Pretty much a perfect location. Easy drive to CBD and Waite Campus. Rooms are comfortable, but the hotel needs a little updating. Staff were efficient. Lifts were old and painfully slow. With a bit of updating, this would be a great place.

This happened to me for the very first time. The room had a dirty and stainy carpet and the pillows looked not really fresh. Under the cover, there were all kinds of body hairs and body fluid stains... incredible. Got a different room - much the same but with changed bed sheets. Staff didn't seem surprised when I told him... More

Our key card didn't work, the lifts are a death trap and jerk around and didn't stop level and took forever to arrive, mini bar had empty containers in it, there was noise the whole night like someone was dragging cylinders across the ground in the room above or the renovations from the day were continuing late into the night....

I was upgraded to a premier spa suite and the room was indeed very impressive. It had recently refurbished and it was beautifully appointed with large spa and double shower. Rydges beds are always superb and this was no exception. My check in was efficient and the front desk person extremely jm and friendly. The Skyline Restaurant is a must.... More

Decent location, close to all the action but no real views to speak of. Staff were attentive and courteous. Breakfast at $20 a head (we got a reduced price) was satisfactory although milk seemed slightly off and having to pay extra for any additions to your omelette in my view is asking a bit much. No option for a newspaper... More

The Fire Alarm went off several Times on Friday Night. My Room Keys had to be re-configured 4 Times over two days. My Room did not have any opening windows for fresh air. My Room overlooking the Park did not have a balcony. I ordered a Room Service Pizza which cost $33.00, took an Hour, was Cold and not even... More

Stayed for business. Booking in was seamless and pleasant. The building was clean, but the elevator needs a bit of work. It looks a little worn down, not broken, just unloved. The room was excellent, clean, tidy and well positioned. A big downside was the bathroom taps. I was surprised that they were so difficult to use. I am a... More

The first room we checked into was not particularly clean. It had a broken aircon, chipped furniture, sticky sliding door to small bathroom (door had massive scratch down it). Could hear every elevator ride. Discussed the broken aircon and noise with staff and were upgraded for free due to full capacity. This room was much better. Well presented, clean and... More

Our stay overall was average. We felt the bed was uncomfortable though and it would have been nice to have an actually doona rather than a thin quilt. Also would have been nice to access the balcony or even open a window. We had a full breakfast which we felt was very expensive for the basic options available to eat.

I stay in a hotel about 150 nights a year. These were the worst 4 nights I've had in thousands. When I arrived, there were not only stains on the carpet, but there was a used hygienic panty liner stuck to the sink (in plain site... shouldn't have been missed). Additionally, on Sunday the drilling construction in the hotel was... More
