We had a night at Rydges at the end of our recent holiday and would have loved to stay longer.. Lovely hotel and fantastic service.. Comfortable beds, modern bathroom even a coffee machine in the room. Top spot and close to Southbank! Will hopefully definitely be back

This hotel has recently undergone renovations and my room was beautifully appointed. In fact the whole stay was exceptional in every way - quality of staff, room, sleep quality, cleanliness, room service. I would have no hesitation in recommending or staying again.
