“Awesome place to stay”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

The City Sheridan is a great place to stay and the staff is nice and very helpful. I've been coming to Cairns on and off for a few years now and I always stay here. The job Chris and Alisha have done on renovating and upgrading the place is amazing.

The rooms are always clean and comfortable. In approximately 30 visits, I've never had an issue with ants and I've especially never seen a roach. The food in the bar is great and a great value for the price. They have a chef named Eddy who is supurb and really knows his business.

I find that the walk to city center takes no more than 10 - 15 minutes. I don't have a problem with it since what else am I there for but to walk around and see the sights. I can easily make it to Cairns Central or the ocean in 10 - 12 minutes.

I will definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Although some people don't like the fact that there is no elevator, I personally don't mind...

I stayed at this hotel in mid June. Very helpful reception. Spacious and clean rooms. I was with my brother and we booked a double room, which had two comfortable beds. One was bigger than another though. Nice balcony/patio, where you can have breakfast or drink beer at night. Free wi-fi. We enjoyed occasional swimming in a pool in the backyard. Overall, great hotel.
However, it takes 15 minutes-walk to get to the downtown. You need even more time to get to the Cairns port. So if you booked a tour departing really early from the port, it is better to call a taxi in advance, as it was hard for us to find available taxis at street.

Room Tip: If you want to have a great breakfast, there is a good restaurant/eatery nearby called "Byblos...

We stayed at this hotel in early january. We arrived at 10am from our flight to Cairns and the hotel already had a room ready for us. Very friendly staff and so helpful with information on the area and tours. Good location, only a few blocks to town. Nice and quiet on the backside of the hotel. The room was a good size with a fridge, nice little pool to get refreshed in and breakfast was excellent in the restaurant. I would definetely stay here again and the price was very good. We also really appreciated the free wi fi .

Room Tip: Get a room on the back because it fronts the main street into Cairns

Wonderful helpful staff, very spacious room with comfy bed, flat screen tv, microwave, fridge, air con and good sized ensuite with shower. Free wifi throughout hotel and rooms a real bonus especially as in Australia there is normally a limit or you have to pay. Restaurant on site that served breakfast and dinner. Laundry room, pool and computer with printer for use too (no charge!!)
Only negative is the distance from centre of town - about a 25-30 minute leisurely walk. No prob at all if you have a car. Bit the price was so good this is the compromise we made :) overall a really good hotel!

Upon arrival it seemed things would go alright, but after a couple of nights we were ready to leave. The location is definately NOT a "short, ten minute walk to city's center" as we were told and certainly is not safe at night. The parking lot is small and open to the street, so I was uneasy about leaving my vehicle there, as there is no one to watch the parking lot at night (and there is a lot of foot traffic after dark). The receptionist was friendly, but did get a bit huffed trying to do too many things at once, definately shouldnt have to leave the desk for the restaurant or to be a porter. Had dinner at the restaurant and although the food was good, it took an unusual length of time for it to come to the table. What made it even worse was the owners were also having dinner and drinks with friends, having a great time and getting their dinner before ours, even though we had been waiting! That was a disappointment. As far as cleanliness, the stairs to our room were very dirty and cobwebs in about every corner, our bathroom was very hairy...but I took care of that myself, why bother the housekeeping when they didnt do it in the first place? Maybe my standards are too high. All in all I am not too sure how this place became a Best Western...maybe BW should do random inspections.

Room Tip: I would choose another hotel.
