We had a good stay at the Balinese Motel for three nights. Rooms were nicely furnished and clean. Staff were friendly enough. The complimentary light breakfast by the pool was nice. Was a bit of a walk to the main part of Cairns but we like walking so this wasn't a problem for us. Would recommend this motel.

Well worth your money! Only 20 minutes by foot to the CBD, we have been staying in this motel for 6 nights and really appreciated it. Very nice rooms, very intimate, very clean, very new, very breakfast included, very everything we want! Very nothing else to say. Enjoy!

We stayed here as a stop-off between landing from Sydney and going to Port Douglas, and it is a very comfortable place. Rooms are large and cool, the kitchen is well-equipped and the breakfasts (bread/toast, cereal, juice etc) plentiful. There is a small, pretty pool for cooling off. Management/staff friendly and moved us with no complaints when we found the... More

I stayed there with a friend for 4 nights. Its a really good location in cairns. Short walk away from the middle of the city. The rooms are very nice furnished and clean. Just the breakfast is poor. There is not much to choose from. But alltogether its a good value for money.

I and a friend of mine stayed in "the Balinese" for 4 days. The rooms are very nice furnished, comfortable to sleep and spacious. We had a room in the upper floor with balcony. The City and the Cairns Esplanade is just a 10min walk away, which is quiet convenient. The breakfast area was a bit poor, no decorations and... More

The motel was very clean and comfortable with spacious rooms. The kitchen area allowed you to cook, if you desired and handled the basic breakfast guests. It was a bit of a hike to the town center but we enjoyed the Esplanade. There were a lot of changes as most people seemed to be using this motel as a transition... More

The only bad-ish point is the hotel is a bit of a walk to the busy part of Cairns. Approx 15 minutes to the Lagoon area, however the walk is along the Esplanade area so it is quite scenic and busy with people running, BBQ-ing, theres a kids playground and activities, so plenty of action so you do not find...

The Balinese is a nice, clean, comfortable motel that is perfect for any length of stay in Cairns. The room is spacious. The decor is pleasant. The bed and bedding are good. Parking is good. Prices are reasonable. Breakfast is typical basic continental, but the kitchen area is clean and has everything you need if you want to make your... More

The Balinese is a simple Motel with clean and decent sized rooms a bit outside the centre of Cairns but in walking distance of most things. The breakfast is rather simple with toast and cereal but given the price for the rooms it is sufficient and there is a kitchen free to use. The staff is very friendly and helpful... More
