I've been staying at Rydges Plaza on and off for many years - I'd class it as a business / budget hotel, the rooms are comfortable, the service, food and pool area were all pretty good for the cost and it's well located hence I kept going back.
This however was my first trip as the new (but sadly not improved) Chelsea Plaza!
A new addition to the hotel on the first floor is a Filipino Nightclub, it opens every night from early evening till 3am. We stayed on the 4th floor, it was like we were in the club!
In fairness the staff did give us options for three alternative rooms, even though it took them an hour to sort. We finally opted for a room on the 7th floor, but sadly you could still hear the bass but at least by midnight we were able to get some actual sleep. Plus the room stunk of smoke, even though we requested a none smoking room.
Also the breakfast has been moved from the lovely room next to the pool and the staff who manned the breakfast buffet area were rude and less than attentive - overall we were so disappointed we cut out trip short and didn't stay the second night.
On check out the reception didn't even ask how our stay was, or why we were leaving early. Sadly it's the last time we'll be staying here, it really has gone down hill and attracts a less than desirable crowd, that coupled with the horrendous thumping disco we'll not be staying here again!
