Beautiful apartment with all amenities a short walk from the lake. Our 2 night stay was spoiled by the 2 apartments next to us that were accommodating a number of inconsiderate people who took over the pool, swearing, drinking and playing loud music until 1am both nights we were there. I should have paid less and stayed at a hostel....

We quote enjoyed the stay. Lovely setting and great spacious rooms. You can see some are lived in permanently. However the entire place was empty except for a few permanent residents but we got put in one of few units that has no proper views of the lake. When asked staff why we had worst unit in empty resort I...

Tinaroo, Owner at Tinaroo Lake Resort, responded to this review

I'm happy to say that we have no such policy, never have had and never will. All apartments at Tinaroo Lake Resort are 4.5 star rated by AAA. Internally, all apartments are fitted out and furnished to the same high standard. All apartments have lake views, but our Superior Lake-View apartments do have somewhat better lake views.

We have been staying at Lake Tinaroo Resort for the past 7 years. Accommodation is not "modern", however, with a granite and timber kitchen, 3 toilets, 2 bathrooms (we stay in a spacious 3 bedroom unit) we find it absolutely lovely. The afternoons cooking on our own little webber on the balcony is just beautiful with views of the lake....

This was my second time staying at Tinaroo Lake Resort and it's nice to see they haven't let the place get run down at all. The grounds and units were as lovely as always, and there was some exterior renovations going on when we stayed which was good to see. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was...

Such a beautiful property with easy access to Lake Tinaroo. We have had dinner at Lake Tinaroo Resort a couple of times now and the staff and meals have been superb. We will be back next time to stay in one of their lovely self contained apartments, and to spending some relaxing time by the amazing pool and on the...

Our family stayed at the resort during the recent school holidays and were impressed with our 2 bedroom unit's location with beautiful views of both the lake and pool - one bedroom facing the pool and the other facing the lake. Pool facilities were excellent. The self catering and laundry facilities were great but we did need to clean some...

We have lived in Cairns for so long, but never knew about this hidden treasure until now due to a niece getting married here! We had a 2 bedroom superior apartment and we were blown away by how beautiful it was. The attached photo is taken from the top deck. Step inside and you are greeted with two oversized king...

We stayed for a wedding in September 2016 and were incredibly impressed with the site and facilities as a wedding venue. We were also very impressed with the units that we, and other members of our family had. Each one was completely self contained with high quality facilities and plenty of space as well as a small outdoor area to...

Good size and clean apartment right in the edge of the water. Kids loved park outside and fishing in dam. Good kitchen facilities and convenient location to tablelands area. Recommend for active families who don't want the hassle of camping.
