“Made my holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

The Bellview was recommended to me by the Airport shuttle driver and it was a great choice! Craig, one of the staff working the desk, was brilliant! He helped me book daytrips to the Daintree and to the Great Barrier Reef very easily and with short notice. The room was pretty basic, but I really only used it to sleep and keep my stuff. Located centrally on the Esplanade made it very convenient and a super enjoyable trip!

All the communications I had with The Bellview were fast, helpful and polite, from the emails to all all the people on the desk. I asked for a quiet room with bathroom and no aircon (not needed in winter), which was $59 or maybe $69, I forget for a queen bed and bathroom. It was fine for one day after my week in Port Douglas.

It would not do for me for more than 1 day though as I prefer a better kept place. It had tea and coffee and a TV in the room. I was there fro about 14 hours.

ITts 10 steps from the 'night market' which is small where there's a $15 massage which is not professional, but relaxing enough, The Esplanade is right opposite and they had Zumba in the Park on the evening I was there with about 1000 people all joining in and that was great fun and a bit of a highlight actually.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room away from the road.

I was looking for a quit hostel in town, have been almost everythere. Finally I found this one and I was really surprised and happy to find a good and quite hostel. It is pretty clean, all staff is very friendly and helpful. They just have a small kitchen but enough for cooking. The rooms are a bit old, but clean and comfortable. Every room has their own bathroom, a fridge, chairs and one cupboard. I always coming back when I am in Cairns again.

It has been nice to stay at Bellview. The people are friendly and helpful, and they have tours available at the counter for us. It is centrally located right at the middle of The Esplanade. Surrounded by restaurants and just at the waterfront area too. The only down part of it, is they don't have parking area. We had to park at the side of the road, overnight is free but during the day is pay parking.

Lovely place, seems like a backpackers place, nice price, nice rooms, can walk anywhere in town. Many restaurants around, very convenient for airport shuttle, can remember what else to say, but i enjoyed there.

Reasonable, & very clean room. It was ideal for what we were looking for. The staff was very, very friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the price. I would definitely stay again :-)

Room Tip: As a family of mom and 2 grown children the motel room with private bathroom was the right choice.
