Nice rooms with great ocean views.

Negative Reviews

Unhelpful reception staff.

Several guests reported being frustrated by the hotel's unhelpful reception staff which appears to be unmotivated and seems to go through the motions with no real enthusiasm. Some guests even though of the staff as supercilious.

Faulty fire alarm.

One of the hotel's fire alarms goes off on false triggers quite frequently which can be distressing to guests especially during nights.

Outdated décor.

Although many guests love the rooms at Rydges Tradewinds Cairns, several have pointed to the outdated décor as detracting from an otherwise pleasant experience.
