I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last few years and will continue to do so. The location is quiet, the staff are friendly and professional and it is just enough out of the city to be quiet and restful, yet convenient to the city and North Sydney. It is located only a ten minute walk to... More

I like the location, it's a ten minute walk from the station. I've stayed here before and it's reasonably quiet (quieter on the harbour side). The beds are comfortable and I like the place but it's starting to fall apart a bit. The bathroom was very outdated with a cracked basin, I tried to open the window, but it was... More

If you have to work in North Sydney you will quickly learn that quality accommodation is in very short supply. One of the few hotels to survive there is Rydges - but oh dear what a sad place it is. Décor and service seem to be stuck somewhere in the eighties - and it feels like that was the last... More

The rooms are quiet and the air con works well. The staff on the front desk are friendly and helpful. The bathroom is functional however the pipes are rusty and the tiles are cracked. The bed was super comfortable but the pillows had died some years ago and needed replacement. The free wifi was easy and quick. I'd certainly stay... More

After deciding to try a North Sydney Hotel instead of CBD due to location of clients, we booked into Rydges North Sydney. Hotel room, despite fulfilling request to be away from lift, was 'tired', airconditioning not working properly, towels worn and torn, bathroom mouldy etc. Dinner was terrible! The wine was the only thing worth mentioning...food served was not what... More

Firstly there was no one available to help with our abundance of luggage upon arrival at 8am??! Found this quite shocking. The rooms were a good size and pleasant, and well house-kept, however some of the required amenities were lacking for us staying as a family with young kids. There was no cooker available. In the end we cut short... More

We stayed 2 nights in the 2 bdrm suite. The room was great with a lounge, kitchen with dishwasher, dining table etc. Staff were very friendly & accommodating. Housekeeping was very good & we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts in the restaurant. Free wifi was very fast.

In short I have never reviewed a property as I'm quiet easy to please and can go with the flow on most things but this stat was so bad I felt compelled to save other travelers a similar experience. Firstly my room type was booked incorrectly leaving myself and a co-worker to share a one bed room on an old... More

We drove past the entry as it is not very well signposted. Check in was fine but we needed to use the stairs from the carpark as you apparently need to go down then up to make the lift work. Once we were in the room things got better. The room (2 bed apartment) was spacious, clean and comfortable. A... More
