We stayed for 2 nights to see the History of the World in 100 objects exhibition. The hotel was clean, comfortable and had lovely lobby and lounge areas. The breakfast was comprehensive and our room was spacious and well equipped. Staff were courteous and attentive.

Having previously stayed at Rydges Capital Hill on a few occasions, I looked forward to returning again. Unfortunately, the new room renovations at the hotel have taken away some of the room qualities. The large, double spa was a positive room facility; this has been replaced with a smaller, single bath. The shower space is quite small and the new,...

We stay for 1 night with 2 children .Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff. The best things is they have 2 double bed which is perfect for our family. Location is great. Reasonable rate. But limited free parking space. Luckily we found a spot on our day, otherwise need to pay for parking.

Although we were only in Canberra overnight,we enjoyed great comfort, a delicious dinner and breakfast and a trip to see the 100 Treasures of the British Museum at the National Museum as part of a package available through Rydges. It was truly a memorable whirlwind! Parking was also part of the deal. Everything was smooth sailing and delightful.

This hotel is one of the few places that has aged gracefully. It has been 20 years between visits and still high my list of best places to stay when I am visiting the ACT. Weather there for Sumer Nats car festival or for work to see clients it is an awesome place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff.

The room was very clean & very comfortable with all amenities provided for our stay. The staff at reception were courteous and helpful as well as the restaurant staff who went aunt of their way to provide the best dining experience. Footnote:just a tip though to remove cleaning bottles and cloths from the view of children and or patrons dining.

This is our favourite hotel in Canberra.....But......a room refurbishment has resulted in a bathroom with absolutely no storage cupboard, shelving or even a vanity top...just a pedestal unit. Likewise, room itself has no bedside units with drawer or cupboard, just a small table top on legs. No drawers in the wardrobe in fact not anywhere to put socks and undies...
