Too expensive for its location. 3 star hotel not 4 star. Needs a much needed upgrade.

It is Ok

Pros: It was a motel.You would expect some more from Rydges.
Cons: That has been stated in my review.
Location: It was a good location for me. As we only stayed one night I am not the one to ask about activities.
It would be nice if you could get a meal there on Sunday night instead of having to go out. It is ok for one night as it was close for me to see a doctor the next morning. The parking and the hotel of which was a bit steep especially if you come from the Country. It cost $25 per day even if you park outside. That is the one thing the staff did not tell us about we had to ask. Underneath well what can I say if you had a land cruiser forget it It is tooooooo tight. You really need a small car. We had an XTrail and that was pushing it. Ches

Thank you for your review Ches. I am pleased to see our location was convenient for the purpose of your visit and also to advise we are about to begin renovations on all of our guest rooms and look forward to this being completed in the coming months. We do try to keep our parking prices reasonable and do regular checks within our local area to ensure our parking price is not exceeding other businesses.

Really run down

1 out of 5
by from Newcastle, NSW
Posted Dec 4, 2016
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: The general of everything in the hotel.
Location: Close to RPA and Sydney Uni.
The whole hotel is so run down that I'm amazed that they feel they can charge over $200 a night, I've stayed in youth hostels in better condition. You can't tell if something is dirty or just in need of replacing. The toilet seat was broken, the furniture is mismatched and stained, there were dusty cobwebs on the ceiling, the lifts don't line up with the floor when the door opens. The list goes on. I was booked to stay another 3 nights next week week but cancelled that within minutes of entering my room.

Room needs renovation - soft foam mattresses and cleaning is basic. Heard the clanking noise of the lift all night. This hotel is overpriced for what it offers (barely 3 stars). Location is good..

Overall it was good, nothing fancy and we did have a great view from the 7th floor! They forgot to stock our mini bar but they were happy to accommodate if we wanted it filled.

Communication breakdown

1 out of 5
by from western australia
Posted Jul 8, 2016
Pros: Staff friendly
Cons: the whole place needs refurbishment
Location: close to bus and university and hospital
initially they put me in a disabled room which smelt of mould !!I asked for another room but none were available that night, so slept with the window open. How they got my request for "A room with a view as it is my first time in Sydney" to requiring a disabled room is anyones guess !! The hotel is shabby and in need of refurbishment. You think having to breath in mould they would have given me a room with a view, but no such luck even after my request being highlighted. Then when I went into the new room there was broken glass just where you put your feet in the toilet. They apologised but it could have been worse.

Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed to read your stay was not as enjoyable as we would have hoped. I have followed up the room issues you have addressed with our Executive Housekeeper to ensure these are resolved as quickly as possible. I do apologise we were not able to fill your request for a room with a view, these rooms were sold out and as such we were unable to offer you a complimentary upgrade. I am pleased to advise we are in the beginning stages of renovating all of our guest rooms and look forward to this being completed in the next 12 months.

The room was spacious and comfortable. However, the air conditioning only blew out hot air instead of cold. The bathroom also needs some work, although, OK there is paint chipping and the tiles have seen better days.

Hi Amber. Thanks for your review of your stay with us. Unfortunately we are on a central air conditioning system and can only set it to cooling for the entire hotel or heating for the entire hotel. As we are in winter it is currently set to heating, however our reception team are able to provide a fan to your room to help your stay be more comfortable. I am pleased to advise we are beginning the process of renovations for all of our guest rooms; this will include new bathrooms for all rooms, and look forward to this being completed in the next 12 months. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to our hotel again in the near future.
