Clean rooms and Courteous staff. The family and I arrived after 10pm and were helped to book in. By 11 pm we were in our rooms and able to relax. We will be staying 2 nights and will be editing review on our departure.

The Rydges Esplanade offers a great location and excellent view (if facing the water). Everything you will ever need for your holiday is in walking distance. The food downstairs at the buffet caters for all needs and even includes a great seafood selection and cooking on the spot while you wait. Staff have been excellent and nothing but helpful to...

Visiting Cairns first time. Rydges Esplanade about 10 minute walk along beautiful seaside boardwalks to shops, markets and restaurants. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Hotel neat, clean just a little tired decor wise. Plumbing noisy at times too. The bar and restaurant were good. Breakfast had a great variety available. Overall enjoyed our time staying there.

Flew in from perth for a family holiday. Needed a few nights in cairns before moving on to port Douglas. Nice simple room, friendly staff, and close to muddies playground for the kids. We booked on wotif and it was about 150 a night.

We arrived early and was prepped to have to wait for our room to be ready. Thought that's okay we'll have a cocktail at the bar. The desk staff were rude and grumpy. Still not wanting that to upset our holiday we brushed it off he said he would call to let us know when it was ready. After hours... More

The view from my room was amazing to wake up to daily. The Espy burger is to die for. Very limited room service menu after 10pm...no hot chips is a sin! The pool decking and area is a bit old and in need of a makeover but did the job I was here to bake in the sun. Would be... More

Great place to stay for a few nights business trip. Handy to the hospitals if your in the medical industry, and close enough to the city to walk to and from dinner. Try the room service Angus burger, amazing. The gym is a little dated with the machines. They've all got rust in it.

We stayed in the apartments for a family holiday, grandparents through to 7 week old baby. From the minute we arrived it was clear there was little organisation with reception and concierge, we checked in and the receptionist asked us to wait for someone to help us with our luggage as the apartments are situated next door to the hotel,...

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
