Staff were well mannered, professional and the room was clean. That is where the good comments end. We paid extra for a spa room and breakfast. $300 a night. The room was set out like an office with a king bed. The spa was small so only one person and you wouldn't want to be bigger then 5 1/2 foot. It leaked too so water drained out slowly. The tv was old with only a few working channels. It had inhouse movies that were $15 each. We took a hard-drive but no USB port. Breakfast was cold when we got it and not worth the extra money We went out and bought a dvd player to plug hard-drive into. But they have it set so u can't use it. We planned for one day to veg out in the room all day, as we were paying for it. But we were bored. Pool was in the shade and the pool bar was closed which means no music,hence no atmosphere.the only music allowed to be played was through headphones I'd pay $150 for the room only for the view and position.

Disappointed 45 mins wait time to check in, Gin Dinner we weren't on the list even thou we paid. We did however get in. We were promised a view we got a city view nothing fantastic. no milk no water in room. Breakfast we had a $50 voucher but not on booked list yet she wrote it down when we checked in. Breakfast no water or pepper and salt. Then we see palm trees have been chopped outside and garden not looking great no water in chapel pool. Freaking for reasons... customer service tops. Over all was a peaceful sleep. No local rate for us even thou we live meters down road. I have to admit all the faults it was a lovely night... Would I go back yes I would...

My family recently stayed 3 nights at the Hilton Cairns hotel. Extremely disappointed with our stay. Very noisy, the walls are so thin we could hear conversations. The room service was unpleasant. Would NEVER stay or recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family. Horrible stay

We booked in on the locals rate and they acknowledged Townsville residents as being local. Just a wonderful experience from start to finish. Thank you all for the experience, the food, the service and the view. Kind regards, Steve and Arne

This hotel is conveniently located near the boardwalk, offering lots of restaurants and entertainment areas. The view from the hotel is beautiful. The breakfast was very nice and more than adequate. Definitely would stay here again.
