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.
Impressed with the kitchen, u are able to ask for kitchen pack free to do your cooking. Car park is also reasonable. Is near the northland mall with Coles, k mart around. Is not far from city, good place to stay with cheaper car park
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.
Nice rooms in northern suburbs”
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.
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.
The WiFi are chargeable for AUD$5/night
Gross stays ”
We stayed in this hotel 5 nights. On the 2nd day, the housekeeper only set our bed up, didn't change the bed sheet and vacuum the room. On the 25th Dec, they didn't clean up our room. A complain was made to the reception, he said that the clean up room should has been made based on request during Xmas, the 25th and 26th. But we have not been informed earlier. The staff brought the vacuum cleaner to our room and told us that since the complain/request was made in the evening, about 6pm (after we came from travelling that day) its our responsibility to clean our room ourselves and put away the rubbish ourselves!!! The management should have informed the guest if a request should be made on special days!!! On the 26th Dec, we requested to clean up our room. But, they only brought towels and put away rubbish, did not change the bed sheet and vacuum the room. The room service given was gross!!! Overall: 1. During our 5nights stayed, they had never changed our bed sheet, only vacuumed our room 2times after complains were made. 2. The toilet flush didn't work on the 2nd day. 3. The internet connection was extremely worse. We only could access the internet for 1 night after complains made to the reception and talked to their IT! Indeed, the internet connection was good in the reception area, but not in our room!!!
Great hotel just out of Melbourne get service. Only downside was my room service order was stuffed up
Very good ”
Clean, large room. Very good value.
Melbourne Short Visit”
Reception were very quick and efficient, the room was quite large and pleasantly decorated, photos of the motel were accurate, windows were soundproof, comfortable stay. Trip from airport was straight forward and tram transport to the city is about 100 metres.
Its not too bad”
The room was not so clean, the floor was stiched and didnt seem that much worth it for the value... However the staff were friendly enough. Our breakfast was misunderstood however the receptionist offered us a great dinner on the house with wine!
Areas of improvement”
Hot water pressure dropped considerably in the morning as compared to my evening shower. When phoning room service for a meal, it took four goes to get me through to the restaurant. Overall, a pleasant one night stay.
Money well spent.”
I had an incredible time staying in the hotel, the staff was awesome and the room was very tidy and clean!Love the fact that the room had everything I needed and the shower was awesome too!Though was a short stay but I would surely recommended it to everyone else!cheers for the stay sure be happy come back :)
Great accommodation at a reasonable price”
I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. My room was clean, spacious and very comfortable and exactly what was needed for my short stay whilst in Melbourne. I would have no hesitation in staying there again when in Melbourne.
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!
Staff and Facility were Fantastic”
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.
Room was wonderful. We were staying for a conference and did find the rooms were way too hot and our demonstrators hard to see. Mirrors on the roof or small platforms for the speakers would have been appreciated.
Felt like I was in the lap of luxury!”
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!
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.
