Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Overall, we were happy with the hotel. It was going through a renovation during our stay, so I can't say much about it. The hotel is dated and can use the renovations. It's an older style, with the room entry's outside in an open circle, so be prepared for heat as soon as you leave your room and walk to the elevators. The room itself was comfortable, and we had a super beautiful view of the water and mountains from our balcony. There's no hotel restaurant (at least of this writing), and the "Gin Bar" was staffed by young women who are learning as they get drink orders... but at least there were some VERY INTERESTING Australian gins to try. And there's a very easy walk to the main "strip" where most of the tourists dine and hang out. If I return to Cairns I'd be open to considering staying here again.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel was an amazing experience. Exactly what we were looking for in Cairns. We had originally checked into the other Hilton property in Cairns (don’t like ripping properties), but it was horrible. Came down to the Hilton and it was awesome. Great breakfast, great pool, good service. Thank you, Hilton Cairns!

We just checked out of the Hilton Cairns today, after a 5 night stay. First, and foremost, the staff at this hotel goes above and beyond and is truly spectacular. Especially the attendants in the Executive Lounge who were present and attentive daily to make sure all of our needs were met. Additionally, the daily breakfast and evening cocktails and canapés were a nice touch to our stay. Now, the not so great. Other posters have written that the hotel is tired. This is true. Even though recent efforts have been made to refresh the bedding and furnishings, the hotel definitely needs a full renovation. Secondly, and I’ll qualify this with the fact that it was extremely hot and humid in Cairns during our visit, there were air conditioning issues throughout the hotel, including in our room. The on duty manager did proactively switch our room on the second day. However, the humidity and a/c in the new room was not much better, and we resorted to using a pedestal fan in our room the remainder of our stay, which the hotel provided. It should be mentioned that the a/c issues were throughout the hotel, and other guests complained of similar issues in their rooms. There also was no air conditioning in the fitness center during our entire stay. This being said, a hotel of this caliber, especially a Hilton, should have sufficient cooling systems for even the hottest most humid days. On our fourth day the hotel’s wifi went down. The front desk gave us an alternative login to use. However, this login was limited to only one user per room. Therefore, we had to take turns logging into the service to use our computers (working remotely). This lasted the remainder of our stay and was still not working when we checked out. As stated above, the hotel’s stay is superior and went above and beyond to help us even with these issues. Because of the staff I have given this review 4 stars. However, if the review were solely facilites based i would rate it 2 stars.

Cannot recommend this hotel Sadly , upon arrival we checked in early this was the only plus after a long night flight. The room had a lovely view , the room it’s self was standard , the beds were uncomfortable room not great for a family of 3 , my husband & I had a bad nights sleep , both woke up with bad backs. The room was not clean my son suffers from chronic asthma, we know why he was suffering when we went to make a coffee….. see photos . Save your money would be my advice and go elsewhere the Hilton name does not stand out for this dated hotel , says on advertising refurbished… I’m not sure where they’re talking about . Room 328 under Mr Dean Webster .

I absolutely loved my stay at the Hilton Cairns. As a Diamond member, we were upgraded prior to arrival. We were also given access to the Executive Lounge. We enjoyed the delicious appetizers and complimentary drinks in the lounge. We also enjoyed a delicious complimentary breakfast buffet. The front desk staff, concierge, housekeeping, breakfast staff, and lounge staff were very responsive and professional. I’ve stayed at Hilton properties around the world and have never been treated so well as a Diamond member. I wish my stay was longer. We did two snorkeling trips out of Reef Terminal and a helicopter ride. They were an easy ten minute walk from the hotel.

The room was nice and clean. It was nice that they offered filtered water throughout the hotel. Daniel and Yuko at front desk were awesome. They took care of our every needs. The pool area was a bonus. I love the location, especially if you have booked for water excursions. Just a few steps away from the marine. Breakfast was really good. They have an Asian section, which was surprisingly good.

Enjoyed a nice stay during Christmas break. Staff was nice. Eena at reception took the extra initiative to help us get our laundry taken care of same day. Rooms were a older but the balcony was nice. Loved how bright the lobby was. The gym was small and had some older equipment but did the job. Location was perfect. Overall a comfortable friendly stay!

Hotel has a good view if you pick Sea/mountain view, location is the best, close to everywhere, Good variety in breakfast buffet, however staff are a bit slack to top up empty trays on breakfast, you need to ask.
