Having been to Cairns before, my partner and I found the Grosvenor after a few terrible experiences of other accommodation in Cairns, we completely fell in love with location, the room, the value and the staff. We will not book anywhere else from now on.
The location is perfect a short walk and you reach the Esplanade, and a 10-15 minute walk from there you reach the main stretch where the lagoon is and good restaurants, and from there you are in the CBD. Your are also only a short walk to Cairns Central, the main shopping centre in the city. Across the road from the complex is a bottle shop, IGA, Night Owl, Pizza Ht and a few other eateries. There is a bus stop just out side that takes you on a short trip to the beaches. The views from the apartments are lovely, the rolling hills on the out skirts of Cairns.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was light, spacious, spotless and fully equipped with everything you would need. The whole apartment was air-conditioned and decorated to a high standard. Even though is was quite full when we stayed, you would never believe it, lovely and quiet. The value is amazing!
The complex itself has nice communal area where you can sit have a drink and a BBQ, we often found guests to talk to. It has lovely solar heated swimming pool with sun loungers, the communal areas are cleaned daily and kept clean, it is nice for somewhere to take so much pride.
The owners, Anne and Brian, were so friendly and accommodating, assisting us with tour information and us choosing the right tour for us, which you you don't get if you to one f the travel agent in the city. They have done alot of the tours themselves, which you would expect for someone selling you a tour. They were always happy and friendly and asked how your day had been.
I do not have any complaint about this place, our trip was enjoyable and memorable and we would definitely stay again and advise any travellers to stay here.
