Stayed here one night. The room was reasonable but the bathtub was extremely slippery and there were no handrails to aid getting in and out of the tub for a shower (not great if pregnant - which I currently am or if elderly). Breakfast was disappointing at the time we went the food went too quickly and wasn't replenished quickly... More

We had a great welcome. Our room was on the 1st floor overlooking the swimming pool. The breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. We had room service which was also good and a great option when you arrive late and are tired. My 2 negatives are the car parking costs and the room not being serviced until almost... More

Totally over priced, dirty (sheets had a blood stain on them and called house keeping to have them changed), toilet didn't flush very average location. We usually stay at the hyatt when in Canberra and could not get in for 2 nights so we divided our stay.... What a let down from the hyatt and paid $200 more for the... More

In the last 10 years that we've visited Canberra, this has always been my choice of hotel there. The partner insisted on changing but I said we'll stay here, it will be good, we're used to is. Noticeable decline in the level of service. Did the hotel group (the owners) downgraded this, because I am unsure the price has decreased,... More

Stayed with family for 2 nights in October 2014. Received a very warm welcome from reception which was a great start. Hotel room was nice but a bit outdated, found hand rail in bathroom broken & informed cleaning services of damage not quite sure if it has been rectified. Resturant was decent & the meals were of a high standard.... More

I found $270 steep to pay for one night in a average room. The hotel was not near any shops. The service was very very good. All staff was very friendly and hotel was clean. Room 320 needs it's doors painted and bathroom did have mould all over. The beds however were extremely comfortable

Hi Helen, Thanks for the review! We are currently in the process of getting all of our rooms painted, in regards to the mould in the bathroom I will get our housekeeping department to investigate the bathroom. Great to hear you enjoyed the Rydges Dream beds we love them too! Thanks again Kind Regards Patrick Miller More

Stayed here for two nights for work. During my stay they were replacing the carpet in the hallways which made for that horrible carpet glue smell in the air. The rooms are newly refurbished, lovely big comfy bed with lots of pillow choices. It's a shame they didn't repaint all the doors and cabinetry, these were chipped and worn, letting... More

I stayed here over the weekend and it was quite busy. Lots of people in the food areas. A convention was on, also school holidays and Floriade. I am a PriorityGuest member and on check in you can get a free upgrade - we were moved from an Embassy Suite to the Pavillion Suite. It was amazing. The space was... More

Joined Rydges Rewards to get the Questacon family package at a reduced rate. Used the online check in that morning and was asked asked to select an option for type of room/facility. Chose 'Best View' option but was given the room closest to reception with a view to the car/taxi wait area at the entrance. Room was freezing and heating... More

Rooms need improving, room service food was a bit below average & wasn't hot but Salad was nice. Reception lady was superb but there was no help with our baggage. The Pool & Spa are great. Secure parking $12 per day which is cheap.
