We were put up here by my partners employer when we first moved to Cairns. After reading the reviews I was dreading it - it's really not that bad! Apartment is big, and I think has been repainted with new carpets and furniture recently. Bed linen, carpets and sofa were all clean. Kitchen appliances are all a bit old the...

The staff were very helpful, allowing me to book into my room a lot earlier than planned. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and each room had a nice kitchenette which can save a lot of money to have a quick breakfast or lunch. The room had a balcony with a view although the balcony area could be...

I recently moved from London to Cairns for work. My employer put me in this motel for the first 3 weeks while I get settled down. This motel locates right across street of my workplace which is very convenient. Unfortunately, other than that, this motel is absolutely disappointing and substandard in every aspects. Upon arrival, this one-bedroom apartment seems fine...

Everything you need is available at these self catering accommodation. Two roomed apartment with Foxtel just outside the main attractions so cheaper to stay. The main seafront area is about a ten minute walk. Clean apartments with air con throughout and friendly helpful staff

We usually choose Best Western when we travel as supposedly there is a general expectation of good, clean apartments with good amenities. The size of the one bedroom apartment was great. The kitchen very workable. Scarce on furnishing but adequate. The unit reaked of mould upon entering it, and our request to relocate to a 'sunnier' unit without the mould...

Great apartment, really clean and very spacious. Staff were great! Not far from all the shops/ restaurants. Not too noisy. Mostly family's. Really glad the apartment had a dishwasher! Makes having a holiday more enjoyable when you don't have to clean.

Don't confuse this Best Western with the one across the road from Cairns Central shopping centre. This one is located on Lake street, across the road from the public hospital. I was happy with the apartment, great size. Had all the necessities. You are able to walk into the main centre of town/esplanade/cairn central however I'd recommend having a car/taxi....

The apartments have great potential. All amenities are present. But it is old and worn, needs an upgrade in sofa and bed. It is not clean. Found old two different old socks in room and food under the bed. The bed is poor, like sleeping on the floor. A business centre is advertised but one does not exist. Dealing with...
