We booked last minute and received a great rate with a one bedroom apartment boasting fabulous harbour views. The staff were friendly and helpful and, even though the place could do with an update, it feels homey and comfortable. We will be back in July!

We stayed at Rydges recently for work and were welcomed to the hotel in a professional and friendly way. The room was very nice and I enjoyed the comfortable lounge chair and the mounted LCD television which was a touch of luxury. The shower is over the bath which isn't ideal but was functional and the bathroom showed signs of... More

We partly chose this hotel as we thought Rydges is usually a safe choice. We were disappointed at how run down and in need of maintenance the room was. There were patches of paint missing all over, cracked tiles in the bathroom and some kind of serious water leak near the kitchenette resulting in a very soggy patch of carpet.... More

Unfortunately Tripadvisor only lets you upload ten pictures with a review. This was my fourth or fifth stay for business travel at this hell hole. Where shall I start? Housekeeping lacks serious attention to cleaning. One of my pictures shows a hair on the bathroom tiles (one of the many) that was present for the entire two+ weeks of my... More

I have stayed in this hotel for a week at a time so let me start by saying that the hotel was always clean, tidy and well presented even if it is a little dated (can't stand shower curtain. They are cruel creatures with a mind of their own that attack you when you least expect it). I found the... More

I stayed in a one bedroom parkview suite for one night on the easter long weekend & must say this is the place to be. It's like a home away from home. The room had everything that I could ask for including the kitchen sink so to speak. I'd planned on going out into the city for a night on... More

Generally my experience was very good, friendly staff (apart from one front desk on check out). General fit-out is needing some upgrade as is a little dated. Be wary however of ordering room service. I had a pizza that was at best a supermarket pizza that cost $21. When I queried the total cost, there was a $4 tray charge... More

Stayed in twin room 1013 for a work conference. Upon late arrival we were told that we could still order pizzas from the room service menu. After trying on 4 occasions to call “reception” and ‘room service” there was no answer. We had to call out on the landline to the main phone number (which we were charged for) and... More

We were booked by others into this hotel but found it perfectly adequate for the two nights were were there. Our tenth-floor room was quiet with a view of the harbour (though you cannot see the opera house or harbour bridge from here). The room and ensuite bathroom were clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel offers... More

Over the past 2 years we have been staying at Rydges North Sydney every few weeks. The location and views are superb. Plenty of parks close by and Historical North Sydney only 100 metres away. The views down the Harbour are among the best in Sydney. The accommodation, is not new but it is always clean and well prepared. The... More
