Hubby and I booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 11 days as we were in Cairns for study. We arrived just after 6pm and thankfully reception was still open. Karen seems like a lovely lady. She was very friendly and helpful and obliged whenever we had any questions. The room was decent enough for our stay, but isn't exactly what...

Thanks very much for your honest review. We are always looking for improvements and will take your comments on board. I apologize for the laundry equipment giving you a hard time. In future please feel free to ask for anything you need such as fresh towels or how to find the Austar/Foxtel on your TV (it is available in every...

Thanks for your honest review. I am at a loss to explain how you found your room not clean. Everything is cleaned when we clean, the floors are vacuumed and mopped with disinfectant, the ovens and cook-tops are cleaned and disinfected. We try to be sympathetic to the planet, if a washing machine gets a rust spot in the tub...

Yorkeys Knob is a quiet beach village just north of Cairns, a good base for sightseeing and beach activities. We had a comfortable apartment with queen bed, ensuite bathroom, lounge, full kitchen and laundry facilities, good-sized balcony, and a sandy beach just across the road. friendly and helpful advice for trips and shopping. Restaurant choice is limited, but the boat...

We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place is very clean. The bay is lovely and quiet. We enjoyed sunning by the pool. Karen the Manager is very nice and helpful. Shops for essentials are handy. We had a rental car to see local things. Only 15 minutes from airport. Good to play golf at local...

Location and view were lovely but the cleanliness left an awful lot to be desired. It was obvious that this apartment had not been cleaned properly for many years. As a result we felt reluctant to touch or use anything. When we complained a token clean was provided but the end result was still a very unclean and unacceptable dirty...

Thank Sharon C
61sims, Manager at The York Beachfront Holiday Apartments, responded to this review

I am sorry that you found the unit unclean. I am unable to explain this because we do all the cleaning ourselves and think we set a high standard as is often commented on. We apologize if this was not the case for you and thank you for staying. We will be more diligent in future.

If you want to be by the beach these are the apartments for you, in a quiet location with facilities and places to eat or get a take away. The apartments were clean and neat and in my opinion almost four star....cutlery and crockery did not match, fridge and cooker were a bit old but all in working order. Nothing...

Thanks you your feed-back, we would like everything to be nice and new as well but it comes at a cost. We replace what we can as soon as we can and try to keep the units fresh. Thanks for staying and for your comments.

Stayed on ground floor appt for 2 nights with family. Hostess very accomodating, unit clean and inviting. Swimming pool was a little cool, but didn't stop my son from getting in. Was nice to have a patrolled beach just across the road. Very quiet both day and night.

After reading the reviews on this site we were very surprised at how average this place was. While nothing major was wrong this is not a four star motel and all the little things just added up to leave us less then impressed Check in was friendly and I do not remember ever actually getting escorted to a room before...

We went to Yorkey’s Knob for 5 days to see the eclipse in November 2012. The apartment exceeded our expectations and came fully equipped for self-catering. All balconies faced the sea which was a short walk over a quiet road. What set The York apart for us was Karen the hostess, who helped us out considerably, including looking after our...

Sorry Mary, but, if you need a ground floor unit you need to book one in advance rather than just assuming we will have one for you. We have 4 ground floor units, we live in one, the second was full and the third had no AC, the fourth was waiting for a new fridge. So no we would not...
