Room for two

Stayed in the harbor view studio apartment. Great view of the harbor. Room was clean and a perfect size for two. Had a toaster, refrigerator, and some kitchen stuff so we were able to have breakfast in our room. Room was cleaned every 3 days but there were plenty of towels to go that long. For $155/night it's a great deal. Only down side was you had to buy internet use and it would only work if we were on the balcony.

Wonderful Location and Views

Cairns is simply the best place I've ever been. The location of the hotel is perfect and we were able to walk everywhere-malls, unlimited restaurants and tourist shops. The Pier has lots of indoor/outdoor restraunts right on the water and the Night Market is a lively place with food, shopping, and incredible cheap massages. My only complaints were the hotel standards are different from the U.S. Cairns Luxury Apartments are rated a 5 star but really are equivalent to a 3 1/2 star in the States; the view is still amazing and the room was nice, but definately not a 5 star. I'm guessing this goes for hotels throughout Australia. Also, the food in general is terrible (and very expensive). The average entree ranges from $20-$30; steak and seafood is more. The variety of good beer (and coffee) is also limited. For tours I would recommend booking a 4 part tour through FNQ travel. We were able to do two rainforest tours, diving and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, and river rafting on the Tully River (absolutely amazing). It is a perfect combination of activities for a reasonable price. The Cairns Night Zoo was a big disappointment; it was nice to see koalas and other animals up close and feed kangaroos, but most of the "cool" animals (cassowaries for example) are not nocturnal so we weren't able to see them. It is overpriced for what you actually get.

Cairns Luxury Apartment

Our experience was fantastic!! The hotel room was directly on the water front. The pier was in walking distance from our hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The rooms were nice and also had a washer & dryer and a full kitchen

Cairns australia Harbout Lilghts

We booked a Studio room. There we NO chairs in the room and the closet was only about 1 1/2 feet wide. When the 2 patio chairs were brought into the room it was too crowded. Fortunately the apt mamager readily changed us to a 1 BR apt at no extra charge which was great. No problem thereafer. So do NOT book a studio. [...]

Best view of the harbour!

The 2 bdrm apartment was perfect for myself and my young adult children. The view of the harbour was amazing and everything was in easy walking distance! We were able to cook our own meals in the kitchen and they even had an outdoor BBQ on the 4th floor which we used. The food at the resturants on the 1st floor along the boardwalk were excellent as well. I highly recommend the luxury apartments at Harbour Lights!

Misleading info but great upgrade

Apartment hotel is in a great location overlooking Cairns harbour. Can see all tour boats coming and going...great! However, we booked a room that was advertised as '80 sq. metres' (approx. 800 sq. feet). In reality was just a standard, compact hotel room (about half the advertised size). Complained about the misleading advertising, which they accepted and committed to rectify, and was upgraded at no extra cost to a 2-bedroom unit...which turned out to be fantastic! The two bedroom unit consisted of 2 bedrooms (1 king bed, 2 single beds), one WEIRD bathroom, lounge with large LCD TV, kitchen, great balcony with great views, and, AS A HUGE BONUS, a washer and dryer in a cupboard outside the bathroom. Bathroom was weird because it is designed to be shared with the occupants of the other room, but it has shutters into the master bedroom which provide no privacy. Even with just the two of us, it is still quite disconcerting to be able to hear EVERYTHING that is going on in the bathroom if you happen to be in the bedroom at the time. Can't even imagine what it would be like sharing with kids, or even worse, another couple!! No way! Hotel also had a gym and outdoor pool and BBQ area on 4th floor, which we regreat only finding on the last day of out stay.

Great selection of restuarants all along the harbour front. For the more popular restuarants, reservations are often required, so check with them earlier in the day.
