Our hosts Robyn & Steve are delightful and went out of their way to make our stay fabulous. On previous trips to Cairns for business & personal trips we have always stayed in the CBD at the large hotels which were ok. This time reviewing options on Trip Adviser found The Garden Gate which looked fantastic. I am pleased to... More

The previous reviews should tell you everything you need to know. A review can not do justice to the excellence of the GG and our stay. Robyn and Steve are lovely hosts and every little detail is covered to make your stay perfect. This was the best B and B we stayed in whilst in Australia by some distance. We... More

I love love love this place. The hosts are wonderful and their service and attention to detail is a real treat without being interfering or pushy. The breakfast is to die for as is the setting on the porch over looking the garden. It is an upstairs downstairs home with guests having full and private use of the lower floor.... More

The Garden Gate is the best B&B we have stayed at in our travels. The room is spacious and beautifully appointed. You could not ask for better hosts than Robyn and Steve. The meals they prepared were wonderful and they were extremely helpful to us in planing our time in Cairns. Our wonderful time in Cairns was much due to... More

We loved this B&B! The location for us was perfect - right in the Edgehill section across the gate to the Botanical Garden and less than 10 minutes from the airport. The breakfast was incredibly delicious and varied, and the yard was a little oasis. Our room was fine and quite modern and large. But the best part were the... More

This is an awesome place to stay. Robyn & Steve were fabulous and willing to help with anything from things to see and do and what reef trips to take. The breakfasts were awesome...You will not go hungry!! And if you need to be away early on a tour Robyn & Steve will still have your breaky ready for you!!... More

Stayed a year after previous stay. Fantastic hospitality. Picked up from the airport promptly after call. Local restaurants at Edge Hill within a couple of minutes walk - Thai, Chinese, Japanese, bakery, coffee shops, pizza, local small supermarket - enough to keep you going. 10 minute bike ride to Cairns (approx 4km or a good hour walk). Lots to do... More

Honestly, we are well travelled and have stayed in fabulous places all over the world, but this has to be one of the best B & Bs we ever stayed in. I run out of superlatives. It is a lovely house, great garden, perfect location next to the botanic gardens. Robyn and Steve are wonderful people. They collected us from... More

There is absolutely no doubt in our minds, this is a wonderful B&B. Steve and Robyn are very nice and they serve a delicious breakfast. There is nothing they won't help you with. We wanted to do a reef trip and they helped us make a selection out of the hundreds of companies. They also provided towels. We didn't even... More

We were so impressed with the hospitality at The Garden Gate when we stayed last year, that we just had to go back for a second time this year. We love this B and B and more so, you couldn't meet nicer people than your hosts Robyn and Steve. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they go out... More
