"If you are looking for a place to have your wedding in Cairns look no further then Rydges Esplanade Resort! The facilities were absolutely amazing and their co-ordinator Fiona went above and beyond for us in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself! Glenn and his staff were nothing short of amazing in serving and managing our reception! The food was delicious and we had all of our guests come back and say how lovely the food was and how great Rydges and their Staff were! At such a decent price too why would you look any further? Thank you so much to Fiona, Glenn and the wonderful team at Rydges! We appreciate all that you did for us and will be highly recommending the hotel! The restaurant food was delicious and the rooms were gorgeous and the views breathtaking! Thanks a lot"
