ALWAYS FRIENDLY SERVICE AT RYDGES”

I love staying here. Always greeted by polite professional courteous staff on arrival with everything explained. Your room is serviced daily and maintained by their great attendants and nothing is too hard for them. Everything always looks clean. It is a nice quiet hotel and you don't hear any noise from other rooms, i.e. showers etc. Great shower pressure. close to walking paths along esplanade for early morning or late afternoon strolls or exercise. always ample parking here at reasonable daily charge. Close to local eateries if you don't wish to eat at the hotel.

Our upgrade was well worth it ”

Our experience at Rydges was absolutely excellent. We have travelled extensively and stayed in many hotels over the years and Rydges on the Esplanade is up there with the best. Our only negative was the time it took to check in. Felt like an eternity. The delay appeared to be due to a disorganised check in system. Never the less we will return.

Great accomodation, great staff ”

We were so happy with our stay here. All of the staff at the property were friendly and went out of their way to help out and ensure we had a great stay. Due to this we felt so welcomed and at home. Secondly the hotel and our room was very clean and tidy. All the essentials of what you needed were there. Was on the edge of the main strip but was still a short and pleasant walk. The hotel and rooms look slightly old so might need a spruce up soon. However I definitely recommend !

As long as you don’t mind ending up in a room with a view different to what you booked
