Stayed in the apartments for a week with my Girlfriend. Good location, only about a ten minute walk from the Esplanade, and a 2 minute stroll from Cairns Central. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever, decent location, our studio apartment was clean & a reasonable size, with both the fan and air conditioning doing the job when required. Our apartment was at...

Stayed at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments from the 16/7 - 23/7 in a studio apartement with a pool view. Booked through webjet.com.au with a special earlybird rate. The apartment was clean, tidy and spacious. The kitchen was also well equipped. The staff were friendly and check in was easy. There were however, a few things that I didn't realise...

The good: Our apartment at Southern Cross Atrium was reasonably priced, spacious and very comfortable. It's a bit out of the way, but downtown is still within easy walking distance. We were right next to the train track and heard the train go by a few times, but it was never an issue. The shopping mall right next door was...

We stayed here after spending time in an absolutely delightful apartment at Port Douglas and I am afraid it fell well short of our expectations. We chose these apartments because of their location next to the Railway Station. Our room was on the second floor and lugging our luggage up quite steep stairs was not enjoyable. Then our room was...

Stayed here after 2 weeks of travelling up the east coast staying in tents, boats and hostels so an apt was a bit of a luxury. Stayed in a one bed room overlooking the pool, room was nice, had good kitchen facilities and was clean and we had no complaints. No lift which is a pain for bringing your luggage...

Only good thing about this apartment was the location and that's where it ends. It is right next door to a shopping centre which was good to go & buy the coffee , sugar etc as they don't service the rooms. We had the studio apartment on the 3rd floor which is ok to walk up & down but not...

Pros: Next to shopping centre so great location. A few blocks walk away from the main shops/ esplanade. Close enough to walk everywhere. Good if you are only using this place to sleep etc. Security is good. Gates close and have automatic opening. Reasonably quiet between 9.30pm-7am. Cons: Place echoes badly. You can hear your neighbours speak due to the...

The room was so small we couldn't fit 2 adults and 1 toddler. More than half the rooms are over the car park and the others have train line behind them!! The pools are not kid friendly like the net would have you think.!!!! I have never complained before and this is a first for me,(to do this online) we...

We enjoyed our stay at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments. We were pleasantly surprised at how central they were. We had a ground floor family unit near the train line. The trains don't go past very often so we weren't bothered. The apartments were clean, but a bit tired. They could do with a bit of a paint job, and...

Poor service, deceptive in how units are set up, if you are a family with kids as we were don't stay here because your kids end up with own apartment as they are all one bedroom dual key. Superior rooms need rangehoods in kitchens, fans in bathrooms and better cooking utensils. Overall unhappy with accommodation.
