              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.

              a little bit far from the city, not walking distance

              We love the size of the room, its huge, very comfy bed and pillows. Sofa is also a pull out bed so it me, my sister and my friend dont have to share the king size bed. The hotel is easy to find, it is not a walking distance to the city centre, it takes around 20 minutes walking. Easy to find food around at night or snacks. Overall I would recommend to stay at this hotel, very satisfied big room for 4 people to stay in.

              Rydges in Hobart, Tasmania”

              1. Excellent value. 2. Neat, clean with helpful staff. 3. Not far from town and most attractions.
              I considered it in-town, but locals say it is north of town. The soccer stadium was right out our window, but we did not hear anything.

              Our next trips will have Rydges on our list of hotels. Situated on Argyle St., you can walk South to the harbor and all the establishments and tourist spots in about 20 minutes. The Post Office and bus terminal are right on the town corner and the buses are reasonable and will take you to most attractions. A taxi driver named "Steve" will provide a tour service at a reasonable price - $40 an hour. He picked us up at our hotel, took us to see everything we could not see by bus and then took us to the airport! 2-3 hours and you can see quit a bit and save on the heavy tourist prices.

              Perfectly adequate”

              We had a great experience at this hotel. Staff were very helpful letting us store luggage for a few extra days. Definitely a little dated but perfectly adequate for the price. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment style room which was quite large and roomy. We paid a reasonable price which included breakfast - continental was good/average, the full breakfast menu however was surprisingly good! Location is right around the corner from North Hobart Elizabeth St shops - State Theater cinema is great and a few good cafes. Also recommend the Tequila bar! Follow the road down and after a solid but easy 30 min walk you'll be right in the heart of town. We would stay again.

              Hadn't stayed here for 20 years. Nothing has changed. Rooms are dated but clean. They are about to start renovations for a new modern look. Service in the restaurant was not very good. Had to wait a long time for my meal and then only got my drink half way through the meal. The food was very good though. I was charged twice for my meal on checking out. I would recommend Rydges to my friends.

              The staff here are wonderful, helpful and friendly. This hotel is in a beautiful old building and some of the rooms are due for a makeover but the position is great for North Hobart restaurants and is just a nice easy 30min walk to Salamanca Bay.

              Breakfast, view from the room and car parking.

              The reception and dining room staff were great. They had an excellent knowledge of attractions in Hobart. The staff member who made up our room each day need training in bed making. The bed spread and top sheet was good in that they had been straightened and retucked. The bottom sheet was left in the same condition as it was after we had slept the night in the beds ie it was rumpled and loose.

              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.

              Huge, clean room, with great kitchenette.

              The room was huge, as it was effectively an apartment. We had a completely separate longe room. The kitchenette was great. Reasonable sized bar fridge, a microwave oven & plenty of crockery & cutlery. The Reception is in a separate building, which is marginally inconvenient, with Hobart's inclement weather. Nice place. Pleasant staff. Good location. Would stay there again.

              Hit and Miss”

              The buildings have great character and the location with its views is great. Staff were very helpful and friendly as you would expect. The only disappointing aspect for us was the cleanliness and facilities in the room. The room itself is large and well fitted but lacks common utilities ie. toaster, plates, knifes, forks etc. There is a microwave but nothing else. We also were disappointed with the daily housekeeping, the bed top cover was only ever pulled up and tucked in, the bottom sheet left crumpled. It’s these small details that cast a disappointing shadow over the stay. Get those things right and we would have no complaints at all. One other suggestion would be to put a second TV in the front lounge. It seemed a wasted and under-utilised room.
