Had a large too with 2 double beds, plenty of room and nice view over racecourse.
Bathroom was roomy and shower excellent pressure.
Buffet was ok, crockery not the cleanest. Staff very friendly and accommodating for children.
Pool was ok and spa lovely and warm, could do with a makeover.
Excellent location for Homebush.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled with family

A big improvement on the room's appearance and presentation. The carpets are no longer stained and ripped and the modernisation to the décor has helped for a brighter look. Outstanding views from the window and the winter afternoon sun was streaming through and nice and cosy.

Room Tip: views of the race course

Hi Jovan K,

Thank you for the positive review. We were lucky to have completed our hotel room refurbishment September last year. The feedback from our new rooms has been truly great. We are pleased that you enjoyed the changes as much as we do.

Kind regards,
The Rydges Parramatta Team

We recently booked and stay in two rooms while attending an event at Sydney Olympic Park.

Upon arrival, we were able to easily get into the outside carpark and find a vacant space. We checked in quickly and efficiently at the front desk, and were provided with two adjoining superior rooms.

When we went to the lifts, we discovered that one of the two lifts was broken, and a notice was cleary displayed on the broken lift advising that parts are being ordered.

This effectively made travel up/down the lifts a bit of a nightmare.

On one trip, we were greeted by people on a much lower floor who said that they had missed 2-3 lifts because they were so full and they couldn't fit in. Others were jumping in lifts going down, even though they wanted to go up, just to secure a ride.

The rooms were clean and had all you could want for an overnight stay. Well laid out and comfy, although we found our double bed to be a bit small and soft.

We did notice that the rooms weren't that great for outside noise from the corridor if people were being a little loud outside.

We went for a full breakfast in the morning. While the food was plentiful, some of it didn't really taste very nice. The cooked breakfast was very good, with a chef preparing eggs (however you liked them) fresh. The hot foods were replenished often, which was good too. At $29 per head, it was perhaps a little expensive considering the options. But as we were time limited and hungry, it was okay on this occasion.

Check out took a little longer waiting for a few people ahead of us. There didn't seem to be an express check-out option available (we had pre-paid).

Considering its location, it was a very handy and reasonably priced option for an event at Sydney Olympic Park events. We would stay again - hoping that the lifts are working.

Hi David,

Thank you for your feedback from your stay. We can confirm that our lift is back in service as of Saturday. It took a little bit longer than we liked to be rectified however this was unfortunately out of our control. We apologise if this was an inconvenience to you and appreciate your understanding. We will address your concerns regarding breakfast with our Executive Chef. We regularly receive positive comments about buffet breakfast. We are pleased to hear that you would stay here again.

Kind regards,
The Rydges Parramatta Team

As a frequent traveller I am constantly amazed by the quality of this hotel. The upgrade and renovation has really taken this hotel to another level. Fresh sophisticated and modern it's sure to inspire wether it's business or pleasure.

3 great places to eat to tickle your fancy. Stock restaurant to satisfy the everyday traveller. Steeds to indulge for the more delicate of tastes and the post for the casual meal at irresistible prices.

The staff will cater to any need and no request is too much. The place to call home when your away from home
