Such a good location. The staff at the tour desk were great - so friendly and full of advice. Cheap and quiet, and strangely charming. As far as the bad stuff goes: The furnishings in the double room were dilapidated and pretty uncomfortable, the communal kitchen wasn't exactly clean or well-appointed, the backpackers' next door was extremely noisy, the pool...

Not a fancy place by any means, but located at the hub of the eating district of Cairns right on the esplanade makes it very convenient to dine in style and book the numerous tours available about the region. If you book through the hotel you gain a small discount on the tour costs. The hotel has an internal swimming...

Very friendly front desk staff and basic but clean rooms make the Bellview my #1 choice when I travel through Cairns (which happens rather frequently). Its conveniently located in the heart of the nightlife of Cairns, so you won't have to walk too far for food and drinks. I have stayed in the dorm rooms and the private rooms multiple...

Beautiful, well maintained unit, with spectacular sun-rise views. We got a 3 bedroom unit, which was perfect for our family. The covered deck is very large, and we spent a lot of time out there. We love it here and will definitely be back! Pool is also very nice ...and location is very convenient to the local restaurants.

We stay here every time we visit Cairns. Great value for money. It's not 5 star but perfect for the budget conscious as its clean, very quiet and right in the heart of it all. Its surrounded by great restaurants and its right across from the esplanade and Lagoon. Love this place!!!!

Excellent hostelry and very central to everything in Cairns. Couldn't be better ! Been coming here since 1956 and Grandchildren of original owner run it. My own grandchildren come here as well. Other benefits are that it is inexpensive , he the pool is great . There's no restaurant but next to restaurants and shops.

As far as i could see the dorms were nice and clean. We however made the mistake of taling a room - hot, sticky, dirty, fans not functioning, smelly- i could go on. Avoid the seemingly older style motel rooms!
