Good front desk service and Restaurant. Great location. Undercover parking
The television was an outdated analogue set with poor reception. The coffee cups are tiny there were no mugs. The cleaners trolley sat in the same place in the hallway outside the room for over two hours
The location of the hotel was good, with a variety of places to eat and drink nearby. The free parking was secured at night, which was great.
The room was outdated - think tragic 1970's tropical look - and the lift smelled like a nursing home cleaning liquid had been used aplenty. Then there's the fridge - old, battered and need of defrosting (I have no idea what the house-keeping/management are doing).And then we got hammered for a credit card surcharge just to top it all off. Not a good experience - which sadly seems to be par for the course for Rydges hotels...
I stayed at one in Sydney and it was disgusting then thought I would give it another chance and my partner and I both agreed that we would not stay at another rydges again due to the fact that looks like it had the same things in the room for 50 years not very clean. building nice on the outside but not on the inside. one of the lifts smelt like rotten eggs. I think you should lood at redecorating and puttin new bed spreads on the beds. not relaxing at all
Location is good for shopping, restaurants,marina. Due to wife's illness & return home advised by dr. staff were most polite & anxious to help in any way possible.
Hotel is tired - in definite need of total renovation.Will not recommend until renovations are completed
Close proximity to restaurants
Rooms old and facilities old eg television etc
Needs and refurb
Access to venues.
Although our room was serviced on Saturday morning the sugar and milk were not replaced.
very good value for money
The room was not so much unclean as tatty the bottom of the door was all split and the hand basin chipped or marked ....very basic shower with curtain not the sort of thing I expected from Rydges.
