Check in was a little difficult. No direct access from The Esplanade .. had to wait for someone to come and unlock a door. Reception on a different level .. all a bit clunky. Staff friendly and helpful though and location great for being close to Cairns CBD attractions.

Property was extremely hard to find because address given is not where you enter from?? So dated & had an odd smell. Bathroom/Shower setup, well that is just something we’ve never seen before. Wouldn’t recommend

The property was central and convenient. It was clean and quirky and the view was beautiful. The only things we expected that wasn’t in the self contained apartment was a dishwasher and a dryer (as it was raining the dryer would have been especially handy)
