Having stayed at a number of different Rydges properties in the last 12 months it was reassuring to know that at the very least I would get a clean room and welcoming staff. Rydges North Sydney certainly met that expectation but with just a few small changes it could so easily move from good to great. The hotel is conveniently... More

Conveniently located, if you need to conduct business in North Sydney. Rooms are small and functional, adequate cupboard space and just enough hangers for 5 days of business clothes.Both sides of the Hotel have good views. Breakfast is OK, the normal buffet fair, I did think this trip around, that there seemed to be less on offer than last time,... More

I have been staying here on and off for the past 2 years for work. They location is great. The train station is close. Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. The restaurant/ room service is way overpriced. The rooms are clean and comfortable. All the bathrooms are in need of a revamp, but other than that this hotel is great... More

Receptionist told me to "show that email to get discounts". Elevator was out of action, however was t explained until another guest told us. Beds... More

There are few hotel options suited to the business traveller in North Sydney. This hotel is one of them. It's the second time I've stayed here and this time I found it somewhat better than the first. It's a quiet hotel, the beds are comfortable, the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful, and the air conditioning in the rooms is... More

I recently spent 1 night at this hotel on business. Location is great with a number of restaurants in walking distance. I arrived after dark. Firstly entrance was poorly lit. After checking in I went to park in the car park. No lighting whatsoever at the entrance so I couldn't even see what I was meant to be doing when... More

This place never fails to please for the weary traveller. Most comfortable bed with fabulous pillows. Great night's sleep guaranteed. In addition, I was pleasantly surprised with the food - well priced and a great menu range. Definately place of choice.

I guess I was expecting a lot more from this visit. The Cons: Firstly it's $25 a night to park your car which I thought was a bit rich. Despite there being ample free parking on weekends only meters from the hotel (the receptionist didn't point this out, I discovered this myself when exiting the carpark). Secondly, there was an...
