we booked our accommodation through the whatif site and it was a mystery booking, thank goodness it was Rydges (it used to be the Holiday Inn)We've stayed here about 4 times and every time has been great, some niggly bits but overall lovely. The rooms are tidy and clean and look nice. Great bathroom, not always a great view, this time we were looking at the post office building. Nice offices!!! Bought a bottle of wine to our room and there was no corkscrew, when hubby went down they tried to tell him there was one, nope there wasn't. It took a while for them to find one but it arrived at the door evenyually. Had a late check out time, a bit awkward coz we went for a walk after breakfast and were locked out of our room. Had to pop down and get another key so we could get our bags out of the room! We got 2 for 1 on breakfast and that was super, lots of choice and all well cooked, a bit crowded, we might have decided to come down to breakfast at the same time as everyone else. All together a lovely stay in a consistently good hotel.
