One can overlook the harbour at Cairns and watch the nocturnal migration of bats from the 9th Floor Lounge. Nature at its most spectacular. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff with above average pool and recreational area.

We had a substantial lunch, sitting outside, watching the world go by. The fish'n'chips platter was huge & the salad refreshing - many around us seemed to be enjoying their good-sized portions as well as the wide choice of drinks.

Great service, great place. Had adjoining room on corner top floor. 10/10 Fantastic location and all round no issues at all. Nice to have the executive lounge for a relaxing end to the day. Squeezing in a few activities was easy to do with the booking person taking care of everything

Which was a shame because staff were great, view was beautiful and handy location. If only carpet was cleaner, paintwork unstinted, and slight odour to some pillows. Several travelling companions felt same way, so it can't just have been us! Decent breakfast, nice pool - important given local crocodile and stinger issues. Outside of hotel needed some repainting too -... More

As a Diamond member, Hilton is always the first choice when making reservations for accommodations. The experience of the stay is very smooth and enjoyable, especially the assistant manager Chinmay. Thanks for letting me have a enjoyable experience. Also, the location is fantastic. Walking distance to the Marina. Lot of restaurants we can choose near that area. Highly recommendable hotel...

The Cairns Hilton has some of the loveliest staff and they always make me feel welcome and not to mention the convenience of being centrally located on the beautiful waterfront. The Hotel is clean and the rooms are lovely.

The Hilton Cairns was excellent. I would return again. I requested extra pillows (2) and they were delivered immediately. Additionally, they felt like foam. I'm allergic to feathers. The suite was beautiful and the view was breathtaking.

Clean, quiet and in a great location, and the staff are very courteous and friendly. Great pool facilities. The hotel is right by the water and very close to several shops and restaurants/bars. Would recommend.
