Owner's Response: Hi Pri - Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at Grosvenor in Cairns. Our housekeepers take great pride in making sure all the apartments are thoroughly clean for guests when they arrive. Yes, we are a 3 story 'walk-up' (developers have to put elevators in building that are 4 story's or higher which is why they build 3 story apartment buildings) .... but we are always available to help guests with luggage etc and if a guest specifically requests a ground floor apartment then we always attempt to provide them with that. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us - Brian
