We booked when there was an offer on months ago and when we normally do this we don't get the best rooms in the house, if you know where I am coming from. But to our surprise we got a room looking out over the Coral Sea !
The layout of the hotel is not how you would normally drive in, thus one is in the side, parking is via an underground parking lot and easy to get back to the lobby, but you do have to bring your cases with you as there is not an elevator in the car park. The reception is large, simply decorated and plenty of staff to assist if required, nice looking bar but we never got to try it out. The room was spacious, clean a little basic but the view made up for that.
It is around 1 to 1.5 km from the town centre, but the walk is nice and flat and you can chose three different routes, taxi fare around $12 one way.
Not a bad place to stay will comeback again.

Stayed one night at this hotel and one night at their partner hotel: Rydges Tradewinds. Both had excellent service and very friendly and helpful reception staff. They even organised to transfer my big diving bag from one hotel to the other whilst I was away on a day trip (after a little prompting and suggestion as is generally needed in Queensland to get things done). Rooms were what you would expect for the price which was very reasonable having booked from popular discount website. Better room in the Esplanade Resort (which was actually cheaper price) over looking the sea/pool, although the shower was better in the Tradewinds hotel (more shower power). Generally speaking both very good and I would stay at either again (for the discounted price).

both the Rydges group hotels I stayed in in Cairns have very old carpets and in filthy condition.
The lighting wattage is so low you have a hard time reading anything without taking the shades off the lamps.. but it was easy to see the condition of the carpets.

We stayed 4 nights in an ocean view room. View was awesome, room is very tired although beds very comfortable. Reading lights not working via switches and furniture scratched and worn. Staff friendly and helpful and pool area is lovely although after about 2pm in the day it is shaded over by the hotel and so no good for sunbaking. They do have a shuttle bus that will take you into city 3 times a day, although it is only about 10 min walk from hotel anyway.

we stayed for 2 nights in an ocean view room. I opened the balcony to look at the view around. but then I have to get something else from the bed. my 4-year old daughter is with me at the time. at that second where I dashed into the room, she climbed up the railings which has squares in it. it gave me a big fright.

please change your balcony railings into vertical bars. something that will be safe for small children. square metal rails is just too dangerous. thanks. you can contact me if you like to ask more about this experience.

Room Tip: ocean view room
