Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns 4 stars

Hotel in Cairns

Overlooking the Coral Sea, Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns offers rooms with a private balcony and city, mountain or ocean views. Great location just up the end of the esplanade and only a short walk to the main restaurant strip and attractions. Good little bar downstairs. Lovely pool area. Didn’t get around to eating in the hotel restaurant but Muddys restaurant nearby was great for breakfast. Many other places in walking distance to eat at. Was travelling in a group of 8 and we all had rooms nearby which was convenient. We got a great price at less then a $100 bucks a night for a large spacious room.
