Stayed here for 3 days for a conference and it was perfect. Nice and quite, away from the main town. But walking distance to everything, including the Convention Centre, pool and parks. I was upgraded to the Exec floor, which was fantastic. Rooms are clean, tidy and sophisticated. Nice views! Very friendly and helpful service.

Had a week long stay at the Hilton, staff very helpful and welcoming. Great location and close to Marina and the shops, restaurants in Cairns.

We booked a last minute special rate of $219. The room was clean with a king bed and a pleasant view across the city to the mountains. The furniture was very old and battered, and the bathroom very very tired. Still..... The most disappointing thing was the internet service. We paid $15 for the premium service but found it to...

Seriously, the best hotel experience we've ever had. We stayed in the Hilton Premier Executive Suite. The views reached down the harbour. We saw a yacht race, ferries coming and going, people fishing and walking along the wharf and we saw the large cruise ships pass by our window. The staff were efficient, attentive and could not be faulted. The... More

This is a very nice hotel with excellent location if you want to snorkel or dive the reef. It has a hot tub and a very nice pool as well. Great restaurants near by. The lobby is very contemporary and great for having a drink.
