Great stay, great value at Rydges Tradewinds
Great stay at Rydges Tradewinds, staff are polite and professional; rooms are clean and roomy. Wi-Fi a little patchy and property is a little dated. Location is great & quiet.

Good location, good view comfortable stay
Good view on esplanade and short stroll to all actions. Nice room n comfortable bed (our room had bunk bed as well, be good for family). The pool looked good but didn't use it. Staff were friendly n quick with checking in n checking out. However, trying to get more milk by ringing either reception or maid services went unanswered so gave up in the end. Also despite closing doors n windows, the TV sound from neighbours still came through. The rooms in need of new coat of paint n cupboard doors adjustment, we could hear neighbours' doors dragging on the floor as well as ours.
