Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is mainly a tip for Hilton Honors members. I stayed at both the Doubltree by Hilton in Cairns and the Hilton Cairns itself. The Doubletree was only slightly cheaper but the room very basic and dated and no recognition of Hilton Diamond stats at all. A miserable welcome. At the Hilton I got a fine room with a balcony, use of the Executive Lounge, complimentary chocolate, complimentary Wine and a warm welcome. So the Hilton is much better value!

Stayed for 2 nights here. Great location and enjoyed the welcome cookies that was offered. We had a twin double room booked and although the bedding was comfortable, the room especially the bathroom was so cramped. The room was crawling with tiny ants. Initially we assumed someone had left some food behind but turns out it wasn't. One of the nights we had takeaway food brought back from a restaurant. It was just some bread and the next day the whole takeaway container was filled with ants. They seriously need to consider pest control. The place also looked a bit outdated and worn down especially the lifts and dining area. Wasn't expecting this for a place having the name Hilton.

Very ordinary hotel. Room was not cleaned properly- toilet dirty-pillowcases grubby. I suspect the cleaners are not doing a full room cleaning service. I complained and was offered a free drink- I would have preferred a reduction in rate. Pay a bit more and go somewhere better.

Basic hotel but location is nice , few mins walk to the lagoon. Rooms were not connected though the booking was for a family. Only booked for breakfast which was just western one but nothing bad about it.

I booked this hotel from 29/Dec/23-2/Jan/24. We stayed for 5 days a week before at the original Hilton Cairnse. They pretend it is Hilton umbrella, but it is not Hilton. I paid the same money, but we got half services. Some services which was included when I booked are never supplied until we leave. Do not tricked of the 'Hilton' title. Whatever expect, they will break it.

Cairns, Australia87 contributions97 helpful votes
The Hotel is somewhat tattered around the edges and is VERY overpriced for what you get - even at the 'deflated' prices that were being charged in the immediate post-cyclone period. The location is superb - and that's the most positive thing about the establishment. The vast majority of the staff are exceptionally efficient and welcoming, however one staff member I had to deal with (at booking AND at checking out) was exceptionally rude and ill-mannered and made it quite clear that WE should be thankful that WE had been allowed to stay at HER hotel. We won't stay at the Double Tree again despite its' location, and we will NOT pay the exorbitant prices they are now charging - and nor will we have any dealings with that particularly rude middle aged woman at the service desk. The Vines Bar is over priced with 'roll-of-the-eye" style service - especially if you ask how much a drink costs BEFORE you actually order it. Location is great - but don't expect rooms to be any better than you'd get in a mid-range small town motel for much less than half the price being charged here. I'm a local who will be checking out alternative venues for future overnight stays.

Good place to stay for a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Comfortable hotel with a nice atrium, located across the street from the Esplanade and within easy walking distance from restaurants and stores. We appreciated their policy of loaning out pool towels for trips to the reef. Very friendly staff. Our room was comfortable and clean.

I did rate this hotel excellent as it was ideally located. Staff were and are excellent. Breakfast was very good and 1st room was superb with balcony and modern bathroom.Unfortunately our flight was cancelled so we’re thankful the hotel could accommodate us we had to move to another room/ yet one of our party moved into our old room which really didn’t make any sense Our “new” room was dated the bathroom was small with damaged sink had a grubby cracked bath.

Great hotel right in the heart of Cairns with eateries and access to reef terminal all within walking distance. Great gym area with free weights, machine, treadmills and also elliptical trainer. Large pool and adjoining spa next to it. No need to pack pool towels as these are provided in the pool area. Large pool and plenty of deck chairs to bake yourself on. Buffet breakfast was included in our package and it kept us fuelled for the days adventures. Everything catered for with fruits, cereals, eggs, pastries and also salads. Rooms are quite spacious and look like they’ve had a refit. Amenities provided in form of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap and moisturiser. Tea and coffee facilities in each room along with mini fridge. A flaw is on the tv… TVs are old and not smart therefore no access to Foxtel channels or ability to access Netflix etc. The hotel is kept clean and the manager Marlon did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable and relaxing after a few issues on arrival.
