Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   This resort is not walking distance to the main city area and wharf so we had to use Uber a lot to get around. The local buses aren't frequent and the hotel didn't have a shuttle. I'm not sure if all the rooms are the same, but the room I booked didn't have a bath tub and that was a bit of a disappointment. The bar and snack area by the pool could have better hours.

Review:   The Cairns Colonial Club is a reasonably priced place to stay whilst visiting Cairns. It is a fair way out of town so would suit people who have hire cars or tour groups on buses. It has everything you need in a hotel, an average restaurant, a little store, a number of swimming pools etc. It is a little long in the tooth these days though. Looks and feels like it could do with a refurbishment. They do give out vouchers for free wifi here and claim it works in your room, but I find it to be patchy at best and really only useful in the lobby. Overall a decent place to stay, but if you are looking for something more modern I would look elsewhere.

Review:   Room was fine, but this place is way out of town. Guests are stuck with one restaurant as there is nothing in the vicinity. The hotel is huge and was full of Asiaian and Indian tour groups We walked after one night, forfieted three nights payment and moved downtown to a decent hotel near the ocean and downtown. Money well spent. This place should be avoided.

Review:   Stayed here on a weeknight. We discovered that there was no water available to our room (we were told this was due to a "council fault"). We were not told this at check in. As our water bottles were empty, and we had no other drinking water, we asked if bottled water was available, and we were told that there was and someone would deliver it to our room. After an hour with no water being delivered we went to reception to ask again - they then advised us that they had no bottled water (contradicting earlier advise). We then called reception again later that night and were told that if we bought cash they could open up the shop for us to buy our own bottled water (contradicting again what we had been told). We were then told that there was water on elsewhere in the facility (not sure why if there was a council fault?) and we ended up taking our own water bottle for a refill from a tap near reception. Meanwhile, our room was located between multiple school groups and we were kept awake until about 11 pm by teenagers running around the complex. Could not leave window open as air conditioners from other rooms were too loud. All in all, we had a terrible night with no drinking water and were very glad to check in the next day to a nearby hotel that had running water and was quiet (and had staff that were willing to help). Pools were nice.

Review:   Great place but seems to have outlived itself. There are many features that are mo longer being used around the resort. Could do with a little makeover and it would be back to it's glory days!
