We have had the most marvellous 10 day holiday at Jack & Newell Apartments. The apartment is well appointed, clean & modern, very comfortable. The location is perfect in downtown Cairns with a beautiful view of the river and Trinity outlet. Being around the corner on Wharf Street means it is quiet, no downtown noise. We stayed in and cooked...

The rooms although a bit older are spotless and large! We had a 3 bedroom apartment. I agree with all the reviews that it felt more like full service. The front desk staff made recommendations and bookings for us the 3 nights we were there. They could not have been more helpful. The location is perfect to walk to everything!...
