Knowing we were going to celebrate an anniversary and have a few drinks, we booked the bed and breakfast package. On arrival the staff were very friendly and we were upgraded to a suite up on a higher floor. The view was amazing, the whole of the CBD to Trinity Harbor,and the hotel was close to restaurants and shopping on... More

The hotel was centrally situated. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. There was plenty of choice for breakfast but most of the 'hot' food was barely warm even when I was the first customer at 6.30 am. The evening meal took far too long to serve even though the restaurant had only a few customers. The hotel is in... More

We had a great stay here for 3 days with 3 children and 2 interconnecting rooms. Service was great and the view was amazing. The kids loved the pool, though it was a little chilly for the adults. We lvoed the proximity to the lagoon and

Rooms very dated, poorly maintained and are dirty, smelly and mouldy. Bathroom is full of mould and shower fittings are broken. Bath and Basin were both cracked and badly stained. Cracked tiles, carpet with holes in it, mouldy and ripped curtains that are too small. Restaurant was very disappointing. Although there were only 9 other people in the restaurant when... More

If you are looking for a central position, friendly people, yummy breakfast menu, excellent dinner menu, then Rydges Plaza Cairns is the place for you. You need to be able to look past the fact that it is an older establishment that could do with a little renovating, but everything else is great. You get a great night's sleep on... More

Comfortable hotel, close to shops, lagoon and esplanade. Nice pool, a little cold though. Only had a slight issue at reception when arriving to check in around midday and was told quite bluntly that check in was at 2pm. We were not expecting to get straight into our room but thought we could get the paperwork out of the way.... More

I stayed at the Rydges Plaza for one night whilst passing through Cairns for work. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and quiet/ I had a private balcony (very small but let in fresh air). The beds are extremely comfortable in true Rydges style and the price was exceptional, about $134 per night. The room does not have much... More

Only stayed one night. We found the check in staff friendly and efficient. Beds and pillows very comfortable. The rooms are a little tired and could do with a refresh. The lining behind the curtain had a large tear and the bathroom roof could do with some work done on it as it looked mouldy. The fridge was nicely stocked... More
