Everything was great, from checking in to the clean rooms, the meals. The young man in the restaurant Kai may be his name was fantastic, it was very busy on the Saturday night, he took orders, delivered meals and drinks and was never flustered. I would say a great employee.

Hotel needs a revamp. Rooms are very run down and old looking. Very hard to get room service Or service in the restaurant of a afternoon with only one person working the food till, room service runs and the bar Hotel is a good central location. Beautiful front pool, it’s a shame the swim up bar isn’t open Back pool very hard to find

I have been a member of Rydges priority club for long time and stayed in different Rydges in the past and never had any problem.I was really disappointed to see the quality of Cairns Rydges Esplanade. I booked this to enjoy my Birthday along with my friends.I was quite embarrassed. 1.Room was not cleaned properly. 2 Room—917–Bed sheet was dirty with obvious stained. 3.Room- 918 —Cupboard door was loose and hanging. 4.Not enough amenities-tissue box 5.Cups looked dirty. 6.Paid for parking but very hard to find a parking. I have informed the reception on our arrival night. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to visit in here in future. Regards Nazneen Neela

Stayed recently for week on holidays at Rydges Esplanade Cairns, ocean view room out to Green Island, good location with leisurely walk along esplanade about 20 minutes to wharf for island and reef tours. Staff were all excellent from front desk to bar and restaurant staff, no issue was a problem. Good breakfasts to start each day. The 2 pools, the larger lagoon pool very accomodating to relax in and around after day out exploring the beautiful Cairns region. Would stay again.
