Helpful and friendly staff

I really enjoyed my stay at Rydges Latimer, the portacot provided was really good and it's really nice you have included a breathable baby blanket. The staff were really helpful, I would def consider staying there again.

Great southern home away from home

My second stay in Rydges Latimer, and not disappointed. Comfortable, well-appointed room more than complemented by a superbly cooked steak at Bloody Mary's. Definitely recommended - I'll be back.
