We stayed for one night on return from snow trip. The hotel is currently upgrading rooms - fresh painting, new bathrooms. Location of Rydges can not be beaten - so easy to access on way to and from snow and easy drive to Canberra's many attractions. The hotel has a restaurant but it is a short 5 minute walk to... More

The hotel is well located a short walk from Manuka's restaurants and the lake. The room we stayed in was spacious and well appointed. Our room was on the ground floor which is recommended as separate glass doors open into the hotel atrium allowing for easy access to the hotel restaurant and other facilities. I used the hotel pool which... More

We had the ambassador suite and were very pleased with the size. The lounge room was huge, and the bedroom was also great. Regular sized bathroom seemed clean. We ate at the restaurant and the food was lovely- I had a margerita pizza and my husband had the pork belly. We received the priority rewards discount. Didn't have any issues.... More

Rydges Canberra is conveniently located on the Southern side of the city, close to a good range of restaurants in Manuka a short walk away. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Parking can sometimes be a challenge.

We took a suite for the weekend. The room was large and clean, bathroom was huge, and slightly dated. If staying here again and probably just get a normal room. The bed was two (2) steps up from the sofa and tv, which is fine as long as you remember it if you get up in the night. Hotel has... More

This was our third visit to Rydges Capital Hill and while my review from earlier this year is still reflective of the generally high quality of this hotel our experience upon checking in and checking out this time had us scratching our head and questioning the quality of staff training.

Good sized room with all one needs when on business trip. Gym good & restaurant serves quality food. Staff helpful, and location near Manuka shops & Cafes great. Cold city to visit but this hotel meets the needs. Great bar area, with friendly service.

Had a great queen room - nice linen, clean bathroom, great location. But the stay was ruined by the cigarette smoke wafting through my room all night. Later discovered it was probably because my room was located near the bar which has an outdoor smoking area. Seriously though, why put hotel rooms in the direct line of smoking areas? Was... More

The hotel has a very congenial bar area and a pleasant restaurant. My room was spacious and had an attractive curved window. Bathroom had my required "make up area". However, there was no extractor fan, so the mirror steamed up. Win some lose some. The bathroom was pleasant. The shower rose didn't seem to be working properly and I had... More

I don't know when this hotel was built but it has definitely got a retro vibe and there are pluses and minuses. I'll probably stay there again because of the location.
