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!

Great place to stay.
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.

Good value for money with cooking facilities etc.
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.

Rooms were nicely appointed.
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.

value for money
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.

delighted with our room
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.

realized you have FOXTEL
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.

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.

Very comfortable place to stay
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.

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.

Very nice place to stay
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.
Posted By Julie Jones
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

Accommodation was very comfortable
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!
Posted By Karina Egitto
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.
Posted By Doreen Richardson
clean and well equipped
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.
Posted By Josephine Pek
pool at your doorstep
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!
Posted By Michelle Geater-Johnson
great place to stay
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
Posted By Maralyn Gruneklee
great place to stay
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.
Posted By David Griffin
perfect for our family
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.

Just do it!
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!

Suited our needs
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.

Would also highly recommend
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!!!

perfect for our needs
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.
Posted By Helen Jackson
everything went really well
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.

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).

Posted By Yossy Wicasana
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.

well worth the price
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.
