“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We had a good stay at the Balinese Motel for three nights. Rooms were nicely furnished and clean. Staff were friendly enough. The complimentary light breakfast by the pool was nice. Was a bit of a walk to the main part of Cairns but we like walking so this wasn't a problem for us. Would recommend this motel.

Well worth your money! Only 20 minutes by foot to the CBD, we have been staying in this motel for 6 nights and really appreciated it. Very nice rooms, very intimate, very clean, very new, very breakfast included, very everything we want! Very nothing else to say. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Breakfast is included, it is a cheap one, but it is good anyway!

We stayed here as a stop-off between landing from Sydney and going to Port Douglas, and it is a very comfortable place. Rooms are large and cool, the kitchen is well-equipped and the breakfasts (bread/toast, cereal, juice etc) plentiful.
There is a small, pretty pool for cooling off.
Management/staff friendly and moved us with no complaints when we found the neighbouring hostels' music too loud.
Good location - 10 minutes to the seafront and parks, and about the same to the shopping centres. Supermarket is across the road.

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 the entrance to little pool next by was closed most of the time.

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 from one place to another. It is a clean, budget motel.
