In a good position

Many guests have been fond of the location of this property, as it is a short walk from Cairns' Central Business District and a number of different shopping areas. Guests could also reach the waterfront in a matter of minutes, which was appreciated.

Fully stocked apartments

Negative Reviews

Unwelcoming staff members

Multiple guests have complained about the reception staff at this apartment complex, saying that they aren't very friendly to guests upon arrival. These staff members don't seem to want to be there and are unwilling to assist guests or greet them with a smile.

Poor Wi-Fi connectivity

Guests have reported that the Wi-Fi service at this property is very poor to the point where it is almost unusable. These guests have said that the internet is so slow that it isn't even worth trying to use it while staying there.

Quite noisy

There have been complaints about the noise levels at this property. There is a train track right behind the building, which has created some noise. In addition, an airport and a highway are in the area, which further adds to the amount of noise present.
