        • City is excellent and s budget price for family to stay here and have beautiful pool. Staff here are fantastic and and VERY good air conditioning. Beers and food at the poolside restaurant/bar is decent.

          Not being able to park our car near our room and the location is not the best for activites. The facility is getting a little dated.

        • The location was very convenient for us because we had a hire car and the hotel probably was great in the 70's. The lobby was setup like a fancy resort and was quite roomy, staff were excellent, rooms were refurbished and were very modern and clean. Kitchen was good and rate included cooked breakfast. The swimming pools were wonderful.

          Ridiculous fees for everything, the matress on the bed was old.

        • Pool areas are amazing, com does not charge the resort charged us for 2 nights the cost Bookeds and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are decent and the onsite snack bar is ideal and the breakfast buffet is a good value. Nice facilities include spa.

          Location is not great unless you have a car, the lobby is open to tour buses that sit idling for ages and is very noisy and chaotic.

        • In great tropical surroundings and atmosphere very good. Just loved the older style room, friendly staff and oh and the water in the pools warm. The tour desk was helpful as well and meals were excellent.

          The loss of free airport transfers, gardens in some places were in need of a tidy and bed was small and a bit lumpy. The toilet made a horrible noise flushed and the food was awful.

        • The surroundings were lovely and the lady in the store was nice. The very relaxed atmosphere was a change for new year's eve and loved the location of the room and the interior of the room was great. Staff were very helpful, facilities were good except there was no mirror above the wash basin in the bathroom and breakfast buffet was definitely worth the money.

          The loss of the free bus service into the city and the swimming pools are ample and the town is fairly local. The dining area is also noisy and chaotic, we had to shoulder our way to the food, Cairns is not the best that Australia has to offer. Poor air conditioning.

        • Great surroundings & facilities and the hourly bus shuttle to town is very useful. Cairns colonial club friendly, staff are fantastic and rooms are fair sized and clean. Restaurants are very good, the pool is lovely.

          Smelly fermenting mangoes rotting by the car park and bit scary walking around the area at night. The hotel is large and the internet is kind of expensive. The choice of meals could be increased and the buffet breakfast is overpriced.
