We stayed for three nights and room was ok but decor outdated with so much wood. We booked a twin single beds room and discovered a pull down double bed in the lounge room, disguised as wall unit with a mirror. Great bath, plenty of hot water however hot water system was noisy while heating up. Gardens were beautiful overlooking...

We stayed for 4 nights, the rooms are a little dated, but they are clean and well serviced. Our room was quite large with separate lounge area and small kitchenette with microwave and mini bar. The bed was very comfortable. Our package included breakfast which was brilliant, the food was excellent. Not an ideal location if you don't have a...

My mum and I stayed at Rydges for five nights and cannot fault it! Our room was far bigger than we were expecting, including a mini kitchen, a separate sitting area and a huge bathroom. The room was very clean, older style furnishings but all neat and tidy. A full breakfast was included in our rate which was amazing -...

This place in North Hobart is a little out of the way (20~25 minute walk to down town) but if you have a car that will be no issue. As multiple other reviews have mentions, the building is old and in need of a refurbishment, but it is clean, the water is hot and they have the most amazing beds....

Unfortunately I am unable to provide any positive feedback regarding my stay at Rydges Hotel Hobart. Upon arriving in our room, we found an empty McDonalds drink container and food wrappers, suggesting that the room had not been cleaned since the last guests left and prior to our arrival. Furthermore, the bathroom was so dirty that we wore thongs in...

Reviewed 10 January 2016

The hotel is set in lovely grounds, with the main hotel in an old manor and then the rooms in separate buildings. To my surprise it was more like a mini apartment with a nice big bed, separate lounge room, separate bathroom and kitchen facilities. Although a little worn out, it was clean and functional and the free wifi was...

The very spacious room was part of a heritage building with loads of charm. My room was lovely and comfortable. The only inconvenience was that the restaurant and room service were closed on a Sunday night. However, the hotel is close enough to the many restaurants on Elizabeth Street for it not to be too much of a problem. I...

Good spacious room equipped well..decor is a bit dated now and an upgrade would help, although there was nothing fundamentally wrong with the hotel. The pool was lovely and clean and great temp for a refreshing swim every day. It is x decent walk to the waterfront but it's less that $10 in a cab.
