My experience is of a university prize-giving ceremony at the function centre/ballroom at the Rydges complex. We found the venue spacious but very plain and utilitarian in terms of design. Service of drinks was competent. Outdoor parking was congested and arrangements for paying for parking before exiting were unclear.
