This hotel was so dirty I had to ask to be moved to another room. The second room was also just as dirty. The floors were so dirty I didn't take my shoes off and the sheets were stained. The curtains were hanging off the hooks, food in the mini bar was past it's used by date, and the chairs... More

Had the unfortunate 2 day stay in the presidential suite . What a hotel can do with a picture on the web site and actually witness and stay in the same room is almost criminal . Room was cold and filthy . Carpet stains , filthy curtains . Dirty windows and a gas fireplace that doesn't work and hadn't for... More

Having tried many venues in Hobart, we decided to try Rydges for an overnight stay, having seen their ad on local TV with a great deal for accommodation and breakfast. The service was excellent, we received an upgrade and enjoyed a well cooked and very enjoyable breakfast. Location is very convenient, with plenty of parking and in a quiet location.... More

This well positioned,solid and quiet place is so close to a very attractive strip shopping area. We were thrilled to find such a variety of eating/coffee places and a cinema which had such great films showing. Made our stay so complete.

I go down to Tassie each year to watch my son play basketball. This year I chose to stay at Rydges in Hobart and was absolutely delighted with the staff, the room, the location and the food. The period features of the hotel are just wonderful. Parking is superb. I will definitely be staying here again!

We had a short 3 day stay after I retired as a nice quiet break, the hotel was very good for its rating, the food was excellent and well priced, it was a little way out of town but that was no problem as I had a hire car and there was plenty of off street parking. The rooms were... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. We stayed for one night and got breakfast in the morning. The rooms were spacious and clean. For this price, this is a bargain. Bathroom needed a little cleaning esp dust but no major worry. Would definitely stay there again and again with my family of five. Absolutely no complaints at all

We booked a mystery deal through Wotif and for $89 including parking, we found we couldn't really complain about the value for money. However if I had paid full price I would've been disappointed, especially considering other options available in Hobart on a similar price scale. We were "upgraded" to an antique suite in the main building and the condition... More

Our family of 5 stayed overnight, we got a great deal of $109 with breakfast included for the whole family. Our room was much bigger than we expected, we were very happy with it. Yes it's a bit old and outdated but the beds were very comfortable and the rooms lovely and warm. Kitchenette was very handy with young children.... More
