We stayed here for 2 nights in May. Had decided to only stay in Cairns for two nights then head up to Palm Cove but If I had known how great this place was I would have stayed there the whole time. Fantastic location walking distance to all the great restaurants on the Esplanade as well as to the Reef...

Stayed at the Double Tree overnight. Hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was a bit dated with some items in the bathroom not functioning properly. We were on the north side of the hotel. Unfortunately, we were right over either the main Air conditioning plant, or the pool plant. The noise was like a small plane all night,...

Hotel was nicer on the inside than the outside. Staff were friendly and efficient, room was clean and tidy. Rooms above the service driveway on the left hand side are effected by significant noise from about 0600 onwards

A very nice stay, friendly and efficient staff and beautiful rooms. The warm choc chip biscuit on arrival was a sweet surprise! I attended a conference at the hotel and even this was beautifully catered for.

Spent 2 nights bed and breakfast, food was clean and quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was a buffet style, good range of food available and all delicious. Hugh pond in the centre of the complex with some huge barras with feedings a couple of times a week, well worth a look.

Stayed one night in double tree for connecting flight. The hotel has a nice and convenient waterfront location. It’s a 10~15 mins walk to the wharf and on the way there are plenty of dining options. Taxi ride from the airport was about 15 mins. The building was a bit dated, but still nice and clean. There was a mini...

I've stayed here a couple of time because of the location (on the airport side of the CBD), mostly free parking outside (double check signage) and its only a short walk to heaps of dining options on the esplanade. Room is basic but spacious. Join the loyalty program for good internet, bottled water and cookies.
