I have stayed in both the self-contained apartments across the road and at the main hotel on many different occasions through the last year and have always found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. They are always willing to help you with anything you may need and act swiftly to help. They were also extremely helpful with catering to my...

I have stayed at a few Rydges hotels and they are very mixed in quality. The room was okay but to get the aircon working I had to turn it off, take out the room key and then turn everything back on. There were old bottlecaps under the curtains near the window showing that the room hadn't really been thoroughly...

I stayed here over the Xmas - new yr break. The hotel is ok, a little bit of a throw back to the 1980s but the rooms have been semi refurbished and are ok. The issue was the hotel was almost empty and partially closed, signs and communications everywhere that there is no bar, restaurant, room service or even housekeeping...

I have stayed here a couple of times now for work and every time I've stayed I have eaten in the restaurant and the food has been amazing and good value for money. This time I had pasta and I could barely finish it. The rooms are a good size, I think the air conditioner is older than me but...

We stopped overnight at Rydges Gladstone on a recent road trip through the area. On arrival, we were greeted by Clive, the Manager, with a warm and friendly greeting. We had a room overlooking the pool and distant ocean views. The room itself has had a facelift and the amenities were in good condition. The room was clean and comfortable...

Stayed at Rydges for a night recently and found it to be conveniently located. Room was dated but comfortable. Air Conditioner was really old and not very effective. Bed was comfortable but furniture in the room was old and dirty. Carpet in the room and rest of the hotel was smelly, old and stained. The hotel needs updating urgently! Reception...

OK. good and bad. The bathroom is very old and tired, desperately needs an upgrade. Old air dryer mounted in the wall was broken, easy to fix and replace. Noisy old air con. Food is very average. The wifi is so bad it won't download a 30 second clip. I won't stay here again.

The apartment was in a great location in the middle of town and walking distance to all the restaurants and new water feature on the wharf. The room was clean, tidy, very comfortable and quiet. The staff were excellent and made us feel at home.
