Cairns Conference”

I stayed three nights at the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments in a deluxe one-bedroom apartment. The room overlooked one of the pools and provided the privacy and space I required. Due to the conference program and other engagements I was unable to partake of the facilities - pool, barbecue, café, sauna and gym. The staff in reception were professional and able to assist me when I had to change rooms as I has specific requirements for shower access. Everything was done quickly efficiently and professionally. The ease of parking was great as I often returned late at night. The apartments are located near Cairns Central Shopping Centre and within walking distance of the esplanade. With 192 apartments on offer the level of noise was excellent - very quiet.

As my husband wasn't very well during our stay in Cairns the Southern Cross apartments were ideal, the apartment had everything we needed to be self sufficient, the shopping centre was close at hand, & an easy walk to the Esplanade. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Southern Cross Apartments.

Great location”

good location, nice pools

the apartment was located in a very convenient place. it was near supermarkets, mall, restaurants, bars and other shops. the pool was great too. the room itself was also good, complete with all the basic necessities. however, a lift should be provided in the building because we had to carry our luggage all the way to level 2 which was very heavy. if the guests were older or were not as physically fit, it would be difficult for them to bring their things to their rooms. i think it's not good for our backs to be carrying 20kg bags using the stairs. it would also be better if the rooms were cleaned by the staff every 3 days at least. but overall, i would recommend the southern cross atrium apartments to guest visiting cairns. i would definitely book the same apartment when i go back.

Great place to stay, close to everything.”

All have kitchenettes or kitchens, and close to all shopping.

This would be my 10th time I have stayed at Southern Cross when I go to Cairns. I find the Studio Apartments very clean and great for 1 or 2 people. You can cook your own food if needed in the kitchenette, and this place has everything needed to make it a comfortable stay. I found the reception staff to always be helpful in all ways. I highly recommend the place and will always stay there whenever I go back to Cairns.

comfortable and great value ”

A great location for a self catering apartment as it is only 3 minutes walk to the shopping center where you can get everything you need. Food is cheap in the local supermarket but surprisingly expensive even in the most ordinary of restaurants. The Southern Cross apartments are a bit away from the centre of things as it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Esplanade where all the action is but as the restaurants and bars were not what we were there for it was not an issue. In my opinion the pools are what sets these apartments apart as there are 3 separate pool areas which have a lovely atmosphere both day and night. A great place to unwind after a busy day! There are a variety of rooms and prices but I would recommend going for one with a pool view. The bedroom had a very effective but quiet air conditioner and very comfortable beds which made for a great night`s sleep.

Very good”

This was my second stay at Southern Cross Atrium. Its location is good and convenient to everything. We stayed in a studio room which was perfect except for one thing. The black out curtains only cover part of the windows. There was a bank of three louvred windows above the sliding door which had no cover at all. This allowed light from the street to flood the room. This is the second room I have had this problem with at Southern Cross Atrium. It is an issue that needs to be addressed. Reception endeavoured to accommodate a shift to another room, however, we chose to remain in the room as it was the best available. I will stay there again as the positives far outweigh this issue.

The apartments are so central to everything, I was thrilled with its location. It was walking distance from everything I ever needed. As a female staying on my own I was nervous of safety but I had no worries. The staff were so welcoming and helpful and the apartment complex felt very safe. The other visitors were also friendly. As the complex was close to everything I felt very safe walking around in a strange city. Thank you, I shall return and recommend these apartments to everyone coming to Cairns

Great location”

Stayed here for 6 nights and overall had a very nice stay. Great location near main strip of town. Stylish, clean and comfortable room. Would stay again. However oddities I found were: - we were only provided one tiny bottle of shampoo and this was to last for 6 nights. No conditioner provided - they don’t come and make up your room if you’re staying less than a week, so no fresh towels or room / bathroom supplies provided. - when waiting to talk to the hotel receptionist, I witnessed a couple being charged for a new box of tissues as they had run out in their room. I know our room certainly wasn’t provided with a new / unopened box of tissues so it’s surprising this hotel would go to the extent of charging for small things like that. -Cairns also doesn’t seem to believe in fly wire and the room only had window shutters that opened directly to the outside. -pools and spa are not heated and were so cold! - we had a studio apartment with cooking appliances but no oil.

Far from the beach, "King" bed is 2 singles pushed together

Wow! I stayed in two different "apartment" type places while I was in Cairns and this place blew the other one completely out of the water, though they were about the same price. The room was modern and clean. It seemed pretty secure - the parking lot is gated and locks after 10pm, and each set of rooms can only be entered via a double set of locked doors. It's right next to the mall, so there's food and shopping within a stone's throw. It's a great base if you're planning to stick around for a few days and drive around the area. I'd definitely stay here again!

The comfort of the rooms. That they werer unserviced .Convience to the Central shopping centre.

We had a great stay in Cairns and a great stay at the Southern Cross Atrium apartments. They were comfortable and having the connecting rooms meant that we had a great family feel to the holiday while still having our privacy. It was a bit of a walk down to the bay (20 mins I think) but really close to the Cairns central shopping plaza. I would recommend the apartments to other families of older kids.

Lovely decor, central location and a nice atmosphere.

we found the studio room great, as it had a nice decor, with cooking facilities (if required). my favourite thing about the room was that our balcony was beside the pool, so it was a nice place to sit with a drink at the end of the day or to enjoy breakfast first thing in the morning. the apartments are located nearly opposite the cairns central shopping mall and are within walking distance from the marina, so it is a very convenient location. the reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. i will recommend these apartments to my family and friends and will definitely stay there again.

Comfortable stay”

It was conveniently located next to the mall. There was a washer and dryer right outside our front door and there was a small dish washer in the apartment.

We stayed at southern cross atrium apartment for 3 nights and it was quite comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped but it is good only for very simple cooking since there was no cooker hood to extract smell and grease, fortunately there were bbq grills for our use. While they provided dish washer detergent, there was no dish washing liquid for washing things that may not fit into the small dishwasher.
