I had stayed at the Colonial Club many years ago and decided it would be a good location to take the family, mainly due to the three pools that were onsite. I am pleased to say that our stay here was very enjoyable and the kids had a ball. From the airport the best option is a cab for around...

Location not great. Reminded me of 1960s Butlins camp. Room very basic - gaps around the doors that baby lizards came through. Pool area was lovely. Didn't use the restaurant. Notices up saying wifi was $5 an hour so I left it until the last night to buy a voucher so I could check in for my flight only to...

Was doing an overnight en-route to PNG, so needed to be on the north side of town, and the Colonial Club was the one. A good choice. Dropped off by bus to the hotel in the afternoon, met the rest of the team over dinner, before bed and then an early (dark) start the next day. Used the pool, but...

However, they have signs along the paths. there are 02 swimming pools I think.They have large comfortable rooms for persons with reduced mobility like myself. The breakfast is excellent.

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...
