Not up to Rydges standard
This hotel is definitely not up the standard that Rydges holds itself out as. Looks like and old converted motel with a Roof across the top. Rooms in poor condition overall. Bathrooms verging on what I would expect in a 2 star motel in an outback town. I am not usually fussy but this is very poor. Urgent need of an upgrade. However, staff very efficient and helpful.

Great location
Great location, hotel quite good, a little tired.in place. I think breakfast could easier if you just want toast and not have to pay $25 for continental

6/10 Good

No harbour view
Be careful upgrading to “harbour view” if disease riddled cruise ships are in town, as you will be blocked from viewing much of the harbour and certainly will not see the Opera House. Better off just paying for a regular room. No complaints about facilities or location otherwise.

Rydges was smack dab in the midst of all The Rocks has to offer! We were able to walk to our hotel from our cruise ship, walk to the Opera House, ferries and Botanical Gardens, major shopping areas, and many bars and restaurants. The hotel staff was very helpful and we had the option of a $10 credit for each day we declined room cleaning, It was a brilliant way to encourage going green!

Great location
Although we were unlucky with the weather, the hotel has a great location on the first street in Australia. Particularly enjoyed the rooftop pool with views of the Bridge and Opera House
