Stayed in bay village jan 13-17 and would book it again next time I'm in cairns. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre and offers generously sized rooms with basic kitchenettes. Pool area and happy hour were enjoyed daily. $20 cab ride from the airport. Cheaper than booking a private hostel room for 2 and you don't have to share a bathroom with anyone. Facilities were very clean and staff was professional and courteous.
