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,...

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...

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...

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...

Loved Cairnes. Stayed at 201 LAKES. Upon our arrival back home found that the managment had deducted $150 from our account 'as the sofa need to be fumigated'. How dare he accuse us of smoking in the room when a balcony was sufficient to have a cigarette and only one smoker in our party. This monetary cost should be built...
