We stayed 3 nights at citysider apartments. Overall the price was excellent and the apartment was clean and tidy on arrival. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our visit. They helped book us a trip to kuranda with only a couple of hours notice. There was tea and coffee sachets which were enough for us for our trip.... More

Excellent place with very friendly, helpful management. Spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), good A/C, nice pool, good bbq area. Very clean and well managed. It is not in the immediate centre of town, so food shopping requires 15 mins of walking one way. Also, the Kuranda train provides the morning alarm clock, which I thought was just fine.... More

Very clean apartment. Love the kitchen set up as it has everything I need to cook for my small family especially my 7months old baby. Also staff at the reception is very helpful in calling the taxi when asked. My family and I have enjoyed our stay here and definitely looking forward to go back in December 2015. ANNA BARTHO...

We stayed 2 weeks in a one bedroom Citysider apartment late July, early August. The apartment was clean, roomy and very functional. We did some self catering and everything needed was there. The service was very good. One kitchen appliance broke during our stay and was replaced immediately. The location was ideal, being close to the Cairn's CBD. Reception was... More

This property has ample space and is quite convenient to the main strip. Unfortunately we were allocated a top floor apartment and this entailed lugging our cases up several flights of stairs as there were no ramps or lifts. The place is for sale no doubt because its starting to show its age (dripping taps and aged appliances for examples)s

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

Stayed here recently whilst visiting my son in Cairns. We were in Unit 12 the main part of the unit was nice, but the main bedroom furniture is tired and marked. 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
