Reception were very friendly.. We stayed in an embassy suite. It had plenty of room including a separate bedroom and walk in wardrobe. Needs updating and some TLC as its pretty old. We asked for a quiet room and on the first night had a very loud engagement party (held at the premises) right outside or window (or so it... More

The standard twin room has two double beds, light fittings - half of which did not work, a difficult to operate TV and the bathroom ... where do we start? Cracked tiles, dodgy toilet cistern, chipped basin .... in total need of a refurb. Only good thing - great water pressure. Room service for dinner was quick and ok. However,... More

We booked this hotel for our 2nd wedding celebration after getting married in Bali & were quite disappointed to have nothing special in the room or even be greeted as congratulations Mr & Mrs? We did have the "honeymoon suite" so you'd think they'd know that we just got married. Every hotel we stayed at in Bali treated us like... More

We stayed two nights at Rydges Capitol Hill on our way south. The top floor room was quiet, spacious, clean and very comfortable, although not newly refurbished. The ground floor bar area was pleasant and while well patronised, there was plenty of room for everyone. Breakfast was very good and reasonably priced in comparison with other city hotels we have...

We were in town for a conference. Book in and out very efficient. Service staff just walking by always smiled and said hello. Bistro and coffee shop staff very welcoming and service overall impeccable. Breakfast comprised hot and continental selections and rated very highly by us...fresh juices, pastries, eggs, bacon etc and good range of breads and muffins. The letdown... More

A little dated, but perfectly comfortable. Staff were all polite and helpful. Convenient parking on site, free Wifi and close to Manuka shops. Room service on the pricey side but meals were good. Would stay again.

Had a great stay here over the weekend. The staff were very friendly which made our stay very enjoyable. The check in via email was very handy well. A short walk to Manuka. 15min walk to Kingston and roughly the same walk to Parliament House. Oh and the bed was awesome. So comfortable! Will be staying there again for sure.

We picked this hotel due to it being relatively close to the airport and because our flight was getting in late and we wanted to get some sleep before travelling on. I can only describe this hotel as having a split personality. We arrived to what looked like a very upmarket hotel from the look of the entrance and reception... More

Overall a bit disappointed. Booked this hotel as it had an indoor pool. Too bad it's a bit on the cool side! Also packed exercise gear as hotel has a gym and features pictures of it. Yes, it's true there is a gym on site, but a casual visit is $10- even for guests. And honestly it wa s a... More

Room absolutely huge with ours having a window that opened out to street. The bar here has 5 dollar beers and cocktails from 5pm to 6:30 and that has to be a great deal. Whilst on main road which makes getting everywhere easy it is extremely quiet. Partner stated the darkest room at night which makes sleeping easy. Able to... More
