I reasonable hotel to stay at. Its showing its age. Close enough to airport and a taxi ride to Cairns city. Nothing special. The evening meals were good and tasty. Rooms are showing their age, but were clean. Staff friendly

This hotel lies somewhere between budget and luxury hotel. Prices very reasonable. The gardens and facilities are excellent. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable, but a little dated and soon will require attention. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I watched one receptionist dealing with a very difficult customer and she was extremely professional. I had two... More

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
