    Ok value for money
    It was ok value for money. The check in was not very welcoming and I also only learned about the times for airport shuttles then as this was the main reason for booking the hotel. The local area seemed slightly dodgy and I still found wine screw caps in the room upon arrival. The shower also took about 10 minutes to generate hot water in the mornings.

    Poor 2.0
    Nit worth staying
    The room was disgusting. Cob webs everywhere, showerhead requiring a plumber to fix the dripping water and hair on the shower base that was not clean. Breakfast was every average. Would not stay there again and not worth the nightly rate i paid.

    Exceptional 10.0
    As requested I was given a lower floor room as my mother has mobility issues. The room was well appointed with all the required amenities. The hot buffet breakfast exceeded my expectations, scrambled egg, sausages, mushrooms, potato gems, cereal, toast, percolated coffee, juices and more. Noise was not an issue when the doors were closed, and we slept well. Thank you Crystal Gardens for a most enjoyable stay.

    No Flash, but nice
    It was a great base of operation for us, near the airport and the sites that we were going to see north of Cairns. The rooms were clean and the staff very accommodating, however the overall place could use an update. I felt it was a good value.
