We stayed one night - chosen because of QANTAS offering six frequent flyer points per dollar spent. The hotel is showing it's age and is very much in need of a big renovation. The skylight over the dining room below, which we overlooked, was dirty and clogged with leaves. Not an attractive view. It's fine if you are just looking... More

We stayed for one night in a King Spa Suite while visiting an exhibition at the National Gallery. The hotel is located close to the National Gallery and is ideal if you are visiting there. The reception staff were very courteous and professional. Our room was clean and comfortable, breakfast buffet was standard hotel breakfast buffet fare. We ordered room... More

The King Spa Suites are definitely a highlight and don’t cost much more, a bit more room in the bedroom and guest feedback on the larger bathroom in these rooms is very positive. I note that there were a few issues needing my attention, please contact me if you are returning, I’m certain we can make the next stay more... More

The hotel is in a very convienent location for Canberra in general, with Manuka shopping area a short distance away. The hotel was pleasant to stay in for 2 nights with a very comfortable Queen bed in a quiet and good sized room. The room though looking slighly old, had the odd newer fittings, whilst having a nice outlook on... More

I joined Rydges Priority Rewards program for free which entitled us to much cheaper accommodation, 20% off food and tickets to the NGA to see the Inca Gold Exhibition. Our room was well maintained and comfortable and staff gave excellent service. The breakfast buffet, also included in our package, was one of the best we've experienced as opposed to the... More

Our room was great - comfy, clean and spacious. The bathroom could use an update but was spotless. Hotel seems to making the most out of what it has. Bar was a little outdated but food at breakfast and dinner was very nice. Dinner was too pricey through. More wait staff needed that evening. Our stay was quiet and staff... More

We stayed two nights to visit a local festival as photos of the hotel on line presented well. The receptionist that greeted us around 9:00pm on Friday night was very good and checked with the café to see that we could still get a coffee and cake, not a problem. We off loaded our luggage and dropped into the café... More

Stayed here for a work trip. Staff friendly and the hotel was quite and comfortable but dated. Room on the smallish side and dusty - maybe renovations had been going on because the back of our door was covered in saw dust. Windows unable to be opened so could be a little stuffy. The breakfast was good, with a large... More

I was pleased to read that the location worked for you and breakfast was good. Hotel rates vary a bit in Canberra, best to book early and typically higher when Parliament is sitting. There were a few issues requiring our attention, please contact me if you are returning. Sincerely Jon Ackary General Manager jon_ackary@rydges.com More

Good value motel. Clean room. We had a twin deluxe room. Bathroom could do with an upgrade, not a fan of shower over bath. Free wifi. Nice common lounge area outside the dominion suite which our family utilised and it was a great bonus. Friendly efficient staff who helped in every way. Well maintained motel and grounds. Quiet room.

Big sleep-in with great block-out blinds is really great ! Thank you for the very thorough review, may I suggest a King Spa Room next time as it has a shower separate from the bath. We have more than 20 of these rooms and are not much more expensive. Please visit us again. Sincerely Jon Ackary General Manager jon_ackary@rydges.com More

We stated for 1 night in a twin share room. The room was basic and clean though dusty. The mini bar obviously had bit been used much as it was quite dusty which was no surprise given the price of the items.
