Apartment itself was great, the sauba was locked so we couldn't use it. Water was leaking all through the corridor on the floor we stayed on so the corridor stunk of wet carpet. Managers are very friendly but for the petite paid i would expect a full time concierge service

Thank you taking the time to write a review. However we have no idea who you are. We do not advertise that we have a full time concierge. we are however available 24 hours which is highlighted. Yes there are leaks in the corridors and this is been addressed.

great location great balcony very accessible. only issue was poor previous cleaning that left a loaf of mouldy bread in the kitchen cupboards from an earlier occupant (obviously had been there for some time!!). other than that they would have got 5/5.

Thank you for the review. I agree about the bread!!! Thank you for letting us know. We have taken this up with the cleaners.

While we were initially happy with our room and view, we soon found that all was not as good as first looked. We are a family of 4 and we all couldn't get a hot shower each night!! The hot water ran out after 2 people had showered. I expect for $800 plus for the 3 nights we stayed, that all of us being able to have a hot shower would be the least of our worries. So for this reason, we will not be returning to stay here in future trips to Cairns.

If you had told us than we could have had this problem fixed for you. The fact that you have replied with out leaving a name does not help as we do not know what apartment to look at to fix the problem

Great apartment with water views

Arrived early and was accommodated by nice staff. Friendly & helpful. Rooms great, kitchen great , tv, foxtel everything that we needed. Pool area a bit strange , two pools not linked. No one using the pool , not like resort facilities , not open plan pool , even though clean . No bath tub in bathroom . No fans in the bathrooms . Air con worked well and we had a great time .

Noisy

Pros: location
Cons: needs a facelift
Location: town central so everything there
could not fault the staff and arrival, motel is getting on but still a nice stay. one thing that is deterring is mainly the night time noise, never got a full nights sleep while i was there as the motel is not all that noise proof and there seems to be alot of drunks walking past between 11pm and 2am carrying on.
