“This was surprisingly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I turned up in Bathurst on a business trip and did my usual "just find a place to stay" . . now, last time I did that it went horribly wrong, so I asked a local. They said "didnt you know there was a Rydges here"?

The price was great, lower price at $160 than many hotels, and the hotel is incredibly new and good . . the rooms are MASSIVE, Im sitting in a room with it's own lounge area, kitchen, oven and king size room . . and very large spa bath that could fit 3 . . (though it is just me).

Will definetely stay here again

Room Tip: Go the deluxe upgrade, get a rydges card. Rock on

Convinced my wife that it would be fun to drive from Sydney for a weekend in and around Bathurst. We usually go to the Hunter Valley or Central Coast for weekend getaways, but thought something different would be nice. I've been to the great race quite a few times and always interested to see what the Rydges would be like. We were certainly not disapointed. the staff were friendly. Our spa room was great. Nice outlook (that was my wife's words) + it was cool being at the track. The Chicane restaurant was a really nice surprise. The food was excellent. Service was a bit hit and miss though with quite a few staff obviously back-packers. But they were interesting to talk to - no big deal..

I have stayed here a few times. Service is always fine - no issues.
Rooms are nicely appointed, clean and generally quiet. Comfortable bed although the two single mattresses pushed together to make a king size bed is slightly disappointing.

A small gym and pool are handy.

Breakfast is mediocre - if you are not in a hurry in the morning I would recommend having breakfast at one of the cafes in town instead.

Room Tip: Be careful with the lowest floor - pets are allowed on this floor and the dogs can be noisy. Sign u...

We booked two rooms on Saturday 19th January and we were looked after as though we were the only people staying at this hotel on this date, of course there were many staying there. The hotel was very clean, staff very helpful, room lovely and the restaurant food and staff were brilliant. They served and waited on us with the old fashion country friendliness but also very professional manner. Everyone normally finds at least one wrong with a hotel but I am hard pressed to even find that. This hotel is easily the best hotel in Bathurst bar none. This review is genuine and is from the Curtis group that stayed here.

Room Tip: They all face the race circuit so I would think they would all be as good as each other.

I have stayed at this hotel mainly for business however this stay I took my family with me. As always nothing is too much trouble here. The stay was great value when booked as a school holiday package. The priority rewards program is great, free welcome drink and my kids got an extra swim in the pool with late checkout. The Chicane bar is worth having a drink in. My kids spilt a drink and it was cleaned and replaced instantly without charge...in a sensible paper cup this time! lol! My only criticism is that the pool area was a bit neglected. The pool needed a clean, the water feature was turned off and the spa was covered over and from my prior visits has been for awhile. A sign alerting people to the spa being broken may help as we watched several people try to lift the "cover" which looks nailed down and permanent! I mainly stay in a studio but this time we were in a deluxe spa. My kids loved the spa and the room was spacious. The studio's are good as well and the views in all are equally as good! I will definitely be bringing the family back to this hotel! Thanks so much for a relaxing time.

Hi happyforeverafter, thanks for the great review. Its great to hear you were able to bring your family to the hotel and they had a great time.

Thanks for the feedback about the pool area, the spa has had a consistent problem for a while which multiple service companies have not been able to fix, but I am happy to report we are very close to having this fixed for good.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel.

Kind Regards,

Stayed here 1 night late november with hubby and 2 kids. with our rydges membership got a great rate. I also appreciated the fact that the hotel didn't try to charge us an extra "per person" rate for having 2 kids which I found a lot of hotels in the area wanted to do. We were very impressed with the room which was very tastefully decorated, clean and well laid out. had a pretty well equipped mini kitchen with plates/cups/cutlery/microwave/toaster/fridge etc. This is great when you have 2 little kids. the couch folded out to accomodate the kids. Our room looked right over the race track and had a awesome shared patio. the hotel didn't seem to busy so we had the whole patio to ourselves. Again it was great and gave the kids some room to run around outside. Definately drive the race track. it was a lot of fun. just down a bit is the racing museum which we didn't have time to make it to but there is also a kids playground in front. since we were there only 1 night didn't get a chance to check out facilitaties but it all looked really nice and well kept. The hotel is not in city center but still close. an easy 5-10mins by car and you are there. Recommend the church bar for dinner and or drinks. Very comfy place -we were on our way to Dubbo and wished we could take the hotel with us.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a Deluxe studio room. We got a package with buffet breakfast which the kids loved. It was a great view of the race track. Reception were polite & friendly while checking in, then when we required more pillows & towels, they were straight on it & it was not a problem. The kids loved the pool & the spa in the room.
Room was clean & made up every day with fresh towels & it was nice that they even did the washing up for us.
This was the first Rydges we have stayed at that has actually lived up to the Rydges name.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Just perfect.
