Great comfortable stay

Stayed here with a friend and it was a very lovely stay. The staff were very accommodating and super friendly and helpful. The room had everything we required and was also very close to everything. 5mins from the lagoon, on top of the marina where all the ships go out to the GBR, close to restaurants and shopping as well. We would stay here again :) One thing though is that, towels and shampoo are only provided on the first night, however the towels were able to last my friend and i through the 3 days we stayed - we did read that housekeeping service was every 3 days, so i guess since we stayed exactly 3 days we missed the service. Shampoo we did have to buy new ones ourselves and were told the little bottles first provided were part of the complimentary welcome pack. Though this is really only a small blip.

Great Location

The apartment is perfectly located along the esplanade, close to the reef terminal, restaurants and everything else. The free usage of gym, pool and sauna makes it a good value. Staff is friendly and flexible. The only down side is the quality of the TV. It was so bad that we had to give up on it. With the price of TV dropping so much, it is a reasonable investment replacing it to provide customer a perfect experience.

Great Value and Location

First up was hard to find, as was check in location was not listed and staff not answering phones. Asked the reception at "Harbour Lights" hotel (same physcial building) Told me that the reception is in the visitor information on the corner in front of the hilton. Room was good, Overlooking the marina, boats a little noisy starting up each morning, Some Chinese tourists very noisy along board walk.

Unserviced Apartments

Number 1 this is not a Hotel, it is not even a Serviced Apartment. It is a collection of privately owned apartments available for short-term holiday letting. There are no signs on the apartment building (it is actually the Harbour Lights Apartments) and there is no reception, you have to go down the road to a tourist office to collect your key which is somewhat confusing given that it doesn't have a sign either. There is also no maid service, apparently you have to request this specifically and pay extra for it. We had to dispose of garbage ourselves and keep re-using the same towels every day. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was reasonably spacious but the beds were a double bed in 1 room and 2 singles beds pushed together in the other room. The mattresses were too hard and the pillows too soft. Not exactly 5 star luxury. On the plus side it is right beside the marina where all the Great Barrier Reef cruises depart from and the room did have kitchen facilities and washing machine. Also parking is free. The number 1 most frustrating thing though is that their security system is broken and the swipe cards never work the first time. You have to repeatedly swipe them before they activate. There is nothing like desperately trying to swipe your card to get into the garage with cars lined behind you wondering what your problem is.

Need Directions to Find Check-in & Tiny Bathroom

To find where to check- in is really difficult - taxi drivers had no idea, and it was really only as we knew a Restaurant that was attached to the hotel that we managed to track it down. Staff at the hotel were quite unhelpful when they knew we were booked through "Cairns Luxury Apartments" rather than direct with them. The apartment was furthest from the lifts - a verrrry long walk! In terms of cleanliness the place is one of the best yet! Very clean, although only serviced once weekly. We stayed 8 nights, but the room was not serviced at all during our stay. Location is absolutely spot-on! Great views and easy walking to all town. Definitely try Dundees Restaurant downstairs - best food and reasonable prices for Cairns. ALWAYS book - it's a very popular restaurant. Bathroom was smaller than my ensuite at home, and the bath was unusable due to petite size. Very disappointing for "luxury" accommodation.

A wonderful stay

The hotel was in a great situation, right in town an easy walk to a host of great restaurants and the Casino. The room was lovely, great sized living area, bedroom and bathroom and a fantastic view over the inlet. The staff were helpful and really friendly. The only very small disappointment was the pool - it just didn't have very attractive surroundings - very sparse and seemed quite bare - but the view from the pool terrace was great.

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.
