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

The hotel is located one block away from the esplanade and 15 min walk from the centre. The rooms are clean but they smell like humidity. The breakfast is really basic. No free WiFi, bit you can use a PC in the kitchen until 9 pm. Free parking.

Have previously stayed at the Bay Village. The Balinese Motel offer very good value for money. Clean rooms, maintained daily. Breakfast included plus the facilities to be able to cook all your meals. Why bother with an apartment. Would definitely stay here again. The walk into Cairns provides some exercise!

Good room - nice size - clean and well equipped. Tea and coffee making facilities. Fridge, re-stocked daily with milk. Air con was good and the ceiling fan nice and quiet! Not a bad location, but a 20 minute walk to town centre, so a bit out of the way - seemed to be amongst all the medical institutions! As... More
