I stayed at the Cairns Colonial Club resort again for business on 17 March 2015. I booked online through their website and, for $118.00 for the night (midweek) and including full buffet breakfast I got an upgrade to a large room with a view of one of the smaller, but more private swimming pools. I like this place because it... More

Lovely clean resort, great for those traveling on a budget. Good buffet breakfast, friendly staff and beautifully landscaped pool. Rooms were very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. Reasonably close to everything however you would not want to be staying there without a car unless willing to catch a cab. Would stay again if ever in cairns.

We stayed here four nights while visiting cairns. While the grounds are very nice - lush with pools and flowers, the rooms are tired. Half the time our facets in the bath did not work. Towels are thin and the cleaning of the rooms was quick and out of there. I think the cleaning staff had other things on their... More

Excellent resort in the town rather than the sea, and it is better for that. The swimming pools, tennis courts etc are excellent and provide for a self contained holiday. There is a choice of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisine separate to the main dining area that provides breakfast.
