Greeted at reception, everyone smiles and is willing to help you. From the Concierge to Donna on Reception, the service was IMPECCABLE! Room was ready early, cookies were warm and the room very crisp and very clean. It was a nice surprise and the hotel had everything, and if it didn't, it wasn't far away. If in town, definitely stay here, the beds and pillows were next level, I'd stay back there in a heartbeat! Join up to Hilton Honours and you get FREE internet. Sold me!

I really enjoyed my stay here and would go again. The staff was really outstanding. The room was great, clean and well located.

There were a few issues that I think are anomalies. The elevator near our room wasn't working properly. I am assuming that is why the main elevator was so slow. It was great to have a couple of washers and dryers on the floor, but only one of each was working. But the big issue was that they had a bunch of large tour groups in. When we went down to breakfast, there was a huge line and all the tables were full. I'd have a back up plan just in case. Luckily, there are several places near by. But Cairns doesn't get going really early, so we ended up getting something at Rusty's market to have the next day for breakfast. As I said, I think these may be one offs.

Oh, and on the upside, the outdoor bar facing the Esplanade was a really great way to finish the day!

To all the staff of Doubletree Cairns, thank you for making our stay very memorable. Thank you for sending a bottle of wine and chocolates for 2 consecutive nights. We are really touched. Indeed, you made our 8th wedding anniversary extra special. Thank you too to Eyerusalem for always checking on us and making sure we are all okay during our stay. All the staff are really nice from the reception to concierge and to housekeeping. Keep up all the good work!

Stayed here for one night for work & had previously heard good things. I ended up a bit disappointed with the whole experience, my room had views of the next door hotel and with floor to ceiling windows i felt I had no privacy so had to close my curtains for darkness to have privacy. I was given a double standard room for 1... and the bathroom was so fine & pokey it was awkward. The shower had good water pressure, but the layout was terrible you can't move around freely and if you're a big person you will struggle. The bed was comfy, pillows were average but more too soft for my standard. I ordered room service and was completely disappointed with my meal, Caesar salad with grilled salmon with no anchovy dressing and mayo instead was delivered to me as Caesar salad, no anchovy dressing, no mayonnaise and a lump of cold salmon. Not good enough.
The gardens in the middle of the hotel were beautiful. Oh and you get a macadamia cookie when you check in... this was tasty and a nice treat. Don't think I'd stay again and will look for other available hotels next time I visit.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience about your recent stay at our hotel. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we're very sorry you were unhappy. Your feedback regarding the Room Service you ordered is particularly distressing and I have asked the Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef to look into what happened with your order. It is certainly not the standard of food we pride ourselves on. Thank you again for your feedback, we hope you will consider staying with us in the future.
