Stayed in a self contained apartment for a month. Location was very handy, 2 streets from the esplanade. Room had all the mod cons, nothing fancy. The downside was the cleanliness of the room,which was very poor. The guy at the front desk was never helpful or useful. There was a lady on the counter occasionally who was great. Finally... More

I returned to Cairns to visit family and stayed 7 nights @ 201 Lake. I rented a 2 bed apartment (because my Mother, who lives out of state, joined me). Our apartment, indeed the entire complex, was just as the photos advertised: bright, modern and spacious. I had requested a high floor with a water view and the folks in... More

The units are spacious, well organised and comfortable, everything one needs is there from white goods, microwave, stove top and utensils to TV in lounge & bedroom... More

I stayed in a hotel room for 5 nights for personal recreational travel. I rented a car for a few days, but I was able to walk to all the main precincts in the city quite easily from the hotel. I registered my vehicle at reception and I was able to park at the front of the hotel without any... More

After travelling for a week this apartment was a great place to chill out. We'll appointed with laundry facilities, bath/shower, king bed and really quiet. Check in and check out was a breeze nothing was too much trouble. We stayed on the 5th floor...parking not a problem.

I stayed at 201 Lake St for a month in May and while the building management and staff were exceptional I had the unfortunate experience of renting from an outside agency-Short Term Accomodation-Cairns. It seems that Apt #23 is the only unit in the whole building rented by an outside agency and that both the owner and the agency don't... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in May, loving every minute of it. Clean, spacious, modern apartment with everything you need. We had a room facing the Main Street but if you close the balcony door it blocked all street noise out. We were aware that there will be extra cost for extra towel and house keeping but the room...

If you like to sleep, then this isn't the place for you. Not only is it extremely noisy (traffic, noise from other apartments, cleaners at 7.30am on a Sunday morning), but the beds and pillows are terrible. The beds are hard and the pillows lumpy. Also, they charge for anything and everything. I had to warn my children not to... More

We stayed on floor 5 for 3 nights and the traffic noise early in the mornings was very loud enough to wake you up. We required a couple of clean bath towels and had to pay $2.00 each if you require anything extra even a tea bag you have to pay for it. Considering the price you pay for a... More

stayed 5 nights in May. Apartment was clean and fairly well equipped, although had a couple of small issues ( couple of lights not working) they were fixed promptly. Every thing was close, walked to esplanade in under 10 mins. staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing to improve would be a few more basics in the kitchen.... More
