We were very happy with this accommodation, in general. When I asked how long it would take to walk to Luna Park, was told over the phone it would take approx 10 mins. When arrived at this hotel, was told it would take approx 20 mins. After we spoke to several other people the walking time is approx 40 mins....

Stay in this business hotel from 7-10 July 2015. Location is very good and only 100m distance from international airport. Queen room size is fit and buffet breakfasts are acceptable. Besides, staffs at reception are friendly and provide professional services.

The location of the hotel met my needs and was a short walk to our office. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately there was no hot water for shower in the morning, busy time I guess and room service breakfast were not able to provide requested items that appeared on the breakfast menu, bit disappointing.

Recently spent three nights at Rydges whilst attending a workshop in North Sydney. Rydges is walking distance to all on offer in Miller Street, North Sydney. Enjoyed a drink downstairs in the bar but thought breakfast a bit pricey and frequented the cafe behind. There's no concierge service, so you will need to cart your own bags up and down....

Having stayed at a number of different Rydges properties in the last 12 months it was reassuring to know that at the very least I would get a clean room and welcoming staff. Rydges North Sydney certainly met that expectation but with just a few small changes it could so easily move from good to great. The hotel is conveniently...
