I am writing this review for my elderly father and his friend who stayed for 9 nights. They were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the managers and all the help and support they received with information, transport, bookings etc. The location is great for public transport, and of course accessing all the wonderful attractions in the area. The apartment had...

We will certainly make it at least an annual holiday destination. The rooms were large, bright and clean. We loved the beautiful warm and large pool right at our apartment door, and walks along the beach right across the quiet road. It was very easy to stroll around Yorkeys to the shops, marina (beautiful meals and views) and golf course...

Friends in Vic suggested York Apartments as a good place to stay, they were right. The location was great, beach across the road, convenient breakfast spot 100m away. We did swim in the beach stinger net but the York Apartments pool became our fav spot, big enough for laps and water quality was spot on. The apartments are spacious and...

Escaping the cooler Australian weather last year we found this fantastic place just 15 minutes from Cairns. Our stay was made more memorable thanks to the efforts of managers Karen & Graham. Their advice was spot on and nothing was too much trouble, such as assisting with a hire car to encouraging our boys to help with the feeding of...

We arrived in Cairns for 5 days holiday as part of a tour of South East Asia & Australia. We wanted pure relaxation, hired a car for a few hours to find somewhere to stay. Saturday, we cruised the beaches looking - Quiet Eliis, trendy Trinity & Palm Cove but then we had breakfast on beach front at Yorkeys, made...

My boyfriend and I vacationed in Yorkey's Knob/ Cairns region in July 2009. After researching hotels and apartments online, we decided to stay at The York and were not disappointed! The location is fantastic...right on the Esplanade, directly across the street from one of the last quiet, local beaches in that area. You have nice restaurants and shops within walking...

We stayed for a week at the York Apartments. Yorkey's Knob is about 20 minutes drive from Cairns. It is quiet and the apartments are literally across the (very quiet) road from the beach. Some of the apartments need a bit of attention (just fading paintwork etc.) but they were clean, reasonably priced and a good place to stay. It...

The York Apartments, fully functional and spacious apartments. Ideally located on the esplanade opposite the beach. Its a low key affair and very casual. The accommodation I felt was not equal to its advertised 4.5 stars. More like 3. The managers are fantastic and very friendly, and happy to organise trips etc,. The cleaning of the apartments could be better,...
