    Average”

    Booked this place cause of the location I had my own car & drove to all major places. Wanted to avoid city expensive parking fee. However, when I arrived for checkin was told I paid for eco rate which didn’t include housekeeping. This wasn’t mentioned while I was making the booking through Agoda. Didn’t like the fact housekeeping was extra charge. I would rather get a hotel in city with same reputation and get parking then paying extra for housekeeping here.

    Housekeeping Needs Improvement ”

    My tower was misplaced by the housekeeping. Daily housekeeping did not replace the body wash, keep giving shampoo (2 bottles) only. About 8-min walk to train station, and the hotel provides FREE shuttle bus to town on weekdays ONLY.

    The room, the pool, the food

    We were happy with our stay. The room was clean and of a good standard. Free wifi would have been nice and the pool would have been perfect if it was heated. Hotel is in the northern suburbs and not ideal for those wanting to spend their time in the city.

    Excellent, but...”

    The high marks are because the room was spacious and facilities were excellent, including a full size fridge and cooking facilities. Bed was comfortable. BUT the room is overdue for renovation. Parts of the kitchen area veneer is cracked or missing and the carpet had ripples so severe we had to be careful not to trip over them. The hotel was not full. I was very disappointed to be allocated this room.

    Clean room, friendly staff made it a hit At check in. The chill Restaurant food was Delicious & staff were very helpful. One young male staff went out of his way to ask if he could help with our grandson, I’m warming his food etc. as we were babysitting on this visit. The only downside was it was quite far from the City & West Footscray.

    Our actual stay was great as we've stayed here before, however, this time we dined in the restaurant. Unfortunately we both found the food very average which in turn made it very overpriced!!! Don't mind paying but please serve something that's at least on par with what I cook at home!

    The staff at Rydges were more than helpful, after i found myself in an awkward situation stuck in melb with no cash or credit card. As i had stayed there the night before they persevered until they could get me a room. I cannot thank the staff on that particular night enough. Over all the excellence of the Hotel is outstanding.

    One of the best hotels I've stayed in! Extremely friendly and attentive staff who went above and beyond the call of duty. The room had quality fittings & furnishings and was impeccably clean. All located in a very quiet part of town. Was slightly disappointed with the breakfast buffet and room service. Although very efficiently served, the food was average at best. Overall a very pleasant stay. It was like home away from home!

    Location to my work in Melbourne, room modernity, spacious room

    I was surprised! It was quite modern and spacious. I loved the décor. I travel a huge amount for work and this was a little bit different to what I am used to. Good value for money. Just don't try and check in early as there wasn't anything available until 2pm. When I was there the restaurant was being renovated so I have no idea of what the food was like. Parking can get busy but there are lots of spaces.

    I was given a very warm welcoming from Adele at Reception after a long flight from overseas and was assisted promptly with a very early check-in so I could rest. The room was vibrant and different to usual hotels with big windows, refreshing looks and amazing cleanliness. On check out, Adele was once again very receptive and assisted for a speedy checkout and wished me a pleasant stay. The simple things that make a stay enjoyable, Adele exceeded in. Thank you Adele.
