The excellent service began with the pickup from the airport. Nice self-service continental breakfast provided provided (not common in Australia). Breakfast was in an open room next to the (small) pool - very pleasant. The location is within walking distance to the town center. The room was clean and free parking was available (we picked up a rental car in... More

We have just spent four very enjoyable nights at the Balinese in Cairns. This motel knows what it is and does it excellently- the rooms are spotless, simply decorated and have all you really need(inc a spacious wardrobe and a fridge). Staff are friendly and helpful- the airport transfers were well organised and they booked our trips to the reef... More

If this motel was closer to town, it would be perfect. The room and bathroom were clean. The beds were acceptable (a little hard). They had wifi. The only downside was the distance from town. The esplanade was close. Staff was very helpful in setting up our tours.

We loved the Balinese, simple rooms but very clean, free breakfast as well and a great location just across the road from the esplanade. We had a very good deal on the internet, and would go back anytime. The free airport shuttle is another added bonus which adds to the value of this great little place and is not your... More

We stayed at the Balinese before and after a Great Barrier reef trip. It was an excellent choice. The beds were comfortable and the rooms nicely if plainly decorated. It was about a fifteen minute walk to the main restaurants and shops in Cairns. The staff was uniformly friendly. They let you leave your big bags while on the reef... More

great place to stay and we were very happy that we found this place, close to town and 2 minutes from the esplande, clean rooms with indonesian style furniture, free breakfast and airport transfer can t beat it for that price it was perfect for us.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in a room on the ground floor. The rooms are decorated in Asian style and were a positive surprise at the low price we paid: clean, quite big and quiet. I suppose the good relation is possible because there is almost no staff: You can make and clean up your own breakfast, everything... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights on our first visit to Cairns. The motel offers free airport transfers which was great and quick. We arrived at 9am and they had our room ready for us even though check in was at 11am. Staff were helpful and gave us advice when we first arrived. Room was large with... More
