I arranged for a late check-in, after front-desk hours. I was traveling alone. If you check in after front-desk hours, be aware that the check-in is outside, and the neighborhood feels a little sketchy. You use a phone outside to call an after hours service, the service gives you information to access a safe with your key and room information.... More

Clean rooms serviced everyday, staff were very friendly and the restaurant was very good too, yummy food and a very good price too Good location close enough to town and right across from shopping centre and really good pub. Good price to stay here! It's better than some of the places I've stayed double to stay in.

I chose this hotel as it was close to a conference center where I had to go, it was clean and reasonable budget accommodation. The pool needed a good clean and the old air conditioner was very noisey to have operating during the night. Nice restaurant and bar available. The hair dryer was ancient and didn't work, however they did... More

Following a long car journey to Cairns for my wedding I booked this place that all seemed ok and nice online when booking. From the start one thing after another! Nowhere on the website when booking does it state that they will not accept a VISA DEBIT card as a credit card security deposit (other major hotel chains have no... More

We stayed 3 nights at Cairns Southside, two nights on our arrival in Cairns before beginning our camping trip and again on our last night in Cairns before flying home. Since we were driving, we were able to choose accommodation a few km away from the city centre, in a quieter location but still less than 10 minutes from the... More

Stayed 4 nights. Very friendly staff, will help you with all your questions and give you great suggestions for things to do etc. The place is a bit outdated and it is a motel, the restaurant is good. It is about 10min from the esplanade and the port where the cruises leave. Great value for the money.

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid August and I was not disappointed. You are situated about a 15 minute bus ride from the main marina but you save a fortune for this. There is a bus stop right out the front so it isn't a problem whatsoever. Means you have money to spend on awesome activities instead of incredibly... More
