Buffett breakfast included in our tariff. We chose to eat... More

On arriving at the hotel I was quite impressed by the location and friendliness of staff. The rooms looked lovely at the offset. It was only at midnight as I was ready to call it a day that I discovered the bed had been slept in already and to add insult to injury the underlay was visibly spotted with a... More

Wi_Fi good, good service in bar, room clean and good amenities. Nice Lobby, good staff, steaks well cooked. Well situated near collins street, quiet room. Only issue is that room fel stuffy. Not sure if aircon was pulling air in (it was very noisy) or just recirculating it. Felt a bit flat in morning.

However, it can be very noisy (rubbish collections at 4am, sirens and so on). The wifi is prettify average, the bar and restaurant are... More

Check in staff happily moved my friend to be on the same floor. The rooms are quite spacious for a city hotel, and are very comfortable. I stayed in a... More

I recently stayed at Rydges Melbourne. Staff are professional and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. Internet is free and fast - essential for a working stay. Checking in and out was quick and seamless. The hotel is situated in Exhibition Street and very close to Chinatown so there is a lot of nightlife but the hotel is surprisingly... More

We booked a premium spa suite for our 10 year wedding anniversary. The photo's of the room make it look 10 times better than it is. We paid a premium price and were left feeling very disappointed. Unable to even rent/pay tv movie, so stuck watching standard TV after dinner in the restaurant. We waited a long time for our... More
