I live in the Shire and had my parents over for a few days. We chose Rydges. There are not many options for hotel in Cronulla. Service was perfect. Room was standard, nothing special. View are just spectacular, cronulla beach from the top is amazing. I really recommend the hotel, don't expect anything super, but clean and with good service.

I had stayed in a Rydges hotel in Perth earlier in my trip to Oz... which was nice.. The location of this hotel is excellent, right next to the beach in Cronulla. My room was 704 which had a really nice view of the sea.. but the issue was that there was no double glazing on the windows, and as... More

After reading other reviews we were expecting a tired wornout room and yes there were certainly a few things that indicated tiredness such as rips in curtains, tiles were cracked in the bathroom etc but the room was clean and tidy and the facilities were great. We did request towels as we only had two amongst a family of four,... More

Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel itself looks aged, room size was as expected but like everyone else is saying could do with a makeover. Cleanliness is OK, bed is comfortable. View from the balcony out to the ocean is very refreshing.

Great location but simply overpriced for what you get. Almost $400.00 for a Saturday night is pretty standard for Sydney (City) these days but I was expecting a little more than a tired old premises that hasn't seen an upgrade for a looooong time. Friendly, helpful staff but that's about where my praise ends unfortunately.

Stayed here on the 12th. Was a one bedroom unit/room. Reception and breakfast staff were great but the property itself was old and tired. The room smelt so musty that even though we only stayed overnight and didn't unpack our suitcases clothes that we didn't wear even came home smelling musty and needed to be washed as soon as we...

Stayed here one night on a transit through Sydney and was pretty disappointed. The room was small and in need of a complete "make over" and the bathroom was even worse!!! On the plus side the view from the balcony was nice and the staff very helpful but this is certainly overpriced in terms of the standard of accommodation. I... More

Room Size OK Carpets grubby , Curtain Torn , Dead flies around bottom of windows, Bathroom antiquated , Corridors have musty smell , Very deceiving as entrance hall gives a different expectation it appears all the updates are here. Breakfast was better than before but food should be french Have stayed here several times BUT NO MORE..

Restaurant and Bar great and view is nice but rooms really need a makeover. Mine was tiny this trip and carpet was aweful. Staff are generally friendly and helpful. Price is high for where and what it is.

We spent 3 nights at the Rydges Cronulla 27/11 - 29/11 after receiving a special deal due to my complaint to Rydges when we last stayed there in. I am an ex Shire person and enjoy coming home. The ocean view was great, the bed was very comfortable and staff very good, but that is where it ends, hallways musty,... More

Thanks Bruce for your feedback. It is great to read of your return stay but of course disappointing that we were not able to wow you on your return. Rydges have made some great changes to rooms on the 11th floor as well as progressing down to rooms on floors 9 and 10. We would love to see you back... More
