Overnight business stay, the hotel is quite old and dated, the bed was comfortable enough and the room standard. The bathroom was very dated and the water pressure was dismal, one of the worst showers in any hotel I have stayed in. Next time I'll find another hotel near by or book in Sydney itself.

Stayed in the 1 bedroom suite and was very disappointed. They were fully booked that night and obviously had to use rooms that were in the process of being updated. Doors being painted, leak stained walls, broken bathroom tiles. Completely unacceptable for the $450+ price tag. Don't waste your money.

Stayed at Rydges, North Sydney when in Sydney for work. First time traveler to Australia. Check In: straightforward check in. No concierge, but guy at front desk was helpful in finding us an AFL game to attend. Room: Clean and good size, space enough in closets/drawers for 2 weeks of clothes. TV is just standard channels- no movies or anything.... More

We stayed here overnight. The hotel was clean and comfortable but in definite need of a renovation. The bathroom looks like it's from the 80s. I didn't receive any discounts on food or special services even though I'm a priority Guest member. We went to a concert at Luna park which was only a short walk away and planned on... More

There was plenty of room for a family of five in our two bed apartment, close to plenty of coffee shops and a short drive to the Rocks markets and Luna Park....but walk-able for the enthusiasts. Food at night could do better for younger families.

Hotel was in a good location for my Business activities, however my room was not serviced over my 2 day stay, and staff failed to provide a suitable explanation why, but offered a complimentary breakfast. The complimentary breakfast in the restaurant was an experience, firstly staff ask for your room number, and then make you fill in a form, instead... More

Often stay in the city for business & this time to try Rydges. As a Priority Rewards Member I really appreciated the attention to detail, and the genuine interest in my comfort. Will stay here again without hesitation & certainly will recommend to colleagues.

Everything was fine, staff. courteous. My work paid for the accommodation. The hotel was a quick walk down to the Pacific Highway. I am filling up this text box cos it asked for a minumum of 200 charachters, which seems silly

Whilst the options in North Sydney are limited and The Rydges is basically the best option, it doesn't excuse it from the fact that modernisation is needed. The rooms are comfortable enough but the bathrooms are in dire need of improvement, from the peeling paint to the growing mould and 90s era shower curtain - not a great place to... More

I have stayed there quite a few times for work, and its average for the price that it charges for the room. The rooms and bathrooms are a bit dated and clearly need renovation. The staff is very friendly and professional.
