We would highly recommend the "Garden Gate" as the facilities are terrific - spotlessly clean, with everything you would possibly need for a comfortable & relaxing stay! Owners, Robyn & Steve, are extremely friendly & helpful, & really make you feel at home! Their breakfasts are 'to die for', especially when overlooking the lovely tropical gardens surrounding the property. You... More

My wife and I had the most wonderful time staying with Robyn and Steve for 7 nights in January, 2014, right from the moment that Robyn so kindly picked us up at the airport. The guest accommodation is on the ground floor of a Queenslander (as I learnt) and is appointed with air con, very comfortable bed, excellent shower, and... More

It was the amazing feedback from previous guests that motivated me to contact Robyn & Steve to see if my chosen dates were available at The Garden Gate in Cairns. Lucky for me they were! This accommodation was incredible from start to finish. A lovely welcome, fabulous breakfasts (different every morning and will cater for specific needs), impeccably clean, comfortable... More

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

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
