This place exceeded our expectations. We had a suite on the 6th floor with views overlooking the river. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located to the shops and restaurants downtown. Right outside the hotel is a path that will take you to the beach. The rates were reasonable when we were there. Overall a great... More

We needed to change our planned two night stay to just one, As we were completing our check-in we explained the change and our disappointment as it was our anniversary. It was as if... More

We have stayed at the Rydges twice this year and have enjoyed it on both occasions. The rooms are of a good standard and beds are very comfortable. Rooms at the front have an amazing view and worth asking for at check in where possible. Rain showers over the bath are quite strong and better than the average hotel facilities.... More

We have stayed here before and found Rydges to be a great spot overlooking the river and close to the shopping centre. Our room was spacious and clean and enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. We dined at the restaurant. Highly recommend . We found their priority card to be of great value. Many thanks.😊

Top place to stay, Many eateries in close proximity to motel. No need to use the car. Breakfast was delightful ( compliments to the chefs ) and being able to overlook the water is a bonus. Pick a deluxe balcony water views for great views overlooking the water.

I stayed again at this hotel just to give it a second chance. The rooms are always good but the people in the dinning room need to understand that the customer gets what they want not what the staff think. I ate this time in the bar and the food was good and the staff very helpful.
