Loved the Hilton, we did do an upgrade to a King Deluxe package, but our views were awesome. Our room was spacious and the bed comfy. The 6 degrees bar in the foyer had great bar staff and made our evening enjoyable. Our only disappointment was we had to pay for wifi in our room. The pool area is inviting...

Everyone one from General Manager to bellmen were great. Friendly and helpful. Beautiful hotel perfectly located. Really went out of their way to make our stay perfect in every way.

Lovely pool, wonderful views and great location. Watching the bats fly out in the evening from the city right by the balcony was a great fun surprise. Beds very comfortable. Didnt have breakfast but had snacks at the restaurant that were great. Would stay again.

The hotel seems a little bit dated/ tired decor but the room itself was very comfortable and clean. The fridge in the room was completely empty, no mini bar etc. There was a very nice pool area which is accessed via the 3rd floor. There is no bar access to the pool area but there is a phone where you...

This hotel has some great points and some lows, hence an average mark. The highlight was the balcony, although not particularly large it was a delight to stand here as the sun was setting and watch the flying foxes, (fruit bats), as they left the trees in the town ( seeing them was a joy in itself) and fly out...

My wife and I stayed here for ten days. It is a superb location for all of the attractions of the area. All tours, trips, car hire etc can be booked through a tourist desk in the lobby. The lady there gives good advice and is very knowledgeable. It is a good idea to upgrade to the executive floor (9)...

The hotel is in a great location on the edge of the waterfront/inlet. I was greeted by a very nice receptionist and was given an upgrade to the executive floor due to my Hilton Honors status which was much appreciated. I arrived around lunch time and was also able to have my room immediately, again great. The door staff were...

I'm staying approximately 70 nights at Hiltons world over per year, so I've come to expect some simple excesses, like free water bottles at check in and in the rooms. Here even in the executive lounge they wouldn't give me a bottle of water to go. No dessert in the executive lounge either. These are small things but are taken...

Wanted to stay in a good brand hotel down near the Marina/Inlet. Booked months ago when the reviews were generally good. Loved it how the Hilton emailed the day before so we could select our exact room, it's nice knowing when you turn up that you get what you wanted. Staff at the door and Reception are fabulous, very welcoming....

We had high and low experiences in this hotel. We loved the view, our room, the breakfast buffet and the staff. What we did not like was the long wait to have a bite at the pool (min 45min) and the fact that
