The selection was vast including; oysters, prawn, crab, massaman curry, cooked beef, cheese and biscuits, a large array of tasty desserts and items cooked to order right in front of you among many others. Quality was very high. This was made better with the outstanding service - our table was promptly attended to once we finished a plate of food.... More

Loved the place and the apartment was amazing with breathtaking ocean views. Very large apartment with 2 en suite bedrooms, huge lounge/kitchen/dining area. Would definitely stay again. Very central for everything and near the Marina where we got the boat to the Barrier Reef - amazing!.

Cairns can be a bit hectic at times, with literally thousands of visitors streaming through every day of the year. This hotel is about 1 km north of the Cairns Marina along boardwalk. It has a large public park in front and access to the esplanade walk which goes about 2km from the centre of Cairns out to the mangrove... More

We loved our stay here, it has a gym and a pool with a swim up bar. The rooms were clean and the service was friendly. The only negative for me personally, it was a little too far to walk to the main resturant/ bar area on the esplande in a pair of high heels. Other than that a great... More

Rooms clean, staff very helpful but it's in need of a refurb - corroded taps, fixtures a bit wobbly, sofa has seen better days, everything a bit worn. It's also a 20min walk from centre of town so not hugely convenient. But it's quiet, pool is good and overall is "ok". Still for a Rydges I had expected a better... More

Being in military, I travel a lot, and when I return, I like to travel again (for comfort). My girlfriends and I often take road trips somewhere close to Townsville (Home) and most recently we chose the Rydges Esplanade Holidays Apartments. Gotta say, was impressed, between four girls we had a double double "Ocean View Room" which for two nights... More

We recently stayed 2 nights in an apartment which is basically 2 interconnecting rooms, each with their own bathroom, which was good to have. We shared with another couple so we found the room set up good with a lounge and kitchen between the both bedrooms. The apartments are a little separated from the main building of the hotel and...

This hotel was adequate for a one night stay. I was only in Cairns for 10 hours, and this was the cheapest thing I could find besides a backpackers. $10 for the shuttle to drop me at the door, and $20 for a taxi back to the airport the next morning. I arrived late and was greeted by helpful staff... More

I'm a Cairns local who stayed here for night recently. So poor is its condition that I would have checked out immediately if my partner was not already travelling there separately & it was too late in the evening to shift. Quite frankly, I am ashamed that guests are coming to my home town on holiday and they experience such... More
