The hotel experience was above expected. The staff was fantastic, helpful and attentive. At check-in and during the stay Sina made every effort to make sure we were taken care of. Markus, Aaron and Zane also were great. The had an exceptional workout facility. Would stay there again.

We booked the day before, kinda last minute, without asking for 2 beds and a mountain view and we were given those! There were staff who booked tours and hotel pick-ups for us. The hotel also had good dinners.
Dear Winsie, Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We hope you enjoyed your overall time in Cairns. Kind regards Andrew Wallis General Manager.
Value for money”
Loved the beds, very comfortable. The bathroom was nice. The balcony was a bit worn and so were some of the facilities. Service was really good from reception. It's location was perfect for bus services to Palm Cove and Trinity Beach, and just a walk along the esplanade into town and to the pier for GBR trips. Would come back if the price was right :)
Dear Luke, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It was pleasing to learn that overall you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards Andrew Wallis General Manager.
Convenient and comfortable hotel”
Very good hotel but rather over-priced. We were dismayed to see the price nearly halved after we had made our confirmed bookings with no changes for what we first thought was a good price. Then we needed to include an extra bed for our son who decided to join us on this trip and we had to pay a further $50 a night for that. There was no waiver offered to us!
Dear Mallika, Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We do sometimes offer special packages and rates depending on the time of the year. I would encourage you to book directly with the hotel in the future so that we can ensure you are fully aware of the pricing on offer. We trust that you enjoyed your overall time in Cairns and thank you for choosing to stay with us. Kind regards Andrew Wallis General Manager.
Great view, good hotel”
Staff were great to deal with, the hotel clean and well presented. The view was amazing and really couldn't find anything to complain about. We were only here for one night, but would happily stay there again next time we're in Cairns. (That said, we usually stay further out and drive in - would probably only stay in the heart of town if we were only around for a day or 2)
Dear Phil, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The team here will certainly appreciate your comments. We hope for an opportunity to welcome you back when you are next in Cairns. Kind regards Andrew Wallis General Manager.

The property had everything I needed for a comforable stay”
Loved that there is wifi in the room, bath, iron, shower pressure was great, breakfast included, large swimming pool, excellent uninterrupted water views. It would be great if the safe can be used without having to organise the key from reception. Breakfast has a lot of options with a chef with make you hot dishes. Great staff and there are always a few people around to help. The peak times are effectively managed and parking on site was a bonus at $10 a day. Fantastic location and a short walk to the lagoon and several restaurant options.

Short walk to the beach, with a boardwalk that leads all the way to the esplanade and ferry terminal where trips to the Great Barrier Reef departs. Room comes with a ceiling fan, which came in useful as the outside temperature was high 35++degC, and the central aircon didn't seems to be cooling the room. But the aircon for the hallway and lobby was fine.
Dear Kok, Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We hope that you enjoyed your time spent discovering Cairns. Kind regards Andrew Wallis. General Manager.

great service! ”
The staffs are really kind and welcoming. The location is very strategic, 10 minutes walk from all the main attractions and foods. The service is superb, the pool is a winner!! Also they have the tour desk on the foyer, so it’s very convenient to book tours and activities.

On arriving early and our room not being ready the hotel offered an upgrade to an ocean view and although slightly more expensive was well worth it,the room was large with two double beds and overlooked the harbor and down town Cairns,just perfect for my son and I,my only criticism was that it was quite a walk into the restaurant and shopping areas, being at the far end of the town but as long as it's not raining it's not that much of a problem,overall my stay was very nice and inexpensive
pleasant stay at the Rydges Esplanade”
This was my second stay at the Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns. Check in was quick after I parked the car. The room and bathroom were clean. It is not located at the city centre, but there are many restaurants to choose from that are within walking distance from the hotel. I think the hotel provides a shuttle bus to Cairns Central. I was only there for a night, nice place at reasonable price.
Nice hotel, good location”
The room at Rydges Esplanade is spacious and clean. Good lighting. Friendly and helpful staff. It is near the esplanade. Have to walk about 15 minutes to the shops and restaurants. Like the free shuttle bus that takes guests to the city centre. Computers/printer are available in the business centre at a reasonable price.
Great location and nice room”
I expected a bit more for a four star hotel - but for the price i paid it was OK. The location is very convenient, right on the esplanade and a 10 minute shuttle to the airport for 10 bucks. The tour desk was very helpful and I recommend going to see the crocodile farm in the local area, Sunset dinner.
Very satisfied. Very clean throughout - friendly staff and great location

Value for money”
Value for money. Good location even though the hotel at the end of the esplanade, you still can have nice walk along the beach. Not a new hotel, but still keeping in good condition, shower room had some stains in the corners - need good housekeeping. Overall Satisfactory, would considering for next stay
