small bedroom, spacious bathroom with walk-in shower, hand basin and small vanity counter top. The apartment decorated in cool beige tones, accented with deep reds. A small sitting room with sofa, large flat screen TV and DVD, and adjacent a kitchen area fitted with a 2 burner cook top, a good size refrigerator/small freezer, small dishwasher and microwave; a good supply of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils for self catering
Off the sitting room large sliding glass doors lead onto a tiled balcony area fitted with wooden plantation shutters which could be folded back if required. Our balcony overlooked the car parking area which did not matter; we spent little time there as outside temperatures and humidity during February in the tropical north are uncomfortable.
Self catering, grocery supplies are available in Coles and Bi-Lo supermarkets a few minutes walk from the apartments in the Cairns Central Shopping Mall. Currently both stores open weekdays at 8.00am (Sundays 9.00am) and close 9.00pm weekdays, on weekends close around 5.30pm
Further to previous comments on aircraft noise; this is difficult to avoid entirely in any Cairns City accommodation as Cairns Airport is located 7 klm north of Cairns Central business district with a single runway which is 3,156 m long. The flight path to the north of the main runway is located directly overhead Cairns Northern beach suburbs and the flight path to the South is located directly over central Cairns.

The apartment was excellent, plenty of room, with a separate bedroom and lounge /kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped, could have self catered if we had wanted. There was even a washing machine and tumble drier in the lobby. Every thing was very clean and in good order. The apts were very close to the large shpping mall, good for everything including supermarkets, and a cool down! Only a few minutes from the centre and lots of restaurants and other shops. We stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful, can even book trips for you.The only downside is the noisy laundry delivery at 6 in the morning.

We stayed in a studio for 4 nights. The apartment itself was nice, clean and modern, although there was no lift to access it. It is close to Cairns shopping mall, so it is quite handy. What lets the place down is the noise: as other people mentioned, you can hear the bin men in the morning, the planes fly low over the building during the day, etc. I am a light sleeper and therefore did not enjoy that part (my husband was fine though). Also, the staff (apart from one) are quite grumpy. It was still a nice stay but some details spoiled the fun a little.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was only a few minutes walk from the station (we came in on the Sunlander train) and pleased at just how central the location was. The rooms were clean and comfortable and adequately furnished with most Kitchen appliances fitted, no oven only a microwave (so the pizza's I bought from Coles were surplus lol) These are unserviced apartments but everything is there for a tea/coffee on arrival and towels are available from reception for a couple of dollars. The barbecue area is .well appointed and very popular with great views of the pool.Al in all a good apartment in a great location. The only downside is the cost of wifi DO NOT get the 1 hour over 3 days if you are going to use Skype Face Time or Facebook it is limited to 200mb and lasts about 8 minutes for $10 so an expensive way to surf the web look at the available packages.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view it beats the view and noise of the car park
