Reef Gateway Apartments, Cairns
Shower splashed over bathroom floor. (Management provided extra bath mats). No outdoor chairs on our balcony (which was the car park). Bedroom cupboards had no shelving (a basket unit that collapsed) in one and no hangers in the other. Would like to have recliners near pool. Spa was not working.

Centrally located & great value for your $
Excellent value, spacious & comfortable, clean!
Great stay! We loved the split level town house. Very roomy for 3 and came with a fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer. Comfortable, near great restaurants and shops and only a 15 minute walk to the main part of Cairns. Bob also helped us book our tours.

Really only slept in unit, was busy through - out the day. Air conditioners were noisy, but that is usual with box type air cons.

a clean and comfortable holiday apartment
nice garden, nice swimming pool, clean room
it was clean and comfortable 2 bd apartment. nice little garden nice and clean swimming pool - such a lovely place to relax it is well worth of money ( it costs us just $112.50 per night ) the only bad thing is that it is a little bit far from city and beach (15mins walking) but it is still in a distance that we could walk (maybe better if you hire a car)
