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

We stayed at the above property during our trip to Cairns Australia. The apartment is excellent, spacious. Both bed rooms and bathrooms were excellent, clean, the apartment was fully well furnished. Services were also good.

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

Please extend your complete hospitality service to others in your industry. I want to yell out to the rest of Australia, "Get your staff properly trained and go to Europe and see how it's done!" Even South Africa, Zambia and Thailand have superior service. At Rydges I received impeccable attention from all levels of staff. From Checking in to spending... More

Our initial concern at being led through a carpark, past the laundry trolley and skip bin was momentarily alleviated by our surprise at our enormous room with fantastic view of the ocean. Two huge bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, great verandah and big living areas - just great! A bit mouldy smelling, but we overlooked that and cheerily headed... More

I stayed in an apartment room on a Saturday with my husband and parents, and while it wasn't the worst place I've ever stayed it certainly wasn't the best. The view is awesome, but the actual rooms are very old and smelly - a hybrid of the mould coming from the air-conditioning units and my old grandmother! We were shown... More

Nice clean spacious accomodation with a well equiped kitchen. We had beautiful views from every window. The hotel staff were very friendly. The only negative thing we have to say about the accomodation is that we felt that the 'living room' could have done with a lick of lighter paint to brighten it up a bit. Felt a bit gloomy... More

I was trapped in Cairns for three days because of the cyclone Yasi,just staying in this resort.But the survice is so sweet that I did't feel scared at all.Let alone its perfect location(though I did't have too much chance to go to the beach),its comfortable room.It's really nice!
