I booked on the day I would arrive. When I arrived the reception had not completed any paperwork and asked me to sit in the bar. This was 7pm after arriving from the hospital. Disappointed my room was not ready.

Dated hotel with worn furniture but who cares when you have a large clean room with large comfy bed, the most comfortable bed I have slept on, no matter how fussy you are. Geelong is set out in grids, so going everywhere in town is convenient.

Dirty room and carpet, more like a 1-2 star hotel or a motel. The only clean part of the room was the bathroom. Checkout was at midday but housekeeping opened the door at 9am. Wifi didn't work. Overall bad experience, would not recommend.

Terrible service ”
We came to Geelong for the football, while the location of the hotel is great and the room was quite nice that's where it ends. Getting back to our room after attending the game and having a great night we spent 5 mins calling room service and only getting an engaged tone, then spent another 5 minutes calling front reception and not getting an answer. The property facilities state 24 hour front desk and 24 hour room service but doesn't say anywhere how hard it will be to contact both. After using our mobile phone to call the hotel we finally get to speak to the only person on for the night, and asking about room service only to be told that it will be over 2 hours to wait .. on the room dining menu it says 40 minute wait for 24 hour service which is fine. But 2 hours ?? I've stayed in a lot of places before and never had to wait 2 hours anywhere in the world, but it gets better .. the night manager then suggests we leave the hotel and head down the road at 12:30 at night to McDonald's ..... after asking him again why would they offer a service they can't obviously provide he rudely tells me I should have expected this being game night ??? so now it was my fault that I would have to wait for room service because I decided to stay at their hotel on game night ? After feeling like packing up and leaving wanting my money back and asking this managers name he then says he can bring us up some wedges straight away for us to have and by then we were over it and being hungry we said thank you ok. Over an hour later and still waiting and being close to 2am in the morning we gave up and decided to put the do not disturb sign on the door and went to bed .. 5 mins later a knock at the door even tho we had put the sign up and there he was with our half cooked and terrible wedges ... the bed was comfy and we had a good night sleep but then to top it off I had to have a cold shower in the morning due to no hot water which again had me dumbfounded .... I would give this hotel 0 s

Very comfortable, great value ”
We booked a last minute room and we were very happy with the size and comfort of the room. It was very clean, 2 double beds(very comfy) and great water pressure! We had a beautiful meal from room service. We left items in the room after we departed and staff telephoned us to let us know - which was great. Thought price of car parking was a bit steep considering it was outside, not valet and not secure or anything, so I parked on the street for free - no extra distance to walk . Would recommend and stay again though. Would have liked more staff though so I could have had help with luggage.

Good hotel with renovation plans”
I enjoyed my stay at Rydges which has just changed from Mecure. Staff informed me on checkin that they have plans to update the rooms soon. This was good to know as it had only been 6 weeks since the changeover. I would look forward to seeing the newly renovated rooms. However saying that the rooms were comfortable but a little expensive.

Nice hotel, but some poor aspects”
At over $200 per room for a night, you expect something. You get nothing. No breakfast, no parking, no internet. And they still put a $60 charge on our credit card. Because they can. Why should I have to ring them together them to reverse this charge? Not good enough!
