The B&B is beautifully located in Edge Hill. Your perfect breakfast will be served on the terrace with a wonderful view on the city and the surrounding scenery. Marlis & Bruno are very kind hosts and always willing to help, e.g. we'd a late check-in and Marlis was so kind to drive us to the next still open restaurant. As...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Marlies and Bruno were perfect hosts! They knew a lot of the surroundings and wildlife, they helped us with all phone calls needed and gave us good advice concerning things to do or rental cars. Their nice and comfortable location lies on a hill side (Edge Hilll) and is due to the breeze that blows mostly a bit cooler and...

Location was fantastic - Edge Hill is a vibrant community and the proximity to the Botanical Gardens was perfect. The owners were very hospitable and the tropical breakfast they offer is a wonderful way to begin the day. Very peaceful, you really feel that you are in the rainforest and the view is wonderful. The only downside is that it...

Marlies and Bruno were very kind. Been to a Concert in the evening and asked for some chairs - no problem :-) Also helped us by reconfirmations. Breakfast while overlooking Cairns - wonderful. This location is so peaceful. We stayed there a few days and on the way back, at the end of our trip, we had our last night...

Very charming hosts Marlies & Bruno tried everything to make our stay unfortgettable. Late arrival without any problem, top-notch breakfast, only minutes away from the airport. Very intimate atmosphere where you can feel that this is their passion. If we ever will return, this will be our No.1 choice in Cairns!

I had a lovely stay here, but too brief. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating... I need to mail something there and they said that was fine, I needed a ride to the airport and they gave me a ride for a price cheaper than a taxi, I have food allergies and they altered my breakfast a bit...

Great bed&breakfast, nice, clean rooms and great view over the city (I had one of the rooms in the upper building, so the view from my balcony was lovely). The breakfast was really delicious with everything you can wish for - including fresh fruit, cheese and cereals (and as much coffee as you like). The view from the terrace where...

Excellent accommodations, great view especially while eating breakfast on the deck. Marlies and Bruno are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. It is a good walk from town so Marlie dropped us off at the bus. Great impression of Cairns and the people that live there!
