This is a good hotel overall, but there is a feeling of it being aging. The room was spacious, the staff was generally cordial. No wifi in rooms, but the one in public areas worked fine. Should work towards free wifi in every room. The rooms are not very soundproof, could hear my neighbours talking. Breakfast was okay.

My experience was simply...fine. For a billed quality hotel, nothing really stood out, but nothing was overly bad. Great location for my overnight sight seeing trip, central to Parliament House, The Australian War Memorial and the city centre.Toiletries were good quality, bedding was nice, but even with recent refurbishment, the room still felt a little behind it's time. Staff were professional and helpful, but not overly so. For the price, felt a bit like a take it or leave it experience, nothing was overly memorable but nothing really to complain about.

I'll say this for Canberra straight off - the town doesn't seem to believe in interesting accommodation. Everything is chain hotels or a few very expensive B&Bs. It's in that context that we booked into Rydges to overnight in.

Having said that, we had only one minor issue as the room was quite small compared to modern hotels. However it had been refurbished very well, obviously with business travellers in mind but that transfers well for a modern family, and the convenient location gave us the opportunity to walk to dinner and the show we were seeing, and even only a 30 minutre walk across to the libraries and galleries if we felt so inclined (we weren't - so it was only a five minute drive instead).

So if you're looking for a place to stay in the centre of Canberra at a competitive rate, I'd definitely recommend having a look at Rydges.

This is a 4.5 star Hotel but after staying there the past few nights I would give it a 3.5star when you compare to other Hotels in Canberra. The rooms were modernised last year. They are still on the small side and clean and comfortable. The exterior of the building still looks tired.

The Room was spotless except for the blocked sink and the girl on Reception came up within 5 minutes white gloves at hand and unblocked for me. The water pressure in the bathroom and shower is shockingggggg. I hate it when the water saver shower is a trickle. The soap and shampoo is a high standard. However, the towels are basic small towels. Should be plush for a 4.5 star Hotel.

The staff on the other hand were excellent and extremely friendly which I could not fault. The Breakfast buffet was great and had a great selection. The Room Service was quick and of a high standard. Very Central location which was handy.

Bedroom was clean and tidy but I assumed there would be a hair dryer, but there wasn't. The hotel is appointed nicely and it is a short 10mjn walk to the city. Had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and the meal was lovely, the wait staff were attentive. This was not my experience the next evening at the bar though. I was ignored by both bartenders even though I politely asked for a drink twice and was standing in front of them with no other people at the bar. It wasn't until my colleague came to the bar and the bartender still served her first. I don't think I'd stay here again.
