Stayed with a friend this evening. Receptionist was a bit stand offish. Not very friendly. Rooms are outdated, paint peeling off round doorways and bathroom not very clean. However, we were delighted with our breakfast the next morning and the variety it offered, so well done there! I think it's time for a renovation Rydges.

Checked in and went my room. Great view of Sydney Harbour but that was the best bit. The room was old and shabby. The aircon didn't work and was informed that there were no other rooms. I can understand that. I was forced to use an old fashioned water cooler and was told I could move the next day. A...

I always stay here whilst travelling to Sydney for work. Like always the service was fantastic and my room clean and stylish. I had breakfast this time and felt for a 4 star hotel good value. Rydges is in a good location and close to everything North Sydney has to offer. It's not too far (via train or cab) to...

This hotel was conveniently located for an overnight business trip. The driveway isn't obvious from the road, and with its lush garden and flaming torches it felt a bit like a Survivor set... Checkin was straightforward, and the room quite decent, clean and well-appointed; according to signage, rooms had been recently refurbished. The bed was comfortable, and all other room...

Free Wi-Fi?! Finally, a hotel that offers fast Wi-Fi for free..! Many, many hotels charge exorbitantly for Wi-Fi, and it's a wonder they don't charge for hot water as well. Rydges North Sydney now sets the example for 21st century hotelling. My wife, myself and our 7-month-old son enjoyed our stay as well. The staff were courteous and professional and...

I stayed last night as I was in Sydney for a wedding. I thought the rooms were clean. The bed was awesome. The only down side was the price for breakfast. 28 dollars for a bacon eggs and a few other bits and pieces is extortion. I would stay again but not eat there.
