Nice place, friendly staff
Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Only down side my air con was not working and was not repaired during the duration of my stay (7 days). Apartments are slightly older than appear in photos but still a nice place to stay.

We have stayed here several times and like it for the convenient location and cleanliness. However, this time we were disappointed that the room we had faced west when we had specifically asked for a room where we could see the midnight NYE fireworks, and had booked it weeks in advance for that reason. The pool area was locked off as well so we totally missed the event we went there for. We asked for a room change as soon as we arrived, but were not given that option.

whats gone wrong
We have stayed ant Cairns Central Apts on several occasions in the past and have been happy but this time not so much.We choose this hotel for its location and being able to have secure parking.This time there seemed less parking for guests ,We had occasion to need reception assistance at had noted notice in lift said reception closed at 7pm.Got no answer and reception closed Meanwhile we noticed on guest info reception closed at 6pm but dial 9 for 24 hr service' NO ANSWER There was a phone number on sign near reception to call for service.,Message on phone said phone disconnected...We gave up. Not impressed..Our problem was perhaps minor but what if it was an real emergency. We spoke to other guests on our early departure(prior to reception opening)and they had stayed there several times before like us and they hadn't been impressed with their stay either but believed there was new management. If this is the case i suggest new management take a check on themselves

Wrong room but great location
Arrived with confirmed apartment booking, got to the room and it's a really small studio. Went and visited manager and he said sorry apartments are full until the following day - this is the first time this has ever happened to me however surely when a rooms category is booked nad confirmed then it should always be available. They did move me into an apartment the following day which was very spacious. Not having the apartment meant I had to cancel pre-dinner drinks at my place with some friends and therefore this put a major damper on the quick trip. When contacted them regarding compensation or a refund they were less than accommodating, only providing the gap between room rates - which is very poor as I would never have stayed in the small studio room. I can't fault's customer service and Gold team though - they were quick and responsive. Overall place is a little dated but has everything. Was surprised to see shower over bath without any shower screen/curtain. Location is across the road from the shopping centre, the area is super quiet and yet a 5-minute walk to the esplanade.

I wouldn’t come back
Hotel is in a great location, close to some restaurants and Cairns Central mall (not near the esplanade though) but what let’s this place down is the serious lack of any kind of customer service and also the overall state of cleanliness. We turned up at 6.40pm to discover we were locked out of the hotel. There is an after hours machine to enter a code to get a key but nobody from the hotel decided to tell us this or give us the code! After waiting around for some time and calling the after hours number, we were ultimately let in by another guest who laughed and entered a generic code “123” and our keys dropped out. Incredible. Once inside you will notice the walls and floors are stained and marked and the hotel is overall looking pretty tired. The room was ok. The bed was comfy but that’s about all I can say in its favour. I’m glad we were only staying for a night before moving on. I wouldn’t stay here again nor recommend it. Wasn’t worth the money.

Always good here
We have stayed at this hotel several times now, and keep coming back to it. It is always very clean and the rooms are well laid out. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Esplanade, our vehicle stays in the undercover parking area. Staff are friendly and efficient, and the entire complex seems to be extremely well managed.
