Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had to cancel the first 2 bookings but that is how things operate these days when borders can be shut down for a single case local or interstate - we managed 3 days before the Melbourne case would have put me in isolation but fortunately I isolated at the airport and flew out that day. Is it any wonder tourism operators in Qld and those that book holidays are suffering? Our 2 bedroom 2 bathroom ground floor location was excellent. The apartment had everything you need including wifi, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, Foxtel and an excellent view across the river from the full width balcony. A quiet location, airconditioning and overhead fans made sleep easy. Staff were friendly and helpful and the Cannon Hill restaurant precinct is a short walk away. We couldn't fault it and will certainly be back.

Stayed here for two nights while our house was being packed up for our move interstate.

This is the second time we’ve stayed here and again it was excellent. One bedroom apartment with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and laundry.

The only gripe was a light by the front door outside the apartment was on all night. The problem was the light shone through our bedroom window all night. The blinds didn’t cover the whole window so the light shone into our bedroom. We both woke up in the middle of the night thinking it was morning.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for eight nights in December 2021. This was our second stay at Itara apartments, this time in a bigger unit to accommodate additional family members.

The apartment is spacious and well appointed. The main bedroom was very quiet and the bed was comfy. A little road noise from the front bedroom but not enough to be a bother. Full sized fridge, with all of the kitchen and laundry amenities you would expect. A small balcony out the front and larger one at the rear overlooking the river. Excellent air conditioners and ceiling fans.

Convenient location on the riverway just a short easy walk to the lagoon and pool. A great walking track along the riverway.

Shopping centres, ten pin bowling alley, movie theatre, fast food and a variety of eateries all very close by.

We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Our short stay at Itara Apartments was quite pleasant - everything we needed was nearby. The apartments are clean; safe and secure. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Quiet setting and surrounds are equally pleasant.

Very roomy apartments right on the river with the lagoon just a stones throw away. We preferred swimming in the hotel pool though which was private, secure and clean. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Lounge seating was a bit small for our large family and we had some ants in the bathroom (only in the bathroom) however it is to be expected in Northern Queensland especially in the middle of the wet. They were just after the water left over from the shower. I would recommend these apartments.

All good. Stayed there whilst finalising our move to melbourne. Staff were super friendly, the apartment was a great size and I was thankful for the washer and dryer. Good location, close to willows and cannon park. Glad I picked this one- made a stressful situation that much easier.
