This hotel is in an excellent location: between the reef tours wharf and the cruise terminal where there are art shows and weekend markets. It's a short walk to shops, restaurants, the night market, esplanade, etc. Views from the water-facing rooms are spectacular. The lobby is modern and spacious. Breakfast is delicious and has so many different options (traditional eggs,... More

This hotel is not up to other hilton hotels around the world, need total revamp including food standards, and rooms status. Restaurant serving breakfast is not very well organized and quality of food is very poor. Front office staff is very courteous. Rooms are in a dissappointing state. Need to train their house keeping staff how to arrange a bed... More

We stayed as a birthday celebration and what 'Housekeeping' did was just wonderful and a lovely surprise. A welcome Happy Birthday sign on the door, birthday card, Balloons in the room and a cake (made out of towels) made the arrival and welcome into the room so very special. Apart from the usual very high standards that Hilton provides upon... More

We went on a tour of Australia via Trafalgar which kept us extremely busy. The staff was always very pleasant after a long day. The included brunch was larger than expected and could accommodate anyone's palate. A 2 minute walk to the harbor where the majority of cruises are that go to the Great Barrier Reef. We were kept too... More

Great hotel for a few days getaway. Staff were very happy, helpful and courteous. Rooms were good, balcony an added bonus with lovely views over the marina. Breakfast was ample, but choose your times wisely as can get quite crowded between 8am and 9am.

Flaws in design starting with showers that have a concealed start button and tiled surfaces exposed to rain marred my recent stay at this hotel. Management are obivously aware of the problem with the showers as counter staff have pictures of the tricky mechanism on hand to enlighten confused guests. However there is no excusefor exposing guests to tiled surfaces... More

The staff and location really made our holiday special. Located right on the marina with easy access to so many lovely restaurants and shops. Supermarkets are within walking distance, casino is across the road, reef tours leave from the marina just a few minutes walk, night markets and weekend markets are close by. The room was well appointed with a... More
