The hilton has a reputation and as this was my first stay, I had expectations. On entry the foyer is clean, open fresh looking with comfortable furnishings - staff attentive, polite and helpful. Room - clean, linen - white and crisp Furnishings - comfortable and functional. To be honest, there was some age showing, especially in the bathroom with the...

Cleaned our room right away when we asked. Close to everything. TIP - the street that the front of the hotel has restaurants & shops including souvenirs on it that are a...

I stayed here for three nights in January, 2017. The location is superb, the rooms are clean with a refrigerator and coffee maker and very comfortable bed, and the hotel has laundry facilities for guest use. The gym is small and very well-equipped and the pool is nice. The hotel provides beach towels, which is great because it's very near...

I don't usually write reviews, but my experience at this hotel definitely deserves one. The staff here are hands down the best in Cairns. They're friendly, helpful, and honest.

While this is ri'ght on the boardwalk, this was not what I expected from a Hilton property.
