We had a 2 night stop over here, while doing a trip out to the reef. Nice big hotel, conveniently situated directly across from the Esplanade. A short walk takes you to shops, lagoon, bars and places to eat, as well as the ferry point for reef tours. We didnt eat breakfast in the hotel, we found that the little... More

I was here for a week-long conference. The hotesl is nice, well taken care of, and clean. The pool and outdoor areas are great, the breakfast is good. I really liked that it was directly on the esplanade, and near the public lagoon pool. We were there just before the Cyclone ITA, and the staff did a really good job... More

Visited Rydges Tradewinds Cairns over the Dec/Jan break. Located toward the end of the Esplanade. Very good service. Washing machines and dryers on 2 diff levels, handy esp when most were in use. Kids enjoyed the pool. Had a bit of an ocean view from the room (level 6). No frills, just a clean room and bathroom.

Lovely room, we were upgraded to an ocean view. Staff was outstanding, very helpful. Great location, short walk to restaurants, etc. on the Esplanade. Noticed another review complained about the wi-fi; we had no problems, worked well.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Rydges Tradewinds. We booked an ocean front room and the view was fantastic. Located right on the Esplanade, dozens of restaurants and eateries are within two blocks of the hotel. The room was also fairly large, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom was big and clean. Check in/check out were uneventful... More

Biggest complaint: the wi-fi is not good. Whatever system they use in order to connect to the Internet is sadly outdated. My friends who had Apple products had an even harder time than I did in connecting to the Internet. If you're looking to have an unplugged vacation, then this hotel is fine. But if you are looking for reliable... More

I stay in Cairns often for business so I have a pretty good expectation of what Similar hotels offer. This hotel, was lacking in room condition, restaurant, and service. Some of the rooms and areas are very run down, with dusty and mould. Staff although helpful, we lacking management.... The breakfast buffet was always run out of various items and... More

Room was good size, comfortable beds, nice bath soap, shampoo and condition. The staff was so friendly and helpful,anything you needed they were willing to assist.
