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 Rooms were outdated, but not a big deal.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

We stayed at the Bellview for one night and found the rooms, lobby, and kitchen filthy. Old washing machines and hot water heaters were scattered about the lobby area. The bathrooms were dirty and the rooms claustrophobic. The location is excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful, but it needs some cleaning and upgrades. We cancelled our other reservations... More

The Bellview was recommended to me by the Airport shuttle driver and it was a great choice! Craig, one of the staff working the desk, was brilliant! He helped me book daytrips to the Daintree and to the Great Barrier Reef very easily and with short notice. The room was pretty basic, but I really only used it to sleep... More

All the communications I had with The Bellview were fast, helpful and polite, from the emails to all all the people on the desk. I asked for a quiet room with bathroom and no aircon (not needed in winter), which was $59 or maybe $69, I forget for a queen bed and bathroom. It was fine for one day after... More

It has been nice to stay at Bellview. The people are friendly and helpful, and they have tours available at the counter for us. It is centrally located right at the middle of The Esplanade. Surrounded by restaurants and just at the waterfront area too. The only down part of it, is they don't have parking area. We had to... More

Lovely place, seems like a backpackers place, nice price, nice rooms, can walk anywhere in town. Many restaurants around, very convenient for airport shuttle, can remember what else to say, but i enjoyed there.
