So recently stated here for work. It was very convenient in that regard. Very close to the CBD and ample parking with lots of choice for dining close by. The room its self was very clean and quiet and had all that I required however it felt terribly dated. The layout was also really bizarre with the lifts being the centre of the floor and many rooms behind it so it felt like a rabbit warren. At times it felt rather spooky. Also they have music and I mean BAD music piped everywhere. You can literally hear it before you enter the building. It is on 24/7 from what I could gather. In the restaurant and even in the toilet. I don't mind a little background music but this like 80's shoulder pads. Loud and proud. I would recommend the buffet breakfast which was one of the best I've had in the hotel in a long while. The housekeeping, room service (which was also very good, if somewhat hap hazard - order nachos and they came with no sour cream or guacamole but a quick phone call rectified that quick smart), bar and wait staff were all very friendly and professional however the reception could do with some improvement. I had difficulties paying with an authorized credit card number through work and yet they wanted to physically see the card. I didn't have the card. I've never had a company card and it has never been a problem anywhere else not even in other Rydges so I was not sure what the problem was but it was a BIG problem. Numerous phone calls and in the end they wanted a copy of my own credit card - but I was not paying for the room the company was. Anyway I complied and was not charged however in my experience as a business hotel this is not normal practice. So a mixed bag or should I say a bad mixed tape.
