The Hotel amenities were fabulous. The room was great. The breakfast was amazing! Usual stuff to eat for brekkie, but the presentation was fantastic, like mini servings of buircher meisli and tiny glass bottles of juices with straws... loved it. There were areas to get a drink, areas for kids to play in the pool area while the grown ups...

Stayed at the Rydges for a conference held at the Convention Centre. The location was great - both the direct access to the convention centre and being so central in South Bank and easy to get to the city/train station. However, for the price of the room I felt disappointed in the room. Superficially it looked nice when we walked...

Very well appointed room for one or couple even families for that matter, a room with a view is nice to see out across to Highgate Hill. It is very convenient to see the features of Southbank and a safe feel when walking around. Delightfully modern in concept. Room service meal was pleasant and efficient in delivery

Rydges hotel is situated at a very beautiful spot. Which is only a few minutes walk to the Southbank eating precinct ,the famous man made beach, and market. But is a little far from the business centre. We enjoy our stay thoroughly. And would stay again.

I stayed earlier this week at the Rydges on a business trip. What a lovely surprise: this is a bright beautifully decorated hotel with great staff in a great location. It looks as though it may have been recently refurbished: There is a wonderful feeling of opulent comfort with a beautiful color scheme, light-wood touches throughout, extremely comfortable enveloping bed...
