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

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

We stayed 7 nights over the busy New Year period and had a great time at the Citysider apartments. 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

We just spent 8 nights at the Citysider as a family of 4. The place is in a great location an easy walk to the restaurants or very quick drive to Esplanade. 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
