Yes, it's your standard big 'ol hotel in a tourist town, but the Rydges manages to add a little character to the experience. The rooms are HUGE - my 2nd floor room contained two (yes, 2 ) king sized beds with plenty of space to spare. Aforementioned beds are extremely comfortable, and we had a nice view out over the racecourse (watching the horses train in the mist early one morning was pretty cool).
They're currently refreshing the decor and some areas feel a little tired. However, the room was very clean and housekeeping were efficient and unobtrusive.
Hats off to the staff here too - a friendly and welcoming bunch, exactly the sort of people we need to welcome international visitors.
