Great air conditioning, close to where we needed to be (RPA hospital). Our breakfast wasnt included in the price which we found a bit disappointing and we had to pay for parking which I think should be included in the overall cost.

Simple, nice and clean hotel. I do think the prices were bumped up because of the date we stayed and I don't agree with paying $400 for one simple, nothing fancy room ( & over kill smell of cleaning products upon entering) but I paid it and staff we re friendly and stopped the early morning parties promptly, thankfully. Overall, simple, clean.. nice staff. 3.5 out of 5.

Thank you for your feedback, Over the NYE period prices through out Sydney of accommodation are much higher than usual due to demand related to the fireworks and other celebrations. I am glad to see that overall you enjoyed your stay. We are currently undergoing renovations to be finished by September 2019 so that all of our rooms have a modern look. Hopefully we can accommodate you then!

I understand hotels are expensive around NYE but this was a joke!! For what we paid nothing was outstanding, bed that was said to be king size was lucky to be a double!, the 2 other “double” beds in the room were singles, bathroom was old and in need of update for a so called “4 1/2 star” place was not a comfortable stay. Also not that we would have used it the “fully stocked mini bar” all they had was tea, coffee and dirty coffee cups. I would give this place 1 star!

I'm genuinely surprised that Rydges keep their name oaths tired old hotel. You step out of the lift and the halls are dark and smell. The rooms are tired although large. This hotel is years overdue for a makeover...or a bulldozer
