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.

This is a very pleasant hotel,accommodation provided in chalet type buildings. The lagoon pools were great,we enjoyed the swim up bar! Breakfast in the open air restaurant was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent tour around Australia. The hotel is outside the main centre of Cairns but it is a really nice hotel in lovely grounds. The lagoon style pools were fantastic. Staff were extremely helpful. We did get a huge cockroach in our room one day - no problem we were in the tropics... More

A sprawling place, reminiscent of a 1950s British holiday camp with chalets all over the resort. The room itself was clean and the bed was comfortable. I would like to know whose idea it was not to have a bedside table on the left hand side of the queen bed; I had to put my water glass, specs and book... More

Rooms are basic but very clean, beds are comfortable and resort staff amazing. 3 pools on offer so choice is there, and the food and service at restaurant awesome. Jack was exceptional in the restaurant. All in all had a relaxing couple of days

Needs updating badly. Not close to anything. Has own restaurant which serves good food. Service was adequate but nothing special. Rooms are very basic and in need of updating. No booklet of what they have to offer so there was a lot of back and forth to the reception. Bit expensive for what you get.

Overall our experience at the Cairns Colonial Club was great! The staff were lovely, warm and friendly at all times and made us feel welcome right away. There are 3 lagoon-style pools which each have their own distinct feel, which meant that no matter what type of atmosphere we wanted (fun and populated, quiet and tranquil etc) there was somewhere...
