I opted for an upgrade to a suite which cost an extra $100 a night, which was worth it because the room had a kitchenette and a view to the harbour from the balcony and room. We requested the sofa bed be made up, which wasn't, but was soon fixed with a call to reception. The room was pristine even... More

Stayed here midweek for a work conference. The hotel isnt too far to walk from the centre of Nth Sydney and the rooms are relatively quiet when inside. The beds are comfortable but the bathrooms are very dated. The restaurant is not worth eating at there are much better places to eat in Nth Sydney

On entry, we noticed that the room was quite dusty as if it had not been used for some time, and the cleaners didn't bother freshening it up before it was let out again. There was no remote for the telly so I had to get one sent up. There was also no hotel information at all which is usually... More

We chose the Rydges because of convenience. The conference that we were attending was in the building. We arrived on a Sunday just after midday after an interstate flight. We had a fair amount of baggage between us, and I was shocked that there was no one to help with our luggage. The taxi driver got a trolley for us... More

We booked this for visitors to Sydney. They opted to leave after their first night. We were very embarrassed to have booked this hotel without seeing a room first. When we collected them we found the room to be rather unpleasant, dated & in need of complete renovation.

Overnight business stay, the hotel is quite old and dated, the bed was comfortable enough and the room standard. The bathroom was very dated and the water pressure was dismal, one of the worst showers in any hotel I have stayed in. Next time I'll find another hotel near by or book in Sydney itself.

Stayed in the 1 bedroom suite and was very disappointed. They were fully booked that night and obviously had to use rooms that were in the process of being updated. Doors being painted, leak stained walls, broken bathroom tiles. Completely unacceptable for the $450+ price tag. Don't waste your money.
