The hotel staff were very good. They treated our young children kindly, even adjusting dessert menus to please them. The cleaning staff would turn their equipment off and move to the edge of a walkway if we past, like royalty! The reception were always helpful, adjusting our booking details to allow an extra Questacon visiting day. The restaurant was fantastic...

A good hotel, centrally situated for the attractions of Canberra. The rooms are a little dated now, but are large, air-conditioned and spotless, with two double beds. The breakfast is buffet, chose and serve yourself, very good. I have always been shy of bar food in hotels, but the bar food here is five star! I had the 'Burger', this...

This hotels house keeping must be highly untrained in hygiene or are simply lazy. The room I booked stunk of vomit, so I demanded to have my room changed and the bathroom was grubby with the corners of the toilet seat lid dark and dirty an clearly not cleaned and soap scum and mold around the entire shower and spa....

We booked one night as we were going to see a show but with the secret Sunday deal ended up staying two nights. Check in was so easy and I was very pleased when I was offered the upgrade I had paid for for free as well as the secure parking. The room, exec king, was comfortable but I would...

The hotel is getting older and needs some renovations (a bit of paint etc). That said, our stay was very comfortable, the check in procedure was easy, we stayed in a spa suit, which was huge, the spa was great. I found the bed and pillows to be excellent. The room service was efficient though it was nothing to write...

I really enjoyed the convenience of online 'check-in'. They messaged me to give my room number and advise that my room was ready. There was secure car parking and the area it was located was good for work, with ease to site seeing and a beautiful part of Canberra. The staff were friendly and even brought extra blankets without asking....

We recently stayed in the Rydges hotel in Canberra and were most dissatisfied. Our room was described a a Superior Queen room but was anything but. The bathroom was very dated- dirty grouting, shower over bath and just a shower curtain. No towel racks, no toilet brush, the doorstop was situated butted up against the bath just where you step...

This hotel could be so much more than it is, with just a little work, I doubt that it'd even cost that much (relatively speaking!) to fix it up. I was traveling for work in this instance, and the hotel happened to be reasonably priced and in a location that was pretty much unbeatable for work purposes. Note that it's...

Needs an update, especially in the bathrooms. Wonderful beds and bedding. Good block out curtains. Our room wasn't very large. No comfy seating in it. Restaurant couldn't accommodate us as weddings and parties were on.
