I stayed in a private a/c room for 4 nights and it was perfect for what I needed. The room was spacious with a double/queen and a twin bed, a full bath (no tub), closet, TV, mini-fridge and chair. There was a fan and a/c. Honestly the room was nothing special and is fairly dated and the a/c was a... More

Basic hotel on the esplanade in Cairns. It is very close to shops and restaurants. The front desk are very helpful and can organise any attraction you wish to visit and usually get you a bit of a discount. Our room ("1") looked out onto the street but there was very little noise intrusion and it was interesting to check... More

We were given a choice of double rooms with ensuites and chose the 'crow's nest' which is a double room with ensuite at the very top of the hotel with an amazingly large private balcony.The pool is spotlessly clean, the room was serviced and the staff are all friendly and offer excellent...

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.

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.
