A couple of my friends and I (5 total) stayed here during our vacation in Cairns, and it was definitely a great decision!
First of all, the innkeepers who man the reception desk are quite nice, and very helpful. We did not need to book any tours through them, but they do offer discounts for tours if you need. They are easy to talk to, and gave very helpful hints on how to make the most out of our time there.
We stayed in a six-person motel (I believe; 4 twin beds and a queen), and each paid $30/night. The room was your standard "stuck in the past" type of motel, but the linens, bathroom, and general room was clean. There was an electric kettle, tea bags and instant coffee, and a refrigerator - very useful. The room did come with AC. One fan did not work, but that wasn't much of an issue. This is not luxurious living - but it is great value.
What sets this place over the top is location. Located right on the esplanade, this motel is in a prime spot. A 30 second walk straight out of the door places you at the water's edge. A 2 minute walk (maybe less!) places you at the Esplanade Lagoon, probably the most beautiful public pool I have ever laid eyes on! Finally, it is less than a 10-minute walk to the Reef Fleet Terminal, where you will most likely be leaving from if going on excursions out to the reef.
Bottom line: the Bellview is a great value at an unbeatable location. Staying here will be a great decision!
