Once again stayed at this place while starting or transiting through Cairns. Now taken over by IBIS but still the same good economic accommodation in Cairns. Not a CBD/waterfront resort but has good, clean, modern standard rooms; great pool and associated sunning lounges and bar/snacks. The central dining area is spacious and handles breakfast and dinners. Both are excellent and not expensive. Not within walking distance of CBD and associated restaurants but they have a transfer service if you want it. We were happy to eat-in. Place has vast accommodation capacity and seems to cater for conference groups. We haven't struck one yet and if we did the place would be a touch crowded. However, with just tourists the place is great. Plan to use Colonial again shortly with a post midnight resort pickup from the international airport. Lets hope the transfer happens otherwise my next report might be nasty. My only complaint with this resort is the long walk from room to reception/dining with luggage. Not a major problem as long as your bag has wheels.
