9x pieces of meat, 3 small stale squares of cheese and one pice of aeroplane bread = antipasto plater at $18. You be the judge if this is good value for drinks and tapas. Asked for more bread and received a little bun. Won't be ordering here again.

The Rydges less than 5 minutes walk from the beach with views to die for on the seafront side of the hotel. Breakfast good in new style restaurant. The hotel is starting to get a little weather worn and needs some TLC. But still a nice place to stay,out of the front door and 2 minutes walk to a great... More

The best thing about this hotel is the view. There's nothing *wrong* with it, but I got the strong sense that the hotel was struggling and that the budget for everything was stretched to its limit. Any service, although never rude, was slow due to lack of staff - all employees I encountered seemed like they had better places to... More

I recently checked in at 2am after driving all night. I arrived exhausted and explained such to the check in staff. I was allocated room 209... Worst room EVER! I could hear the lifts all morning and the garbage trucks and deliveries sounded like they were being collected straight from my balcony. The room size was large. There was urine... More

Hi 8kindness8, I am most sorry to hear of the unsatisfactory services that you encountered on your stay. Our customer service let us down on this occasion which is not common for us here, hence very disappointing for us and for you. In relation to the condition of the bathroom this is by no means acceptable and I wish to... More

I was a little hesitant in staying here after reading some negative reviews, but it actually was a pretty good little hotel. Here is a quick summary: Pros: Great location on the beach - especially if you can stay on an upper floor - the views are amazing. The bed was really comfortable. The buffet breakfast was really good -... More

This is a handy hotel if you want to be close to Cronulla Beach. The Reception area and outside of the building has been modernized but the rooms are tired.

I agree with some of the other reviews. Great location, very friendly staff but décor was very dated. The bed was excellent. My room (disabled) was an unusual shape which made watching the TV difficult - the TV was about five meters away from the bed head. The air conditioner did not want to heat despite being on high.

Couldn't get a better spot to stay in Cronulla. Really nice rooms me great view of the ocean. They have an 11:00am checkout with I think is a real bonus. We walked down to the mall (5 mins) grabbed a delightful breakfast and came back to the hotel, sat on the balcony and enjoyed the amazing view of the ocean.
