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.

Reasonable, & very clean room. It was ideal for what we were looking for. The staff was very, very friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the price. I would definitely stay again :-)

We stayed for three days here and were very happy. The locations is great, right across from the lagoon. The place is clean and tidy with laundry, kitchen etc. The room we choose had a fan and that was fine without air con and the pool is nice too. Beds are comfy and the price was reasonable.
