Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Overlooking the Coral Sea, Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns offers rooms with a private balcony and city, mountain or ocean views. I highly recommend this place. Clean and excellent facilities and service. The representatives at the concierge desk were always very helpful and friendly with any questions or requests I had. The location is superb, far from the busy city centre, but close enough that it is just a 20 mins walk to the heart of the centre. Right on the Esplanade, with restaurants nearby. The pool and the grounds are excellent. They have two vending machines at the lobby which is very convenient for something quick to go. Really liked that the room had extra warm blankets, a little fridge and a kettle. View was fantastic. They also have bike rentals downstairs. Also close to bus stop if you plan to go to the Botanic Gardens, it's just one bus ride .

Pacific Hotel Cairns

Hotel in Cairns

Located on the Cairns Esplanade overlooking Trinity Harbor, Pacific Hotel Cairns offers guests stunning views from private balconies and provides easy access to the nearby Reef Fleet Terminal,... I had a corner room on the 7th floor, with great views and a balcony facing the ocean and the casino, loved it. The staff was friendly and helpful and the bed was big and comfortable. Close to most things central in Cairns, a few minutes walk to the reef terminal building for boat tours and maybe 15 minutes walk to the train station for the Kuranda scenic train.
