This hotel does not live up to the standard we have experienced in other Rydges hotels. Whilst the location is excellent - walking distance to the train station and cafes - there were some considerable let downs. - The rooms were noisy (both outside noise and noise from hallway and other guest rooms opening/closing) - The room had a large...

A 2 night stay for business, better than a previous hotel I stayed at before but still average. Would be better if the TV remote worked, even after new batteries it kept skipping channels as well as just not working! Quite hotel considering location and as stated, reasonably clean although I think housekeeping need to be introduced to "dusting"!!

This hotel is well placed for all activities and business dealings close to Central Station, from which it is only a brief walk. The rooms are of good size, and have good natural light. Unfortunately the swimming pool is undergoing refurbishment or some time, but the gym is still operating. The breakfast option provides a more than adequate range of... More

Great venue with very helpful staff. The catering especially the luncheon offered was very generous - the conference room was well organised with modern spaces and good equipment. Presentations went seamlessly.

The decor of the room was very stylish and the bed, so comfortable it was hard to get out of.

One block from Central Station makes this very handy to access trains to and from the airport. Food was great and it has ideal conference facilities. There were times when the wait for the lift was long. The rooms are tidy, spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was up to date with quality toiletries provided.I enjoyed the bathtub.

Stayed here with my partner while travelling. We enjoyed the room and the room service but experienced a few issues. We were informed that renovations were taking place at 9:00 am when we arrived and not prior. In the morning however, we were woken up by both renovation noise and the sounds of a vacuum in the hallways at 8:00... More

The hotel and reception staff were great. Very efficient. The room was clean and very comfortable. I did have one issue in the restaurant at breakfast, the staff were slow and not attentive to new diners arriving the hot food was only warm and the white bread I had was stale. Needless to say I only had the one breakfast... More

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
