Room cleaning every 3 days & poor location

by Chris B on 19 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

Hotel is off the pace and a good 1+km to the heart of Cairns where all the activity is. There are few restaurant options close. When I called reception to query why my room had not been cleaned, I was told that unless I explicitly put the "clean my room" tag on my door, my room would only be cleaned every third day. The surly staff member did not care that I objected to this policy particularly when I told her that the service directory states that "putting noting on your door meant that you ...

First night in Australia

by RachSteaders on 17 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

Upon arrival to the hotel I was directed to my room, it was comfortable and overlooked the pool. The hotel is situated close to the boulevard and outdoor gyms, it's only about 20 minutes walk along to the main shopping area. It has plenty of food eateries and outdoor BBQs close by also. Has great links for dya trips including the Great Barrier Reef too. The best part about this short stay was the breakfast! Tasted amazing, especially the pancake machine. Keep an eye out for the fruit bat po...

Family friendly

by Mandy B on 14 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We (2 kids, 2 parents and grandma) had a lovely family holiday in a 2 bedroom apartment.

Friendly staff and a good choice of pools. tennis court looks a bit sad. Enjoyed a good meal one night and my boys learned to crack crabs for the fir...

Good hotel

by Annamaria O on 08 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Stayed here one night, hotel staff was friendly and let us check in early and took care of all our luggage. About a 15min walk to the city center. The rooms are well kept. The concierge was helpful in booking our transport.

The good and the bad... Classic Rydges

by oj_sb on 07 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We've stayed in many 4* Rydges over the years and they all seem to have the same good points and bad points. Rydges Esplanade Cairns is no exception. Good: Bar, and restaurant including breakfast was good and of a 4* expectation. Outlook and location were quite good. Staff were very friendly. Free onsite parking was a massive bonus for us. Bad: Every Time Rydges! Why does check in and check out always have to be a lengthy, annoying process? Rooms are very large but extremely dated and seriously...
