Susy in reception very helpful and picked us up straight away from airport. Apartments very basic and tired looking but beds felt/looked clean. Outside of the rooms it was dirty with green algae/mould growing everywhere. Breakfast had the basic scrambled eggs/bacon/cereal/toast but not good quality food. Right next to train line and seem to be on flight path too, quiet... More

The hotel is located on the northern side of Cairns so the airport is only a short hop away. I drove from the south and though it has been many years since I visited Cairns I had no difficulty finding the place. The hotel and facilities aren't new, but the place is well kept with an inviting pool,and a large... More

We just wanted a place to overnight on our way up to the cape and the Crystal gardens motel was just right. Big comfy bed and clean facilities with a continental breakfast included. About 30 min walk to the night markets where you can get a great variety of meals.

Stayed 3 nights to explore Queensland. If one is not expecting any luxury, great location to explore GB Reef, Port Douglas, Kuranda. Extremely helpful staff. Facilities are basic but clean. Breakfast is below average.

Stayed in here for 2 nights. Clean and tidy room, friendly and very helpful staff, great location—not too far from the central, love the breakfast as well. Me and my bf too busy doing thing outside so we dont have time to complaint. Its all good.

The reception lady was very pleasant, the place is okay. If you are not fussed about nice things then you wont mind staying here. The bathroom door didnt close properly and the table and worktop areas were heavily worn and in need of replacement. Its just a bit tired and ready for someone to spend some money on it like...

This hotel would have to be one of the worst we have stayed in. As we arrived there was no reception for some time. We had a to go to the kitchen to find someone to assist us with check in. The room smelt so strongly of White King when we arrived we had to leave the front and back... More
