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.

Stayed one night here and the staff were very friendly and the room was excellent value for the money. Wifi is available for purchase, reasonable fee. Great location and even though it is on a busy road, no noise really, slept very well. Thank you.
