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

Probably won't go back unless I can be guaranteed a quiet room.

While the room was spacious and clean , it was very noisy. A mechanical sound prevented me from sleeping

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.

A great place to stay in Canberra with easy walking to a good variety of dining options

I had an enjoyable stay. I would recommend reviewing the type of televisions you use. I don't use the TV very much other than for some company in the morning. I was difficult and time consuming to find a free ... more

The worst Rydges Hotel

Staff at check in and checkout is the only good part of the stay. Restaurant staff are friendly but the restaurant itself its a nightmare. Started of with wine glasses full of finger mark stains. Food are not hot at ... more
