Very good 8.2 From 635 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
great hotel
We stayed at the room three, but there were only two set of towels/amenity/bath robes in the room. I called reception, and it was sort out quickly. The room was good. The breakfast buffet was great, there was even donut bar! Not happy with extra charged a Latte. Overall it was lovely stay. The deposit upon requested at check in time hold long time by hotel, even our stay was a week ago.

Great place, great executive lounge
What an amazing stay. We had access to executive lounge and thank goodness we did, service was brilliant and Gemma In the lounge is one of the best we’ve ever encountered. With canapés and drinks from 5:30pm til 7:30pm it’s a nice way to end the day, the sunsets are a bonus! Our room was comfortable and the bath tub a bonus! I brought my partner up to celebrate her birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make it special. Check in was great, Yuko knew her stuff and her knowledge of the area was great. I highly recommend staying here.

Very good 8.0
Very satisfied and pleased
Far better than Rileys, wish I had stayed there an extra night instead of expecting an even greater end to my ultra, specially planned weekend. The Service super, great wide beds instead of 2 narrow singles in Rileys. Feared to turn and fall out all night. Highest congratulaions to the Hilton. You will see me again. Sakicoco

Will stay again.
We had 2 interconnecting rooms for our family. They worked perfectly. At $150/night/room, it was a bargain. Yuko on reception was excellent, and the concierge guys were all very helpful. Gin bar waitress from Iceland, sorry I forgot your name, was knowledgeable about the area and made us feel very welcome. Only issue was food order at Mondo came out irregularly, so some were finished before other meals arrived. Overall a good experience and will stay again.
