As a Rydges Priority Guest we received a great discount and our room was upgrade from a superior twin (with dreambeds) to a family room (no dream beds). Our first impressions of the family room was it was not up to the Rydges standard and it looked a little "tired". It seemed more of a budget hotel room than a... More

Room was dirty, run down and they hadn't switched on the heating before I arrived. Lock on the door didn't even work. Neighbours got home at 12.30 am and woke everyone up, then snored the rest of the night. Walls so paper thin you could hear everything. Room service guy was so rude. Booked online and clearly didn't read the... More

We did hire a car so the distance to good restaurants and town was not a problem for us...we stayed in a family room which had a lovely view right out to... More

Unfortunately I booked this on line. I always read the reviews of places, but this time got distracted and didn't. Said it was within walking distance from town, leisurely stroll. I don't think so! It took us more than 30 minutes at quite a brisk pace to walk into town. The room itself was disgusting. The floors were filthy, and... More

This is a hotel we visited in March 2014.The curtain rail fell onto the bed. The pulldown bed we slept on for two nights was dirty and ripped. The manager was unavailable from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning when we departed. The drawers were dirty, the freezer compartment of the fridge was broken and there was an opened carton of...

We have stayed here several times. You can get some very good deals. We only paid 75$ with a free drink. for the standard room which for Hobart in this location is very good value. Only 5 minutes walk into teh Nth Hobart restaurant strip and ample parking. Check in can be slow on occasions but was ok this time.... More

Disappointed with room. Dated and bit grubby in places. Booked without a lot of research because it is a Ridges hotel. On a positive, staff were lovely and helpful. Breakfast in cafe was nice and atmosphere relaxed. Just needs refurbishment or name change away from Ridges.

Should have paid more notice to the reviews already written. The Room I had was dingy and dirty, the exhaust fan in the bathroom was encrusted with dirt and fluffy bits, I was to afraid to use the in house tea and coffee facilities as I was unsure of cleanliness of the equipment given the state of the cupboard that...

I have stayed here a number of times as it is booked by work. Checking in after hours is very tiresome, waiting at the bar while the only worker serves drinks and then eventually gets around to the line of people wanting to check in is very ordinary. Rooms are generally very large but very 'old school'. Often rooms are... More
