We had the round room and it was brilliant! Reception were lovely, very helpful. Room was clean and really funky. Mavis Brown's bar downstairs was a definite highlight! Bartender was awesome!! Location was great and everything about this place hit the spot. Wonderful couple of nights.

We booked a room for 3 adults (sisters), we got one king bed and a roll away bed crammed into a standard room, one towel each, two of everything else, no mini bar in the room. for the price we paid for 2 night I was really expecting a little more. Especially when it was said to be a BIG... More

19th - 21st August 2016 Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a package. Parking is available underneath with a cost, public transport is just out your front door. The staff were friendly and attentive. The hotel also has a 24/7 reception desk as well as a restaurant. While the rooms are very open, they are pretty small but... More

Always love the dream beds at Rydges, guarantees a great night's sleep! I was in 311 which faced Fitzroy St which was a little noisy but once asleep didnt impact at all. The staff were extremely friendly.

We stayed for A Friday and Saturday night in July and had a lovely stay. Staff are helpful, breakfast at the cafe in the hotel was nice. Nada, the bar tender at the lobby bar made the best espresso martini and helped us out with restaurant and tram information. The rooms are nice. There is a spabath in the bathroom,... More

Thanks for a great review of the hotel and of your St Kilda experience. St Kilda is a great spot for a weekend away, even in Winter, and it sounds like you made the most of it. Great to hear you sampled one of Nader's Espresso Martini's, they certainly are delish! We'll let him know! Cheers, Rob. More

We really enjoyed our stay at Rydges St Kilda. The room was clean and well equipped. The staff were friendly and very helpful. It was a short walk to Acland Street for restaurants, Luna Park and great pubs with live music. Highly recommend and would stay again :-)

Stayed here 3 nights, the in room spa didn't work and was the main reason i chose this hotel, good location although the street was a little dead. No room service and could do with a little decor update

Thanks for your review Kaycie. Its disappointing that spa did not work during your stay but it has been rectified now, whilst it won't change your experience it will certainly improve the next guests stay so thank you for letting us know. We're working on a menu and room refresh as I type this! There are some exciting new developments... More

Nothing good to say - other than the bar tender was nice and friendly. Rooms are ugly, service terrible, housekeeping is shocking. Do not recommend, has put me off Rydge hotels for the future. I should have realised disaster loomed when making the booking as reception staff put me on hold four times because, they sayd, they were short staffed.

Thanks for your feedback. Its disappointing to hear the hotel was not to your liking and more so that service failed to meet your expectation. We'd appreciate a little more information so we could follow up with our team. If you could contact the Front Office Manager directly we'd be more than happy to discuss your stay. Regards, Rob.

Spent four nights here and on most counts the hotel measured up well. The room was of a good size, nicely decorated and with a comfy queen-size bed. The bathroom was fine, not huge, but large enough. Free wifi with a nice strong signal and a full-size ironing board - more pluses. However, there were a few irritants to detract... More

Thanks for your review. We're glad there were some solid pluses and we're sorry to hear about the minuses. Looks like a couple of maintenance issues have impacted your stay. Its disappointing we didn't get to them before you did. We do track our maintenance works and the TV and water items have not popped up for this particular room.... More
