Great location, easy access to Southbank, City, West End. Hotel restaurants great too. Was at a seminar so didn’t have opportunity to experience pool or gym but the rest was great. Recommend for family or business. Easy access to convention centre.

Great hotel close to theatre

Rydges has beautiful rooms and facilities right near the theatre and southbank. Late checkout is great too but we found the cleaning in the room next door was really noisy in the morning.
