My stay at the Ibis got off to a rocky start when my airport transfer (with Coral Reef Transfers) was a no-show (flight was delayed). No phone call, nothing, and since Coral Reef was closed for the day, I was left with no choice but to catch a cab. After waiting almost an hour for a taxi, I made it...

I choose this hotel because it is very close to the airport, has 24 hr reception, a lovely garden setting, excellent value for money with breakfast included and fuss free check in on arrival. There is always parking for my vehicle on site and it is located in a quiet residential area. Staff are polite and helpful. Can't get much...

We have stayed here twice before and been delighted, but this time we were a little disappointed. Standards seem to have fallen since we were last here 4 years ago and several services that were previously free ie:shuttle bus, now have a charge. Because we are smokers we booked a superior room with private terrace/garden. It was littered with bottle...

Stayed a few nights while on a recent FNQ holiday, rooms were getting on in age but clean and serviced well. Pool(s) were awesome, especially in the late November heat and humidity! Restaurant was pretty good, and included breakfast was also good. I would recommend this hotel to someone basing in Cairns and day tripping to Kuranda etc.

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...
