Have been going to the Rydges for about 30 years......some years have been poor but is fine now. Bathrooms still need upgrade. Service at reception was good, rooms were big but our room had a desk chair and the back of the chair just extended too far backwards making it for me unusable, the only other option was to sit...

This is an outstanding establishment. Big rooms with the very best cleanliness. Great spaces to relax and the indoor garden is great. Service at the front desk is amazing and welcoming. The cafe is also great and the restaurant food is to die for. Nikki in the restaurant was a delight, very bubbly and spot on with her food recommendations.... More

Hotel and Rooms are dated. It is the staff that make this hotel and your stay a comfortable one. Every staff member, booking staff, check in, restaurant, gym, all were amazingly helpful and responses prompt. I have stayed at many a hotel and I cannot express how impressed I was with the can do attitude of all the staff. Thank... More

I came to Canberra for a meeting at Parliament House, Rydges beds are always so lovely, and now there is also free wifi. Didn't eat or have breakfast there, as I had to catch an early flight, would stay again.

Had a balcony overlooking a park. 5 min walk to Manuka for a restaurants, cafes & shops. Parking isn't included and costs $12 per night. We were told we'd be booked if we parked on... More

Before commenting on the room itself, let me get a whinge out of the way. I had stayed at this Hotel in an executive king spa suite some time ago, and was horrified both by the disgustingly dirty shower (months of accumulated grime) and the brusque apathy of one one of the reception staff. I emailed voicing my complaints and... More

We travel to Canberra usually once per year, and we always stay at this hotel. This was a disappointing stay. We were unfortunately given a room looking into the atrium (room 351). These rooms face into the hotel, and are dark with not much natural light. I managed to persist with reception to get moved to a room facing out,... More
