This hotel is in a brilliant location, close to the Canberra sights and just a 5 minute drive to the trendy restaurants in Manuka and Kingston. It was our 2nd stay here and we will choose to stay at the Rydges Capital Hill again.
For a family the room rate represents good value, as the rooms are huge and can therefore accommodate 4 people very easily.
On this occasion we stayed in a Superior Queen room with our daughter and were amazed at the size of the room, even with 2 adults and 1 child and the sofa bed fully extended.
The design of the hotel is lovely, with lots of natural light flooding in through large windows and the central atrium. I agree that the hotel needs a some refitting and refurbishment to freshen it up, but the building itself is lovely.
Our room was spotlessly clean, the staff courteous and attentive.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful and included something for everyone in the bain maries which were constantly being replenished.
The swimming and gym facilities are small but adequate.
My only complaint is with regard to the $12 parking fee which you are "forced" into because of insufficient available parking in the Hotel's driveway.
Despite this, we intend to stay at Rydges Capital Hill when we next visit Canberra.
