I stayed the Northern greenhouse with a group of friends for a total of four days in a 4-share apartment.
The room was large and clean, and contained 2 twin single beds and a double-decker bunk bed. There was a kitchen area at the far end of the room equipped with sink microwave, fridge and a stove, which came in handy as it saved us the trouble having to use the shared kitchen, which unsuprisingly suffers from a drop-off in cleanliness. There was a spacious en-suite bathroom that whilst not hotel-grade, was clean and in decent condition. Most importantly, the room's air-conditioning and fan was fully functional, which kept us comfortably cool during the hotter periods of our stay.
The receptionists were friendly and offer us good advice about specific activities suitable for us based on flight time/available hours on the last day we were there.
I found the location to be perfect for our activities in Cairns, located right in the middle of the CBD. There is a large cluster of eateries located a few metres away at the intersection of Grafton/Shield st - Japanese, Italian, Ochre etc, and alternatively you can walk down to the esplanade where the pricier establishments are.
