I was staying just 3 nights in Cairns before heading down to the Whitsundays and when I was looking to book a room there was so much choice. The reviews for the Bellview seemed good and so I decided to book. Booking was made super easy when I emailed the hostel as I couldn't find a private room on any... More

In the middle of everything, just next door to the night market. They have a kitchen and a swimming pool. Staff are very friendly and helpful. You can book activities through them and they can give you good advice. They have a wide range of rooms, for all budgets.

We found the Bellview an excellent place to stay, the staff were most helpful The rooms were cleaned and serviced daily. The lack of restaurant facilities not a problem as there is an excellent kitchen provided. There is a large range of eating places to suit all budgets within walking distance. With the help of the staff we were able... More

I really like this place right on the Esplanade in Cairns. This is why I always return to my home away from home. The Bellview has the BEST staff ever: Evan changed the flat tyre of my car-special service. Oooooiiiiiii reckon. Eric is the funniest Aussie of all and Craig has always got a story to tell. And they all... More

Broadlands hotel in Chennai.The Press Club in Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Very few places achieve this cult status with travellers and here we have another one well in the making. A slightly older place the Bellview charms you. The moment you walk through the front entrance, from the exceedingly central hubbub of the very heart of the tourist strip, you... More

I was looking for clean, reasonably priced, centrally located room to accommodate 3 people and the Bellview was the perfect fit. The location is absolutely fantastic being right on the Esplanade. It was close to restaurants, the night market and and an IGA. We enjoyed evening walks along the Esplanade and the lighting of the Christmas tree. The staff were... More

Live an hour away and when i need accommodation in Cairns I would not stay anywhere else. The staff are excellent and always remember me. It is right on the esplanade.Excellent price for beautiful rooms newly renovated. Safe and although the noisy backpackers is nearby the night watchman on site keeps the Bellview under control.

You don't pay a lot for staying at the Bellview. So, you can't really expect that much. But, if you are only after basic accommodation that is well located, then it seems quite reasonable value for the money.

You can't get a better location than this. The water is right out front, close to the marinas and the downtown core. This family-run business was well organized. Very helpful staff. Rooms were outdated, but not a big deal. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here last year and this year again. Service friendly and helpful, I always book my tours through them. You sense they don't see you as a walking dollar sign but as a person. Everything you need to see and do is within walking distance which is really handy. We stay in a motel room on the highest level with... More
