Good location , but could do with room freshen up

Good location , but could do with room freshen up. Rust stains down the wall from the shower, the glass roller doors make way too much noise.

A very disoppointing Rydges not up to scratch, in need of revamp and safety check, a tired place.

The reception was great as were the staff. I was very disappointed when I entered my room which aside from the beds needed a complete revamp. The power switch was not attached to the wall and the panel holding all ... more

Staff were friendly and helpful. The two rooms we stayed in needed an update. In particular the bathroom. A disappointing view from the balcony. We had a broken air conditioning dial and ironing board.

Just needed somewhere to sleep really, okay, but a bit shabby looking interior for location/expectation of Rydges

Handy location for central Cairns. Room was okay, nothing amazing. Interior of hotel - hallways etc are pretty shabby for what I would expect of a Rydges hotel (and for the price paid).
