This hotel is an older property that has had a facelift in the past but could do with a little tlc now. We booked an apartment so we could utilise the kitchenette but unfortunately the kitchenette only comprised of a microwave and a little crockery, which wasn't much use to us. However, the staff were more than helpful when we... More

Found a good deal with parking, breakfast, WiFi included so all considering good value for money. It was a fair hike up hill on hot day from station but bathroom quite OK for cool down. The staff were more than helpfull and we were allowed early check in which was a bonus, no fee. Yes, it's a bit tired, but... More

Stayed here for NYE, wasn't the best place I've ever stayed in. Our park view room was what looked like a weed infested school smoko area. Other then that the room was nice, the bathroom was a bit old but meh. Oh and FYI we tried to eat at the bar for lunch it took 3 attempts to get a... More

This hotel is in need of a wrecking ball. OLD but not old enough to have character. It and it's neighbour look like they're from the USSR!! Staff friendly and breakfast was ok. The hill is a STEEP one!!! Wouldn't stay there again - plenty of other choices!!!

The location of this place is excellent if you need to stay close to the city on this side of the bridge. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't really have a lot of other things going for it. The staff are nice but the building is very tired and the things that separate an average hotel from a good one - like... More

Decent hotel, good location but the hotel really need to some facelift. Looks like Rydges have not made any investments in doing some basic upgrades to the rooms. Bathroom / accessories looks really old. However no complaints on staff, cleanliness and service which was at an acceptable level.

We (two adults and one child) stayed overnight after a full day seeing the nearby Taronga Park Zoo. The hotel is a four-star and could probably do with a refurbishment. That said, our room was clean and spacious (we had a one-bedroom suite). We had lovely views over the harbour and there were lots of dining options close by. Staff... More

We had the Taronga Zoo package which had a family suite. Nothing fancy but does the job with one bedroom and a fold out in the lounge room, also a small balcony. The location is great and the staff were very helpful with any questions we had. I would recommend using the package if you are going to the zoo.

The room was very old and tired looking. The carpet was filthy and needed a good steam clean. I went to make a cup of tea any the kettle was grimy and looked liked it hadn't been cleaned in a while. The lift wasn't working to the garage so it made it difficult to cart things to and from our... More

Stayed for 4 nights over NYE. 10th Floor Room. Check-in was efficient. We got what sort of room we thought we would receive. Lovely views over the harbour and homes from the window. Room serviced daily, or you could opt for a 'Green Stay' where you put out a card on the door before 10am not to have your room... More
