Stayed three nights after checking out of the Novatel. We wanted something less busy and more roomy. Hello 201 Lake Street. We booked a one bedroom apt and our unit provided much more space than we hoped for. Lovely floor plan with separate bedroom, modern appliances including washer, dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and large TV. The AC worked beautifully and...

We stayed here recently and booked a hotel room to save on cost as we didn't need an apartment. What we didn't realise was there was none of the normal facilities available for this type of 4 star rating. No laundry facilities on site paid or otherwise or drink/snack vending machine. The room was a bit run down, chipped and...

Stayed only for only 3 days to attend a course - so was perfect. Easy walk to the Esplanade and a 10 - 12 min walk back into town. Having a washing machine and kitchen was really handy. Lovely set out and clean, modern furniture and homewares. The only complaint was that the shutters in the bedroom don't close sufficiantly...

I am a regular business traveller to Cairns and stayed here on a recent trip. pros - Great shower - Comfortable bedding and lounge - Great Kitchen cons - Location (15-20 min walk from esplanade) - Price was high compared to other apartments of similar quality but better position in Cairns.

We booked this hotel room because of the high ratings it had but overall we were disappointed.Essentially these are apartments not really hotel rooms. As such, there is no food or drinks available here. The good things about it were the location near to the Esplanade and it had free parking, a new spacious bathroom, WiFi, pool and reasonable sized...

Great apartment, everything was there. Kitchen was great, dishwasher, washing machine and drier. I really loved the balcony area. Close to esplanade. Management was fantastic - really, really helpful. 201 Lake street had such a good vibe as well! Would definately stay again. Vickie

The hotel is conveniently located. The rooms are well appointed (washer and dryer, dishwasher, fridge, stove, oven/microwave, dishes, cutlery, cookware, etc). The place is generally neat and tidy with a few signs of wear and age. The sofa in our room was basically ready for the landfill - the cushions were all flat and lifeless, the springs were shot, the...

Booked 201 Lake Street due to it being able to accommodate 5 people in a two bedroom apartment and for its location, price and the beautiful pictures online. A group of seven girls travelled from Melbourne to Cairns to celebrate two birthdays, enjoy some sunshine, relaxation and partying. 1) Beware - we were unaware that this was an "unserviced apartment"...

Really great base to explore Cairns. Apartment was great, everything you need for a home from home. Staff were amazing, always willing to help. Good location for centre, 5 mins to beachfront, 10 to town centre. Only negative was fact it is on quite a busy roundabout. Quieter in the evening but as it is close to hospitals quite busy...
