Convenient location, comfortable bed but motel is very run down and needs renovation, but I suppose that’s why it was cheap, we thought with the name Ridges it would be at least 4 star but lucky to be 3 star.

The place feels tired and poorly maintained. The corridors, carpets and walls are gross. Room was musty, but the bed sheets seemed to be clean.

Thank you for taking time to provide feedback. Our hotel is undertaking a refurbishment this year which will include painting, new carpet, walk in bathrooms in all guest rooms & furnishings.

Clean sheets, comfy big beds, quiet, friendly staff. Overall the property could do with some maintenance (worn but not affecting use) but pool looked good (we didn’t get chance to use) and we got exactly what we needed - a good nights sleep!

Didn’t like the current state of the property needs updating. The shower has a small leak, one of the lifts got stuck open and just the overall aesthetic of the property is tired. The 2 great items were a really comfortable bed and lovely restaurant.

The property is old and dated. Carpet is stained and in need of replacement. Elevators were very slow and sometimes you had to take the fire escape to get down from your floor to the ground. The staff at reception were very helpful and polite. Room cleaners never cleaned our room between nights. Overall if you aren’t wanting to spend much on accommodation and don’t care about using a fire escape to get up and down to your room then it’s a good option.
