Disappointing lack of facilities.
Disappointing stay. I chose Rydges for the facilities (pool and gym). I was unable to use them because you locked everything down due to an outbreak. This was overkill in my opinion and as such the hotel was overpriced because I was not able to use the facilities.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Aircon control did not work, so could not increase the heat Bed was not a king, was 2 singles pushed together, so wasn't very comfortable & kept splitting in the middle No kitchenette or sink, had to fill water/kettle from bathroom sink, which is very poor hygiene Could not connect personal devices to TV, so could not watch any of your own personal streaming services, so has to put up with boring free to air tv

Property is very centrally located, there is a small Woolworths located nearby. Parking was frustrating, I tried to reserve parking and was told that this was not possible but not to stress there would be a spot and that someone could park the car. Upon arrival ahead of family I was told there is no concierge and I would have to park the car myself. Again I tried to reserve a spot and was told I didn't need to there were lots available. When the family arrived we were told the car park was full. Obviously, I was unhappy and after complaining a spot was found. The parking is extremely tight in spaces. Rooms were nice, blackout blinds worked well, very short walk to central station.

Great staff but we got an unfortunate room.
On booking I had requested 2 Double beds. When we arrived we were put into a room with 2 single beds and a pull out couch. The staff were so friendly and had helped us with our bags. She then checked it but told me her manager wouldn't change our room. Instead they put the beds together for a king sized bed and the pull out lounge. Housekeeping was very fast however the pull out couch was uncomfortable and made the room very small for a family. Our room was also directly under the gym and people where dropping weights on the ground from 6am to 10pm. Trying to get the kids to sleep with the thumping was frustrating! Overall it was clean, the pool was warm and the staff really helpful and friendly.
