Good position, good view , polite staff. We stayed 2 days and had no electricity at all for 1 day. Only compensation we did not have to pay the $40 for our upgraded room which had a water view. The rooms and fittings need updating - very shabby - the carpet was almost threadbare.

The excellent CBD location and in close proximity to the reef terminal and restaurants is what makes this a great hotel. While it has had a refurbishment and present a modern style, the rooms are a little small, and the bathrooms very small. A great 5 star hotel but with a 2-3 star bathrooms.

location, appointment of room and overall service and facilities

stayed 3 nights in marina view room. Room size is good with standard Hilton decor. pillows too soft but can ask for firmer ones but otherwise very comfortable room. The pool is great and breakfast not too bad. It is close to the marina where reef tours leave and also close to the row of restaurants at the marina, the casino, the esplanade and city centre. Overall good value and certainly will consider going back there again.

Location is the best. Close to city, casino, and beach.

overall we are satisfied staying at hilton. great room view to the beach, close to casino and city. the restaurants not bad at all with reasonable price. nice and private swimming pool area. cons: we had unpleasant experience from the staff that worked in the travel booking information. from the body language she didn't seem helpful and act like we were not important. we just left her and made a booking outside the hotel. other than that we are happy and will come back.

5 mins walk to the marina where a lot of GBR tours operate. All the good restaurants are nearby. Rooms are a little dated but well kept. Cleaners leave little notes to greet you which was a nice touch. What was even a nicer touch was complimentary bars of chocolates presented to us in our last two days. Highly recommended.

Had a great stay”

Got a great rate on agoda, initially was for king deluxe room but upon arriving we were told the room wasn't ready and that they'd upgrade us, was a room with two double beds and overlooked the ocean. The view was spectacular and they also had champagne and chocolates waiting as it was my partner's birthday - a really nice gesture! The room was very clean, comfy beds, a pillow menu (though we loved the goose down ones provided), a balcony, large t.v and the bathroom had a bathtub which was lovely. Other reviews had complained about the lighting - I thought it was fine and gave nice ambience - travel to Bali and you will know what bad lighting is! Breakfast was included and was quite satisfactory with choice, but the pizza from the Italian restaurant downstairs was completely soggy underneath, like they'd poured a glass of water on the board before they laid out the base.. No complaints about the hotel though - we had a wonderful stay.

Very relaxing weekend away”

The Hilton is in a super position with great views of the harbour. The Esplanade with lots of restaurants and cafes is right alongside. If possible, grab a table or a takeaway from Prawn Stars - the freshest seafood you will ever eat - straight off the boat moored in the Marina. Apart from the pool really needing an upgrade, the hotel is comfortable and clean. Definitely recommended for a lovely, relaxing stay!

The overall accommodation and ambiance was good, the staff when you got to speak to them where lovely and attentive, but the whole place seemed understaffed. Breakfast was good but run out, try getting someone on a phone almost impossible, and in the wettest period on record no umbrella's, this is the tropics? Would I stay again yes but if a better offer was to hand I'd take.

Awesome stay”

Location, food, excellent staff

I've had the best stay at Hilton. The receptionist upgraded me to an ocean-view room (awesome!), and the room was spectacular. The view was excellent, and the breakfast selections were delicious - everything for everyone. I booked all my adventure trips just downstairs near the reception area, and I got to do all the must-do things in Cairns. I got to use the pool, although the gym equipments were quite old and unmaintained. The location of this hotel is awesome - right outside is the harbour and shops/restaurants close by. The staff were excellent - props to the desk staff, breakfast staff, and the nice housekeeping lady. I wanted to just stay in the hotel, but there were lots of things to do while in Cairns - Kuranda, Great Barrier Reef, etc. Staying at Hilton really made my stay in Cairns unforgettable.
