Stayed here due to proximity to a Central Station. Arrived on Good Friday at 1800 - check-in took forever...not enough staff! The room was a double - nothing special at all. Was on 3rd floor facing Albion Street...the noise from the street and adjacent rooms kept me up all night!!! Asked for a change, but the hotel was full due... More

Stayed over he Easter long weekend. I like the location as it is not from Central Station. The rooms are spacious however the shower pressure is way to soft even at full throttle. The bed was comfortable. A few soft pillows would have been nice. The breakfast was chaotic. The scrambled eggs were awful and the poached eggs way too... More

Stayed here in Good Friday and had booked an Easter Show package. Amazing value for money, room+breakfast+parking+show tickets. Unfortunately they had no show tickets, but repaid us later. Rooms are spacious and the staff very helpful. Pool is a plus. Breakfast was a varied feast, and they catered for the gluten free diet as well. Great location to Surrey Hills... More

Great price. Good location, loved being walking distance to great eateries and also darling Harbour/central station. Staff were friendly but check out was a difficult process. Wasn't offered any of the priority guest rewards like free drinks. The beds weren't as comfy as the rydges signature beds I've experienced at other locations. The deadbolt on the door wouldn't work and... More

I have stayed at this hotel previously. Nothing is ever a problem. Outstanding service and great location. Breakfast was good and the beds were comfortable. Free upgrade was given on check in too! The staff were brilliant - especially Buster!

Very basic rooms, clean and what you need, surprisingly quiet for location. Rooms need a bit of a touch up though as they have some rough edges. All the staff I encountered where very nice. Pool was nice as was hot tub (but too many children running around to actually use). The gym was nice. As with other Sydney hotels... More

Located a bit out of the way from the city. Found the room good and the staff were good to advise on things to do. But a fair walk up to the city. Is good near to the central station which has other advantages.

Stayed 3 days for business and the room was spacious with all the amenities. Lift is a little slow and location is about 700m walk to Central Station. I would have given this hotel a higher rating if not for last night's incident. There was a roach under the couch that really freaked me out. Can't believe this was happening... More
