Stayed here for two nights and certainly look forward to coming back. Our room (#207) was very large with a comfortable king bed and spacious bathroom. Window view was of concrete roof-top with water-views in background, still pleasant to look at if relaxing in the room.

This trip was for business. I love the express checkin, especially when I walk up and there is a line of people waiting. I gave them my name, my ID and my keys are good to go. It was seamless and the guy checking me in was super professional and friendly. As a bonus they upgraded me to a balcony... More

The hotel is great !! The staff were super helpful and friendly. They made sure they could accommodate any requests for our business group also. The restaurant has great food with either the buffet breaky option or the set cafe menu next door. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a wedding. Gorgeous location, Stayed on first floor. Had to unfortunately pay for parking which was a bit much considering the rooms are so pricey but bed was massive and really comfortable. Some bathroom amenities could be updated e.g. bath. And there is no ceiling light in the main Room, however bedside lamps light... More

Recently my son and his family stayed for a weekend, he has two year old twin boys, there was no microwave in the suite so therefore every time bottles were needed they had to take them down to the lobby to have them heated, even the mothers room at Settlement City has one in it.

Thank you for your recent feedback Julz6969. For many reasons such as space, microwaves are only included in the Apartments, not Hotel rooms. I am pleased to say since reviewing feedback such as yours we have purchased a small amount of microwaves that guests in Hotel rooms can hire on request while they are here. Thanks again for your feedback.... More

Well located, water views available. Handy to breakwall walk for a bit of early morning exercise. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping etc. All very handy to this hotel. Excellent bar downstairs and great place to have coffee and breakfast in the morning.

My family recently had a one night stay on our way north from Sydney. The hotel is located in a really nice spot - right on the water with shops/restaurants within walking distance. We were only here for one night, but it seemed like it would have been nice for a few day visit.

Riverview room with small balcony, good bed. But some furnishings need upgrading. Good atmosphere in bar with live music and good choice of food and drinks. Unusual check in was not until 3pm, but check out at 11am.

We have just spent 4 nights at Rydges for a well earned break. The location on the river with a short walk to restaurants, shopping centre and many other shops was excellent. I currently have some mobility issues so being on the flat was great. The loveliest surprise was being upgraded to a balcony suite. Thank you. That made up... More
