This hotel is tired and, when we checked in, staff, whilst coldly efficient, gave the impression that they really didn't want to be there. We were in a king room where we had to walk through the conference tea area to reach the room as there was no lift closer for more direct access. The room itself was tired but... More

Stayed recently at this resort. Had a interconnecting room. Both rooms were spotlessly clean, plenty of space and all that a family could ask for. Indoor spa and pool are good size and not crowed even on weekends. The restaurant is a little limited in its selection but have special during the week. Snacks are available at the bar for... More

Having stayed at many Hotels in Canberra I would have to say Rydges Capital Hill is by far the most comfortable and quite reasonably priced. All the staff are courteous and professional and the rooms are kept immaculate. Most importantly though, their beds are second to none. To top all this off their food is fantastic too. I highly recommend... More

We've just stayed at this hotel and would come back here in a heartbeat. Clean, good food, great staff, parking, nothing was to much trouble. We really enjoyed it. Only one thing and that is if we could have a shaving/makeup mirror.... Really the only suggestion.
