Good hotel with great location and service.
Good hygiene and clean. Comfortable room. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. The restaurand has nice view and good food. Easy walk to Esplanades for walking or running in early morning or sunset. Short walk to Reef Terminal for island or Great Barrier Reef tour. My daughter like to walk to Night Market.

Staff are fantastic, I have never seen so many rude guests at a place and they handled them great. The rooms are old and in need of work but over all fine.

Poor 2.0
Rubbish Rubbish
I had free parking but was never informed at check in ! And paid for parking during my stay ! The only thing I was informed at check was to not call Sarah thank you darling which is not derogatory or demeaning ! But Sarah was quite adamant in telling me she was offended ! I apologised and that was that ! I picked the Hilton over other resorts because of the name Hilton ! But I was extremely disappointed ! Would I stay in this hotel again ! NO ! Breakfast was a joke ! Always cold and extremely inattentive ! Anyway ! Stayed at the Hilton because of the name as the name says 5 STAR ! But this hotel is very far from being 5 STAR ! Maybe call it Hilton Backpackers ! As that was how it was !

Best location and great service
Always enjoy my stay at the Hilton Cairns. The location is beautiful right on the waterfront and so close to everything you can just park the car and leave it. Rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are always friendly and eager to help. Would highly recommend.

Good 6.0
Wouldnt stay again
The hotel was old compared to others in the atea, the aircon was so loud and noisey in the room was hard to sleep, everywhere else i stayed in cairns offered breakfast from 6.30am exept at the hilyon was 7, so was unable to get breakfast due to flight time. Also went to convenient store in the hotel (as no mini bar due to covid) had to wait 10mins for service, asked the person at the front desk to help, they told us to wait. In the end im like to the person at the front desk you need to serve us this is ridiculous
