Hi Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are sorry to hear you did not like the view from your balcony room. The hotel is situated within the CBD which at times can mean limited views. Kind regards, The Rydges World Square Team

Staff were lovely. Great location and facilities. Maybe a little extra care cleaning as I found someones eye drops in the corner of the room, but besides that the room was fine.
