My base in Cairns every time! Room to park a larger vehicle; staff who have been there for a long time and enjoy their work, fantastic older gardens and great family pools that kids love. It all works! The restaurant is fairly basic for breakfast, but always consistant with great staff. It just works!

The room was quite large but very spartan. There was noise from outside during the night and very early morning. This motel has hundreds of units and I got lost looking for mine a few times. I couldn't park close because of the size of the property so had quite a way to carry my luggage. It boasted that it...

The Colonial Club was lovely, My daughter got married in the gazebo in a beautiful tropical setting which was followed by her reception. The staff at the reception were all very helpful and we had no problems with anything. The food was simply amazing. The accommodation, although basic was very clean and well priced, and we had a most enjoyable...

Problems from the start! On-line booking very misleading regarding breakfast which was only continental. When queried this at reception attendant's attitude somewhat rude. Paid for upgraded room, would have hate to have seen state of standard room - tired, shabby and could have been cleaner. Very noisy timber sections in verandas when other guests leaving early in morning which disturbs...

A very basic place. It needs a big overhaul to get it up to a reasonable standard. The pool looks great, but the boards surrounding it are very uneven, split, and need replacing or repairing. The outdoor chairs are split and uncomfortable, and the casual dining area around the pool needed a big clean up. The floor was dirty grubby...

A little disappointed that we weren't told that the daily complimentary breakfast was for only cold foods. You had to pay extra per head if you wanted hot foods for breakfast. Food at restaurant ok, but customer service is excellent and rooms were well kept every day that we were there.
