Crystalbrook Riley

Hotel in Cairns

Centrally located at the northern end of Cairns iconic waterfront Esplanade, Crystalbrook Riley features 311 stylish rooms and suites, three restaurants and bars including Cairns’ highest rooftop bar,... I loved that the hotel had so enviromentally friendly things as paper water bottles, curboard clothes hangers, etc. I loved a morning gown that was made of linen, so soft, comfortable and beautiful - a piece of art (I ended up buying one from them 😉). The hotel upgraded us to a Panoramic view to the sea and the Mountains, so beautiful! The breakfast was excellent with so many healthy choices. We loved our stay there!

In general the staff created a very relaxing stay.
