After trialling a few different hotels in Canberra, the last trip cemented this as my preferred accommodation. It's a decision made on a combination of price, location and the staff - they could not be more friendly.

Stayed here for work for 1 night. The location is fantastic and the hotel looks great from the outside. Staff were great at reception and the bar, couldn't fault the staff at all. I was put in a wheelchair access room (as was my colleague). Obviously I have no problem with wheelchair access rooms, every hotel should have them. Only...

Booked this hotel as part of a birthday present for my partner and chose Rydges because of my Rydges membership to maintain loyalty. Checked in with no dramas, only to be given a room on the ground floor that was as dark as the night, walk in and open the curtain, only to see people sitting right outside our window...

Just spent three nights at Rydges Capitol Hill. Staff were Professional, but very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The breakfast meal was also of a very high standard, and enjoyable. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean neat and tidy. What more can you ask for. Well, I guess it could be that the bed linen not have repair stitching...

I stayed at the Rydges Capital Hill for 5 nights. The rooms are spacious and very clean, and the staff are friendly and attentive. The location is also great as it's a short work from the Manuka shops.

  • A bit cramped. Why two basins which takes toilet and shower space?
  • Shower is large but no door means toilet and floor get wet
