Stayed here last year and this year again. Service friendly and helpful, I always book my tours through them. You sense they don't see you as a walking dollar sign but as a person. Everything you need to see and do is within walking distance which is really handy. We stay in a motel room on the highest level with it's own verandah called the crows nest. Very private and pretty quiet.

Room is small but comfy with private bathroom. Bed is a double and moves a bit but is comfortable. Honestly that would be the only thing I could fault the place on. Room rates are very reasonable relative to the facilities and location. You can't expect the world for what you pay. If you want luxury go somewhere else and pay 5 times what you pay here. If you want good clean rooms at a fair price in the perfect location, The Bellview is for you.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed at the Bellview for one night and found the rooms, lobby, and kitchen filthy. Old washing machines and hot water heaters were scattered about the lobby area. The bathrooms were dirty and the rooms claustrophobic. The location is excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful, but it needs some cleaning and upgrades. We cancelled our other reservations there and would not recommend staying there.

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.
