The very nice property located in north Sydney. Check-in was seamless and the front office staff is very pleasant and helpful. The room is nice with coffee tea facilities in the room. The bed is a little on the smaller side for tall people however is quite soft and comfortable. The breakfast spread is decent and caters to a wide... More

Stayed for four nights on a business trip to the Sydney head office. Service at the front desk was friendly, fast and efficient with checking in. The room was quite dated especially with the bathroom and the aircon was pretty noisy. Also, the sealing on the balcony doors was peeling off so you get some traffic noise seeping through. However,... More

Well, people are saying the hotel needs renovation. It does! From the outside hotel looks like it burned many years ago. Inside, not really better. I am frequent traveller and I thought I saw almost everything, but some things at this hotel are really rediculous. If you take a look on chairs, all chairs, in breakfast area you gonna be... More

I've stayed at the Rydges a few times for business trips to North Sydney, the hotel rooms are OK, decent bed but the fixtures, especially the bathroom are getting dated.

Staying in many hotels for work, my needs are quite simple. Although my requirements are straightforward... Efficient and effective. The accommodation is appropriate and sufficient Dining offers a tasty alternative to walking the streets, however, after waiting 45 minutes for a starter when there are 6 people in a restaurant is extreme to say the least. Sadly, there was not... More

It is the start what leads the overall experience ... and this was no good. Unfriendly and unprofessional front desk staff, with the exception of the check out lady on the 18th. Bed was good, so it was the shower. Cleanliness just in the limit of the acceptable, specially in common areas. Breakfast was just edible. All this said after... More

In general, there are not many options for hotel stays in North Sydney, which is surprising considering the number of businesses and corporations in this area. I have stayed at this property on a few occasions. The lobby, bar and restaurant have been refurbished in a modern, updated style. The breakfast is quite good, but the coffee that is included...

Stayed here before which was not all that great, but decided to return. Checking in was normal. Open room door and the room was not far under 30 degrees (Mrs said it's cooler in the hallway). There was a portable A/C machine in the lounge room so I crank it up. We decided to go out for dinner and asked... More

Comfortable clean and modern hotel, great room service menu, staff very attentive and friendly. Lifts were under construction for refurbishment but that is a minor thing, am sure only temporary and didn't delay movement much
