Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The Rydges is centrally located in The Rocks. It is within easy walking distance of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and restaurants and bars. While clean and well appointed I thought the room was a little dated. i was able to use my Dine and Discover voucher to pay for a buffet breakfast. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

The Rydges in centrally located in the rocks. From the rooftop it has expansive views of Sydney harbour. From my room I can clearly see the harbour bridge. The room is clean and well appointed. It is not particularly large but is comfortable enough for one person. Yea and coffee are provided. Tv offers all free to air Chanel’s and Foxtel. For the price this room is reasonable.
