“Rydges Hotel”

4 star

The rooms are good and clean. Hotel staff very helpful. Only adverse comment is the Breakfast buffet is understaffed especially on a weekend but the food is very good. Otherwise excellent.

“Poor room”

2 star

I booked a queen spa bath room which looked beautiful on the website and really modern. The night before I received a phone call from the hotel asking if they could upgrade me to a superior room complimentary of course so I said yes, well I was extremely disappointed I got a room on the very top floor and the room was so dated and no bath, I was very disappointed as this stay was a birthday gift for someone. I would not pay that kind of money to stay there again

“What a great night”

Hi guys, I recently stayed at Rydges Hotel for my mate Mark D's wedding and I enjoyed it a lot I particularly love the City and I waste no time staying over a night whenever I can so this not the exception. I just want to thank you for the friendly service and the great location and a great night we all shared last Friday so I'll be definitely coming back whenever I get a chance. So thank you again. God bless and take care.

“Great staff, noisy room”

3 star

Stayed for 3 nights here - which is a great location, staff were lovely and friendly, but our room was quite noisy - we were situated two doors down from the lift, but could still hear it, and heard our neighbours whenever they spoke, coughed or used the bathroom. Could also hear night life happening in the streets. Didn't really think the price we paid was quite worth it, as we've stayed other places in the city for less and had a room twice the size including a kitchen etc. But if you want to be close to all the theaters and don't mind a bit of noise, this place is good :)
