Positive Reviews

Right on the Water

Guest reviewers consistently made mention of the location of this hotel. It is opposite the Coral Sea and the esplanade stretches all the way down to the Cairns Lagoon and exclusive shopping areas of the Cairns Harbor precinct.

Spacious Rooms

A number of guest reviewers commented that the rooms are very spacious providing much needed space to unwind. Some guests also welcomed the extra space to undertake a last-minute stock take before flying from Cairns International Airport which is a short 20-minute car trip away.

Pleasant and Exceptional Staff

A number of guest reviewers made special mention of the excellent service provided by the hotel's staff. Staff were friendly and helpful and a number of reviews specifically singled out the service provided by the tour desk as being second to none!

Negative Reviews

A Little on the Nose

A number of guest reviewers commented on the not-so-pleasant aromas they experienced in their rooms and around the hotel. Comments regarding damp, musty and moldy smells featured in reviews.

Past its Prime

A number of guest reviewers commented that they felt that the hotel was generally not up to the standard of other Doubletree hotels, that they had previously visited.

Food not So Glorious

Some visitors to the hotel did not like the food served in the restaurant and some had dreadful experiences with room service. A number of previous guests were puzzled as to why their meals where not full of fresh produce, given the region's reputation for fresh, amazing food.
