We had the pleasure to stay at Cairns Tropical Gardens Motel recently and can not speak more highly of the friendly personal service and kindness shown to us during this time. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. The units are a bit tired and are in need of a refurbishment but for us (2 families in the 2 'family' rooms)... More

I wanted a night at a basic motel upon my arrival in Cairns before hitting the road. This motel is well located to shops and supermarkets and fulfilled that role. My unit was back off the main road and it was quiet. The room was well supplied and was clean. They also do not charge ridiculous prices for drinks from... More

A friend and I booked in on spec while on an overnight business trip. On arrival, we found the staff efficient and friendly. Our breakfast arrived on time and was sumptuous. The motel is situated only 3klm from the city and 10 mins from the airport. It is 2 mins walk to a large entertainment venue (ARL Club) which also... More

We booked a twin room for one night only. Our arrival heralded friendliness and efficiency. Our room was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. The motel location is only 2k from the city centre and almost next door to the extremely hospitable and welcoming Cazaly's Rugby League Club. You are only 10 mins from the international airport. As per the... More

We booked into this motel because it was close to a friends gym in Cairns, on booking we requested a travel cot for our 15 month old. We got to the motel and went to our room to put out daughter down as we had timed our travel for her sleep. There was no travel cot so we went back... More

The arrival was friendly but the room was ordinary. The air-conditioning was noisy, cupboard doors were cracked from moisture and there was mold around the wall above the shower. The bed was saggy. The sign out the front indicated there was a sauna but I couldn't find one. It also indicated a spa but I couldn't find that either. There... More

We stayed here for one night over a busy weekend and found the staff very helpful and the location great for what we needed, but the rooms are quite dated and pretty basic, nothing to write home about here, very average. In the end it was good for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't want to be here for much... More

Only stayed here overnight for the Eclipse. Agree with the previous review. Rooms are a little dated but spacious. Loved the quiet nook in the garden adjacent to RM 205! However must make special mention of friendly check in on 13th. Arrived there early, and was advised that check-in is 1Pm. Staff member (unfortunately did not get her name) offered... More
