A very nice apartment complex close to Cairns waterfront esplanade and restaurant/ entertainment strip. The apartments are large, clean and comfortable. The Pool and outdoor amenities are very good. Overall a very good location whilst in Cairns !!

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and it was perfectly satisfactory. We were on an upper floor and it was fine. It was clean and spacious, the pool was great for laps, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The main town centre of Cairns was a good walk away - it is not in the centre of... More

It had a nice spacious balcony with great view, superb kitchen etc, everything you could need, beds were fantastic.The esplanade is a short walk away. The pool and bbq... More

Stayed here for 1 week recently on holiday. Had a 2 bedroom apartment, which is really a interconnecting room. The king bed here was fantastic. The couch however was extremely uncomfortable. Looks great in the advertisements, but really could not sit on it comfortably or enjoy it. The wifi was terrible. The connection was really bad. The pool looks amazing... More

We stayed in Rm 34 on Level 3 of 201 Lake Street for 4 nights. The room is very spacious, more than enough for 2. The kitchen is well equipped, bathtub is clean and big. The pressure of the shower is good too but the water temperature fluctuated a bit. The bed is cozy too. The balcony is very big... More

Stayed here during school holidays in a two bedroom room at $385 per night. I have stayed here twice now, and there will not be a third visit. PROS Walking distance to my family's home, which was the reason for choosing this property on each occasion CONS Noisy - both traffic noise (the property is on a busy roundabout) and... More

I have read your review with intense mortification on all levels. How to prioritise my mortification is difficult. Firstly I am mortified that you hated us so much. Second I am absolutely mortified that you did not make contact with us to air your discontent. I am sure many of your disappointments could have been averted if you had done... More

We stayed here as a family to be central in Cairns for activities and exploring the surrounds. Whilst not as central as so some places, it's only a five minute walk to the esplanade and less to the water. Comfortable modern rooms, decent decor. Not great views though. Would stay here again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property and I am pleased that it met your requirements whilst visiting Cairns. Yes being an inner city Hotel and not on the water front, we regret that in terms of view, it is quite limited. I do hope that if you do visit this way again you may... More

For our situation with 2 couples traveling together this was the perfect accommodations for us. They are very spacious and well kept rooms. Beds were very comfy. Extra nice was having separate bathrooms for each room. The front desk hours are inconvenient considering our flight came in at 4am but they were very accommodating to allow us to check in... More

First time in Cairns!! If 201 Lake Street is 4 star hotel as advertised, a few things need to be changed in order to meet the description. The room we stayed in was a 1 bdrm apartment on level 4, I must say that it was very spacious and had a nice atmosphere! Although there are a few things I... More
