Located away from the town center, but close enough if you have a car. The Motel was clean and pleasant upon arrival. My double queen room was spacious for one (or two) but it would be a bit tight for anymore than that. Quick check in, the minimal dealings I had with staff were pleasant. The bed was comfortable, bathroom...

I visited Cairns at the behest of an Australian friend. I was here for a week's stay in 1998. The tropics of Australia are awesome... Kanniss Restaurant is awesome. It is truly a different type of being Down Under! Summer year 'round. Great Barrier Reef just minutes away.

Spent a couple of nights here on work - it's fine. The rooms are clean and functional - though the bed is really soft. Breakfast was very basic - and while I didn't have a chance to try the restaurant for dinner, I heard it was really good. Location is ok...if you're heading somewhere else. Otherwise, it's part of a...

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)...

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...

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
airns Tropical Gardens Motel and Conference Venue is the affordable choice for your travel or business accommodation, catering, entertainment or group gathering requirements. We also cater to our large north Queensland regional areas as the choice place for locals and company reps to visit during their shopping, educational and general city and industry access needs. So we have some delightful 'local chats' happening on the verandahs on many balmy evenings. We have 53 suites which include both motel and self contained apartment style accommodations, all of which lead onto Queensland style wrap around verandahs where you can relax, unwind and experience the Queensland tropics during your stay. Off street parking for cars, trailers and larger vehicles is freely available on site. Our function and conference rooms cater for a range of events from company and local meetings, training courses, trade displays to private dining and social or group events. Our poolside breakfast patio is also a great alfresco style venue for small groups to meet and discuss business matters to kick start the week's targets over a freshly cooked Australian breakfast. Cairns Tropical Gardens Motel is conveniently located approx 2km south of the hustle and bustle of Cairns central. A short stroll to the new DFO shopping plaza (approx. 140 Direct Factory shopping Outlets) and the Cazaly Football Club for your sports and entertainment pleasures. ... more   less
