Disappointed

Location, location, location

Hotel has a prime position on the Cairns Esplanade but is old, dated and needs refurbishing. Over bath showers are difficult to get in and out of for some guests. Room was noisy, with heavy slamming doors. The restaurant food was caffateria quality at best. I ordered red throated emperor, which was overlooked and very dry as was my husband's meal of spare ribs. Food generally lacked flavour . The Pina Colada Cocktail for which I paid $15, tasted like cold, watery cream and was devoid of any flavour whatsoever. Possibly the worst cocktail I have ever had. In saying that, the staff from front of house, cleaners, bar and wait staff were all very courteous, friendly and helpful with nothing too much trouble.

towels were rough, room was noisy, female reception staff was rude. I requested early check-in in advance and followed with a phone call and all was confirmed until I arrived and was then rudely dismissed.

I think for an older hotel in need of a refurb Tradewinds does the best it can. Rooms are a little outdated and looking a bit tired, but this is reflected in the pricing and in all other aspects the hotel lives up to its reputation.
