My employment sees me travel extensively throughout the eastern states of Australia. I have stayed twice at this hotel over the last 2 weeks, The first time was a week after the opening of the hotel and again a fortnight later. What a refreshing surprise. The hotel is different..It is described as "urban industrial" architecture and on arrival I was struck by the design and decoration of the hotel and its rooms. There is plenty of concrete and yellow seems to be the signature colour. However the rooms are unbelievably functional and comfortable. The Rydges Dream Beds concept is truly that - the beds are a dream to sleep on. The rooms also feature a small kitchenette, work desk (free WiFi!) phone (free local calls!), great mini bar and modern well appointed bathroom.. The Roadhouse Bar & Grill offers great food, although the drinks in the bar are a little expensive. Having said said all this what really sets this hotel apart is its fantastic staff. The guys here are not only efficient and offer great service they are refreshingly friendly and helpful. On checking out of the hotel on my last stay I drove directly to the airport to travel home. It was there that my wife realised that she had left her jewellery in the hotel bathroom. I rang the hotel, and the gentleman I believe his name to be Sam) who answered the phone said he would personally go and check and ring me back. Five minutes later he called, confirming he had the jewellery and two days later I collected the items from the post office. I must say I was initially sceptical at staying at this property. As a Victorian I have heard nothing good about Sydney's western suburbs. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Great value, great staff and great accommodation.
