“Great location, decent price”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

This motel is located in the beach esplanade.there are many restaurants, bars and shops just next to it. The esplanade is really the place where all the happening is in the evenings. The beach is just opposite to the hotel and you can go for a walk or run in the walkway along the beachside.Or just sit and watch the views. Also large public swimming pool is very near.

If you are planning a reef trip or trip to Kuranda the location great for those also. The marina and terminal is within few minutes walk also the railway station and main bus stop is not too for a away.

Stayed in a motel room which was nice for that price and also clean.Rooms include shower,Tv ad fridge. Cleaners come every day.The Wifi is not free but there are some places such as McDonalds very near by where you can use Wifi for free.The Bellwiev also has shared rooms for backpackers. There is also kitchen nad swimming pool on the premises.

The hotel staff at the front desk is friendly and they will help you advise you hot to get around in the city.Also basicly all the tours such as trips to the Great barrier reef can be booked directly from the hotel and you might get some discoutn also.there are also many different procures available.Hotel staff will also help you getting bus or taxi transport to airport.

Overall really nice place to stay with good location and clean rooms.

so outdated it is comical. It's like walking into the 1950s. If you don't mind sleeping on a bed that has a number 6 written in marker on the headboard then stay here. This hotel is right on the Esplanade so it gets away with not updating or fixing (broken towel rack on floor of bathroom) rooms. Front desk people were helpful. We stayed there one night which was enough. You definitely get noise from street. I think you can do better in Cairns (like not stay in Cairns at all- think party central.)

I have stayed at the Bellview Hotel many times over the past 23 years and have always found the hotel to be clean, friendly, and the location could not be more perfect. The hotel, while located in the middle of the busiest street in Cairns, has most rooms set back from the street and is quiet at night. The hotel is ideally located to allow quick access to the harbor (to get to your tour boat to the reef) quickly and is a across from the lagoon swimming pool. The rooms consist of anything from a hostel dorm to nice single en suite rooms, and the cost is very reasonable. The staff are mostly Cairns' natives who are thoroughly knowledgeable about every attraction and tour in the area.

Location on the Esplanade offers easy access to all parts of town. Restaurants, the Night Market (with all-day food hall), and cafes with Wi-Fi at
just a stone's throw. Very competent staff can willingly arrange trips of virtually any description and price range. Pleasant swimming pool, never overcrowded. There is a good variety of rooms, all immaculately clean and well cared for. We had a small double, with twin beds. Efficient overhead fan. Wash basin in room, and shower room close by.
Fridge for guest use on each floor. Communal kitchen is small but adequate, with large fridge and plenty utensils. Pleasant lounge area with TV, and quite a good selection of books Just one draw-back. The hostellers in the next-door establishment can be very noisy late at night. The Bellview night staff, however, are not slow to complain on their guests' behalf!!!! Transport TO airport can be easily arranged by staff.
Booking on the net efficient

Room Tip: As a couple ,ask for room on first floor( in same block as kitchen) overlooking the pool.
