Great place to stay, on site managers very helpful

Room the best, view and location the very plesant
Everything was above acceptable and would stay there again. Stayed four days and would have liked room service but is not available. Location and unit in a great position. Hospital extension did not bother us. Great Hotel out the back, 'Cock & Bull' Only a short very relaxing walk to the main area of Cairns. Pool area very easy to fit into and relax.
Shopping Tip: There is better shopping centres out a bit to the one in town (Cairns Centeral)

Lovely hotel and service with a smile

the scenery view in the front of apartment
It is quite nice view in the front of hotel. On the Esplanade side, it is coral sea. very beautiful. The location is a little bit far for walking to the wharf especially in the tropical weather. Suggest to take taxi to go the shopping center instead of walking.

Comfortable accommodation but no lift

good self catering accommodation
* friendly helpful staff * comfortable accommodation * I wish I had asked for a ground floor apartment as being seniors the 3 flights of steps was a bit much for our aged legs which I guess was our own fault for not for seeing this problem
Travel tip: If a senior with leg problems ask for a ground floor apartment

Nice resort all facilities, bit of a walk to Cairn

All facilities for your apartment
clean, appropriate rooms and layout.. Bit of a walk to Cairns city.. close to airport though. Owners are nice and friendly.
Restaurant Tip: recommendation to go to seafood smorgasboard down the road, in Acacia Court..

Great location on the Esplanade

Spacious apartment with great facilities
we booked an apartment at 181 knowing that it was situated a couple of kilometres from cairns cbd. the walk into town along the esplanade is very scenic but it does take about 15 minutes. the apartment we were allocated was on the 3rd floor but unfortunately the palms and trees block most of the view. any apartment from level 4 upwards would have great views of trinity bay, so make sure you ask for this when booking. apart from that, we were extremely happy with the apartment and would definitely book again.
