Having stayed a few times, I thought I should finally post a review on the hotel. From the minute you check in, the staff are greeting you with a smile. Janette is always happy to answer any questions you may have. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you need. The bathrooms are a little dated however have everything...

Had a great stay. Very clean rooms and excellent view. Kids liked the pool. We stayed on Thursday so the hotel had kids eat free for dinner which was very nice. Not sure when will next visit Gladstone but will return to the hotel. Call direct they give great member rates.

When you travel for business, if the room is clean, neat, tidy and everything works it is a great start. The air con is cold and the staff are helpful and friendly. It is an enjoyable stay, but at the end of the day if it is clean and these are very clean that is great

I have stayed at a few Rydges hotels and they are very mixed in quality. The room was okay but to get the aircon working I had to turn it off, take out the room key and then turn everything back on. There were old bottlecaps under the curtains near the window showing that the room hadn't really been thoroughly...

I stayed here over the Xmas - new yr break. The hotel is ok, a little bit of a throw back to the 1980s but the rooms have been semi refurbished and are ok. The issue was the hotel was almost empty and partially closed, signs and communications everywhere that there is no bar, restaurant, room service or even housekeeping...
