Rydges Hobart - Manor King Room

When we arrived the heating wasn't on and it was a very cold winters day in Hobart, it took ages to warm the room up. The bathroom is so old and very small it could definitely use a renovation. The bed being king was good but it was WAY too soft and the pillows were useless, you need something to lay on that doesn't disappear like a puff of air under your head. Lucky there was a spare doona in the cupboard for the fold out bed we didn't need as it was a cold room anyway being so old and only a sheet a a thin doona type thing on the bed. The TV was tiny for the room. I went to make myself a cup of coffee to warm myself after arriving and the kettle was so dirty and smelt so disgusting that I just couldn't use it. It looked like it had never been cleaned and perhaps someone had put something in it like tea. But the smell made your stomach churn. All in all I was very disappointed with the room, I thought being Rydges that staying in a room the called itself "Manor King" meant it would look something like it should in the 21st Century rather than being so outdated that I doubt anything had been done in that room for many years, except one wall look like it had been recently painted but that was it. You couldn't even cosy up in a couch as it only had two rather uncomfortable chairs to sit it. Everytime the toilet was flushed in the room next door it was like it was in the same room as you and even the shower next door was so noisy it woke my husband up when the person next door turned in on. Don't think I'll ever stay there again and wouldn't be recommending it to anyone else.

No meals

Location, price, plenty of room
Very good but unfortunately I have found when they cater for weddings, guests are unable to eat in the grill or obtain room service. However this information was not provided until the receptionist was asked when I noticed the wedding party. Had I been pre-warned I could have brought back a meal but as it was had to go back out to purchase a meal.

May have been 4 star 40 years ago!

Location near North Hobart cafe strip, the bed.
Whilst there were several good reviews for this hotel, if you scroll down you will see many complaints about lack of cleanliness. The furniture was 40 years old, except for the bed which was excellent but the overall appearance of the interior was dingy, depressing and I was very disappointed to be staying there.

Welcoming although dated.

The staff were brilliant. The unit was spacious. The pool was warm.
Our stay was good. The decor in our unit was dated and tired and what was in the kitchen was minimal however our request for other items was met promptly. My comment on food is the middle as we did not eat there. Given the value for money I would prefer the value rather than an update. The staff were absolutely brilliant, very professional and helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back.

Hobart Classic

Quiet, economical, clean
Lovely hotel in Hobart. Some reviews have really knocked the Rydges but I found it be comfortable, quiet and good value. I do agree that a renovation is due and the room staff were not exactly attentive to details (bed not made after first night) but all in all a nice place to stay. Only real downside for me was the lack of reasonable dining and a supermarket within walking distance.
