The hotel itself is tired and stuffy but the customer service the next morning upon check out was just belong awful. The straw that broke my patience went something like this .... Hotelstaff: Good morning sir would you like agree coffee this morning? Me: Yes please that would be lovely. Hotel staff : Would you like to join our loyalty... More

The 2 bedroom spa suite was perfect for the five of us. The lounge area was spacious with a curtain separating the single beds when required. The sofa also opened up to a sofa bed. Double shower. Clean. The only reason why it doesn't get a 5 star rating was that the king size bed was the softest bed I've... More

I stayed here for a friends party in the city. Not wanting to travel all the way home, we booked separate rooms. On arrival (at 2pm) we were told that rooms weren't ready yet, and would be called when they could get to them (This was annoying as we had rang ahead to make sure they were available). After a...

This is probably one of the Hotel's I have ever stayed at. The Room Service is wonderful. Steak was the best I have had in a long time. The Room is not spacious if your use to massive. But it does the job for sleep, location and shops are a walk away.

We stayed in a king size room & were totally happy. We got a very comfortable bed, a lovely large room with separate couch for sitting on as well as a good sized bathroom. Breakfast served was of a high quality & staff are super friendly. Hotel is ideally located next to theatres, china town & all other conveniences that... More

The bed! It is as dreamy as it says... But to start at the start, we dropped in early to leave our luggage only to be told if we waited, that we'd have our room within 15 minutes. The rooms were clean and inviting, but the spa bath was definitely the big ticket winner. Until we hit the bed. I... More

We stayed 2 nights. As we arrived from an early international flight we stored our luggage and the hotel telephoned when our room was ready, we were in our room by 10.15am which was great. The hotel is close to 3 theatres in the area and across the road from China town. Staff were friendly and professional on book in.... More

My husband and I are currently staying at Rydges Melbourne for our second stay here, to end off our honeymoon. Upon check in, we were greeted with friendly service. I did book a special deal through qantas for extra points. We arrived around 230-3pm and our room was not yet ready. We were given drinks vouchers to use and was... More

We have stayed here several times before in standard Queen Room which is fine for an overnight stay. Had booked same room this time but received an upgrade which was really nice to have the extra room of the suite. Hotel is ideally located in central CBD. Bar was a bit busy due to conference on at the time but... More
