Bay village is not a luxury hotel, but is an excellent value within walking distance of the Espalande. The restaurant is a gem, we were told by many locals it is one of their favorite places to go. Clean an unassuming a nice place to relax.

Stayed in Hotel Room 224 for 2 nights commencing Saturday 16th November. Arrived around 10ish so couldn’t get into our room until 1ish. No problem. Left luggage in storage area and went off for a walk to discover Cairns. Room was clean and had everything needed. Lots of tea and coffee, but room does need updating as very old fashioned... More

We wanted some kitchenette facilities so our agent booked this. This grounds are not particularly well-maintained and the room facilities are very worn. The outside needs paint and sweeping, the grounds are not well-maintained and there is laundry hanging from the fence around the pool. It is in the middle of the medical sector of town (including a mental hospital... More

The hotel is situated near to the beach and not far from the centre of the town. The accomodation was very sufficient. We had a great room with kitchen, a neat bathroom with washing mashine and dryer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A Balinese Restaurant is a part of the hotel. The menu of this restaurant was superb,... More

Stayed in bay village jan 13-17 and would book it again next time I'm in cairns. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre and offers generously sized rooms with basic kitchenettes. Pool area and happy hour were enjoyed daily. $20 cab ride from the airport. Cheaper than booking a private hostel room for 2 and you... More

We stayed in November 2013 and overall it was a positive experience. The rooms were basic but clean, and the property is tucked away so there is minimal street noise. We had a room facing a small inner courtyard so we had no noise at all. The bathroom is huge, but has 2 cons - horrible lighting and really low... More
