Hilton Surfers Paradise
Ranked #12 of 33 Hotels in Surfers Paradise
Reviewed 2 August 2013

If only all hotels were like this.....
This is my second time at the Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel. My visits were literally 12 months apart as I stay here for one night before & after the Gold Coast Half Marathon.

Stayed in the Deluxe rooms both times which had balconies and views of the ocean. The beds are extremely comfortable and you can be assured of a good nights sleep.

There is so much attention to detail, everywhere you look. We were greeted with glasses of chilled water whilst waiting to check in. Very thoughtful of the hotel to have emptied out the mini fridge as this allowed us to store my sport drinks. The pillow turn down and chocolates is also a nice touch.

We always elect the breakfast at Salt Grill. The food is amazing and the front of house service is excellent. On both occasions dinner was also at Salt Grill. I can never go past the degustation which is absolutely superb.

The staff were excellent too, with concierge providing some useful suggestions of restaurants and also assisting my husband with a spare charger for his Blackberry.

Having been a repeat customer I can say this place is consistently good, service is second to none and the staff go out of their way to help you. Looking forward to my next visit in 12 months time.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the deluxe room. Some even have a bath tub, though this will need to be...

Friendly staff, lovely hotel, great position. Overall the hotel was great however, afternoon tea/coffee in the lounge was very poor. The hotel made up for it when we went to the lounge for drinks and tapas later, which was excellent.

One of the highlights of our holiday in the Gold Coast is staying at the Hilton.We travel a lot and have stayed in so many hotels and the Hilton was one of the best!!We stayed there last April with two kids (11 and 9 boys) and from the moment we arrived early morning in the GC we rang them for an early check in and yes it was fine then got to the hotel and got upgraded to an Ocean view room (2bedrooms)!!!That was fantastic! Then the fruit platter was served with personal note , made us feel special:) We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and everyday the apartment was cleaned including dishes put in the dishwasher (oh complete holiday and relaxation) and everynight all beds have got chocolates ,kids loved it!!Then came the check out time, gave us a late check out and then free parking!!!We really had a fantastic time plus the location is central.Close to cafes,restaurants and shopping at your doorstep.After staying here we actually liked the lifestyle, we purchased and apartment that's got the same easy access to the surrounding amenities.Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

Both the service and the room (relaxation suite) exceeded our expectations. The view was fabulous, as were the staff. Nothing is a problem at this Hilton. However for me, it was the little touches that counted, and there were plenty. Highly recommended if you want a great hotel in this location.

It breaks my heart to write a negative review, having stayed at this hotel 3 times in the last 12 months the first 2 stays were hard to fault, but this time it felt as though we were staying in Faulty towers... On arrival, paid an upgrade fee to have a high floor, ocean 2 bedroom and then spent the entire night with a whistling sound coming from the lifts so could not sleep. Room moved to a lover level the next day but the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. House Keeping is non existent. On three occasions in our one week stay I had to ring and ask them to vacuum the room - With 2 young children there was sand and mess which a quick vac would have fixed, instead it became so annoying. The entire stay the balcony was never swept - we even asked for a broom at one point which they would not provide. Dishes were never cleared, it became a bit of a running joke how long they would take to clear a room service tray - the limit was 2 days.. Sheets never changed so after 5 nights I rag and requested, room often not serviced until 4.30pm doesn't work when trying to get ready for dinner, it was almost as every time you arrived back they were waiting and then knocked on the door within 5 minutes, knowing that you may send them away. Turn down?? was that when they came and threw some chocolates on the bed but didn't bother replacing towels, even though they were in the bath. Room not clean - clothes got filthy from dust when we unpacked and used the shelves, I would say house keeping is no more than a 2 star hotel. A long way from the WOW we got here 8 months ago. Pool and spa are great, although not heated very well. I must say the stand out was the Restaurant, every day the service was amazing. Also a note about the traffic problems - It currently takes 50 minutes to drive the 3km from SeaWorld to the hotel in the afternoon - will be great when finished but until then if you like hiring a car and getting around it will just annoy you. Interesting mix of staff - you really have 2 extremes great helpful staff at concierge, to the useless could not be bothered even listening front desk. I am surprised at the vast contrast to our last stay. Will be back on the gold coast in October and prob will look at Peppers Broadbeach instead. - Regardless of Hilton honours etc. Sad, as we have stayed in Hilton across Australia, Fiji, Hawaii and always search them out and recommend, this will no longer be the case

Room Tip: In the residences floors 20-35 have the least amount of issues with lift noise if it is windy

Dear Lowefamily2013,

Thank you for your review, I appreciate your feedback.

It is disappointing to read that you did not enjoy a great experience at the hotel in June. I apologise that the standards of housekeeping were not consistent and I have discussed this with those responsible. Feedback is important and I value the opportunity to share your experience with those of the team that can address the issues.

I note that you enjoyed the restaurant and also found Concierge to be helpful but were also let down by the front desk team.

I value the loyalty that you have shown by returning to the hotel and would love to see you back again. Please do reach out to me by email: chris.partridge@hilton.com so that we may be able to ensure your concerns are alleviated.

Best regards,

Chris Partridge

We had a small family get together in Surfers Paradise for the week. Vickey was great assisting me through the booking process when my cards decided to spit the dummy. The apartment was overlooking the beach but had the Hilton hotel building in the way. Luckily the balcony was big enough to wrap around the entire length of the apartment, allowing us to view the beach in various angles and directions. We were firstly offered the 30th floor but was taken to 20th floor to my disappointment. The mess from the previous tenant was not very well dealt with (quite a grose mess under the couch which was cleaned up quite quickly) and the couch pull out bed was atrocious. Having the mattress on the floor is a whole heap better. Having a washing machine, a dryer, clothes horse (albeit not standing; falling apart) were handy to have. There were great eateries and having two large supermarkets in walking distance also allowed us to cook in the apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed out time there and would love to return next year!

My husband and i had a great two night stay. We found the location amazing and the hotel was imaculate. The staff were very nice. People on here complain about the noise of the clubs below, we didnt find this an issue i think people need to realise this is Surfers Paradise and u r staying right on Cavil Ave ,u do have to expect there would be some sort of noise.Small price to pay for great location u can walk everywhere.
