The Cairns Colonial Club resort is set within its own gardens. After checking in and walking 5 minutes through the gardens to my room, I immediately felt relaxed. The green surrounds, the lush garden beds, the "beach" and the 3 pools truly made me feel in paradise. Whilst the rooms weren't modern, they were certainly large enough and I even...

This is an old style resort in a very tropical setting. Very relaxed atmosphere clean comfortable and attentive staff. Food is not bad but lacking a pastry chef to provide inviting desserts. Extensive buffet breakfast which would suit all tastes. Very popular with group tourists.

Room was in dire need of maintenance due to age I think but they are apparently starting to renovate. Gardens are nice even with the water restrictions and pool...

We stayed here recently for three nights using it mainly as a base whilst doing some day trips around Cairns. The property and grounds are nice with the swimming pools nicely laid out. Yes the property is a little dated - it could use a fresh coat of paint but I personally think it was absolutely fine for the price...

The motel caters for the large tour...

I arrived quite late and left quite early so a very quick stay. Chose this place as it had okay reviews but was very affordable. Car parking was also free and easy to find coming from the airport. I was fortunate to be upgraded to a larger room - in fact it was huge! Large bathroom with spa, balcony which...

We stayed at the resort with my family and it was absolutely amazing! The lagoon style pool was fantastic an the kids loved the underground spa behind the waterfall! The whole resort was so clean, buffet breakfast was fresh and there are tropical gardens everywhere! The staff was impeccable, highly recommended!
