Rydges have done a good job of upgrading this hotel. I’d definitely stay here again. The staff were really friendly and welcoming, except for the guy working in the bar who had no idea what he was doing.

Thank beejayge

Everything you would expect to have at a top-end hotel in the centre of the city. Beautiful comfy beds, perfectly clean bathrooms & friendly staff. The receptionists were very helpful with looking after my luggage for the day as I was catching a late flight....More

Was in a recently refurbished room which was nice however went to bar during happy hour and was charged $14 for a Heineken. Seems very steep ! No TV remote in room however staff rectified this quickly. Staff friendly and efficient.

Hi Thank you for your recent feedback on Tripadvisor. If you could please advise what time you went to the bar I am happy to refund you the difference. $14 is certainly not the Happy Hour rate. Apologies for the inconvenience Regards Jeff

The Hotel itself was a bit old and shabby but the buffet breakfast the next day was my highlight. $15. There is also no carpark but if you pay $15 you can park behind building. The bed was comfortable. Overall average stay.
