We would highly recommend that you stay at the Hilton! Nothing was too big or too small for the staff, and they were more than happy to assist at the drop of a hat. The rooms were beautiful, spotlessly clean and the beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept on. It is right on the water and very close... More

Stayed at the Hilton Cairns for an Industry Conference. Took the opportunity to have a break with my adult family. Absolutely super, friendly and knowledgeable staff and service. The Conference went without any problems. The Family also enjoyed the Facilities that were there. Great service.

I stayed in April 2014 and had a very enjoyable time. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had a spa-room on the 8th floor and was very pleased with the ocean facing view. I would say that the only negative is that I would have like more variety in the food available, but still, it was very... More

I appreciated the friendly and efficient service of all staff that I came in contact with - from the Concierge & Valet Parking, front desk staff, breakfast servers and the room cleaning. Also, very handy location to Cairns city shops, restaurants, tourist office bookings, etc.

A beautiful location with equally beautiful facilities(we were on the 8th floor in a spa suite), with a late check out and a locals deal including a buffet breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and only wish I had such comfortable bedding at my house!! Can not fault the establishment and the facilities.

Noting too wrong with the hotel except for the breakfast. It wasn't what I would expect from a Hilton. Overall it wasn't worth the price but then it is a Hilton. You expect it to be pricey. The location is really good though and if you can manage to get room with a nice view (like I did) then it... More
