            My room was well serviced, clean and quiet. Bed and pillows were excellent. In house restraunt is also excellent.

            The decor in the rooms is out-of-date by about 30 years and is looking tired in places. It's time to redecorate!

            location

            decor needs updating, television had bad reception, toilet leaked.charged $109 for first night and $229 for second night, not worth $229.00 for one night,

            Location and general comfort.

            Would have liked a bath, shower wasn't very good and kitchenette crawling with ants. Stay was still enjoyable.

            Situation

            Noise from Palmer St, particularly on Friday night. We would request a rear room next visit.

            I won't go back or recommend because of the credit card surcharge.

            general air conditioning and no individual room controls - found the a/c too cold

            No balconies! I've never stayed at a hotel without a balcony. Also view from the room was disappointing after the description from the website. We stayed in an executive room, but as we were only on the second floor, views of the marina etc that was advertised to come with an executive room, was hardly there. The only reason I chose to book an executive room was to get a room with what sounded like a lovely view, but was let down.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            The bed and pillows was very comfortable. Good location

            There were only 2 coffee cups. What about a tea cup and a plate if we wanted a cake with tea?? Very dated and fridge was very small and on the floor. Tv picture was poor when on the Pay tv channels. Other than that was ok

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Bed was very comfortable; shower was dated but good to use; comfortable chairs, reasoanble outlook

            Loose tap handle that literally fell off; tv reception very poor; 3 times was unable to get reception on the phone so had to go down

          • Single
            5.4

            Hidden costs were the most annoying thing here. I asked specifically if internet was included in the price of the room. I was told yes, but on check out they stated that, that was not the case and I received a 21.00 dollar a day charge added plus another $7.50 for each additional device used. I don't mind paying for internet if I know ahead of time but this felt like a bait and switch. I will not be staying at any Rydges Hotels again if I can help it.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Excellent location and a good view from our room.

            At the time of our stay, the hotel was still undergoing renovations, so the corridors were a bit of a mess. The room itself was OK, but didn't represent good value for money. Very tiny bathroom with shower taps that squealed when turned on.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            We were not informed that the rooms were being renovated when we booked. We had to endure noise early in the A.M., loss of hot water and other inconveniences and during our stay as the workmen went about their duties.
