6/10 Good

Amazing staff
The staff at the Rydges are lovely and very accommodating and they definitely made up for the challenges in the hotel around the aging of the furniture, the lack of decent bathroom ventilation and the uncomfortable beds, they are too soft. I found it overpriced considering the noted issues.

Short break
We had a very enjoyable week stay at the resort. Close to the walk along the esplanade and an easy level walk to the centre of Cairns. We had a lovely view of the water from our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Good value for money
Hotel is showing it's age however it suited our need. Pool was too cold for us even in May so don't expect warm water. However we can't complain. Fresh towels and extra coffe etc was provided whenever we asked for it. Room was a great size.

10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay
Great location walking distance to the esplanade and eateries, friendly and helpful staff - only thing that I didn't like is that as a staying customer I had to pay $15 for parking my car onsite for the night. I feel this should be free for staying customers as part of the service.

The room and beds are comfortable. However, the hotel is slightly dated. In-room care products could be better.
