“Short stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food and service in the restaurant and café excellent. The only comment I have about the rooms are they are a little "tired", curtains need replacement as do some of the floor coverings.

Located on the outskirts of the CBD in a quiet corner of the grid. In fact a little too far from everything.

On the corner of two busy main roads. Despite this the room was very quiet.

The bathroom was large and had been updated and refitted. It was a delight. The test of the room was tired and basic.

The comfort of the bed and pillows was the one if the worst I have tolerated.

Try to get a room high at the back (facing the city).

Cafe/restaurant downstairs provided great coffee and well priced healthy breakfast.

always a great stay at the Rydges, friendly staff and the catering is excellent, i do enjoy staying there and look forward to the next stay, the Manager Jeremy is very easy going and looks after his guests well

Room Tip: can't escape the noise of the city no matter where you stay, just ask the Manager he can work so...

I stay here every time I'm in Adelaide.on business, even if I'm travelling outside of the city. The staff are superb, especially Tom, Sushan, Sophie and the guys in the bar and restaurant, I'm always greeted like a long lost family member, Jeremy the manager takes a personal interest in his guests and goes out of his way to make sure you're ok and enjoying your stay. The restaurant and food are first class and probably far above the quality you would expect in this kind of hotel, all in all I can't fault Rydges Southpark or their staff. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

We stayed overnight as a friend had their Wedding Reception at the hotel. As another reviewer has stated, the hotel is starting to look a bit tired in places, but the room was reasonably sized (a Superior Queen, 1xQueen bed & 1xSingle), had a view of the Parklands, and was meticulously clean. Every member of the staff we encountered were fantastic. The breakfast, which was included in our room price as part of the bridal party special, was amazing, and the staff, even though they were extremely busy (as all of the bridal party guests who stayed came for breakfast with the newly wed couple) were pleasant and couldn't do enough to please and always with a smile.

Stayed at Rydges South Park for a work trip. The hotel is reasonably close to the CBD with all that this means in terms of access to restaurants and shops in general. But the hotel also has the benefit of being directly across the road from the parkland ringing the CBD. This makes for a nice visual aspect from your room. I also appreciated the fairly cheap ($5/day) parking and relative ease of being able to drive away in the morning. You could leave the CBD precinct without having to deal with the higher level of traffic lights within the CBD proper. Overall a location with a good balance of access to the CBD for people with vehicles.
I also liked the system run by the hotel whereby you could decline daily room service in return for a discount on your breakfast. For a two day visit there is not real need to have room service exzcept on the last day. I therefore got to enjoy my breakfast for just that little bit less.

I recently stayed at Rydges for two nights, on business. Although the hotel is starting to look a bit tired in places, it's still quite comfortable and adequate for a stay of a few nights. The staff are generally friendly and efficient, and the facilities are OK.
I enjoy a swim, but found the 6th-floor pool barely big enough for 5-6 strokes. Breakfast is served in the ground-floor cafe area, with food arranged in some crowded corners - another minor irritation.
On the positive side, the beds are very comfortable, and it's nice to have an expansive parkland over the road. Overall, Rydges offers reasonable value for money, including the $5 daily charge for car parking.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room on the higher floors, to minimise traffic noise.
