Pros: The price was the thing that drew me to this venue - we got a good deal from booking.com for @111/night for Fri/Sat night, and was more than happy to pay $12/night for parking because of this low rate. I am also a member of Rydges Priority Guest Rewards, and the rate I was given from being a Genius... More

Stayed here a night on a business trip. It's a little out of the way if you like night life, but the village of Manuka is not far. When I was there it was too hot to go out. Has a nice indoor pool to cool off, also a small gym. Hotel itself is ok, it's a long long walk... More

Dear gummer99, Thank you for choosing to stay at Rydges Capital Hill on your business trip. Depending on what sort of night life you are after, the hotel is also very close to the Kingston foreshore that offer a lot of bars & restaurants and this area is very popular with the locals. The hotel power points were originally laid... More

We took the package to stay for 2 Nights to see the Tom Roberts exhibition at the National Gallery. Melissa at reception was friendly and very helpful at both check-in and check-out. We had a modern bathroom, but the room itself was very dark, with the only window overlooking an internal covered courtyard. The restaurant meal was excellent and waiters... More

My husband and I stayed at Rydges Capital Hill in Canberra for two nights in January 2016. We booked an Executive King Spa Suite which was lovely and spacious. A very comfortable king size bed and a small balcony. The bathroom was relatively spacious, however, the toilet was tucked behind the door which made it a little difficult to get... More

The night prior to our stay here we stayed at a different Rydges hotel, so we were able to compare the service here to that in the sister hotel. Rydges Capitol Hill did not live up to our expectations. The room was clean, but the furniture didn’t seem to fit the room – it felt a little thrown together. The... More
