“Great service and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Having tried many venues in Hobart, we decided to try Rydges for an overnight stay, having seen their ad on local TV with a great deal for accommodation and breakfast. The service was excellent, we received an upgrade and enjoyed a well cooked and very enjoyable breakfast. Location is very convenient, with plenty of parking and in a quiet location. Lovely old building with interesting history. Short drive to North Hobart restaurant area. Would return and also recommend to others, we felt cared about and appreciated as staff were wonderful.

This well positioned,solid and quiet place is so close to a very attractive strip shopping area. We were thrilled to find such a variety of eating/coffee places and a cinema which had such great films showing. Made our stay so complete.

I go down to Tassie each year to watch my son play basketball. This year I chose to stay at Rydges in Hobart and was absolutely delighted with the staff, the room, the location and the food.
The period features of the hotel are just wonderful. Parking is superb.
I will definitely be staying here again!

We had a short 3 day stay after I retired as a nice quiet break, the hotel was very good for its rating, the food was excellent and well priced, it was a little way out of town but that was no problem as I had a hire car and there was plenty of off street parking.

The rooms were good and clean.

As a Rydges Priority card holder there was 20% of the total restaurant bill, and as a Rydges senior card holder there was free breakfast.

Room Tip: Most rooms were good, we stayed of the main wing close to the main road but there was no noise

We were very pleased with this hotel. We stayed for one night and got breakfast in the morning. The rooms were spacious and clean. For this price, this is a bargain. Bathroom needed a little cleaning esp dust but no major worry. Would definitely stay there again and again with my family of five. Absolutely no complaints at all

We booked a mystery deal through Wotif and for $89 including parking, we found we couldn't really complain about the value for money. However if I had paid full price I would've been disappointed, especially considering other options available in Hobart on a similar price scale. We were "upgraded" to an antique suite in the main building and the condition of our suite made us wonder what the non-upgraded version would've been like. As other reviewers have pointed out, the curtains were torn and difficult to close. The decor is is also a lot darker and more tired out looking than the photos on the website would suggest. The bathroom is similarly dated, with broken tiles and old-fashioned shower curtain. As a place to rest our head for the night (and given we really only slept in the room and then left early the next morning), it was fine, and I'd just suggest to any future patrons to be aware of what you're getting when making a booking.
