Hotel is a bit 'old' but is clean and well presented. Hotel bar is Cody and a good breakfast is provided- depending on what package you get. Hotel is a bit out of the centre but a $10ish cab ride away. There is an great interesting area for coffee, meals etc about a 10 minute walk away. Would also be...

Pleasant and spacious surroundings with plenty of parking space. Large rooms with a kitchenette and separate sleeping area. Old warned out furnishing and bathroom (not refurbished since the from the 70’s ?) but clean. Wonderfully comfortable beds. The hotel is at about 2 km from the city center but it is not an issue if you have a car. Good...

Stayed here for a night - and was glad to leave. The whole room was really 'tired' and needs a great refresh - but my main gripe was the mold on the shower ceiling. It felt like a place that I wouldn't want to return to.

When we drove in we thought we were in the wrong place. Is this s Rydges? Really? Shouldn't be using the Rydges name. I felt duped. We are here for 1 night only and expected a little better. That said, our room is clean and quiet and there was a separation of sorts of our double bed from the kids...

This place in North Hobart is a little out of the way (20~25 minute walk to down town) but if you have a car that will be no issue. As multiple other reviews have mentions, the building is old and in need of a refurbishment, but it is clean, the water is hot and they have the most amazing beds....
