Patricia, 4-night trip
Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

good location, price was decent considering the stupid premium in Cairns at the moment, a few small things - the office was a walk up the street, there was no conceirge and i was terrified id lose my key and get lcked out on the street, and there was no iron in the room, which i just expected i guess.

lovely place to stay
I admit I was a bit hesitant at first as there was no off street parking but I had nothing to worry about. I was welcomed with a friendly smile and they were extremely helpful. The room was so clean and fresh and very well set out. The bathroom was huge and the bed was comfortable . It's so well situated in Cairns and you can easily walk everywhere in the city. . I would have no problem recommending Escape on Lake to anyone

The location was awesome and customer service was outstanding. The only negative was the harsh fluorescent lighting (which i didn't use), a couple more lamps would be much nicer.

Clean, excellent location. A bit hard to find as it has no proper reception, foyer or normal hotel conveniences like swimming pools and bar, however it was a really nice place to stay and quite comfortable and close to anything you need.
