Spent 6 nights here and was very happy. Very clean, well stocked and comfy beds. Room service delivered by nearby Cafe so menu is very extensive and the hotel has its own restaurant open for a buffet breakfast - loved the hot chocolate. Can’t thank the wonderful Sam Lelekis

Rydges has a star in the name of Sam Lelekis. She was fabulous from day one and always goes the extra mile. She does her absolute best in a venue that is showing its age. The new chef was an absolute winner!! Food was really good. Great buffet breakfast in the morning

The welcome and help from staff at this hotel is good. My room left a lot to be desired. There was a mild smell of urine from one of the beds although the one I used was fine. It’s just that the fabric of the building and room is a bit tired. Location is close to

Check in staff made the simple act of arriving and going to our room a 45 minute ordeal. English perhaps a 3rd language, and they didn’t really care. Rooms old, air con rattly, 2/10 - at least they had a mini bar.

Dear Rhysmcclintock, Thank you for rating the hotel. We appreciate hearing form our guests so we know what we did well and what areas we need to work on. I understand that on arrival at the hotel to check in, that your reservation was made for the wrong date. As your reservation was via a 3rd party we had to follow the correct process to organise a date change as you had booked a non-refundable package. The team proceeded organise this for you so you were able to transfer your booking and payment to the correct stay dates. Thanks for sharing your experience. Regards, Michelle Davidson General Manager

how much is the buffet breakfast?
Breakfast was included in our room price and it was very good. Don't think it was expensive anyway.

"Corner room if you want a “lighter” room"
"If the room does not suit, ask to change room."
"Not sure where as in a side street"
"Pay a bit more for balcony/view although if you are not in room alot doesn't really matter"
"Floor five was nice and quiet; windows were quite small presumably to reduce heat effect."
