We stayed for two nights over a weekend, Saturday and Sunday nights. The room was clean, roomy, well presented, with a good harbour view looking out towards the heads - but not of the city or bridge or opera house if that is what you want. Check in took a while but the staff were very helpful and welcoming. The...

I stayed overnight at Rydges North Sydney in September. Although it is a large 11 storey hotel in busy North Sydney, it has a restful feel to it as it is set on a large terraced garden area. For a fee of $25 Rydges offers underground parking at the hotel. I took this option because parking is at a premium...

Over the past 3years we have stayed at Rydges North Sydney. We keep returning as it is consistently comfortable & satisfying. The views over North Sydney Oval, Parks and the harbour are very relaxing. We noticed this stay that the Chef has varied the menu somewhat. The new French cast Iron implements really keep the food piping hot for Breakfast....

Vanilla experience. Nothing special to note. No gym to work out in (they have vouchers to one nearby). Location was good - very close to North Sydney CBD. This was offset by flickering bedside light and running toilet cistern (reported both). Bed was comfy and staff friendly.

We stayed here as we had to attend something at the hotel the following morning. The rooms were priced accordingly and well furnished. The rooms were quite hot and it seemed the aircon didn't work at all. We had 3 rooms in our family and everyone mentioned they felt quite hot. Our fridge was broken which wasn't good as we...

This is our second stay here & we had very similar experience both times. We had a nice view of the harbour, not that we had much time to look at it due to our busy schedules. The beds are comfortable. I’m very much a princess & the pea girl due to a bad back injury so I’m very cautious...

Whenever we head to Sydney for a weekend or overnight stay this is our hotel of choice. Friendly, comfortable and a great location. A short walk to North Sydney station and very reasonably priced. We arrived at 11am to drop off our luggage and our room was already available.
