The furniture did look old and in need of upgrading.The lift is very slow and parking is...

Stayed for week for work at Rydges. Had read some average reviews on TripAdvisor and from previous guests, but all in all I had a pleasant stay. The beds are super comfortable, and the rooms clean. Bathrooms are dated and need of an update in the very near future. Views were also great although noisy with the door open. Common...

Rooms were comfortable, bed was amazing wish I could afford to buy one like that. Lemongrass soap was so nice I took the other one home. Bulb missing from one side of the bed otherwise all good. Great that we could leave our car in the car park for a bit longer. Thanks for that.

One night stay to attend a show. Our aircon did not work, however the staff were quick to remedy the situation. The mobile aircon was not suitable therefore a quick room change was appreciated. The whole place could do with a little spruce up, but the staff were very friendly and efficient. Good location for our needs. Would definitely stay...

I love this hotel & the service offered by staff. I have accidentally left items behind on trips on several occasions and always ring to see if items have been found. I know they were left in the room because I put bags in car and drove directly home. Items are never handed in. Disappointing that this one arm of...

The bar was great and the staff very friendly. The hotel is very pretty when you drive in. The room was OK for the price, but the place is getting pretty run down. Our teacups were dirty and the minibar not cold enough. The bathroom was quite dodgy, the toilet broke during our stay and rather than be upgraded with...
