Customer service as expected @ a Hilton. The hotel itself is a bit dated and old but kept clean and tidy. (Balcony in our room could use some attention) Breakfast choices are excellent, coffee is great too. Choose the Italian on the Lobby level for dinner, real authentic and prices are very reasonable. All in all: Would love to see... More

This is a beautiful hotel in an amazing location right next to the water! The room was spacious and I loved the layout of the hotel. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. I would definitely stay here again, given the chance.

Our holiday at the Hilton was an awesome experience. Welcoming and friendly staff intent on catering for our every need. The building itself is steeped in charm and character. In an excellent location in relation to Cairns city.

This is a belated, but no less enthusiastic, review of our stay. From check-in, we were welcomed with smiles and, after finding out I was a Hilton Honors member, the check-in staff upgraded us into a gorgeous, quiet room and access to the Executive Lounge. During our stay, we made good use of the downstairs buffet breakfast - which had... More

We stayed using the locals deal and it was just fantastic. The breakfast included was great, the service great, pool bar service a little slow but that is not a real heartache. The room had a spa which the kids loved. Recommend.

I chose the hotel for a 2 day break from a remote work environment. The Hotel staff were welcoming and the room had a great water view. My room service meal was amazing, tasty and fresh. A good refreshing stay for my time-out.

The Hilton Cairns is a wonderful hotel, clean and comfortable. Perfectly located on the boardwalk. Within walking distance of dining, shopping and the pier, which includes all water sports, diving, snorkeling, cruising,etc. The Hilton staff is courteous and polite. We stayed on the 7th floor facing the water. Very pretty and quiet. The breakfast is a must. Very Good.

The Hilton Cairns location is fantastic, close to the good restaruants, close to the casino. The rooms were good with a great view and the breakfast was fantastic. The price we got was value for money. Couldn't has for anything more. Efficient, friendly and courteous.
