The hotel is a modern design but needs to be cleaned up and renovated. The room was fine but needed paint touch ups and was not sparkling clean as I would expect from a Hilton. Staff was friendly and accommodating but not super efficient.

The room was spacious, clean and a nice size bathroom. Everything at your finger tips loved staying here and will definitely be back. Only complaint is having to pay for wifi. The bed was so comfy and as we were going to a show at The Plenary the location was perfect.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. We chose it because we are HH members due to our use of the Hilton hotel in Kuching and we needed to be on this side of the city. This hotel outdid its Kuching counterpart tenfold. Service was great, rooms were mostly clean apart from a few sticky spots on... More

I have stayed at many five star hotels before.. And I have to say.. Even though this was a comfortable stay.. The room didn't really do much for me.. Quite bland. The decor wasnt really inviting. No wow factor which you want for $400 plus a night.. The buffet breakfast was lovely.. And definitely warrants adding to your room purchase... More

Located in the new south Wharf complex with many restaurants within 100 metres of the hotel and DFO (if that's your thing!) next door. Well located for Southbank Casino. Rooms are well laid out and seperate bath is nice. Breakfast was good, but at $40 is pretty steep!
