In my opinion, a VERY expensive hotel either has the quality to back up it's pricing structure, OR it is taking advantage of it's paying guests.
Unfortunately, in Rydges case, it was the latter.
Admittedly there was a conference in downtown Perth, but to charge the equivalent of £270 sterling a night, (not including breakfast) and then charge for WiFi and bottled water in a VERY average room is absolutely unforgiveable!!
They will not have my custom, or anyone associated with me in the future.
Location is very good, but quality of furnishings in room equate to nothing better than any of the Holiday Inn Express type hotels.
VERY disappointed at their efforts to make a short term gain by raising prices massively.
I only write reports when either very pleased or very disappointed and so it is evident I was NOT impressed!!!
