      We were disappointed

      The hotel was very tired and in need of a lot of maintenance. The gym was so old and dirty we were horrified. Our room was clean but the towels were falling apart. The carpark was filthy and there is no lift or entrance from the carpark. The view was nice and the staff were pleasant.

      Nice place, bar and wait staff very attentive. Managers assist. Downside, no cash at all, thus all on card, credit card attracts extra cost.

      Disappointed. Don’t do it

      Tired. Towels were thin and rooms were not made up daily as stated on our hotels.com booking. Being in the tropics, these points are important. Don’t believe it was value for money even in our ocean view room. Won’t be returning.

      Satisfied guest

      This resort is well-positioned in the middle of the esplanade and a pleasant 10 minute walk away from many restaurants. The hotel is big and our room was spacious. It’s a relaxed environment and coming/going is stress free. The pool is really nice. A big shout out to the front desk worker from Portugal - she is super friendly, helpful and efficient!

      Review of Rydges Hotel, Cairns

      The Rydges Hotel executive ocean view room we had was lovely, even though the room felt a little dated. This room had 2 double beds (very nice if your partner is a restless sleeper). It was clean although I did find a thong (flip flop) under the curtains. The only negative was the safe. I've never seen this before, but this one had a lock which needed a key to open. This meant a trip to reception & would have cost $5 for key. We didn't bother. On a positive, reception organized a bucket of ice to be sent to our room at no charge. We found reception very friendly, we arrived early & they offered to store our bags in a safe locked room until our room was ready. The room had a bar sized fridge with a small freezer at top. There was a shower over bath. Toileteries, tea, coffee & sugar were restocked daily. Cleaning was on request, but as we were only there a few days we didn't bother. I liked this idea as this is being enviromentally friendly. Also pool towels were available at no charge (unless you didn't return them) via a simple sign-out & then sign-in process. Pool looked lovely, but we didn't swim in it. All-in-all a pretty nice stay, I would definetely return.

      Showing its age

      Showing its age. Whilst not dirty it needs a bit of love. I. Look out the window and the ledges are covered with dropped objects, the pool decking is very aged and the whole place is looking tired
