Always love staying at Rydges : lovely room, beds, but only little milk & no biscuits this time; nice with tea or coffee after long trip. Would also be nice to have hot milk with coffee machine.

Great service, average room, overpriced and mediocre food.

Friendly, Helpful and checked in without fuss.

On arrival The staff at reception were friendly and very helpful. On arrival at my room outside the door there was the remains of the previous guest's room service which, I presume, hadn't been collected. This was a little disconcerting. ... more

Very happy, you couldnt have done more.

Online booking was a breeze, early check in wasnt a problem (12.15pm), room was ready, nice, clean, comfortable. Couldnt really find anything on the menu at the sports bar so I ate out. Checkout was easy.
