This was my first visit to this hotel and I found the staff to be very efficient and friendly. It is in a great location and the food is wonderful. Unfortunately, the rooms and decor are a bit on the "dated" side and are looking a tad tired. The bed was very comfortable and the free Wi-Fi sort of made... More

This is an old hotel where the bathrooms were updated but the rest of the rooms left a lot to be desired. Odour group of 6 were almost the last people in the restaurant and they refused to give one of our party something light off the Room Service menu

Stayed for one night with my wife. Got a good price from booking.com. Room is very clean and they have free wifi in the room. Also has fast internet cable. Bathroom looks very new so am surprised to see the reviews of others who mentioned otherwise. Have to pay $5 for car park so it is not free. Just press... More

Stayed two nights there. Bathroom not upto the mark, beds alright, construction noise all around the place. Good location, free parking on site but usually very full. Good food, friendly staff and good pool. Overall needs a big makeover. Over priced for what is provided.

Wow!. What a find. For country people like us, not keen on tackling city traffic, narrow park houses and cramped accommodation, nothing could have filled the bill better than the Rydges South Park. It was so easy to find on the corner of the Adelaide CBD's South and West Terraces, had safe, gated parking, friendly reception service on arriving,spacious room... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel on a girls trip. Whilst we didn't spend much time in the hotel as we were always out its clear to say the place needs some maintenance. Outdated bathrooms and just general maintenance required still a pleasant stay and even though it was winter made use of the pool and spa as it... More

Stayed one night there. Arrived late and left early. Got free parking on site and we are lucky to find a spot. Room is getting dated. There is crack in the sink. We had a reasonable ok sleep that night. The window or door to the balcony cannot be opened. Maybe for the safety reason. But then it is hard... More

The most rundown poorly presented hotel I have had the misfortune to stay in. The door of my room, number 219, was badly marked and appeared dirty. Once inside, it was easier to understand why the door was marked. One half of the security lock was missing, apparently having been ripped out of the frame. Somebody wanted to get in... More

Very happy with our stay at Rydges South Park. They upgraded our room on arrival which was very nice as we now had a bed each. Happy hour at the bar had cheap drinks and a nice view. Breakfast in the cafe was lovely. Bit of a hike into the shopping/restaurant area but felt very safe and comfortable walking at... More

The rooms at this hotel have been renovated and they have done a great job! The location is fair, although quite a hike from the city or any retail / restaurants. The rooms are a little noisy if you get a street facing room, but are a good size. The staff (and maybe the ones I encountered are new) seem... More
