The taxi driver was a little reserved about this hotel as it is old. But, I was not backing down. The reception area was large, clean and well presented. Once in the room, all the mod cons are here. Flat screen TV, batch, shower, free internet, sufficient power points and clean carpet. There are no bad aromas, and I feel... More

The room was a good size. Bathroom was older but good water pressure. Balcony only wide enough to stand on and two cigarette butts were left there. Air-conditioning in room is very noisy. Note on room desk that room is not serviced on the weekend, nor are restaurants open. Café next door where breakfast can be charged back does not... More

Stayed in a room with water views, quite nice room. The room had recently been renovated although no new bathroom renos, very outdated. Rooms were clean and bed and linen absolutely lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good central location! Only bad thing was very noisy aircon when running. Would stay again.

We usually stay at the apartments and did this time and they are of reasonable standard and comfort. It was nice to get the drink vouchers but we did not get to eat at the restaurant because it was closed on Sat night.

I am a repeat visitor to Gladstone Rydges and use it as my home away from home when travelling around central QLD. The rooms, service food are all excellent and now that the coffee machine has been fixed - get a pretty good coffee each morning too!
