This was the perfect hotel for our trip. After all day trips and tours, it was wonderful to come back and relax in our comfortable room. The staff was amazing and took care of us beyond the call of duty. It may not be the most contemporary hotel, but it was clean, comfortable and a wonderful place to spend our...

We looked at reviews before booking and they were mixed but in saying that yes it is a older style place but for the money it was clean tidy and staff were pleasant. It was quite a quirky style room with old furniture and fittings and if that is what you like this is for you. Plenty of parking and...

The staff were friendly and helpful but the rooms weren't as clean as they could be and extremely out dated. Kids loved the pool, sparkling clean everyday and gardens well maintained. Definitely won't be returning. Even great staff can't compensate for poor guestrooms.

Dear Deb, R, I am sorry to hear that you had a nice time but our rooms which are soon to be renovated had deterred you to comeback. I hope we can change this as the new rooms are coming on well and we hope that you would reconsider. As the only hotel to have a outside pool and gardens...

As we were visiting family in Tasmania, my wife and I had the Christmas Day buffet at the hotel (although we were not staying). There was a staggered arrival time (avoiding bunching of arrivals) and that seemed to work well. Our table had a view out across the Oval and towards the city and the dining room had a very...

Dear RobinLeChaudLapin Firstly thank you for coming and enjoying the Christmas Day lunch. It was a wonderful family fun day and glad that the day went smoothly and as expected.

We have booked 3 nights in the Rydges north Hobart over NYE. On the website it shows photos of newly renovated rooms, we arrived to find we are staying in a room with very dated decor, a smell of damp and a bathroom with cracked tiles, dirt and mould in the grout. A bar fridge that leaks and an overall...

Dear Tim, I am unfortunately going to have to correct your here. No images of new hotel rooms or the like are on the website, this is 100% accurate.

We were lucky enough to get accommodation between Christmas and New Year in Hobart !! Rydges was as expected and priced accordingly!! While it is older and in need of some care it is still comfortable and has all you need. Very close to North Hobart restaurant area . Our room leaked a little through heavy rain but comfortably slept...

We had booked here hoping it would live upto its name. We were pit into the older rooms which may nit have seen any cleaning or renovation since 1914. The carpets were dirty, the bed was old and the linen were not fresh, the pillows were flat, the main bedroom was in a dingy dark room with a window that...
