Exceptional 10.0
Great short stay in Cairns
Lovely spot convenient to shopping and restaurants, our unit had everything we needed plus a lovely balcony overlooking the pool, we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again, an easy walk to the waterfront
Lynette, sg4 night romance trip
Good 6.0
You can try your luck
The room 1107 faces the road and the traffic noise could be heard clearly every night. There was also some knocking sound coming from the heater inside the wardrobe and it would start in the middle of the nigh without fail. You can’t get a good night rest with all the noises. The suana room was stated in the information list that the opening hours was till 9pm. However, at 8.30pm it was locked and no where to get the keys at night. The good thing is the bbq pits are clean and the side gate was close by. There’s no lift to the 2nd storey which they call it first storey.

Poor 2.0
Do not stay unless you want to be by loading dock
DO NOT STAY HERE. I was booked into a studio apartment which was beside the loading dock so every morning from 5am there was the noise of trucks unloading goods. After the first night I asked to move and was told I would have to pay should I wish to do so. Further to get to the room I had to climb two flights of stairs with my luggage, no elevator available. One of the towels in the room was dirty upon arrival which was less than pleasant. There was a lady at the front desk who told me was called Karen who was sour and most unhelpful. The lady on check out was more friendly.

Very good 8.0
Ver friendly and welcoming service. Amenities were really good and handy. Parking onsite was great. It would be good to have an exhaust fan in the bathroom and a small writing desk in the living room. Internet service was slow and I needed to hotspot from my phone to use my computer.

Exceptional 10.0
Gorgeous property with great amenities including multiple pools (which is great if you want to chill out and people are already using another one!). Rooms are great with everything you need and the beds are comfy. Major shopping center (basically) right next door and the strand isnt too much of a walk. All in all a great place to stay.

Alister, au4 night trip
Very good 8.0
Bit quiet and chilly for Cairns
Reception closes early so checked in by night manager, Scotty, who did a good job. Very quiet this trip due to the pandemic, but relaxing by the pool and down the Esplanade was still good.
Glen, au4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The unit was clean and tidy, it’s in a great location walking distance to Cairns Central and only three blocks from esplanade, heated pool was a plus during winter and cameras overlook the car park providing peace of mind that your car is safe
