I have stayed here a couple of times now for work and every time I've stayed I have eaten in the restaurant and the food has been amazing and good value for money. This time I had pasta and I could barely finish it. The rooms are a good size, I think the air conditioner is older than me but...

We stopped overnight at Rydges Gladstone on a recent road trip through the area. On arrival, we were greeted by Clive, the Manager, with a warm and friendly greeting. We had a room overlooking the pool and distant ocean views. The room itself has had a facelift and the amenities were in good condition. The room was clean and comfortable...

Stayed at Rydges for a night recently and found it to be conveniently located. Room was dated but comfortable. Air Conditioner was really old and not very effective. Bed was comfortable but furniture in the room was old and dirty. Carpet in the room and rest of the hotel was smelly, old and stained. The hotel needs updating urgently! Reception...

I will be staying here again.The room was very clean and you had access to facilities in the Rydges hotel which is opposite the apartments. The location is right in the city with walking distance to pubs, shops, banks and nail...

OK. good and bad. The bathroom is very old and tired, desperately needs an upgrade. Old air dryer mounted in the wall was broken, easy to fix and replace. Noisy old air con. Food is very average. The wifi is so bad it won't download a 30 second clip. I won't stay here again.

The apartment was in a great location in the middle of town and walking distance to all the restaurants and new water feature on the wharf. The room was clean, tidy, very comfortable and quiet. The staff were excellent and made us feel at home.

I had read the very mixed reviews on this property and decided to give it a try. Unfortunately the property has commenced a long overdue refurbishment and is half shut down. The restaurant only trades Monday to Friday and there is no breakfast buffet, you can order breakfast at a discounted rate but l would not bother again until it's...

Stayed at the hotel, only for 1 night and I was disappointed to say the least. The air conditioning unit was not working at the hotel, I was advised it was going to be out all week. When I arrived, I wasn't informed of the problem until my credit card payment had been processed. The fridge hadn't been cleaned for...

On arrival offered an upgrade, which I declined. The accommodation is near perfect, the service exceptional, all round. Reception, two very helpful and very knowledgeable young ladies. Superb breakfast, which was usually so large I couldn't do it justice. The cheerful room servicing people are happy to spare a moment and offer information to leisure activities. I enjoy fishing, it...
