good facilities close to Parliament House and other government buildings. Friendly and efficient staff. Room was well appointed and comfortable. Good gym (though $10 entry seems a bit much when others offer this for free). Close to Manuka so lots of food options. Definitely stay there again.

Nice and spacious with great beds but early 90s decor. Pool and spa are included but gym is $10. Car park has heaps of concrete posts so be careful! Book online at rydges.com.au and get some good specials, unless parliament is sitting of course. But don't eat dinner here. I followed up a dried out piece of salmon last week... More

I spent two nights at the Rydges Capital Hill and it is a great location for restaurants and local amenities. The hotel has obviously been done up and the room itself was nice, but the bathroom lacked the same level of quality! It seems that any refurbishment is based on the core functions, not the amenities. Free WiFi is a... More

We stayed one night here and received a great deal that included a welcome drink, parking, breakfast and a late check out of 1 pm. The happy hour is a great thing, a huge selection of drinks, even a few cocktails, for $5 with a number of small tapas like plates for $5. We found this to be a great... More

Stayed here with family mid-week to attend a social engagement after getting a good online rate. The hotel and rooms are dated but still very comfortable. The atrium style of the courtyard is quite pleasant and the staff were accommodating. A big plus was the free WiFi, which isn't the norm in Australia. The location is also excellent, close to...

We paid only $121 for a night here, including parking. This is astonishing value for money. The room was very large, it is walking distance to Manuka and its oval, and the staff were lovely. The bed was comfortable and very fast internet ( by Australian standards) was included. The bathroom needs renewing and we had to ring room service... More

Needed to spend the one night in Canberra for a personal matter staying with my family, wife and two children. Chose Rydges based on location and special deal. $166 for a twin share that included breakfast and parking. This suited us perfectly. The reason I chose Rydges though was the free Wi-Fi. I can't believe other hotels are still charging... More

My room was pre-booked and check in went smoothly. Reception staff were friendly. Checkout was quick. My room was on the first floor and the balcony looked over the ground floor ( I think a function area as they were setting up chairs and tables at one stage of my visit. The bed was comfortable and the main area was... More
