    Hi Ms. Adriette, Good day~ I have made a booking at your hotel for Christmas Dec. 25-29, 2016 since last August for One Bedroom Apartment Harbour View for 3 adults. Is the refurbishment done for the one bedroom apartment harbour view? I have been checking tripadvisor reviews because of my concern since it's our first time in Cairns esp we will be at your hotel on Chrismas day and looking forward to a great stay. Hoping to hear from you soonest. Thanks so much.
