My partner and I regularly stay at Rydges when we can get a good deal ($130.00 incl parking or under) and this time we were given a room in the new tower.
The room was nice although the bed wasn't one of their dream beds which was a bit disappointing as those beds are fantastic. The new bathroom was great with a fantastic shower - the option of having the rain shower or the wall shower is a nice touch. The only thing I felt would have made this better is a door on the shower as the water went everywhere. This room seemed to be smaller than the 'old' rooms although there is good storage for luggage.
The only real downside to our stay was getting our car after we had checked out. We called prior to check out to order this and when we were checking out, one of the staff came back with our keys saying she couldn't drive the car as it was a manual. That was fine as I assumed she had given the keys to the other staff member getting the cars but after waiting for 20 minutes and seeing lots of other cars being brought round, we asked the other staff member who found our keys had been placed back in the cupboard with no note that the car had been requested.
Other than this small glitch we had an enjoyable stay and will definitely be back although might request an 'old' room with the dream bed rather than a new one.
