Friendly staff, and efficiently run. The room was clean but very dated. There was no plug in the bathroom and no chair to sit on when working at the desk. The shower dial would not work properly nor maintain temperature. I was only there for one night so it was fine, had I been there longer it may have been an issue.

I did not like my bedroom - in basement, old furniture, old bathroom with dysfunctional shower, horrible old floor, broken toilet and not worth money paid for it. At the end they charged us $15 for the car park although it was not mention during booking.

The room was very 'tired' - carpet threadbare, hair dryer worked intermittently, shower difficult to operate, furniture knocked around, room size small. However, the foyer, the bar, the restaurant all looked refurbished, service was excellent, (loved the music in the lift), buffet breakfast amazing as was the view from the bar, restaurant and room.

The rooms are average. The blanket on the bed is full of stains and so are the carpets. The shower pressure is extremely hard, making for an unpleasnt shower experience. The buffet breakfast was also pretty average - the only reason we ate there is because we were given free breakfast the first mornkng as there was a party up in the restaurant area right next to our room until midnight, on the night we arrived! The location of the hotel is great but it really is only an average hotel.

We stayed in a stranded room, on lower level ‘basement’ The room was extremely dated, bathroom was terrible, tiles missing, no power point in the bathroom. Very noisy. Check in was 2.00 pm didn’t get into our room til after 3.00pm. Location was great, with beautiful views. However considering it’s the Rydges they need to do major bedroom upgrades.
