Wonderful. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Hotel is clean and modern and the interior design is lovely; themed agricultural per the neighboring RNA show grounds - which can be strolled around - the kids enjoyed seeing horses used by Royals Equestrian Centre in their stables. We enjoyed delicious food from the Rydges restaurant and could work it off in the outdoor heated pool or the gym... ;-) Have loved staying here in previous years during EKKA and the development of the King Street area has made it a terrific destination.
A regular guest at this hotel, this was the first time we used the connecting rooms for our children. The kids loved everything about staying, including the pool and comfy the needs are.
These rooms are great value. Connecting rooms are 1 x King bed and 2 x single beds in the other room. Double connecting door in the joining wall meant you couldn’t hear anything from the other room.
Will definitely use this option again for future stays
I’ve been coming here for 3 years now, so I thought it’s about time for a review. Always clean, comfortable, good gym and pool, plenty of eating options close, reasonably priced. Brandon on the front desk always provides friendly and professional service
Have stayed here twice now. Not all rooms are the same standard. The corner rooms maybe are better. They have a window in the bathroom. The bathroom is bigger. The bed is huge and very comfortable. It is all very clean. Our room leaked from a huge storm. The staff promptly changed the room. I like the decor for a chain hotel. It is in a great location. The pool is handy for some exercise. It is clean. Good value hotel. Our room was on the to floor. This area gets noisy at weekends. So if you want a quiet room book a top floor one, or at the back of the hotel.
This Rydges is located just outside the CBD and main shopping mall, probably too far to walk into the city centre but we always have a car so it is a short drive to the city. The location also has advantages though in that it is quieter than being right in the middle of the city square.
Rooms here are lovely, the Rydges Dream Beds are simply amazing, never had a better nights sleep anywhere! Bathrooms are well appointed, large TV on the wall, small bar fridge, air cond. Level 2 has a lap pool which the kids love, and a gym has treadmills, exercise bikes, mats, water, towels, a TV etc.
Car parking is attached to the hotel and undercover. King St has really blossomed and new restaurants are now open right next door including Mexican, Italian, Japanese, and more. A great place to stay.
