We stayed here for just one night but I wanted to stay longer! Our room overlooked the river, and was so quiet. Our room was spacious and must have been recently refurbished, everything was brand new and clean. Beds very comfy, beautiful pool area, free wifi, we will definitely stay here again.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and the facilities. I agree the Rydges Dream Beds are great and so comfortable.

Even though Sails is undergoing renovations, this hotel is beautiful. We stayed in a king room facing the river and the pool. On that side of the hotel you would never know about the demolition going on on the other side. The room was large and the bed and pillows would have to be the most comfortable I have slept...

Very nice room opening to pool with the river behind. There is a lot of work going on at the moment, new reception, function centre and restaurant so restaurant facilities are limited at the moment but what we had (breakfast) was good. The rooms have all been upgraded and are very nice. Bed was one of the best we have...

I loved this place! The staff are super helpful! There is a renovation going on, but still worth staying. Mattress was like sleeping on a cloud! Room was very quiet, shower and all extremely clean. I will be back, for a family holiday!

Luxury.The beds are out of this world. The rooms drip luxury from well stocked bar fridge to multi media players attached to the tv. Unfortunately the restaurant and reception are now closed for the rest of the rennovations. So had to eat out.

We were extremely disappointed with our stay at this hotel recently. It was impossible to find a parking spot.The hotel is doing major renovations so it looks like you are staying in a construction zone. The air-conditioner didn't work properly and the staff were inefficient and very unhelpful. I would not recommend this hotel!!
