New Years Eve. Restaurant has only 2 staff on one in the kitchen and one on the floor. The girl on the floor tells us that we have to wait 15 min because she is dealing with a table of 6 people. There is no one else in the restaurant. So we thought to go and have a drink from the bar. BAR closed till the 13th of January 2020, not for up dating , just closed. But we could get a drink from the Restaurant, from the one girl serving for can't deal with any more than 6 people. All this on New Years Eve. Well done. We left the hotel to find another place to eat.

Dear Guest, We are so sorry to hear about your experience in the restaurant on New Years Eve. We do understand that this is not the normal standard that we uphold at Rydges and due to unforeseen circumstances we may have been understaffed. Your comments will be passed on to the appropriate management for their consideration. Once again, many apologies and we hope we can welcome you back in the future and change your perception of the hotel for the better.
