We stayed for eight nights in an ocean view room overlooking the street and boardwalk. Room was comfortable but a bit dated, bed good. Bathroom clean but again needed updating. Balcony was used extensively taking in the amazing views and sights. Room could be a bit noisy at night if you left the door open to take in the sea... More

After 13 days in a Land Cruiser camper I chose this hotel to stay in and it didn't disappoint. I chose a large suite and it was massive with great views and a very comfortable bed. The rooms are starting to show their age slightly but the pricing reflects it which is great. A very nice touch was that I... More

Just spent a week in a suite on the 7th floor at the Rydges Tradewinds Hotel in Cairns. Room was huge with 2 Queen beds, living and dinning areas, walk through robe and bathroom. Hotel is a little older and could do with some freshening up but the friendly professional staff made it a very pleasant stay. The rear access... More

We stay regularly at The Rydges Tradewinds and have always found the rooms clean and well maintained, staff are always friendly and it has great views over the Cairns inlet. If you join Rydges loyalty program you get you room at a discount rate and a free drink each time you stay.

We stayed at Rydges with a group of friends for the three day Cairns Amateurs racing carnival. Everyone in our group thought the standard of accommodation was good with excellent views, close proximity to Cairns City and a nice restaurant and bar at the front of the hotel. Good times were had by all!

Staying here for a week, the building looks new on the outside but is a lot older inside. Rooms are clean and tidy though, great location, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Great location, easy walk to restaurants and shops, right on the Esplanade. Good value overall.

The hotel is on the far side of the Esplanade, a relative quiet location that is only a short pleasant walk to the main entertainment area. Rooms are in good condition but the towels have seen better days. The pool is quite large and set in a pleasant tropical garden.

Staff very efficient and helpfull. Rooms are clean but are tired and need an upgrade. I stayed for eight nights and got an on site car park on seven nights. Water pipe noise from adjacent rooms woke us early on several mornings. I would stay there again.
