Cairns Southside International
Ranked #56 of 63 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Comfortable and clean accommodation with plenty of soothing blues in the decor in this well located motel style units. Pool is cool, laundry facilities and plenty of off street parking with undercover spots available. All you need for setting off to see the sights around Cairns. Mostly families staying there and good range of sightseeing options advertised in the lobby.Staff very friendly and interested in helping guests feel at home and obliging of any request made.

we stayed 2 nights, pre booked. The booking was for 3 people, there were 2 towels, 2 cups, 2 tea bags, no teaspoons.
Our balcony was accessed by the next room as well. They were smokers, we could not leave our balcony door open to get fresh air as they were smoking and it filtered into the room, the non-smoking room.
We had no privacy as they would go to and from for a smoke at all hours.
Our air con was so loud and rattly, we turned it off, but we could not open balcony door due to the next room having access, there wasn't a screen door to lock for our security either, so a stuffy sleepless night.
There was no internet access at all, we asked twice for help and both times the staff said, "that's unusual", then öh no, mines not working either.. It was a blatant lie.
The rooms are clean and of a good size and price, the rest is very disappointing.

Great price for a better than basic hotel, clean roomy rooms, well maintained, surprisingly no road noise though on main road. Pleasant helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. A pre booking request for a menu was promptly emailed to me - and the items on the were an excellent price.

Room Tip: Very equal rooms

This accommodation was very impressive and Great Value for money its close to shopping and public transport it has a restaurant within the complex and offers free WiFi prices in restaurant are very reasonable. Rooms are spacious and clean with modern fittings although not ultra modern but very good generally. We would visit again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Even roadside rooms are quiet and no road noise can be heard

We stayed one night, had room service dinner from onsite restaurant which was very tasty, our room was lovely and cool and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Less than a kilometre from Stockland shopping centre. Would recommend and stay here again.
