Besides a grand entrance through a florist (beautiful!!) we were greeted by the lovely Rebecca! She was so accommodating and helpful. Booking in was a breeze, the rooms were ready even though it was only mid-morning. Rooms are incredibly spacious (room 176) with a relaxing spa bath in room, and free wifi. The wait staff were also great, and meals...

We stayed on a leisure break. Great location - walk to Manuka or Kingston. Really comfortable bed and clean room but the room was so outdated and tired. The room was on the wing away from the atrium. The room did have a bit of an outlook with natural light from big windows. We didn't eat here so can't comment...

Have been going to the Rydges for about 30 years......some years have been poor but is fine now. Bathrooms still need upgrade. Service at reception was good, rooms were big but our room had a desk chair and the back of the chair just extended too far backwards making it for me unusable, the only other option was to sit...

This is an outstanding establishment. Big rooms with the very best cleanliness. Great spaces to relax and the indoor garden is great. Service at the front desk is amazing and welcoming. The cafe is also great and the restaurant food is to die for. Nikki in the restaurant was a delight, very bubbly and spot on with her food recommendations....

I came to Canberra for a meeting at Parliament House, Rydges beds are always so lovely, and now there is also free wifi. Didn't eat or have breakfast there, as I had to catch an early flight, would stay again.
