Over the past 3years we have stayed at Rydges North Sydney. We keep returning as it is consistently comfortable & satisfying. The views over North Sydney Oval, Parks and the harbour are very relaxing. We noticed this stay that the Chef has varied the menu somewhat. The new French cast Iron implements really keep the food piping hot for Breakfast....

Vanilla experience. Nothing special to note. No gym to work out in (they have vouchers to one nearby). Location was good - very close to North Sydney CBD. This was offset by flickering bedside light and running toilet cistern (reported both). Bed was comfy and staff friendly.

We stayed here as we had to attend something at the hotel the following morning. The rooms were priced accordingly and well furnished. The rooms were quite hot and it seemed the aircon didn't work at all. We had 3 rooms in our family and everyone mentioned they felt quite hot. Our fridge was broken which wasn't good as we...

This is our second stay here & we had very similar experience both times. We had a nice view of the harbour, not that we had much time to look at it due to our busy schedules. The beds are comfortable. I’m very much a princess & the pea girl due to a bad back injury so I’m very cautious...

Whenever we head to Sydney for a weekend or overnight stay this is our hotel of choice. Friendly, comfortable and a great location. A short walk to North Sydney station and very reasonably priced. We arrived at 11am to drop off our luggage and our room was already available.

For travellers looking for Sydney CBD accommodation but without the pricetag, look no further. The hotel is situated in a quiet, leafy suburb of Sydney but is close to all that the CBD offers. We had tickets to see a play at the Sydney Wharf Theatres and the hotel was only 10 to 15 minutes drive away. Parking is available...

First visit to this Hotel, and will definitely be back. Would normally stay in the CBD, but pricing can be prohibitive. Rydges turned out to be a really great alternative. 20 minute walk to North Sydney train station, then a five minute train ride to the city. Also took a ferry ride from McMahons point to Circular Quay. Hotel was...
