Location in a quiet area not far from restaurants and shops
Great location on The Esplanade, helpful staff, exceptionally large room, good wifi reception, and excellent cleaning staff all added to a very pleasant stay.
Unnecessary charges that would have made little difference to the hotel's bottom line such as a fee to use room safe and credit card. These petty fees only serve to irritate and alienate customers.
Good for Famaily
We requested a quiet room and got one - plus a great ocean view thrown in.
We found the beds too hard - although we still slept well.
Location great, bed comfortable, room clean but basic
Stained carpet, bathtub rusted around drain pipe, flush buttons on toilet corroded/mouldy.
Location and the facilities
The lobby staff did not help much, as if it was not their business.
Within easy walking distance to Cairns central. Lifts were very fast.
Quiet area, comfortable
A little too far from the centre
the room and view were lovely
Despite the resort being far from full, we were put in a room directly above the driveway and there were cars/buses/trucks/taxies coming and going ALL the time and well into the night. Buses and trucks would leave their motors running for perhaps 15 mins at a time. The noise became a nightmare as it diminished our ability to enjoy what was a gorgeous view and a very nice room. It also interferred with our sleep. Surely you could use common sense and use the noisy rooms only when the hotel is full.
We managed to get an upgrade to an oceanview room which was wonderful. Louise at front desk was very helpful, nothing was a bother.
Bed was a little soft. The mini bar food was far too expensive. If they really want people to buy the things, make them a bit cheaper. Some of the nut bars were nearly out of date.
The staff were excellent, nothing was a problem.
Bunk room was small, it didn't have a door.
Nicely furnished room, bar and restaurant well set up, location is quite close to Cairns CBD and there is a free shuttle bus to and from CBD.
Hotel requests you use air con rather than have open windows at night and this does mean you get really dried out, damp was affecting some parts of the room and hotel
Paid extra for Seaview but all we got was the city with the harbour in the corner. Also breakfast was $30 per person, and definitely not worth what we paid. We complained that the food wasn't cooked.
Very friendly staff and great location to restaurants and marina.
We found the staff to be helpful and polite, we had breakfast at the hotel and the food was great.
The place is past its prime and in need of some maintenance, our room was clean but the ledge below our balcony had what looked like years of discarded cigarette buts and other rubbish, took the shine of the view if you looked down, I found the bed to be uncomfortable.
The buffet breakfast we received as a result of the numerous problems and mistakes made by the management.
We booked four rooms well over six months in advance that were all supposed to be next to each other. Upon arrival we were told that only two of the four rooms we booked were ready and that we would have to wait until they could get other rooms available. An hour later we finally had the two extra rooms on completely different levels. Staff could only apologise and offer the excuse that it gets very busy during the holiday period. When we arrived we paid the full cost of our stay. When we went to checkout the staff then tried to charge us over $400 again saying that we had not paid for the rooms and that we would not be able to leave until it was paid. After producing the receipt from when we checked in we were allowed to go. We also asked how much to use the bicycles at the front of the hotel and were informed $15 for an hour or $60 for 3 hours (This makes no sense at all). When we went to use the bicycles the next day different staff told $30 for an hour and a whole different set of prices. Is it that hard to have a price list and stick to it Rydges Esplanade? Again another problem. All in all a disappointing stay at what we thought would be a premium hotel. The mistakes made by hotel management in relation to our booking were laughable. It was only when we prompted them as to what compensation we would get for the stuff up that we got free breakfast. I would seriously consider other alternatives when choosing somewhere to stay in Cairns.
Location and facilities
Breakfast way over priced
loved the location - rooms were big and clean - good big bathroom, felt spacious and nice. Good big balcony and it felt like a good place.
The 10 am checkout time - seriously? what is with that? The restaurant stops serving breakfast at 10 - we were charged $30 each for scraps of left over scrambled eggs, toast and coffee and we were running around trying to get food as the servers were brushing past turning things off and taking stuff from under our noses. Cairns is a tourist destination and this is not a way to start a holiday - very disappointing so don't go there if you expect a laid back wonderful experience - the first day of our holiday was marred with an early start to be out of the room at 10 and then an appalling breakfast experience - so - property is great - service and attitude of staff and management towards creating a holiday experience a bit sad failure.
Close to the action
Got lost at night walking back to the Esplanade. Too many Rydges signs on top of buildings. Took a while to fing the right one
Proximity to town was good.
Unaware until check-in that the room booked was a self-contained apartment
close to shops, the city of cairns, walking along foreshore, close to tours, fine dining.
rooms comfortable but a bit dated, need remodelling.
nice view, great resturant & staff.
the rooms are getting a bit tired,needs updating
location, view from room, spaciousness of room, free parking
double bed rather than queen size - the evening meal wasn't great in hotel, probably should have ventured out to the many esplanade restaurants close by
room tired, big stains on carpet everything tired and old , def needs a refurb
