“Rydges never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

A huge bed, oversized room with a corner spa big enough for 4 adults, my room overlooking the world famous Mt Panorama starting grid is what I've come to expect when staying at Rydges. To top it off, the downstairs bar served the latest offering from the James Squire Brewery, fifty Lashes.

Stayed June 2014, travelled on business

This is a big hotel with very longgggg hallways! While the rooms are a nice size and have the added bonus of a kitchenette in the family suites the overall cleanliness was somewhat disappointing and not typical of rydges accommodation. Linen was beautifully clean and the room well presented but shower floor tiles were grungy and the walls and doors in general very marked and grotty looking.
The room had an extra toilet room which was appreciated and the very large balcony looking over the race track made for a lovely spot to watch the sunset.
Breakfast was included in our rate and was very good but we must have chosen the busiest time of the morning to head down (8:30am) as there was a ten minute wait for a table. Very limited fresh fruit available and no pastries but otherwise a decent selection.
The reception is poor with only two staff members for a very large amount of guests made both arrival and departure a very slow process. Also beware the very narrow car parks!
Overall good value for money and the best available in this pretty town.

Room Tip: All have nice views as far as I could tell. Ask for something not too far from the lifts so you don...

Hi Princessy1 and thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. We have taken your comments on board regarding the cleanliness of the showers and have made them an extra focus for the team of late. Good to see you enjoyed your breakfast, I can only assume you encountered the busy Sunday rush which is often the peak time between 830-930am.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future.

Kind Regards,
Andrew

Just had two wonderful nights at this hotel situated on the edge of con rod straight at Mount Panorama Bathurst. I have noticed this hotel over the past few years whilst watching motor race events on TV. To me it didnt seem to be a real suitable place to view the track for the purpose of watching cars race. Although there were no events on the track at the time , the view from the balcony would be excellent for watching the race(if one can afford the high tariffs at that time ). back to the hotel ( leaving out the car racing benefits). We had a deluxe studio 1 bedroom which comes with a full kitchen and bench with stools, laundry room with an extra toilet, lounge area coffee table, a separate dining area with table and chairs, a king size bed and a huge bathroom with toilet, shower and a large spa bath. The rooms are nicely decorated with old car racing pictures mostly from the 1950's at the track. It looks like all rooms face the track with most on the angle we faced(west) and some around the corner slighly giving a better with back up conrod straight.Breakfast which was included over our two nights was typical breakfast, nothing exceptional,but nothing missing,cooking eggs to your particular needs was nice in addition to the normal menu.I will comment on the excellent restaurant called chicane separately

Room Tip: we were on 6th floor. to see race track activity, you need to be as high as possible especially to...

I'm not a race fan but was still pretty cool to wake up and see the Mt Panorama sign on the hill! The staff were friendly, the king bed was very comfy in the large, modern room. The in-room dining food was delicious and warm when it arrived!! A cot was provided free of charge and was made up with linen when we arrived, which is always appreciated. Only down-side of the hotel was the terrible wi-fi reception.

This hotel is right on and in the racecourse, a better place to stay if you want to catch the racing I think would be impossible to find. We arrived late in the evening and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, they even ensured that we were catered for in the restaurant even though the staff should have finished for the evening. The rooms are clean, a reasonable size and are fitted with a mini kitchen if you would like to consider self catering, great to keep the costs down if all you want is a view of the circuit from your room.

Room Tip: Any facing the track
