Our family has stayed at Rydges North Sydney several times over the years as it is conveniently placed, being close to relatives and with easy access to the city and the airport. While not being a flashy hotel, it's price range is appropriate for what you get. Some parts of the two rooms we had showed poor quality repairs but... More

Last minute decision to stay here didn't disappoint. Yes the bathrooms are tired but the bed is very comfortable. Parking is cheaper than town. Service was good bar one lady who'd obviously had a big night out and forgot us 5 minutes after dealing with us. Fair value

We booked this hotel to watch the soccer game because It was a very easy walking distance to the North Sydney Oval. However, we found it's quite difficult to find bars or restaurants close by to eat after the business hour. When we last tried in the hotel restaurant - which was already cleaning up around 10pm - we ended... More

We have checked in today. Service at reception is good. The room is nice however the bathroom is awful and very dated! There are marks on the bottom of the bath tub. We are here from 11th to 16th Dec so let's see what else the hotel brings us 😳 Kind Regards Avi from Melbourne

I have been booked at this hotel on a couple of occasions now due to its proximity to my workplace. Each time I have been completely underwhelmed by this hotel. This is the first time I have been prompted to write a review. Rooms are terribly dated. Services are severely lacking. Lifts are incredibly slow. Access to car park is... More

Our room was nothing fancy and in need of a revamp, but reasonably comfortable for a one night stay (and we had some ocean glimpses from our room which was a bonus). The aircon is quite loud and the shower is the over the-bath type with a shower curtain (rather than being a stand alone shower) but water pressure is... More

While the North Sydney location is useful for the business I need to conduct it is lacking some facilities that I normally like in a hotel. There are no fitness facilities (no pool or gym), it it up a steep hill from any restaurants so you either dine in the in house restaurant or get room service. The room was... More

Overpriced, and only reasonable accomodation. Certainly not value for money. Restaurant was quite nice, but unable to adapt to a simple breakfast. It was continental or or full buffet,no a la carte. Probably would look elsewhere if we needed to stay in the area again.

We stayed here on an urgent family visit only as the only real alternative for accommodation in North Sydney was booked out. We needed to be near the RNSH, so eliminated other better options. This place is in need of a complete makeover and a good clean. Carpets are scruffy and stained as was the furniture. Refrigerator, sink and cupboards... More
