A very nice option for the price point. Rooms are clean and comfortable with lots of character. The breakfast area by the pool is sheltered and comfortable on both sunny and cool mornings. The coin-operated laundry is close to the breakfast area so you can run things through while you eat, which I found very helpful. Check-in and check-out were... More

Stayed here for a number of nights and found the room and facilities very satisfactory. Room was clean and spacious with small refrigerator and coffee making facilities. The pool and communal kitchen ( where self serve continental breakfast is available) are very good features and add further value for all categories of visitors. Take the security code for the front... More

As a regular Bali visitor, I couldn't forego the chance to stay in a Balinese themed motel during a 2 day stop over in cairns. Found the room very appealing and 'true to type' with stone paved floors, simple furnishings in Balinese style and clean and fresh bathroom. Perhaps extending the decor to the breakfast area and including tropical fruits... More

I've stayed many times over the years whilst commuting between Brisbane and Torres Strait. Clean, comfortable rooms - steps with heavy bag might be a challenge for some. Great location - easy walk up the road for great food (bay village) and esplanade. Staff always pleasant and helpful.

Easy location for overnight stay after arriving into Cairns at night. Room was clean and comfortable. Reasonably priced with basic breakfast included. Clear instructions were provided to access motel after hours due to late arrival into Cairns.

A great value for money hotel within walking distance of the city centre on Lake Street. We were married in Bali and the name instantly attracted us when looking round, we're not big hotel lovers at all and a walk we always prefer to stretch the stomach out after dinner...and it's away from the noise. Good sized, ensuite double and... More

My boyfriend and I intended to stay 2 nights here at the end of our holiday. We travelled that day and arrived at 3pm. Reception was closed and the phone for when reception is closed was broken. The opening hours are 6- 10 and 4-7 from memory. So without being able to check in we went into Cairns for a... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Balinese and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and of a good size. There is a free continental breakfast, clean communal kitchen and laundry facilities.

This modest motel is worth considering if you are budget conscious. It is clean and well presented with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are on the small side and downstairs a bit dark but this is Cairns and we didn't come to spend time in our room! There is a clean and serviceable communal kitchen and shared dining room...

Very good value, continental breakfast by the little pool was included in the price. Very close to the CBD and close to the board walk around the ocean and CBD. Room was large, clean and nicely furnished. Staff excellent, we stayed an extra night, it was lovely. Would recommend and would stay again. Bonus was the Balinese Restaurant called BayLeaf... More
