The bed is very comfortable and sleeps really well! That is what I need most away from home. Never seen 6 different toiletries, Shampoo, Conditioner, Face Wash, Body Wash, Body Scrub, and Body Balm in a hotel room, what a treat!!! One improvement could be to have a noise barrier on the door, I could hear the room service, people walking and talking through the gaps under the door.

We had called the hotel to book a table for breakfast the next morning, and they’ve told us we could walk in the next morning and it would be fine. We arrived at about 8am, only one table was occupied. The attendant asked if we had a booking, to which we said ‘no’ and explained we had called. They then told us that unfortunately they couldn’t accommodate us because they were fully booked. Like, really? And why we were not told that on the phone the night before? What a shame, the Rydges. Hope you have enough guests to fill the dozens of empty tables and enough work for the 5 staff members that were doing nothing at the time we arrived.

Dear BrunaTardetti Thank you for taking the time to post the review. We would like to apologise for the miscommunication about the breakfast bookings on mother’s day. We encourage all our guests to make the booking for breakfast whether they are in house guests or locals. The reception team should have encouraged you to make the booking. We are sorry that the staff could not take your booking on the day as we had over 150 guests booked from 8.30am onwards. However, the staff should have offered other alternatives to seat you in our brasserie area. Please note that the team has been spoken to in regards to how to better manage similar situations and offering alternatives. As you can see from our previous reviews, this is not the norm for Rydges Latimer. We look forward to get another opportunity down the line to serve you at the restaurant. Regards, Abhishek Kurade Food & Beverage Manager

A welcoming atmosphere, in a great location. Staff are friendly and helpful. The bed and room were comfortabe and clean. The arm chairs look nice but are not very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was nice and there was plently to choose from. This is not our first visit to this hotel and we will be back again
