Cairns Colonial Club Resort

Hotel in Cairns

Cairns Colonial Club Resort has affordable accommodations, 10 minutes’ drive from the city center and Cairns Airport. It features 3 lagoon-style pools, and a man-made beach. Impeccable and impressive hotel. The room was very large, with 2 huge beds. New and impeccable bathroom. Every day they made the room. There is a jug of water to make coffee / tea. Very useful the refrigerator. You also have an iron and ironing board in the room. There is laundry (under payment) at the hotel, and they work perfectly and everything is very clean. Wifi very good in the room. The breakfast was very varied and replenished as it ends. The hotel pools were very nice, as were its gardens. The hotel staff was the best, all very friendly and they helped you in whatever you asked for, but above all I have to thank Paula's attention, at reception, when the last day I had a problem with Sun Palm, that they had to pick me up to go to the airport and they did not show up. Paula was so kind that she called Sun Palm and solved the problem. When they treat you like that, it's nice. I hope that the hotel in some way rewards its employees for their good service to customers. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Cairns. Everything is facilities. As I said, I had never found a hotel that is perfect. This one is.
