We stayed at this hotel for a bit over a week and had a great time. The location was also great, not too far from the wharfs, restaurants, parks, and boats. The staff were all highly professional and eager to help with whatever you needed. We especially remember Ann in the lounge and her helpful comments and the great conversations... More

This hotel is in the best possible location for enjoying beautiful Cairns and all the area has to offer - a short walk to a variety of restaurants, the marina, the shopping centre, and best of all right on the boardwalk that takes you around the town along the waters edge. Room was good size, super comfortable, very nicely sized... More

Great location...close to everything we wanted to see and do. Everything was within walking distance. Hotel has a very nice lobby. We particularly enjoyed their Italian restaurant. The large pool area with hot tub was a nice diversion. This hotel is right on the Cairns boardwalk.

I think this is the first time in a Hilton where the staff checking us in seemed to really appreciate our staying at their property. They made sure we were in a room overlooking the bay and they moved our free breakfast to the main dining room as we needed to leave the hotel early for a tour. Perfect location... More

Hotel is well located, good value and the amenities excellent. The staff accommodated late arrival and check out and were helpful with travel arrangements to the airport. The only shortfall was the service in the bistro but the food quality and value was good.

I loved this hotel - the rooms are modern and airy with a great sense of contemporary style - tv had a number of channels and free wifi in the lobby area proved very useful as I was travelling on business. Extra charge for in-room wifi at AUS$ 14.95 per 24 hours. Breakfast was great with lovely cooked food and... More

The hotel was good. Warm friendly and accommodating staff. The food provide by room service was not very good (service was great but the food itself...). The Hotel is situated in a great spot - near almost everything.

excellent hotel very clean and room was spacious. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would be nice to have free wi-fi in the rooms though. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Ideally located especially with the Reef Terminal and town within walking distance. Room service was good and very much enjoyed.
