Check in to check out was easy with pleasant staff. Room was spacious with 3 single beds. Really like you can open a window for air. Bathroom was roomy with a great shower. Decent coffee in the room would be nice.

Nice and spacious but the decor could be a bit updated. The drinks at the bar would have been the most expensive I have ever paid anywhere. Location was great as the shops and eateries were all in walking distance.

Awesome location, great, clean rooms and facilities. Bloody Mary’s has a fantastic menu. Booked a suite as this was a family trip, and was more than comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. Will definitely stay there again.

Loved our 2nd stay, the Rydges made our special evening even more fantastic. Anniversary night and not only got an unexpected upgrade but a lovely bottle wine 🍷 was truly appreciated and expected. Room was beautiful, front of house staff amazing 😉 definitely will always be our place to stay. Parking 10/10 Thank you 🙏
