Lovely apartments and so central in Cairns. For 2 couples having split apartments was fantastic. Definitely stay again and if only a coule would request Poolside. The 3 pools are beautiful!
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Great place to stay. We were on the ground floor which has great access to the pools and every other facility. If you are an older traveller anything else would have been a drag.
Staff were helpful and happy.
Wednesday, December 21, 2011
Good value for money with cooking facilities etc. Only problem was they put two single beds together to make up our king bed which was very uncomfortable.
Wednesday, November 09, 2011
Rooms were nicely appointed. Everything was done through the credit card and this was very good, not having to handle cash all the time. Sometimes the queues at front desk were tiresome, but the girls were very good when it came to sorting out tours etc.
Did feel unsafe after dark in the area, and there were quite a few noisy guests at one stage who were quite antisocial. Pools were a great delight given the weather conditions. These were well kept and lovely to use. Felt safe in these even at night.
Coming home I needed to leave the complex at 3.00 am to catch flight. Night watchman got up for me and helped me down with the bags. He did this voluntarily and was happy to oblige. I wished this complex was in a lighter area so that we could feel safe going out after dark.
Thursday, October 27, 2011
We have used SCA many times while staying in Cairns and find the service and staff courteous and friendly
Tuesday, September 20, 2011
A great location, very clean, easy access.
Monday, July 11, 2011
Loved the place,everything was comfortable,clean and in new condition.The service was friendly and very helpful.Walking distance to everything in town was fabulous.
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Great location - 2 mins walk to Cairns Central Shopping Centre and 10-15mins stroll to town centre.
Rooms great; value for money.
Only gripe - our room faced Office Works car park and dumpster bin. Very noisy from 8am in the morning until cob.
Hint: Request a room away from block 12 would be my advice.
Friday, May 27, 2011
My husband and I were delighted with our room. Any requests were attended to immediately. We have no hesitation in recommending Southern Cross Atrium to our friends and family.
Friday, May 20, 2011
I was so happy when I realized you have FOXTEL. I was able to watch NHL games live on TV! Only problem was that the TV was just a tad small.
Saturday, April 30, 2011
I like to say Travstar accommodated me and my partner in getting a lower level room. My partner recently had a knee surgery and they accommodated us. Thank you for your cooperation, it was greatly appreciated.
Monday, April 04, 2011
Very comfortable place to stay and very quiet and very clean and tidy. Just far enough away from esplanade to avoid the crowds but close enough to, that you could walk down if you wanted.
Tuesday, October 12, 2010
the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them
Tuesday, October 05, 2010
Our short stay in Cairns was just what we needed. The asthetics of the complex certainly gave us the feeling of being O.S. Thank you for your hospitality.
Thursday, September 23, 2010
very nice place to stay. Pools were good. Just a bit far away from main part of town we thought it was 15 min walk but turned out to be about 25 min but overall pretty good.
Wednesday, September 01, 2010
We found the Southern Cross very conveniently placed during our Cairns stay. It meant we could sight see in town and catch public buses to surrounding areas such as Palm Beach without the necessity of ordering a hire car. Thanks again for your help,Olive
Friday, August 27, 2010
We had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay at the Southern Cross Atrium. Would recommend this accomodation to anyone. The friendly service we received was first class.
Thursday, July 15, 2010
Nice Utensils. Nice environment. Free online service was expected but not included.
Wednesday, July 07, 2010
Loved the holiday. We had a very relaxing time. Just what my husband and i were after. Accommodation was perfect for us. Would definately go back there and recommend to a friend/family member.
Saturday, July 03, 2010
Comfortable,clean,good amenities i.e.pools,gym, and handy to shops.Close to restaurants, markets etc,not too far from Cairns centre.(We walked everywhere.)
Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Accomodation (studio apartment) was quite suitable for our needs. Reception staff could have been friendlier. The apartments are well situated for walking to shops,eating houses etc. Would stay there again.
Saturday, June 05, 2010
Thankyou Natasha, we had a wonderfull time and could not fault our accommadation and service.
Thursday, May 20, 2010
Lovely apartments and location but unfortunately we had the train line literally metres from our room which was not nice.
Friday, April 30, 2010
Very good accommodation for the price. And very convenient position.
Thursday, April 15, 2010

Thursday, April 08, 2010
The Southern Cross Atrium apartments was in a fantastic locality to Cairns Central Shopping area and within walking distance to the Reef Terminal. Accommodation was very comfortable and the hotel amenities, gym, bbq areas (very clean)and pool areas very picturesque and quiet. We stayed in a ground floor Studio Apartment which was pool side & thoroughly enjoyed being able to step out to the pool & BBQ areas. We thought South Cross Atrium Apartments were great and would highly recommend accommodation especially for those on a budget!
Sunday, April 04, 2010
accommodation first class,well situated.reception could be a bit more streamlined,although most staff very friendly and helpful.cafe/bar could be upgraded to become a central point for residents,but would certainly stay again.
Thursday, March 25, 2010
Studio apartment is clean and well equipped, will be better if microwave comes with conventional function, and if washing machine is included. Was quiet at night except for the last night when we were there. Neighbours were very noisy and our apartment was next to the spa pool. There were noise even at 1.00 am. Location was very good, next to shopping centre, but a little far walk, about 15 minutes, to the beach. No comment on service as there was no housekeeping provided even our stay was 5 nights.
Saturday, March 20, 2010
Spacious clean rooms with a pool at your doorstep. Clean & well kept bbq facilities and in a fab location. The Staff was always keen to help out. Asked for a quiet room and was accommodated - will definitely return and recommend!
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
This is a great place to stay. we had really good value for money on our deal. We booked extra nights because of this. Location is good because it is close to everything. Ten minute walk to beach. They need some sort of shade over the pools
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
We had a great time in Cairns and the Southern Cross Atrium is a great place to stay. We walked straight from our room 10 steps and into the pool. I will recomend to all my friends to stay there. Thanks From Lyn and David.
Monday, February 22, 2010
This was perfect for our family of 4 (one bedroom deluxe), loved having the kitchen. and a little extra room. Great location next to the mall, and within in walking distance from the lagoon and the heart of Cairns but also set back a bit and quiet. Great for families. Just a few minor downfalls, had to pay for internet, local calls, and little extras like dish and laundry soap. Overall we really liked it and would probably stay there again if we returned to Cairns.
Wednesday, February 10, 2010
Great place to stay. Thanks!
Thursday, February 04, 2010
very clean appartment complex. close to all that cairns has to offer but not smack bang in the middle if you want some peace and quiet. good swimming pools as well. would stay there again no problem.
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Kitchen well appointed with all pots/pans cooking utensils plates etc clean and good quality
Monday, January 04, 2010
We were extremely pleased with this accommodation, and it exceeded all of our expectations. It helped to give us a memorable holiday in Australia
Sunday, November 29, 2009
Wonderful complex, located close to shops Restaurants and Train. Very highly recomended to all. Doug Sparkes
Wednesday, November 25, 2009
The self contained apartment was a great size for the two of us, however more storage space for clothes would have been helpful in the closet.
Monday, November 23, 2009
I was most impressed by my whole experience the complex was clean and tidy and value for money.
Being so close to Town was an added bonus.
Hope to return soon.
Friday, October 30, 2009
Good position again(particularly near shopping centre)pools difficult to get into and very cold.Had to lay on bed to watch tv as room very small, but we still had a good time.Thanks for a well planned trip, hope to contact you again.
Friday, October 23, 2009
Great easy to find and close to everything.
Very clean and nice surroundings.
Friday, October 02, 2009
It is such a convenient location to stay at, that I brought 10 of my friends back on my next visit to Cairns.
Thursday, September 17, 2009
Very pleased with everything and will definitely book through you again.
Monday, August 17, 2009
We were really pleased with our room and the convenient location of the apartment. The pool was great, the breakfast at the cafe was wonderful and the rooms themselves were modern, completely self-contained, clean and very pleasant. Thank you for a great holday!
Saturday, August 15, 2009
We had a great time in Southern Cross apartments. They are ideally located and have good facilities.
Thank you for your efficient organisation.
Wednesday, August 05, 2009
My Husband & I thoughly enjoyed our visit up North,everything was A1.The accomodation was also A1 would recommend it to one and all.Many Thanks.
Saturday, July 18, 2009
This is the second time we have stayed at the Southern Cross Atrium. This time we brought our daughters and their families with us and they commented that they would go back there next time in Cairns.
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
We had a 1 bedroom apartment. Booking was a little difficult thru SCA so we tried the help of Travstar it became easy. Emma was brilliant to deal with, very easy. Would recommend them for help when you visiting Cairns. The complex - Fantastic! Well equipped, clean, tidy, overall just great facilities. Would stay there again for sure next time in Cairns!! Just do it!
Friday, July 10, 2009
Suited our needs well; after a busy day room service with evening meals was the best- relaxing on balcony as the spa/pool were too cold to swim after dark in winter. For us to return one pool/spa area would need to be heated.
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
A GREAT PLACE TO STAY, NICE AND CLEAN AND NOT TO FAR FROM CITY LIFE.ROOMS WHERE GREAT AND HOTEL GROUNDS NICELY KEPT.CLOSE TO MAIN SHOPPING CENTER AND PUBS. WOULD STAY AGAIN AND RECCOMEND TO ANYONE.
Wednesday, June 17, 2009
We had a 5 night stay which we were very happy with,ideal position for what we needed. Reception staff obliging, would stay again if we ventured north. Thanks
Wednesday, April 29, 2009
The room we had was adequate to our needs as we where not in it very often.But it was good to be able to cook in the room when we wanted to.It was also well situated close to a supermarket and walking distance to the esplanade.We would stay there again .
Friday, March 13, 2009
We had the perfect holiday thanks to excellent service.
Wednesday, March 04, 2009
Best I have stayed in for the price.
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
The apartments were great, good size, modern and clean and we loved how central they were in Cairns, we walked everywhere we needed to. Only 2 things to mention, I dont know how much they charged for breakfast but we were a little disappointed that all we were given was toast and some cereal and also it seemed the aircon in our room maybe wasnt working to the best of its ability. Overall we were extemely happy with the accommodation and the amenities provided.
Would also highly recommend!!!
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Great accomodation, highly recommended. Beautiful landscaping, rooms and pools. Definately value for money!
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The central location suited us. Some shade sails or large shade trees in the car park is all that was missing.
Tuesday, February 03, 2009
Spotless apartment, convenient for all activities, shops, bars etc.
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
Handy being close to Cairns Central S/Centre and railway station. Was able to walk to city from there also. Found cane setting very uncomfortable to sit in
Tuesday, October 07, 2008
My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Cairns. This is mostly due to the efficiency of the staff at Southern Cross Atrium. Their customer service was excellant. We wanted for nothing. All our tours were booked for us as well as a 2 day car hire. Even when it was time to leave they printed our boarding passes for us so that we could enjoy a day of travelling in our rented car. The studio room that we rented was perfect for our needs. I would recommend it to all my family, friends and workmates.
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.
Wednesday, October 01, 2008
everything went really well, except I forgot to mention that we were not spring chickens and there were 3 flights of stairs, 1st lot 16 then 2 x 8 steps, in the dark juggling a walking stick and ports, but we managed, plus it was also raining, found out when we were leavinig we could have changed to a downstairs studio, but never mind, we enjoyed ourselves and we will go back next year, and stay at the Southern Cross and will use your company for the bookings, am just a little older and wiser now.
But thank you for arranging every thing for us, and will contact you in 2009.
Monday, September 29, 2008
A well laid out room and facilities.
Tuesday, September 16, 2008
Lovely onsite Restaurant. Delicious food prepared fresh every day. Reasonably priced.Good size rooms and very clean.
Saturday, September 13, 2008
All round I found the apartment bigger and better than expected. and so well situated for our needs.
Friday, September 12, 2008
Great venue with easy access to many facilities and also close to restaurants and other tourist venues.
Sunday, July 13, 2008
Good central location
Sunday, June 29, 2008
Located well, within walking distance to most facilities. Staff were very helpful with assistance with tour information and connections. However would not recommend the Deluxe 1 bed for 3 people, not enough privacy with bathroom facilites located off main bedroom. More suitable for couple or 2 singles (one sleeping in lounge area).
Thursday, June 12, 2008
Southern Cross is a wonderful place to enjoy your holidays. Location of appartments is perfect, waking distance from Sea & next to Cains Central shopping mall. We fully enjoyed our stay.
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Clean, neat, modern and beautifully presented.
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
A hassle free experience.
We arrived late and had to leave early the next morning for the Barrier Reef. Arrangement for shuttle to airport - no problem.
Thank you very much.
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
It was in a great location and very attractive. Staff were friendly and helpful. We experienced a minor problem with ants and the tile floor needed cleaning. We would stay there again.
Sunday, April 27, 2008
We found the location to the city to be fantastic. The room was functional and suited our needs. Our many thanks to the staff that ensured all our questions were answered promptly and correctly. I will recommend the Southern Cross apartments to our friends.
Thursday, April 17, 2008
We arrived late, and they promptly welcomed us in. The rooms were great, the location even better.The facilities were Top Notch.Would highly recommend to my friends and family and for such a GREAT rate.Thankyou for all your assistance, we will be back.!
Friday, February 29, 2008
Southern Cross is really a convenient and very nice place to stay. It is clean, new, just next to the shopping centre and not far from the centre of the city. From staying there, I am happy to find no problems at all.
Wednesday, February 06, 2008
It was nice staying at Southern Cross except that our room is at the back of office works and very early in the morning they have deliveries so it was noisy. Other than that it was good and we will book again with them next time we visit Cairns. Very convenient because we were so close to the shops and the staff are nice too.
Tuesday, January 15, 2008
Very handy to shopping centre. Great pool facilities and everything in the units you require.
Friday, January 11, 2008
just wanted to say thanks for your help with bookings at the Southers Cross & Palm Villas both places were very nice & helpful & an easy walk to main shops & food places.We had a wonderful time & only had 1 day of heavy rain but that was ok because its soooo warm anyway.
Wednesday, January 09, 2008
Will be staying there again next trip to FNQ. The location is excellent.
Monday, January 07, 2008
We did enjoy our stay at Southern Cross, specially its nearness to the Cairn Centre for self catering facilities.
Monday, December 03, 2007
After reading some of the other comments I was a bit apprehensive about Southern Cross Atrium Apartments afetr having bad experiences at other places. When we first arrived we were welcomed by the reception staff. Everybody was friendly and happy. When we got to our room we were amazed - What an awesome place.It was clean, tidy, well set out etc. I would recommend this place to anyone. it was well worth the price we paid and would definately go back their again. We grabbed some business cards and brochures and have been giving them out to people that we think would enjoy the experience as much as we did. Thank you to the staff of Southern Cross Atrium Apartments.You get an A++++++ from us.
Saturday, December 01, 2007
Thanks for guiding us to this great spot. It was lovely and clean, had great facilities and was so close to the shops, esplanade and marina. It made not having a car less of a problem. Had a wonderful time. Thanks
Friday, November 16, 2007
We were very happy staying at Southern Cross apartments, the rooms have everything you need, are clean & modern and we loved the 3 different pools, spas, bbq & gym facilities. We will stay here again when we return and will recommend to others also.
Wednesday, November 14, 2007
I have found \"Southern Cross Apartments\" an excellent place to stay. The service was great and close to the shopping centre.I have enjoyed Cairns very much, Thank you.
Friday, November 09, 2007
The apartment we stayed in was great and the pools, sauna and gym were a great bonus for a great stay. Staff were a little unfriengly though!
Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Close to the city, easy to find and great off-street parking.
Thursday, November 01, 2007
We would suggest that guests who stay for 1 week or longer be given a room away from the road as the noise was quite considerable.
Wednesday, October 17, 2007
Thank you so much Jodie for reserving a ground floor apartment due to my disability.
Your help was very valuable and your suggestion was very wise.
