Great location
Great location. Close to tons of restaurants and only short walk to City
Michelle, au1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
My only issue is the practise of holding money back to cover incidentals. Often this is $100 plus and can be retained for ages. Worst case was 3 months. We never use anything in the room or wreck it.if you have the card details from room payment can you not get funds if required from that? Great hotel and staff, perfectly situated. Will stay again. Regards.

Loved it!
Loved Rydges. Beautiful quiet room, clean and modern. Lovely city view. Heaps of fabulous restaurants nearby. Close to the Theatre to see the Bolshoi Ballet. Lovely walk over footbridge to Botanical gardens and city.

Very good 8.0
OK good for position.
This hotel is Ok - it’s main feature is proximity to the south bank theatre complex, and that is the reason to stay there. Room service is OK - not much of a choice for vegetarian, or for someone that does not eat red meat. Breakfast to room OK - but someone needs to think about people who do not drink Coffee- tea drinkers, namely Earl Grey I suggest you bring your own. The tea bag at breakfast was the worst of that variety I have ever had. Has anyone heard of Twinings.
