The location of Rydges Esplanade is excellent for families with young children as the wonderful Muddy's Playground is right across the road. Staff were helpful in booking day trips so we could make the most of our stay. We loved our time in Cairns and will return.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel location was good with easy walking distance to bars restaurants and shops Bed was comfortable. Overall it was a little noisy with loud children in the next room and the adjoining door not offering much sound proofing Bathroom is a little dated and needs renovation Parking at $15 per day, should be free for guests in my view
