Our very own paradise - well located close to cafes, the esplanade, shops. Great staff, nice rooms and amenities. Tours can be organised to Cape Trib, Green Island, Port Douglas etc, it really is a gate way to everywhere in Nth Quennsland

A great hotel. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Hotel was very clean and the beds were to die for. Great location. Only complaint is that the room was much smaller than the photos online but still big enough. Would recommend a stay here

The hotel is businesslike with excellent breakfast, very pleasant staf and all the other facilities you expect in a hotel of this kind. Bicycles can be rented... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff could not do enough. Surely not the biggest player in town but making a mark. Must point out front desk going above and beyond. Some improvements in F&B would be great. The bar was somewhat impersonal and not really inviting. Typical hotel syndrome. We only had breakfast in the restaurant and it just needs... More

This hotel ticks all the boxes - good location walking distance from all the important city locations including the classy convention centre, excellent staff who know the answers to your every question, clean, quiet, spacious rooms, taxis arriving within a few minutes of any request, attractive gardens both inside and outside the building, - the list goes on.

Positioned well near the bayside esplanade so useful for walkers & joggers alike. Also close to CBD & restaurants. The check in staff were very friendly & efficient. I highly recommend being a member of the Hilton Honours to avail yourself of free internet. The room itself was reasonably spacious although quite plain with little aesthetic appeal. No minibar either... More

Doubletree is quirky hotel in terms of design, which is an attraction in itself. However, that leads to a lot of walking to the lifts. The interiors are stunning with superb landscaping. Don't miss the fish feeding they do in their mini aquarium. Front desk is very efficient. TV doesn't give many options for viewing and wi-fi is not free.... More

Visiting Cairns we wanted a hotel that was convenient to the Esplanade, walking distance to the restaurants and the marina. This fitted our needs. Being a large hotel, there were plenty of room and so an early check in was possible. We were not in the room much, but it served our purpose well for a clean and comfortable place... More
