The room we stayed in on ground floor was clean and the bed was comfortable. There is a communal area by the pool where a basic breakfast is served of cereal and toast. We stayed for 3 nights and got a great price. The Balinese restaurant just up the road is definitely worth the visit. You'll get free drink vouchers... More

The room was stylish, clean, but small. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was reasonably sized. The central kitchen was well equipped but the continental breakfast was less than average. The location is convenient with shops and restaurants in short walking distance. The Esplanade with lots of shops and restaurants is about 15' walk. Considering the quite reasonable price,... More

The rooms were good - good air con, beds comfy etc. The location is ok. About a 15-20 min walk to the main strip. Breakfast pretty average. No Vegemite!! Would be nice to also have skim milk (only full cream available) and wholemeal bread (only white available). Overall we slept pretty well here and had a good stay. You get... More

A great little find. I was travelling on my own and found this motel very clean, nicely decorated and quiet. It was an extremely hot day when I arrived and they already had the air con going in the room so it was lovely and cool. Breakfast by the pool was a welcome extra. The only very small criticism is...

The room was fine - it had everything we needed and was clean. The pool was very welcome - the weather was hot. We decided to go into town for dinner. The directions from reception were so poor that we ended up walking for 40 minutes. If the reception provided a map of the local area as most city hotels... More

We stayed in a standard double room on the first floor for two nights. We arrived before check-in hours, but we got the room anyway -- very appreciated. The room was nothing exceptional, but completely OK. It seemed clean, the bed was allright and there was a fridge, kettle and TV. There was no insect screen on the window, this... More

We found the Balinese to be a great place to stay during our trip to Cairns. It's about a 20 minute walk into the city centre, and it's quite a pleasant walk if you go up to the Esplanade. There's places to eat and buy groceries etc close by without having to go all the way into town. The rooms... More
