Situated on the edge of the West Lake foreshore, the newly refurbished Lakes Hotel is an aesthetic balance of contemporary and nautical themes. The colours, textures, and nautical references invoke a distinct atmospheric ambience and acknowledgement of the waterfront, with similar materials and details carrying through the varying spaces accentuating a consistency of design.
With the re-located gaming room, the existing hotel bar was retained and extended to offer bar service from all sides catering to the varied offering within the hotel. The Lakes Hotel now provides a daytime café, modern sports and gaming facilities including a five-meter super screen. The engineered ceiling system has strong acoustic properties, keeping the noise – and atmosphere – separate from the adjoining dining areas.
