Positive Reviews

Great Views

A number of guests were really impressed with the views from their rooms, some had absolute seaviews and others had river/sea views, but all commented on the uninterrupted views of the water which was the highlight of their stay

Great Access to the Barrier Reef

The hotel is right near the port where boats take day trips to the Great Barrier Reef and many guests found this proximity very convenient after a long day of sightseeing. Many guests also mentioned the helpful tour desk staff who were able to arrange their day trips to Kuranda and the Daintree without any hassle.

Beautiful Breakfast

A regular comment across a number of reviews was the excellent breakfast available at the hotel, with many previous guests commenting about the quality and freshness of the food.  Many guests also rated the made to order menu very highly.

Negative Reviews

Lacklustre Service

The lack of attentive and prompt service by the hotel's staff featured across a few reviewers, were previous guests expressed that they were not at all happy with the level of customer service received during their stay. Some guests commented that this was not what they had expected from the Hilton brand.

Showing its Age

Some guests felt that this Hilton is starting to show its age, not only in the wear and tear on furniture, but also some guests felt that the decor is very dated and is in desperate need of a facelift to bring it into line with the modern style of contemporary five star hotels.

Maintenance Issues

Some guests came across number of broken items or items in need of fixing during their stay and mentioned these in their reviews. Some felt that the broken and non functioning air conditioning units, broken fridges and stained carpets were completely unacceptable for a 5 star rated hotel.
