Old, dated, falling apart

2 out of 5
by from Adelaide
Posted Sep 13, 2016
No hot water for showers every night. Cupboard doors falling off hinges. Couches smelled gross. Very dated and shabby. Definitely not 'luxury' as written in large font on the side of the building. We were also supposed to have our room serviced once during our stay but it wasn't offered by housekeeping until 5pm the night before our departure. Man at reception was the saviour during our stay. He was friendly, professional and went above and beyond to assist us during our stay. This property shod few lucky to have him because he could certainly do much better than this run down hotel.

Great location when planning scuba diving outings

Pros: Location, accommodation, hotel staff.
Location: Walking or running, shopping, eating, drinking, going on snorkelling or scuba diving cruises.
Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful for all questions (location of stores, planning of tours, etc.). The hotel location was very convenient, close to grocery store, close to Esplanade for walking or running, close to marina for scuba excursions, etc.

OK close to everything over priced

Posted Jul 5, 2015
Pros: The Pool area although it needed a really good gurney
Cons: maintenance and cleaning
Location: central close to everything
The room was old and need some serious maintenance, tiles falling off the bathroom wall, and the carpet smelt and was sticky when you walked on it.

Outside of hotel not as posh as some,so might be deceiving to some. It was a great 1 bedroom apartment. There was a kitchenette, living room, seperate bedroom and large bathroom with washer and dryer. Bed and pillows were comfortable, bathroom had large, fluffy towels. Hotel was within walking distance to restaurants, Woolworths(where you can buy food), the train station(which was good for going on the train to Kuranda) and to the harbour for going to the reef. Parking was free. Staff was very friendly and great at helping to plan day trips.

My husband and I stayed at Il Centro Apartments for a week, we found the apartment clean and comfortable with secure off street parking, the staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't use the pool or BBQ area though it looked neat and clean. The location was great ,walking distance to restaurants, shopping center and the marina. We would recomend the Il Centro to friends.

Quiet location

4 out of 5
by from United Kingdom
Posted Aug 25, 2011
The apartments are in a very good location approx 5 - 10 min walk to the bars but far enough away so quiet at night. There is a double bed in bedroom with a double sofa bed in living room so suitable for 2 couples, apartments are nice and spacious with a well equiped kitchen area. Bathrooms are a good size with a powerfull shower, there is a full size washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board housed within the bathroom (very useful). The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. If we were to go back to Cairns we would book here again.

Location ideal, short walk to Esplanade, Casino and shops

4 out of 5

Posted Aug 6, 2011
Found the location ideal. Very helpful staff, nice comfortable apartment right opposite Courthouse and Police Station. Short stroll to shopping centre, shops, restaurants, casino and wonderful Esplanade walk. Only downside, shower was over bath and even though base of bath was originally non-slip found that age had reduced this situation and base was quite slippery with no handrails on wall to reduce likelihood of a fall.
