Have stayed previously in a 1 BR unit which suited our needs admirably, this time we went for a 2BR unit as our son was coming up to see us. Plenty of room, privacy and peace. My son would normally stay on the Esplanade but he made the comment "why would I look for anything else", that just about sums... More

City Terraces is in a very convenient situation in Cairns. It is a very quiet place to stay and everyone is very helpful and friendly. Good safe car parking. We have stayed here on six different occasions. When booking, go straight to City Terraces.

The managers of the hotel did all they could to make our stay comfortable. We arrived on an early flight and they did their best to get our rooms ready as soon as possible. They were very pleasant and had a huge range of knowledge about the area and best days to go on different tours (although we had already... More

We spent 4 nights there. The Owners, Phil and Cheryl were very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were excellent and very spacious. We had a separate bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen / living room area as well as a great balcony overlooking the pool. The parking garage was under the hotel and very secure. The location was fabulous. Various activities... More

I spent two weeks in Cairns on business, and the one bedroom self contained unit is perfect for me. City Terraces is 5 minutes from Cairns Central Shopping Centre, and also within walking distance to the Esplanade. It's surprisingly quiet and the rooms are recently done up. The bedroom, bathroom and the living area is quite spacious. The unit I... More

From initial check in to departure, the piece of mind not to mention the service was outstanding . On a very short list the location, the service and the facility get a sincere " would definitely stay again" rating
