Rydges Plaza Cairns

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very friendly staff. Close to shopping and restaurants

Hotel location is good. Some of the staff not polite and rude.

Was only there overnight, so didn't have a chance to check out the hotel offerings. Accommodations were pleasant, although the bathroom was a bit dated and felt a little cheap. Only real problem was the noise from the Gilligan's backpacker's hostel across the street kept their noise up until real late.

Our 2 night stay was planned only at very last minute. Location of hotel was great but in general felt that the hotel is due for refurbishment if it is to retain it's 4 star rating. We felt we got value for the money we spent

Comfy room for a quick stay. Convenient location and easy walk to restaurants and beach. GREAT live music at LiLo. Ants in the room - they say it's "normal." Free WiFi in room. Good value stay, not luxurious.

in the city and near the sea. good location. not very high price.

When we got to the hotel, the room we were given was very dirty and old. We asked for a room change and were obliged for a room change the next day.
