While the apartments are basic, they are very clean. 2 bedroom apartment had two king singles and a queen. Washing machine and dryer came in handy. Staff very friendly. Very tidy, they were sweeping the carpark the morning we were leaving.

A spotless, simple apartment with everything you need. If we had any criticism, I would suggest that maybe the pillows could do with replacing but all in all, a great stay. After busy days we were content to go back there and it's quiet enough to have a good sleep...

We stayed in a apartment close to the pool area. It was on ground level which was easy as I have a toddler. The apartment was fairly clean. We did have to wash dishes before using them as they were not very clean. We swam in the pool which was enjoyable especially by the kids! Location was great as it was close to everything that we needed. Surprisingly traffic noise was minimal. Customer service was good and the price is worth paying when you book direct with them. We will definitely be coming back.

First time to Cairns and this apartment was just perfect for our family of 4. Though the pool was very cold, we still managed to dip in each day. The beds were comfortable with no sag that you often get in budget accommodation. Also we loved this location - so close to town but far enough from the busy main strip to feel relaxed.

Thanks for the great review, we appreciate the time you took to write it for us and for staying with us. I do agree the pool is a bit cold during the middle few months of the year, I always get out voted for solar heating so unfortunately unless that changes we cant heat the pool, sorry, but still the majority of the kids don't mind, they will splash around in it to warm themselves up, kids love the pool and even adults. Our beds are top quality Sealy beds, we don't skimp on bed quality as they are a huge part of a hotel and are cleaned regularly. We strive to meet the budget orientated people by not supplying all the bells and whistles some places do that a lot of people can do without and to provide the best service we can and quality and clean rooms so people will keep coming back. We are in a good location I believe as well, over the road from plenty of shops, restaurants yet away from the noisy city and traffic jams yet close enough to walk in there to avoid parking hassles. Hope to see you again one day, remember everyone, book direct for the best prices on our official website, save up to 20% on accommodation compared to booking through third party websites where you ALWAYS pay extra for the same.
