My family had a good time at Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns. The room space is comfortable. we enjoyed the gym and spa functions there. The only unsatisfied thing was they should prepare the toothbrush and toothpaste for guesses.

The first room was not good it had 2 single beds but we were upgraded for a little extra money and we were put in a sea view room which was perfect.

After travelling with my elderly mother around North Queensland for a week, this hotel provided the perfect night in Cairns prior to our departure from Australia the next morning. Lovely big room, excellent staff and fantastic views over the ocean - they all combined to provide us with a relaxing and rejuvinating final night of comfort. We were both very happy indeed!

I felt we were really well looked after right from the time when I first asked to inspect the room until we left. I was staying with my ninety year old mother with walking difficulties and we were offered assistance when ever we appeared. The restaurant offered excellent choice. Sitting on the 10th floor balcony looking out over the esplanade and right out to sea was very relaxing. Just across the road was the sports area and playgrounds. We both enjoyed it very much thank you.

really great value and the view- i choose the mountain view, also can see the beach view as well. Big and comfortable king bed, sleep very well. Nice and helpful staff. walk 10 to 15 mins to the city center, close the beach side, and swimming pool. Taxi from domestic airport only $19 dollars better than take the bus.

Spent 1 night here during a conference. Apart from the room needing some refurbishment (particularly the carpets) it was clean and comfortable for the price we paid. Location on the esplanade is good, car parking was easy, restaurant was a bit pricy, but all restaurants in Cairns are. Staff were great!

We enjoyed the food & location of hotel. Unfortunately we found food under the bed from previous customers. Room comfy & service from front desk very good.

found this hotel just ordinary,staff were understaffed and srvice very matter of fact. rooms large and clean so thats a plus. big tip give the resturant a miss in fact treat it as you would the plague. sea food buffet consisted of a few prawns and some crab legs.used plates were allowed to just sit there. asked for a bee rand was not forthcoming.prob the worst buffet i have ever experianced.

This hotel is well located for walks along the Esplanade and the many restaurants located there. The rooms are spacious and the hotel has excellent spaces, inside and out, for sitting around reading, talking to friends, visitors etc. I would stay there again.

The room was very basic and looking very tired. The linen needed to be replaced, as did the towels. The staff were incredible though and the restaurant food really great. I have dietary restrictions and the chef was more than happy to accommodate my needs to make a delicious ad hoc meal. The spa is very average. The gym was closed which was a shame. It was a Sunday but most hotels have gyms open every day of the week. There were a lot of tourists staying there (I was there for business) but sound did not travel between the rooms and the tourist operators seemed to have everything under control. The hotel is a sort walk from the Esplanade which is lovely to walk around. The shops are an approximate 10 minute walk away which was fine for me. I recommend the Bay Leaf Restaurant on Lake Street if you are going to stay at the Rydges. That was a great spot.

The location is good. And I like the environment. Especially they update owner room to ocean-view room for free. That's wonderful.

The staff were friendly. The room was tired and dated. Being roomed behind the lift...I could hear it all night. The reception did not have connection for apple air computers and I had to locate and purchase same. The internet was VERY expensive..it has been my experience where the internet is a FREE service with most accommodation.

The rooms are nice, but their approach to service is still living in the past. Breakfast is $30 at the door, but $20 if i decide to book in advance ? does everything have to be a pre-planned package ? Also,Wireless Internet is only available on some floors, and the $2 coin slot PC's in the business center are from some bygone age. (why charge me by the minute when your PC takes forever to load a page). They can afford to be more flexible towards their guests. I wouldn't try to use this as a business hotel.

I have stayed here a fair few times now , it is a 10 min walk to the mall , I like the gym they have there, which has near everything you could hope for in it .

The stay was most enjoyable. The location was lovely as were the hotel and facilities. The only criticism was that when I paid the final bill, I had to prove that the buffet breakfast was included in the package which I had purchased, which was disappointing, but seems to occur at quite a few hotels when one books through certain websites. I highly recommend the hotel.

The 12 level hotel with mountain views, nice swimming pool and tennis court, I booked for standard room and got the top level with fantastic views! the room was very comfy. located north Cairns but drive to night market and city only a few minutes, about 15 minutes on foot. there is nothing I am not satisfied with, defenitely will come back again!
