    Disappointing

    I’m usually happy to stay at Rydges- they are typically a bit older, but clean and the service is usually great. Unfortunately this stay at Rydges was disappointing- largely because I think they must be under staffed. Our check in was appalling- we waited for 90 minutes for our room to be ready and it was up to me to follow up twice before it was ready. The following day, upon returning from a day out, our room had not been made up, I called and was informed that we should have been told at check in,having the room made up is now only on request. The cleaner did make her way to our room but was called away mid clean to do something else. Bar service was slow - again only one staff member on. A tough situation for them I’m sure, but charging hotel prices mean customers should be receiving hotel service...

    Fantastic Stay - Fantastic Views

    Me and my husband had a great stay. The room was nice and big and the sea view was stunning - especially the sunrise every morning. The staff were great and so were the facilities. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this resort. Thank you Rydges for a memorable stay in Cairns.

    Room big, Bed comfortable and reception staff helpful. Rubbish was never taken out , even though we opted for room clean every other day. When our room was cleaned didn’t seem like it was.
