                      5.0

                      Value for money

                      Service is average. As an example - we were staying at the pool and the guy came to repair something. He was drilling for like an hour, and this could have been done in early hours, when no guests are there. Towels were not left in a room by cleaners and only brought in after we called Hotel is very cold inside because of air conditioning, it feels not comfortable to get there from hit outside. I got a cold at the end

                    • Older travelers
                      10.0

                      I was recovering from surgery & the lovely staff made me feel so welcomed. Each morning, after an amazing sleep on your divine mattress, we enjoyed drinking coffee, while watching majestic sunrises over the water. Even the birds were magnificent. As I could not walk too far, staff were very happy to phone for taxis, which arrived so quickly. many thanks again for a wonderful getaway.

                    • Single
                      8.2

                      Your staff are excellent, particularly Nick in the bar. Indeed all your staff seem more than competent except perhaps a few clumsy waitresses and house staff not really respecting guests. Overall, hotel a little tired looking but staff made up for it. Would have stayed longer but booked out.

                    • Family with children
                      7.8

                      Hotel location is very good, it is no more than 10 to 15 min in cab from airport, the staff are friendly and polite, my nephew and I decided to stay another 3 nights in this hotel, 1 because of the price offered and 2 the good location for the town, would probably use this hotel again

                      The gym is rather dated, but you can still get a work out, and it is such a shame that the pool is not heated, but then I don't think many pools are!!!

                    • Couple
                      9.2

                      The hotel is near the beach,Services / facilities is good, the swiming pool is good

                      The position is a little far away from the city center.

                      the staff were extremely helpful. even thought I did not stay teh 3 nights, thewy were obliging and helped to arrange other accomodation.

                      it felt tired; decor, lighting wasnt the best in the bathroom

                      The room was very spacious and nice outlook. The bed was a king size and very comfortable. The shower was very large. The walk from the hotel into Cairns was about 10 minutes but a very pleasant walk along the boardwalk.

                      Everything was very good.

                      Your staff were very friendly and gave excellent assistance to my elderly father and me in particular I would like to make comment about Neil at the service desk he went far beyond anything I have had the pleasure of experiencing as to the help he gave , knowledge , and generally made our stay worthwhile .

                      The food was ordinary at times bland and we only ate there twice

                      Large room, nice view. Good bar, great pool, nice gym. Great beds.

                      Room not really clean, noisy. Bathroom full of mould,hairs in the bath. Asked for the room to be vacuumed, did not happen. About 15 minutes walk from boulevard, 20 from city centre. OK for me, but maybe not for everyone.

                      It was very nice.

                      I thought that restaraunt staff should of explained the buffet to us as we were not given an option.

                      Great location, nice lobby, pool, staff, restaurant, bar. Safe walking area-- beautiful view of Cairns.

                      A bit worn around the edges.

                      The staff very friendly and helpful very clean rooms lovely views of the ocean out your balcony door and lovely park across the road where you can go for your walk or jogs there is everything in the resort like the spa/ gym/ hairdresser/ gift shop/bar etc the bathroom linen was change every day if you want it the staff always had a smile on there face wehave got to go back up next year for a wedding 8 of us and we will be staying with rydges resort again

                      The only thing we found wrong with the rydges was yous dont have cheap meals we thing it was over price 19 dollers for a steak burger and 49 dollers for a buffet dinner and we noticed the two nights we eat there and shared our steak bugger there wasnt to many people eating in there may be if you bring your prices down abit you get more people the other thing was we werent told you had a shuttle bus to take you to the city at 3, 6 ,9 pm if we know that we would of went out at night to the casino

                      Have stayed at the Rydges Esplanade several times over a period of approx 5 years. The location is superb - directly across from the beach and close enough to walk to all the eateries Cairns has to offer along the Esplanade.

                      Felt that the Fire & Ice Banquet was not up to the standards of previous visits. A little disappointing considering that this was one of the features of the hotel that we were really excited about experiencing again.

                      Loved everything from the friendly staff to the clean rooms during the time we were there. Definitely the place was value for money. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone.

                      Only that it wasn't a walking distance to the city central for shopping purposes. Catching a cab was a bit costly.
