Stayed in a Deluxe Twin room with the Winter Breakfast package. First floor room overlooking the city. The room was spacious, beds comfortable, air con good and breakfast fantastic. Some of the décor was slightly older (not much) but it was all very clean and well maintained and staff were all quite friendly. The hotel is only a few kilometres... More

Spent seven nights at Rydges in the first week of August 2016 and was very happy to have done so. We stayed in (I think) Room 53 which was large and easily accessible, which was very handy as I have a bung knee and find stairs testing. Parking was free and plentiful, and with the Hotel only being a couple... More

We had another two night stay at Rydges - specifically for the football. We really enjoy the value for money, and the 2 bedroom units are quite spacious. The only negative would be the mattress on the fold-down bed - it's nowhere near as good a quality as the ones in the second room.

We stayed for two evenings, and used this as our more affordable accommodation before splurging at our next stop. The room was very large (two separate rooms), the bathroom was large and equipped with a small hairdryer and shower over bath. There was a small kitchenette stocked with a microwave and kettle. The room was very clean, and as well... More

Spacious rooms, but dated. Beds & pillows are quite soft. Cupboards are old as are the bathroom fittings. The hot water heater is in a cupboard in the room & is noisy when it goes off. If you like football (I do) it's great that it overlooks the Hobart Demons ground so I got to watch them train one night,... More

We were pleasantly surprised to stay here at rydges. The staff are fantastic, the room has everything we need and is fitted out so quaintly. Buffet breakfast is a must you will not be disappointed. Very close to the airport and Hobart city.

We stayed four nights in what is in effect a small suite, which included a small but well equipped kitchen. The décor is dated, however this added to the coziness of the well heated room. The hotel is about two kilometres from downtown and some distance away from the cafes and restaurants in North Hobart. There is plenty of free... More

Not the usual Rydge's experience. Rooms are old fashioned and very dark. That said, our room was a very generous size, warm and comfortable. Staff were lovely and helpful. Location was ok. Walking distance to local shops and cafes but good 40 min walk to the town center. Overall good value for money stay.

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The reception staff were friendly, efficient and helpful and the room was warm when we walked in (after losing our way in this delightful old building). There was plenty of space: we had a bedroom, a 2 way bathroom, kitchenette and tv room. Yes, the decor is outdated but it... More

Dear Janet, Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm thrilled to hear your stay was so pleasant and equally as glad you managed to find your way to your room in the end! Our dream beds and fantastic shower pressure do make for a great experience but thank you for acknowledging nonetheless. Warmest Regards, Grant Melville More
