It's perhaps the worst Hilton I have ever stayed. Nothing wrong with the employees or service in fact that's what keeps it ticking . It's simply too old. The rooms have been refurbished to be fair but leaves a lot to be desired. Eating options are few. There is only one proper restaurant and a bar though the food there... More

Overall, the residence apts are spacious, has courteous and helpful staff, hassle free stay.

The staff were so attentive that you almost felt apologetic that there was no problems, issues or anything that needed attending to. I did happen to mention that the bathroom scales needed s new battery and it was done by the time we returned to our room! Generous sized rooms, huge bathroom and a fantastic view. Amazingly comfortable beds and... More

I have stayed repeatedly at the Hilton Residence sometimes for many months at a time. The appartment concept allows you to feel at home and discover the charms of living locally or using the food services provided. The staff is always very courteous and ensure a wonderful stay.

The Hilton Jaic is an excellent venue for a visiting sporting team. The accommodation provides a good mix of suites to accommodate the various requirements of a sporting group. The suites offer privacy while allowing for a communal area to relax. The food was excellent and pool and gym facilities also were ideal for a sporting team. Thank you.
