      Staff very friendly and helpful, Lovely spacious room with patio area looking out over the pool and hot tub, Good choice of breakfast, Margret gave us some great tips on what's in the local area,

      Room large airy contential breakfast included, fantastic idea. a real incentive.

      we were not aware that the Motel was upstairs/downstairs. and we where given a upstairs room, carrying luggage and bits was a pain next time will reorganise luggage could hear people in room next door. would like mugs instead of small tea cups in room

    • Couple
      5.0

      The rooms are large and spacious. They are well equipped with tea/coffee facilities, tv, iron and large comfy beds. Free bottles of water in the fridge a nice touch. This is actually quite hard to score as the usual owners were away- I think one was unwell and the other on hols?? The couple standing-in were very pleasant, polite and helpful but it wasn't their hotel so i suspect things were a little different for our stay. they made every effort to make us welcome and the stay pleasant

      The walls are pretty thin so we could here the neighbours TV when he turned it on at 5am. The restaurant was shut during our stay. It is only a 10 minute walk to town but I would have preferred to know at the time of booking. This may not have been possible given the possible illness to owner ( see above) The breakfast is toast, cereal, fruit and hard boiled eggs. There was also rolls filled with egg and bacon pieces. The pool needed a bit of a clean and did not appear to be used v much by guests during our stay. This hotel felt a little overpriced for what was on offer

      What we liked about the Best Western Colonial Palms was the cleanliness of the whole place, the absolute comfort of the bed and the friendliness of the staff we encountered. We had spent a week at another motel immediately prior to our stay where the beds were hard and they had plastic sheets on it, only gave it a "mini" service once and didn't have the equipment to clean it yourself without having to spend money. Colonial Palms was a total contrast and an absolute pleasure to stay in and we are definitely going to stay there again, and probably as soon as July when we are going to have some brief time away. AND we are already looking forward to that break!

      The only two ways we felt it didn't come up to scratch was the bath needed to be resurfaced but the rest of the room was excellent. And the breakfast was a little lacking. There were no muesli choices and the yoghurt was quite liquidy. Other than that it was excellent all round andI would still give them 10/10.

      Comfortable beds & breakfast included in tariff

      Fix the front driveways with better kerb.........damaged our car on exiting at the northern entry/exit

      Recently refurbished, lovely comfortable room with good view and quality furniture especially the balcony - lovely restaurant downstairs and excellent continental breakfast. Staff were all professional and welcoming. Free portacot provided which was great for the overnight traveller, location was good within easy walk/drive of lots of restaurants and takeaway - would have loved to have stayed longer and would def stay here again.

      They did not offer room service despite having a restaurant downstairs. The room information made it very clear this was not an option as they preferred families to use restaurant. As a couple with an infant, we would have loved to have been able to have even walked down and pick up our meal as we did not wish to inflict a screaming overtired child on other restaurant patrons, instead we went out and got subway.

      The Restaurant was absolutely excellent. Dishes are great and prepared with care. Enjoyed the swimming pool.

      Excellent location. Such helpful staff - especially Bernie. Rooms clean and well equipped. Excellent breakfast

    • 9.2

      Location was good with ocean views. Restaurant good.

    • 7.8

      Friendly staff. Nice swimming pool with a spa-like feel. Pool was directly in front of motel room patio/deck doors. Coin laundry room available but priced higher than other available laundry rooms on this trip.

      Bath/shower needs a larger counter area. Hotel is actually difficult to locate even with a GPS because it is "tucked in" on a side street at the top of a hill. The hotel is actually not viewable from the main highway. To navigate around Airlie Beach you will need a car.

    • 10.0

      our room was straight across from the pool! fantastic!
