          Location

          Very tired looking. Advertised extension numbers for sevices did not connect us to the services wanted, all went to reception. No concierge as advertised. No help offered at all for luggage, etc. So certainly not 5 star service. Requested a queen bed only as offered on Booked.net but got a standard twin room. Paid the extra for Superior Water Views but did not seem to be Superior Water views to us.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The room was larger than expected and very comforable. The view from the balcony was excellent and the sunsets were stunning. The staff were always polite and helpful.

          The only thing we didnt enjoy was the temperature in the hallway. The airconditioning made it very cold. This was also a problem after our room was cleaned, the fan and airconditioner were left on making the room cold on our return. Given the time of year we thought this unnecessary.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          It was close to the main part of Cairns, walking distance

          I think it is overpriced for what you actually get. We had a similar experience with all the tourist sites we went too.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Room size was great. Staff was very kind and helpful. Had a lovely view of the ocean.

          Room decor is outdated. TV is old and had limited channels available. Bedding needs updating too.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Reception staff were friendly and very comfortable beds

          Service in Sea Level bistro unbearably slow even for a snack - when it arrived they had run out of an essential ingredient - their replacement without explanation, of oil and balsamic vinegar was not acceptable. Hotel is looking tired. Was surprised on check out that they charge a fee for using all credit cards. Tv reception poor, and bed sheets changed every 3 days without an option. Would not stay there again.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Location: close to lots of eating place & the Esplanade.

          We paid for room with seaview. Checked in late at night, we only realized in the morning we were given a room without seaview as the are lots of trees obstructing the view. The next day we were moved to other room with real seaview.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Hotel is outdated, there was poor tv reception in room. My parents are NZ Senior Citizens and even though I registered them with Rydges VIP they did not receive the free breakfast. Very dissappointed!

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          I think its great staying at the Rydges Tradewinds Cairns.

          One thing you need need get new all Tv in every room with subtitles in the future what happen to all deaf read the news with emergancy with the weather etc .

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Very comfortable, roomy, also very close proximity to all activities we wanted to enjoy.

          All was good, the only negative thing is I hate long life milk in the fridge, also the tea and coffee was not replentised on a daily basis.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          It's convenient to walk anywhere in cairns, location wise. The staff are friendly and helpful. We love our stay.

          At night when swimming pool fountain is off, I can hear in the balcony the noise of the generator or the building aircon.

        • Single
          6.4

          Quiet position on the esplanade...sea view....good town view from corridor...relaxing front balcony restaurant overlooking the sea...pool area well situated.

          Main front entry needs an updating as its shabby & tired looking.....front main-entry door needs cleaning and a coat of paint.....door from pool area needs painting and is diffucult to open as its very old and surpassed it's use-by-date

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          The hotel rooms were very comfortable, especially the beds. Also, although we booked a poolview room, the ocean was also right next to it and the view from the balcony was wonderful. The hotel is also very conveniently located with respect to the city center.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          We liked the fact that the rooms were so clean and the beds were comfy.
