Not really clean for the motel part. Good point is i was in the top with a balcony and just 2 rooms on my floor. Room old but ok. Bed not comfortable. Close yo the lagoon and everything in Cairns. No free wifi (5$ per 24hours)

This hotel has a bit of a 60's-70's feel about it. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating - such a positive experience. Booking was super easy. Our room was a private double room around the side of the property. The bathroom was brand new and very clean. Our room was also clean, beds and pillows comfortable. There was a... More

After another bad hostel experience and finding that most accommodation was booked out, I paid for this room before seeing it, and stuck with it because I didn't want to spend my whole day looking for somewhere to stay. The staff were lovely, friendly guys, who obviously just didn't see the dirt - the room was VERY dirty! When I... More

Room is very basic, but clean, clean clean. Pool looks inviting, and the location is great. Not at all quiet, unless you're deaf! Cavernous building amplifies all the noise from amenity areas, added to the constant drone of airconditioning from the building next door.

This place is perfect if you want to escape from the backpackers and meet people from different countries just to talk to! The hostel has a 60's look and is clean! I would always come back to this place! It's right on the esplanade so you have everything right there!

We originally checked into a 4 person dorm room. However the room was pretty average. Decided to upgrade to a private room. The manager was happy to oblige, and everyone was happy. Throughout the 5 days we stayed there, the reception staff were very helpful and patient with our bookings and inquiries. For cheap accommodation, not bad.

The room was spacious, had a bathroom and air conditioning. We didn't pay for wifi but there is free cairns wifi in the... More

Took the 4 bed dorm for my friends and I. It was comfortable, clean and very cheap! It has a/c and ensuite bathroom. But you have to share the laundry and kitchen. Perfect for those who are seeking a private ensuite room without paying a lot. The staff are very friendly. Where do I even start. Thank you especially to... More

We stayed here for two nights and the best thing about the Bellview is the price and location. On the Esplanade so you can walk to the bars/restaurants and also to the port for trips to the GReat Barrier Reef. Our room was very basic but functional but we found the shared bathrooms not to be very clean. Also, there... More
