We have always raved on about our favourite B&B in the southern hemisphere in Cape Town and now we have found one to rival it. Steve and Robyn could not do more to make you feel special and well looked after. Plus the bonus that they are such lovely company. Their suggestions for places to eat were spot on, their... More

Wonderful Hosts, Robyn and Steve have a lovely B&B on the edge of the rain forest. Charming, yummy B&B across the street from the Botanical Gardens of Carins. We extended our stay because it was so wonderful. Very close to airport and walking distance to restaruants. Best breakfast in Australia. Hope to come back.

We've stayed here a few times now and the hosts Robyn and Steve are the most obliging and helpful people that just want your stay to be memorable. Ideally located opposite the Botanic Gardens, close to transport, airport and walking distance to restaurants and shops, although I'd recommend a car to take advantage of what's on offer around Cairns. Beautiful... More

This has now been our third stay at The Garden Gate. We love it and find it a great way to get away from the cold winters and frosts in North East Vic. Robyn and Steve are fabulous hosts who just can't do enough for you to make sure you enjoy every moment of your holiday experience in Cairns. They... More

We felt like every good deed we'd ever done in life had been rewarded getting to stay with Robyn and Steve in their beautiful home. They seem to make a hobby of spoiling their guests from start to finish. They do it with such joy, too. The harmony they share is undeniable and inspiring. The rest of the reviews on... More

We stayed with Robyn and Steve in August. This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast conveniently located to many attractions. You really don't need a car to get around. The accommodations were first rate. We had the downstairs to ourselves which included the bedroom en suite bathroom, a common area that had a kitchenette. Robyn and Steve were a delightful... More

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
