First stay at Rydges melbourne having joined Rydges Priority.
Foyer was welcoming but once in the lift and the corridors, everything looked shabby.
How surprised were we when we opened the door to our Queen spa suite!. All very nice, must have been painted just some few years back.
On the other hand, the glass topped table in the lounge was never wiped (over 5 days ) and some talcum ? powder on a chair in the bedroom stayed there our entire trip.
This must have been a smoking room at sometime, because there were cigarette burns in the table top and the dining chairs.
A toilet brush in the bathroom would prevent some embarassing moments. They are reasonably cheap.
Meals were quite good although $10-00 for 6 "chips" was over the top.
Hope the dining area floor gets a clean sometime.
Would we stay there again--- might just try the other Rydges
