Lakes Cairns Resort & Spa

We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit for four nights, and the room was very spacious and comfortable. Room decorations were a bit out-dated and dusty, but the unit was quiet clean overall. We did find a couple of dead cockroches...all though you kind of expect that in tropical areas like Cairns. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pools (all five) were very impressive. The location is ok. You have to take a local bus or taxi to the city center. We enjoyed our stay there overall.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is right next to the Botanic Garden and Art Center. It's worth visiting.
