Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

City Terraces was in a great location for us, easily walkable to all the main sights, convenient for tour pick up and with dedicated managers Will and Lyn to boot. You can tell that they have put a lot of thought into what makes a guest comfortable away from home and little touches such as the freecycle section and library were utilised by us and it was great to be able to leave behind items we bought but could not consume. I was also taken by how neat their recycling and bin areas were when we went down on our last night. Yes, the place is aging in spots and yes issues do happen, however we were impressed by how quickly reported issues were rectified and overall, you can tell Will and Lyn take pride in providing a great product, this is visible in the upkeep of all areas of the property. Thank you for providing a 5* stay, we will be recommending that our friends and family consider City Terraces when visiting Cairns.

I have mixed feelings about this property. We stayed 4 nights and, while overall the experience was quite good, there’s a lot that could be improved upon. We were supplied with one teeny-weeny bar of soap to service both shower and hand basin (no shower gel), although the manager readily supplied more when I asked. The TV in our bedroom was not working, for which he apologised. The kitchen was quite well equipped, but there were bits and pieces of crockery, cutlery and glassware, with not much of it matching. The floors throughout the apartment are in need of a deep clean and the complex as a whole is in need of a makeover. That said, the apartment was comfortable, with a good-sized balcony (ours overlooking the lovely pool) and we had everything we needed. It was quiet and conveniently located to Cairns Central, Rusty’s Markets and the Esplanade. We were particularly grateful for the complimentary bike use. We only dealt with Will, not Lyn, but he was always friendly and helpful.

Responded 19 Nov 2023
Thank you for your review. Sorry we hadn't removed the old TV from the bedroom, but there was a new TV in the living-room, and all the other 1 bedroom apartments only have 1 TV, not 2, as I did explain to you on check-in. We have refurbished most of our apartments, which we tend to give to our higher paying direct bookers. Your apartment is due for a refurbishment, but I am sure you will agree the common areas, pool and gardens are well maintained. I'm glad you made use of our free share bicycles. We have put in place many green initiatives and are accredited with ecoTourism Australia as well as being an eco-biz star partner. I agree, you got good value for money for what you paid. Kind regards, Will (manager)

We stayed here for 6 nights as we were attending a wedding in Palm Cove. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. The complex was quiet, the pool was lovely and the apartment was spacious. I liked how they were environmentally conscious. It was easy to walk to the supermarkets and also the centre of town and the foreshore. Everything we needed was there. Highly recommend.

Lovely apartment, close to be able to walk to the Esplanade and supermarket. The area was quiet and safe. We made use of the complimentary bikes to ride to the beautiful botanical gardens. We would stay here again.

The staff was wonderful! I had an incident at check in and the reception was ever so understanding. I won't go into the details but just trust me - they think about your needs first! The wifi was pretty good. We had good quality sleep throughout our stay. The kitchen was well-equipped. We also enjoyed snacking and having breakfast on the balcony, which overlooked the swimming pool. If I had to be picky, the bathroom ventilation was quite noisy. Also when I entered the unit for the first time, there was a slight smell (I'm guessing must be accumulated food smell from the kitchen), but it disappeared after the air con was switched on.

Stayed here for 8 nights. Very friendly helpful reception from Shelly when we arrived. Apartment was spacious and well equipped. Pool area also really nice. Everything spotlessly clean. Borrowed a couple of bikes for a day. Will was super helpful and v friendly as was Lyn. 10 - 15 minute walk to the Esplanade so you are nice and close but don’t get all the noise. Great value for money and would highly recommend. Had a nice family feel to it.

Great value stay in the centre of cairns. Only one block from cairns central and four blocks from the esplanade. The hotel staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We had a two bedroom for two adults and two small kids and we had more space than we needed. Great property!
