Good Cairns hotel

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Staff very good - check in / out very easy. Nice pool area. Nice onsite dining facility. Quiet and clean but well located for central Cairns.
Cons: Bathroom a little on the dated side but certainly ok and clean
Location: On waterfront esplanade. Few mins walk to Cairns centre and eating / drinking areas. Close to harbour for reef boats. Very well located for everything
We enjoyed our stay at Rydges Tradewinds very much. Suited our needs as a family with a 9 year old child very well. Stayed 5 nights. It was well located close to Cairns centre but away from any noise. Hotel pool was nice but water a bit on the chilly side. NIce on site restaurant / bar area at front on Esplanade. Balcony offerednice sunset views.

Cons: Customer services were poor and inflexible.
Location: Good location, easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and tourism booking agencies.
We booked through Expedia and when we wanted to leave a day early Rydges Tradewinds told us they couldn't change our booking without notification from Expedia. We did have to leave the day early and also had to pay for the night that we didn't stay in the room. The disappointing part of this experience was that Rydges Tradewinds were fully booked because of the Ironman and they could have resold our booking without difficulty and probably at I higher price than we had to pay.
