Balinese Motel
Ranked #38 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Reviewed 24 May 2012

Spent two nights here, the motel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable. Close to the CBD and the rate includes continental breakfast. Juice, tea, coffee, cereal and toast, basic but enough. Bed was comfortable and the surrounds were quiet. Didnt use the shuttle to the airport but they have one. Could use a light over the desk so that it was easier to work but that would be my only negative.

Room Tip: It is a walk up to the next floor so if stair are an issue that ask for the ground floor.

My wife and I booked this motel through a local tour agent who had recommended this place for our 3-night stay. It was economically priced as we were going to out most of the two days stay.
We arrived in the afternoon and managed to book in just before the heavy rainfall.
To book the shuttle you can use the telephone at the airport and it is at no cost.
However, there was some confusion as where at the airport we were to be picked up. My advice would be to check and confirm which pick up point you would be waiting as there one where only taxis are allowed.
The place is manned by someone during most of the day expect when the person has gone for a pick up of drop off to the airport.
The room was clean and had AC and a large TV.
There was a reasonably equipped kitchen downstairs near the pool area. It was self-service breakfast of cereal, toast, milk and orange juice.
There is free use of the Internet in the kitchen for one to check their emails.
The location was a little bit of a distance from the main CBD in Cairns which is on the right as you come out of the place.

My wife and I recently traveled to Cairns and stayed four nights in the Balinese hotel. Overall, it was about what I expected...nothing too fancy but nice enough that I wasn't depressed or grossed out about staying there. The rooms were clean and nicely laid out with solid AC and a large TV. We booked this place mainly due to the airport pickup and wifi. We did have to wait almost 45 minutes for the shuttle to come which was a little disappointing after finding out the hotel is less than a 10 minute drive from the airport. The wifi was also a little buggy at times. Breakfast consisted of toast and cereal....pretty basic but was nice to have. The location was a little bit of a hike from the main CBD in Cairns but we enjoyed the walk to and from along the esplanade. Some days, we wished it were closer. But overall, for the value and the nice room, it was a solid place to stay. We also had a slight misunderstanding with the shuttle to the airport on our way out, but they worked it out and provided the customer service I expected. I would recommend staying here for a solid, no thrills hotel in Cairns!

Room Tip: Room 17 was much better than 19...we stayed in two rooms!

The bedroom was really nice, air conditioning and a really comfortable atmosphere. The bathroom was fine; the pool was small but nice for a dip and to relax. The Kitchen was clean and had everything we needed. Got picked up at the airport no charge (just let them know when your coming, otherwise there is a special phone at the airport to contact the hotels). They also dropped us back for our next flight (Sweet).
I felt really relaxed at this place. It is a 10 min walk into the centre of town and if you haven't been to Cairns use the map they provide, however it was very affordable and I felt they went the extra mile to make the rooms really special eg. Nice furniture, no tacky useless stuff and very clean. Service was good. Will go there again :D

Room Tip: Look at reveiws. There is no lift to the second floor, tell them before hand if you need a ground fl...
