A one night stay

Posted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: We had dinner in the hotel, very nice meal and generous portions. Had a little wait but they were very busy. So just sat and had a chat.
Cons: Bathroom could do with a little "update" But in saying that, well cleaned and tidy.
Location: Central location, restaurants in abundance. Must do "helicopter ride". Very lovely place, found the swimming pool in the centre of town amazing
We only had the one night in Cairns, the hotel room was clean & tidy. The kitchen area was very tiny but was adequate for just the night. The bathroom was clean & neat. A little older in that respect but again clean, the major thing I look for when on holiday.

Pros: Location, service and facilities

Very pleased with our first stay and we plan to stay again next trip to Cairns. I have previously stayed at another place on the cairns Esplanade 86 times since 1999 but this other place has lost my business now. I will be using Ridges now.

A week in the warmth of Cairns.

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Pros: The staff were great. The room was in good condition and had good views of both the water and the mountains. The bed was very comfortable. The food wa
Cons: More frequent shuttle bus runs would be helpful for those of us without a hire car.
Location: Ten plus minutes walk from the hotel is a large selection of restaurants, bars and an extensive array of shops, including the big supermarket chains.
This hotel is located a 10 minute walk from the commercial area of The Esplanade. There is a shuttle that will drop off and pick up around town - but it only runs later in the day. The desk staff were really friendly and accommodating despite our stay being in the busy season. We did not try the restaurant or the gym. Room service was reasonably priced and the food was tasty and delivered promptly. We had a room with a king size bed - the most comfortable mattress that we have ever slept on.

Coral view room is recommended. Easy 20-25 min walk to marina and most eateries. Free shuttle in the evening to go dinner and come back after dinner.
