5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Would recommend to anyone who likes lots of light, fresh air, well appointed apartment, good walking distance to town and esplanade very quiet when door closed. Management very polite and attentive. I loved my stay here and we will be back.

Recently had a 4 night stay at 201 Lake Street, absolutely no qualms about staying again, well maintained property, a little extra care around the pool would be the only fault I could find. Very quiet resort which suited our short stay. A decent walk into town, along the Esplanade to a broad range of restaurants, the RSL would be the closest, with many more further along the strip. We had a one bedroom apartment which I would recommend for that extra room for longer stays. Excellent value. Highly recommend you will not be disappointed with this resort.

I usually stay over the road at Rydges, which is old and dated. A friend put me on to 201 Lake St Apartments and I'm hooked! The apartments are very modern with huge stand alone bath. I'm 5'11" and often struggle in a bath with knees to my chin. I could stretch my legs out and soak in the bath, awesome! There is a balcony with louvres and 4 seater table, kitchen with convection microwave and hot plates. Large bathroom with walk in shower and the bedroom has a really comfortable king size bed.
It's over the road from Mater Private and walking distance to the Base. Close to the Esplanade and walking distance to the Pier with all it's great restaurants. The manager is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

We had a couple of teething problems on our first night at 201 Lake St. The first was that I thought we had a full oven so bought some meat to roast but got back to the apartment to find we had a convection microwave but no problem we could do it the microwave but there was no dish that would fit into the microwave! We went out for dinner and there is no shortage of eating places in Cairns. Later that night I had a shower which was lovely until I went to grab a towel and realised that there was water all over the floor and out into the lounge room around the toilet everywhere so spent the next 1/2 hour trying to wipe it up with a squeegy mop and towel. My husband spoke to the manager as we were going out the next morning and came back to find a new tile across the entrance to the shower and a microwave proof dish so full marks for that. The apartment was large and had an adequate kitchen with a dishwasher, bath and shower and washing machine and dryer which made life very easy! Soap powder was provided for the washing machine. There was a little balcony which had louvres so I used it to dry my washing, it would be good if a little clothes airer was provided but I didn't find it a problem. The bedroom was comfortable and roomy with a king size bed and a fan which was great we hardly put the air conditioner on over the week we were there. It was in a good location a flat 5 - 10 mins walk to the restaurants and a pleasant walk along the boardwalk. The room was serviced once during our stay which was nice as many apartments aren't if you are there for a week. We didn't use the pool but noticed that it maybe needed a clean and in fact the outside was a little tired but I realise that in tropical locations things deteriorate quickly. It was quiet with no parties or anything and I believe there are units occupied by fly in fly out workers so I guess they need a quiet place to stay . We were very happy with getting taxis to and from the apartments never had to wait very long and when we had a hire car it was no problem to use the parking area underneath. All in all it was a great place to stay and we would be happy to go back there.

Room Tip: We had a room which overlooked the Private Hospital and had o outlook over the mountains it was a on...

We just came back from Cairns and I wouldn't recommend going there during the summer as it was sooo hot!

The hotel was very clean, modern and all new. Dishwasher, washing machine, dryer... everything that you would need to have a nice holiday. We have spent one weekn there and we were so happy with our choice. Staff was friendly and helpful too.

The only thing is the location. It is 15 minutes by walking which would be ok if the weather was pleasant, but in such a hot weather it was not enjoyable to spend 30 minutes walking to go to the centre.

Room Tip: There were no room service as it was an apartment and not a hotel. High floors are quieter.

We found 201 easy to find and was pleasantly surprised with the clean modern and quite spacious layout of our single bed unit. All the utensils were of quite good quality and they have a unique style of room service where you can choose from a range of local Resturants, order a meal and for a small fee have it delivered. This was a blessing after a reasonably long day of travel.
The position is close to the marina and there appears to be plenty of action close by.
For those having to visit sick friends the apartments are well situated within short walking distance of all the medical facilities including the Cairns Hospital.

We had been to 201 Lake Street a couple of years back and was not disappointed on our return. The apartments are really nice and clean. The area is quiet, and you are within walking distance with everything that Cairns has to offer. Plenty of good walks to go on. The reception is really helpful. We used the pool and the BBQ while we were there, both immaculately clean. Enjoyed our stay and next time we are back in Cairns, this will be where we will be staying!
