Great location. Very central to everything but without the noise of staying in the middle of town. The wharfs view was a nice bonus. The breakfast however was very average at most . The pool is located at the bottom level with stair access only.

This was an excellent hotel. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful from start to finish. We had a lovely room with a superb river view. The room was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. There was a nice balcony but it was often too humid to sit outside. The air con in the room was very...

Good hotel. The accommodations were good-not great-but the staff earned the extra 2 stars. Out of their way professional and helpful. And-as icing on the cake-the night we stayed there the fruit bats flew very close to the hotel and we had perfect view of the daily migration. For half an hour we stood and watched thousands and thousands of...

The staff make this hotel great. They are a credit to Hilton and a model on how to do hospitality right. During our three night stay we experienced warm and friendly service that exceeded expectations, particularly from Sayhl at reception who went the extra mile to accommodate some last minute changes for friends staying with us. The executive lounge was...

Great location! We went to Australia for the honeymoon. It is walking distance from Esplanade and reef terminal. Breakfast spread was really good and lavish too. There was no wifi in the room though and they do not even give many bottles of water to drink. You usually have to buy water bottles from the supermarket at a cheaper cost.
