2nd time at Ridges Tradewjnds
Really enjoyed our stay both times.Our only issue thus last time was the grinding pipes above us waking us up at night.We were in room 427, presume it was the floor above flushing their loo. I think this was about to be fixed.😆

Very old
Our room had patches of paint missing off the ceiling, badly worn carpet and grubby bathroom. The aircon is overly noisy and fails to properly cool which does not bode well in SUNNY CAIRNS. This hotel offers a lousy GO-GREEN discount of only $10 per day if you decide not to have ANY servicing of your room on a day by day basis. Their trick here is that the discount is then only taken off any FOOD and BEVERAGE charges you apply to your room charged up from their below average restaurant and over-priced bar. So if you don’t eat or drink in the hotel you get no discount. It also does not apply to pre-paid breakfast, room service or stuff from the mini-bar. They also offer a PRIORITY GUEST REWARDS membership/card which offers 20% off FOOD and BEVERAGES but if you run up a bar tab and don’t eat then no discount is applied. We went to dinner with friends (also hotel guests) and they paid for the food and got the discount, but I paid for the grog and got none. PS My bill was twice as much as the food bill.

Great Stay!
Great location, staff were lovely. Rooms need a fresh coat of paint but were spacious with a great balcony. I would definitely stay here again.

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.

Just a quiet night together with my queen.
Nice hotel in a great position but service could be more welcoming and breakfast area needs improvement.

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.
