Hotel room clean, check in staff not very friendly, check out staff better. Bathrooms dated , shower over bath not easy to get in and out of no hand rail to assist , thin rough worn out towels need replacing. Not all rooms have views though very central. Air conditioner temperature control has a mind of its own. Free wifi.

We had a family wedding and decided to stay here, it was a comfortable and welcoming hotel, the front desk staff were helpful and nothing was to much trouble. The room neat and tidy, the beds were great we had a wonderful view. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and enjoyed the buffet breakfasts. My only little issue was... More

We stayed at this hotel overnight after traveling from Toowoomba on our way to Newcastle. Booking and checkin was relatively simply. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly recommending the room service after we explained how tired we were. We were so looking forward to a nice flat white. We were told we could order until 11pm. We were... More

Stayed 1 night. Staff were friendly with free wifi always welcomed. The room was comfy and everything you expect. With only a short drive to the airport, you have the main CBD on one side and a magnificent waterview on the other. Would stay again.

This is my second home for one week of every month. Always have had wonderful service and love the completely natural, almost all organic body products. Actually ordered two king size pillows they are so comfortable, the beds are also the best on my travels. If you're seeking your second home - don't go past the comfort Rydges provides. Especially...

My wife and I are regular visitors to this hotel and generally speaking we are happy to keep returning, but..... on the last two occasions we have spent an evening in the hotel's cocktail lounge. On both occasions we have witnessed two different DJ,s providing the musical entertainment. Can I say what a complete waste of time and money the... More

Our only adverse comment is that the menu in the restaurant for dinner has not changed for many many months so we had dinner at the pub. Please change the menu and include some interesting fish dishes.

One thing that is always a standout for me is the staff and the staff here were great. Nothing was too much trouble and they were happy to assist with whatever we needed. Rooms were clean and tidy and as some have mentioned perhaps in need of some upgrading but very comfortable. Our top floor room had a beautiful view... More

Very nice hotel, location is right on esplanade, easy walk to all shops and restaurants, the room was clean and spacious. Our balcony had no view, it looked right onto another building, that is a bugger when the water views in this area are so fabulous. The hotel is old and definitely in need of some money being spent on... More

The room was large and spacious. The bed was advertised as a king size, but was two singles pushed together and had a pretty hard centre where the mattresses joined together. The restaurant was very expensive, but the food was delicious.

Hi Andrew M, Pleased to read you were impressed with the room size. We do have the Rydges Dream beds in all of the hotel rooms. They are, like you mention a split king bed but when sleeping you aren't meant to feel any divide between the mattress' whatsoever. I am genuinely sorry you didn't have a good sleep on... More
