We paid $298 for a race day package that included members entry into the races, a nights accomodation, full buffet breakfast, a free drink and discounts. We were a priority guest member - you can join on the rydges website and it is free to join. You get discounts on accomodation and packages etc.
The staff were very friendly. We checked in early and our room was not ready so the staff changed our room to one that was ready. They organised a port-a-cot for the bub too. We came back from the races and there was good security at the entry so as not to let all the race crowd strays in. Rydges catered for everyone - those that still wanted to drink and be entertained in the bars to those that just wanted to dine and rest.
We had a beautiful smorgasboard dinner for about $38 that included seafood and the chef cooking your meat or fish to your liking. Desert was yummy too. Breakfast buffet was just as yummy with a large variety. The staff were prompt and friendly.
As it was race day the security worked with Police to ensure everyone enjoyed the premises and did not get too drunk or rowdy. Hence the place remained family friendly. I would say that most of the crowd was 30 and over and families were present as well. I saw one man about 50 that had a little too much to drink. The staff and security sat him down, gave him water and made sure he was ok and then arranged for him to go home. It was nice to see this responsible and friendly behaviour.
The rooms were pleasant and beds very comfy.
Rydges is just across the road from the races making it a great location for a race day / night out. Its also conveniently located near Homebush and Parramatta CBD.
My husband;s parents and some of our friends took up the race day package as well and loved it.
We are definately planning another family race day package with Rydges again soon.
