Rydges was a mixed bag for us this trip. Let's start with the good: 1. The staff member who checked us in was brilliant, some of the best customer service I have experienced. 2. The room was unexpectedly large and well fitted. 3. The vibe of the hotel was beyond expectations considering price point. That said, there was an issue we experienced that highlighted some significant cracks. The door frame to the bathroom was splattered with a dried reddish liquid (looked like blood or wine perhaps - see picture). These things can be missed, but potential bodily fluids are not our thing, so we asked for it to be cleaned while we were out in the afternoon. After returning home at 10pm, it was still there, and reception simply said it would be dealt with tomorrow. We asked again in the morning and showed the picture again, and it was promised to be addressed as we went out for the morning. Once again, it was missed, and we had to go to the front desk again to get someone in to clean it. Lots of effort and time from our end for an issue we viewed as a potential safety hazard (especially if it was blood). Overall, it was a great hotel with some issues with issue resolution and cleanliness. Would still say it represents good value for money, but be prepared for some rougher edges.

Good hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. AC was not working, and the room was so hot. Got it changed, and so there was no issue. Housekeeping needs some improvement. Can't comment on food as I didn't take it. Had a look at buffet breakfast, and it looked good. No direct public transport from railway station.

Rooms were as described. Staff were really fabulous. The catered food was very mixed (the pasta dishes were very bland, but other dishes on other days were quite good). It is a 10 minute walk to the nice restaurant strip. Close to parliament. Walkable to galleries. Nothing much nearby, but was convenient for me because i was utilising function facilities.

Staff were very friendly & helpful. The room looked spacious, very clean & pleasant. The environment of the hotel was nice. However, we found the hotel very noisy by people running around & talking at night & also it was a surprise that we had to pay for the carpark separately - $18 per night.

Pro's, location and friendly staff, spacious room. Con', number plates not recognized on entry so continuously had to buzz and wait, rooms weren't clean enough, very dusty and dirty glasses. Breakfast was chaos with food run out and no cutlery to be found at times - suggest more staff to be appointed for these mornings by management. Definitely will not stay here again for the price paid.
