Nice place, quiet and short walk to town centre. Friendly and helpful staff, clean but need a renovation. Don't miss the food in the restaurant - it's amazing, best meal in Cairns! Expensive but make sure you're hungry because the portions are big! Pool is small and quiet, but nice to sunbaked and relax. Has a balinese touch to the...

We arrived as part of a large group late in the evening and in the rain.. the lovely girl at the desk, immediately had a couple of young men help us take our luggage up the stairs since there is no elevator and our rooms were on the...

I have been to Bay Village twice now and plan to go again on our next trip to Cairns. The hotel is centrally located, has an excellent onsite restaurant and the rooms are spacious and clean. While this is not a high end hotel, it is great for families and those seeking something a little more affordable.

I was there for business and found the location to be good - very close to esplanade, and approx. 15-20 mins walk to restaurants and cairns central. The room was a standard room and met these requirements, with the staff being helpful and friendly. I needed an iron/board for work the next day, however none in my room. They were...

I arrived early in the evening, it was dark and raining but the female staff member showed me to my room and where facilities such as restaurant, laundry were then insisted on carrying my luggage up the stairs. That was the only time on my trip throughout Cairns help with luggage was even offered let alone provided. The room was...

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights in Nov. We have free upgrade from a standard room to a studio room which is very spacious. As shown in the name of the hotel, you can feel that you are staying in a tropical area with the surrounding trees in the hotel. The lady in the reception is very...

I was traveling with a group and an excursion to the reef was a must,so we stopped in Cairns. We had been booked into a small hotel, five minutes walk from the Esplanade. When we arrived our expectations were totally met: clean rooms, nice refreshing pool and friendly staff. Once again, a good choice.

Good location just 5 minutes from Esplanade and 20 minutes walk into town. Our room was overlooking a busy street. The swimming pool smelt and friends only used it once. Our breakfast was confusing, the staff made it more confusing. The aircon units in our bedrooms failed and one unit could not be fixed. The engineer tried to fit an...

Ideally located in a serene atmosphere. The hotel is spacious and so are the rooms. It has greenery inside with lot of trees and gives the feeling of retreat. The staff are friendly and are always at your service. It doesn't have the look of the modern day hotel but if one needs an ideal laid back vacation this is...
