Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Strategic hotel to book to watch the NYE fireworks. We stayed 2 nights in our room facing the Skytower. Staff was friendly. Check in was smooth and room was clean and tidy. We enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

Good facilities including breakfast and room. Nice bar and snacks. Nice staff. Need nicer milk in rooms that can pour properly. Car got broken into at carpark which wasn't pleasant. Need to advise of carpark height restrictions for better options

We spent a night at Rydges. The room was well maintained, and the bed provided a comfortable night's sleep. However, the breakfast experience was mediocre and didn't justify the price. Disappointingly, all the fresh fruits were depleted by 8:30 am, and we were informed that they had run out.

Pleasant staff at check in very helpful. Breakfast was good, and restaurant food up to standard. Check out was seamless. In between the room was comfortable and a good size. TV menu was a bit difficult to navigate. Location is excellent with the sky tower just round the corner and plenty of alternatives to eat and drink in.

Arrived after flying for 24 hours from the UK so very happy to be anywhere we could sleep! Unfortunately the safe in the room wasn't working, so was rather anxious about leaving valuables in the room whilst we were out for dinner. Was told that they didn't have any new batteries for it and couldn't change our room as they were full. Room was pleasant enough and it certainly did what we needed it to do but it's very much for a business traveller rather than someone looking for a highly quality hotel experience.

Booked and stayed here for two nights, and was not overly impressed. I attempted to resolve this issue prior to writing this review, however they do not reply to emails with complaints/questions it seems (now day 9) with no acknowledgement. During my stay, the issues were: Advised at check in I did not book the Bed and Breakfast deal, which I thought I had. I accepted that, as clearly I must have been incorrect. The King Superior suite was far from, the bed sheets didn’t even fit the bed. The most uncomfortable sleep, as the sheet at the foot end was too short and kept getting bunched up and kept getting in the way. I was woken at 0935hrs by housekeeping, between my two night stay. Not sure why this was, as the room service should have been done I the afternoon as per the advertisement in the room. Advised room service of the displeasure of both the sheets and the issue below (4) The amount of long black hair over the bathroom wall, from the basin, over the interior wall above door), looked like it had not been cleaned from previous person. I checked the amount I paid for accommodation, and confirmed via the website I did in fact pay the amount needed for the bed and breakfast deal, so I called reception to ask, and was advised yes I did book this, so entitled to the breakfast. Breakfast after the first night stay did not occur given the advice I was told, so I went out to the CBD and purchased some. The last morning on check out I did.

This was our second visit to Rydges, and will be our last. We paid for three nights up front, and on check-in, were asked to put $300 credit on our room and begrudgingly paid $100. We bought two drinks at happy hour to be told we couldn’t charge them to our room as we had no credit!!!! The next morning we went down to breakfast to be told we could not have breakfast, as again, no credit!!!! I went to reception who advised that there was $74 credit on our room. When i asked why I had been charged $24 for two happy hour drinks, I was advised that I went to the bar after happy hour (18:30) when in fact, we were there at 17:50!! Regarding breakfast; it was cold and very disappointing. My husband took his plate to the restaurant staff member and informed her that it was cold. Regarding our room, our knees virtually touched the shower screen while on the toilet, and the shower screen was broken, resulting in me cutting my knee (photographic evidence) and we were moved to another room. When informing staff member about shower door and cold breakfast; he told us he would refund the breakfast. Checking out this evening, the drinks on our room bill were reduced to happy hour price, but the breakfast was not removed. The staff member said he would look into this and call the room. The phone call consisted of him having looked at the cameras and the fact it took my husband ten minutes to complain about the cold breakfast. I’m done here. P@@S POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
