We thought our accommodation was perfect. A top story apartment, spacious and well furnished with a wonderful view over the sea. Could not have asked for more. Not all the apartments have this wonderful view and we were grateful. We would happily stay there again, but I think next year we will opt for Trinity Beach, which we found to be a quiet little paradise. If you handle booking there, we would happily book through your company again.

The apartment was on the 8th floor which had beautiful views. However, when I booked the accommodation, I was under the impression that Wifi would be available. This was one of the reasons I booked the apartment. Wifi could be purchased for $50 for 2GB, however we were advised that reception in our apartment was not good and we MAY get it if we sit on the balcony. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. Also, the TV reception was terrible and the TV cut out and came up with 'NO SIGNAL' every 15 mins or so.
Other than that, the stay was good, the apartment was old, however clean.

Response from 181 The Esplanade Apartments Cairns
appreciate for your feedback . I am glad that you are happy with view and room cleaning. actually the room is not old , we just put new lounge suit in the living room. the facility including fridge ,TV and other white furniture is quite new isn't it.
Sorry, you can not use wifi well, we use the hotspot at this moment, the signal is not good for the rooms at higher level. this issue will be sorted out soon since NBN will be deployed in our building, we will have high speed internet in each room. the guest will enjoy high speed internet in each room.
As to TV reception, we use foxtel , it should be no problem for reception at all. we did not receive any complain on this until now, it is pity you did not mention this issue during your stay, otherwise, we can check it and sort it out for you. thanks again for your feedback that helps us to improve our service to our guests .

This is the second time I have stayed at 181 The Esplanade and was very disappointed with the apartment. The location and view was excellent and I was able to check in early but the apartment was very outdated and dirty - mould or dust in all the air vents, glass table had smears over it, there was bits of plastic and hair in the drawers in main bedroom and the kitchen needed a complete overhaul and thorough clean.It was definitely overpriced and I will not be staying there again.

11 August 2013

Overall our apartment was of a high standard with a great outlook over the Cairns esplanade and a lovely verandah. A few minor repairs needed to be done (e.g. bedside lamp blown; oven grill not working) but the receptionist was very helpful when we couldn't get the foxtel channel to work and got a technician out the next day to retune it.
I was travelling with 2 people aged 70 & 80 and so a shower over a round spa bath was not such a safe option if you have mobility/balance problems, so we used the second shower which had a grab rail.
As more seniors are travelling now it would be helpful if all accommodation providers could look at offering 'senior friendly' options, where there would be grabrails in the shower, shower stools in case seniors need to sit in the shower and a stool to sit on in the bathroom. I didn't ask if this facility had some of those options - they may well have.
I would return to this facility again as it has a lovely outlook, great friendly reception staff and is only a 15 minute walk to the centre of Cairns.

Yes, we enjoyed our stay at 181 very much. The building is not very huge which has a personal touch and relaxing ambience. Our room was pretty, neat and tidy and the view of the sea and the mountain was just awesome. We loved the pool and the spa too.
The managers were very helpful and friendly.

Fantastic location,few more supplies ie dishwasher powder,washing powder,toilet paper,when you fly up and paying a fair price being "stingy' on very low cost items is a bit petty.The english woman on the eighth floor does nothing for customer relations. Ashley on the front desk is a real draw card and full of unbiast information A bit more attention to cleaning is needed,but all in all would recommend it as place to stay as base to discover the Cairns region.8/10 Really great would never tell anybody not to stay there.

On the whole it was very nice. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. However, for the cost, we did not expect to have to provide our own toilet rolls or a battery for the wall clock. We reported the non working clock to management and asked for new toilet rolls when the two provided ran out but were ,told we had to supply our own something which we have never had to do at any hotel or caravan park and no offer was made to either replace the battery or reimburse us for ours.
A television was available in the master bedroom but even after the manager tuned it in (the previous occupants had removed the aerial) it did not work properly.
One other major disappointment was the exorbitant cost of Internet access. We were asked to pay more for our stay than we pay for a whole month at home.
One last point which is common to most accommodation is lack of provision of a pair of scissors.

Thank you for taking the time to comment Carol. There is a starter pack of supplies provided free of charge at the beginning of every stay that includes soaps,shampoos, laundry powder, dishwashing liquid etc as well as toilet paper and tissues. This is standard practice throughout Qld in self catering apartments. We apologise for the clock battery and would happily reinburse you for it. The internet access is provided by a third party supplier and is about $9.95 / hour and we believe this is reasonable when compared to a 4 1/2 star hotel.
I agree with your suggestion of including scissors in the rooms - a great idea.

The service was warm, friendly and very helpful. A good location, short walk along the Esplanade to the center of town.

Thank you for your comments Joseph. The Esplanade is certainly a feature for Cairns and a fantastic stroll in to the town centre.
