    I had a problem with the internet card I had purchased, The lass at the hotel went out of her way to help as I was in hurry to get on line again for an international skype meeting. It was all sorted and in the end I had no charge!

    walk from reception to carpark elevator is not enclosed and open to Melbourne's beautiful weather

    This hotel was clean, quiet and room was spacious. Staff were polite and willing to assist when asked.

    Was a bit far from CBD but had easy access to tram and rail to city.

    The parking facilities are great and the service is good. The rooms are very comfortable and the room service was very enjoyable and very prompt.

    The continental breakfast was incorrect and the pastry was very dry and quite stale

    Good

    Location was good staff friendly modern and great gym

    I thought the rooms were very small compared to what is shown on Booked.net felt like I was cheated of space. Should only pay for half a room as that is all we got.

    The hotel is not a four star establishment, maybe a three at best

    The rooms are dirty, not maintained at a good standard. The staff are poorly trained and the service is sloppy

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Spacious room with kitchenette facilities although the cutleries are not always as according for the no. Of guests in the room. Guest laundry is very convenient. The complimentary car parking helps especially when guests have to rent a car to move around as it is quite difficult to find a taxi around the area.

    It started at check-in where I was required to the full stay up front on my credit card. The room was small, with hazaedous steps inside the room along with a mirror wall behind the bed that was cracked in several places. The gym and sauna was closed, the pool was closed and the location left you no alternative but to drive several kms for any activities. The staff were not very responsive, it took 40 minutes to get towels and soap for the room. I was disgusted with the hotel and instead of staying the planned 10 days, I left the hotel on the third day, I will be writing to the Rydges Corporation to advise them of this unacceptable facility.
