TravelPod Member ReviewsBalinese Motel Cairns
We found the Balinese Motel a welcoming and quiet place to spend our 5 days in Cairns. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and quiet, and the location was within relatively easy walking distance from the centre of town and the waterfront. An enjoyable stay.

... you'll know what I mean.. But there was no polar bears to be seen! We caught the shuttle bus to the hostel, and made our way to our "room". Turns out, we're in the shed!! Literally. And since we have to pay for air conditioning, I think it'll be a warm shed! We dropped our bags and headed towards town. We found our way to the lagoon, booked a snorkel tour for Sunday and found somewhere for dinner. While waiting for dinner to arrive, I happened to see a man stopping to talk to one of ...
... in the turbo oven, John came back wet bum, no fish. He wanted to go for a walk but I had cakes in the oven and when they were finished, it was too dark. I cooked the roast chicken in the turbo oven and baked some potatoes in the microwave. I also had some corn on the cob in the microwave. I watched Mr Selfridge from 10pm - 12 ...
