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!

Stayed here for a week as we were running a conference at the Cairns Convention Centre. Secured a 2-bedroom apartment on the ground floor, which was ideal as we were lugging equipment for the conference. These apartments are in a great spot if you have a car/transport. The rooms themselves are great and quite a good size, with a large... More

We stayed for a couple of nights and were happy with the accommodation. It was neat, tidy and spacious. It's not a very new building but it had all that we needed. Amanda and Peter are lovely people - really friendly and helpful.

I haven't stayed here before and being school holidays getting a 2 bedroom apartment was difficult. Although a little older and situated a bit further back from the Esplanade, the 2 bedroom apartment ticked all the boxes, clean, quiet, well appointed kitchen and helpful managers. Parking is off street undercover. Airconditioners are the older style units but worked well and... More

The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Pool is great and you have everything you need to self cater. One of the best things about Citysider is the couple who run it. Peter and Amanda are fabulous. They are knowledgable, friendly and put their heart and soul into making sure their guests are comfortable making it a great place to... More

Great spot for families, rooms were very clean and the managers exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Good sized pool as well. The main issue we had was that it's right next to a train line level crossing - and while there is only two trains a day, the noise of the crossing bell combined with the horn blast made it a...

Grate place to stay 15 20 min walk to main shopping center no hills but can get hot $6 one way in a taxi. All tour operators in Cairns pick up and drop off from there. Friendly management they also book tours at no extra charge. Family friendly. If you have trouble with stairs Try to request a ground floor... More
