Marie L. Solo travelers South Africa, August 25, 2015
Not good for a "Rydges"

Clean of rooms, restaurant staff friendly check out was flexible
check in time was 2pm and my flight landed at 4am that morning. I was a sleep in the main reception since 5am. Staff did not offer any curtesy to me. No one offered me a glass of water, blanket or pillow. I saw people checking out since 6am and no effort was made to help me get a room earlier. No compaction was show even after staff saw how tiered I was. I wanted to leave and go somewhere els but was told I had to give 24h notice. I feel that if you pay good money and don't get any service and you would like to leave they should allow you to do so. The rooms are cleaned well every day but place is very outdated with dirty carpets, outdated bathrooms and dirty ceilings. For the price you pay its a let down. The restaurant was nice and friendly staff. Very hard to get some sleep on a Saturday night as the bar turns into a dance club with a DJ till midnight and lots of loud young people swearing,drinking and hanging around. I had young people stay next to me that was trying to find their room at 2am and was knocking on all the doors on the floor trying to find the right room. When I complained about all the noise staff told me that it's a saterday night and people are out and that I cant expect them to ask that the music be turned down? I was offered earplugs! But customers that are trying to get sleep at a HOTEL are expected to pay??? Check out is 11am but they were kind enough to let me stay till 12.

a lot of cockroaches in the room !
I would not go back to this hotel not recommend it - I had a floor at the level of the pool (floor 4) which is infected by cockroaches.... I have killed 4 of them in different days in the room + my room has not been cleaned one day .... I would not book again in this hotel as this is dirty + noisy due to the club on the 3rd floor

Run down hotel in good location and nice staff

Location, staff friendliness, close to restaurants / shops
We stayed just for one night at the Rydges Plaza Hotel in Cairns and were upgraded to a junior suite. The hotel lobby is nothing special but staff very friendly. The hotel room, although it was already a junior suite, was very run down and old. Everything felt like it needs a renovation urgently. Carpet was stained, kitchen and kitchen utensils all bit dirty and very basic. Bathroom very basic. We did not try the breakfast. The pool was quite nice. Location also very good. But for the price it is not worth it.

Great Hotel!

Location, friendly staff, Views
Overall a really pleasant and great experience for us. The staff were very friendly and we got a free room upgrade on check in. Really tidy rooms and bathroom which were both updated and looked great! Always came back to a cleaned room and bathroom each day (noticed the floors had been shampooed too - which if you like cleanliness like me was a big bonus). Also the beds were amazingly comfy! Great night sleep each night. We loved the location as we were a short walk to the esplanade with the restaurants, the pier where all the reef trips etc sailed from and close to a Woolworths (which is great for us so we didn't have to waste money for snacks on our trips etc!).
