The Staff at the double tree are absolutely amazing. After checking into another hotel and immediately checking out we ended us staying here at double tree. When we arrived at check in very late in the evening and explained what had happened Tavis the night time duty manager turned a bad day right around. He went above and beyond to get us a room upgrade and provided us a few extra goodies. His service was excellent you’d think you were staying in a Waldorf Astoria Hilton branded Hotel with the service he provided nothing was to much to ask. The room was clean and tidy and the daily service was great. The laundry facilities were adequate. And the included breakfast was really nice to. Thanks Double Tree Hilton Cairns

Despite having many day trips and activities, our highlight of our trip to cairns was the staff of this hotel. Not only was the package deal amazing value but during our checkin process, the reception staff were beyond amazing and personable to deal with. Special shout out to the lady who I think was the manager who had great banter with me about wine. Our morning breakfast experience was also amazing service. Shout out to the two young ladies one with short brown hair and the other with blonde hair. So professional and lovely manners. The customer service from this hotel is second to none and puts every other hotel I’ve stayed at to shame. Rooms clean and location positioned well with a great bar attached overlooking the esplanade. It’s not the newest building in Cairns but I can guarantee a better experience here than any of the other hotels around. I never write reviews but the team at double tree need to be 100% recognised for their genuine commitment to customer service.

This is probably the best hotel I have stayed at. The room was always cleaned when we were out, we got delicious complementary breakfast, the hotel staff were lovely and helped with anything we needed, it looked amazing, beautiful atmosphere and such a great location (walking distance to anything).

Dear Jasmine G Many thanks for taking time to rate your stay at Doubletree Cairns. It is always lovely to read such great feedback for team members and I have already sent a note to Sarah and Joszefs' Manager to ensure they receive the recognition they deserve. The Vine Room is a great place to unwind and enjoy a glass or two of wine and an delicious meal or grazing board.... so glad to hear you managed to spend some time in this bar & restaurant. Thank you - we do hope you choose to stay at Doubletree next time you are in Cairns!
