Checked in on the ninth April for five nights. Rooms were very tired and not clean our bed covers were dirty, floors had been swept but the sweepings were under the tv unit! The bath was disgusting and sink and bath taps were broken. Asked for things to be put right but it never was and we couldn't change rooms... More

The air-conditioner in the unit and bedroom is EXTREMELY NOISY and impossible to sleep with it on, but too HOT not to have it on. The unit faced the... More

We stayed at the CitySider apartments for theee nights in February 2015 as we toured Cairns and vicinity. It is well situated in the sense that it was walkable distance to the Cairns Esplanade where most of the attractions and restaurants are located, and where the fleet terminal is located. Both David and Peter (at the reception) as well as... More

We stayed here late November, early December for 5 nights. We had a very nice time, the apartment was spacious and well lighted. Not the most updated (pool didn't look appealing at all, water was green) but ok for what we needed. What it lacked in luxury it made up in friendly helpful staff. Valter was very helpful ,he helped... More

The apartment was lovely, comfortable, spacious, very clean and had everything you needed in it's well equipped kitchen. The complex itself is well maintained, has a great pool/bbq area and Walter provides very friendly service should you need it. We would... More

The two bedroom apartment had plenty of room with all the necessities required. The gardens are kept beautiful & pool was lovely to relax by. Walter was very... More

For our annual fishing trip four of us stayed at the Citysider cairns from 29th November to 6th December. This is not the first time we have stayed here and it is testament to the hosts that we decided that we would stay there again. Once again we were not disappointed as the room had been repainted (we stayed in... More

Only here 2 nights, looking forward to a longer stay next time. These apartments are a great 'home away from home'. Everything was clean and tidy, spacious rooms, pleasant decor, well-equipped kitchen, convenient laundry facilities in the bathroom. Best of all - very friendly and helpful managers!
