    Rydges is in a great position in the Rocks area. The room was quiet at night. A good size room and very comfortable bed. Some signs of mould on the grout in the shower but otherwise very clean. Lovely fluffy towels. Would be happy to stay again.

    Very dated and substandard facilities. Shocked by the size of the bathroom. I was misled by the high rating this hotel has been given by others. Did not live up to my expectations. Staff seem inexperienced as well. Never staying here again. Poor experience overall inexperienced as well.

    Everyone we had contact with was very nice and helpful. The facility was clean and well maintained. The room was quiet and cozy. It is within walking distance of everything you would want to see around the harbour. Roof/pool views were excellent for pictures of the harbour and surrounding city.

    Be aware that if you arrive during a weekend and intend to drive to this property all roads around the hotel are blocked off for markets and restaurants. I spent an extremely distressing hour trying to find a way through. I rang the hotel twice for help. Once with no one picking up and the second time given incorrect instructions to go the wrong way up blocked George Street. My daughter with ASD was with me and became very distressed. I had to park up and settle her before we could try again. Finally a traffic cop helped me with the one and only correct route back around and going under the bridge at the waters edge. A total nightmare that could be easily avoided by the hotel sending guests arriving at weekends a map with the one route available for cars.

    Comfy bed, great location in the Rocks, breakfast buffet worthwhile (good value if prebook). Rooms small and looking tired. Only 2 lifts, 1 of which was out of order.
