Nice hotel, staff & service - friendly and helpful. Lobby and the bars and restaurants, really nicely done. Rooms are large, but a tiny bit dated. Bed was extremely comfortable thought, with a nice array of different pillows for choice. On-site carparking is very convenient

Stayed mid November for family wedding in this glorious part of NSW and while the hotel is in a truly fantastic position right on the river with a short walk to the beaches, local restaurants and shops, it's tired. As a family we took the three bedroom, three bathroom Room 801 which is very spacious and offers lots of balconies...

Our family of five stayed for two nights at the end of October. We were initially booked into its sister hotel Sails, but cancelled that booking when we found out at the last moment the pool was out of order due to renovations. Glad we stayed here though. As it was such late notice we were only able to get...

Mount Isa, Australia

This hotel was nice, but nothing special. It was a bit dated and I was expecting more from a Rydges hotel, especially after paying what we did. The rooms need a little updating. The location was great and the staff were lovely.
