Stayed there for one night on the way to the ski holiday.What an unexpected surprise. Hotel is located at the approximate walking distance to all "must visiting places". The hotel itself was very clean and welcoming. The room we had was big and had everything we needed. The staff was very friendly and responsive to our needs. Would recommend this...

We recently traveled as a family of 5 staying in 2 rooms. Both rooms were hit and miss. The Queen room was adequate however like previous reviewers I thought the bathroom was in dire need of a decent clean. Far too much mould everywhere. The Triple room was much cleaner. Considering the price we paid I did expect better. On...

Ok let me see, we stayed for an extended weekend family getaway. Firstly, the good points were the staff on reception and the location. The bad points were everything else with the worst part being the restaurant. The bathrooms in the rooms had broken tiles and we're very shabby, the AC in the room was either stiflingly hot or not...

We have stay at this property on and off for many years for: Business, Family get togethers, Celebrations. While we enjoy the locale, the rooms have not been refreshed for many years, and the ambiance that it once had is fading.

Travelling late at night we decided to get a room rather than push on. I phoned Rydges Capital Hill and spoke with Alex who was very pleasant. She informed me there were plenty of rooms available, and offered a reasonable rate including breakfast and parking. As I'm a Rydges black member I inquired if there was anything they could do...

We went to Canberra for the weekend for a conference and stayed at Rydges Capital Hill.

Unable to get fresh air into the room and even though it was winter the room was so stuffy it made it hard to sleep. The room opened to the central courtyard so you could not leave the sliding door open due to security and the early morning music from the restaurant made it impossible to do so anyway. So...
