We were surprised that we were charged $11.48 as a transaction fee for using a credit card without being advised in advance of the fee. We had to call reception to have milk delivered to the room as it had not been replenished when the room was service3d.

I only stayed here one night between flights home. It was a rushed booking and i hadn't done much research on the hotel. On the way I checked tripadvisor and the reviews were all fairly poor which had my sister and i worried. However, upon arrival the hotel had a beautiful lobby, staff with great customer service and great food... More

Stayed in the Domion Suite - quiet and excellent accommodation. Well appointed bathroom and bed a luxury to sleep in. The suite had a small kitchen, only issue is not enough forks and one of the frypans was dirty. The wooden venetians also need a little updating as some did not allow any adjustment. Breakfast was included - the food... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights, the room was huge but a little bit dated, there is a strange sink in the lounge room (suppose to be a kitchenette?), there was no toaster or free biscuits :( I think to encourage you to order room service or eat at the restaurant. Bathroom was huuuuggeee. The buffet breakfast... More

Stayed here overnight, and whilst the hotel did seem a bit dated, it wasn't trying to be anything it's not. It's a decent hotel with good rooms and service, and obviously a good location. However, as mentioned, it's nothing to rave about. Stay because it's consistent, but that's about it.

We stayed here twice in 3 weeks. Both times the service and staff were very pleasant and cooperative. We stayed here 12 months ago and my report on the food was quite negative, but it can honestly say that in July 2014, the food was perfect. The rooms are big ( but a little dated) and everything was clean and... More

The ladies at the front desk were fantastic! The really accommodated my 6yo daughter. The rooms were very spacious and modern. The bathroom was dated but we tend not to spend too much time in there. The food was good. Staying there broke up the trip to the snow.

We stayed two nights here in July. The room was spacious and very clean. The fittings are a little but they all worked. The buffet breakfast package was a more than adequate start to the day and the food was freshly cooked. The staff at this motel are very polite and patient. I would stay here again for sure

I recently stayed at Rydges for one night in a executive king spa suite with my boyfriend. Reception was very friendly, although my booking through booking.com had not been recorded in their system the receptionist quickly sorted it all out and we were off to our room.
