Berry, Australia
Reviewed 21 September 2015

Spacious rooms with pleasant views, design allows all rooms to be close to elevators, clean, comfortable and well appointed. Staff very obliging. Facilities for drop-off and pick-up very good and several short term parking spaces. Restaurant menu a little restricted but quality, service and value good. We stay often as we have to attend RPA and associated Clinic frequently,

Rydges Camperdown is a bit tired and in need of a renovation. Staff are however very friendly and the service is generally pretty good. Limited restaurant and bar services (restaurant closes at 9pm and doesn't open weekends). Food is actually pretty good - above average menu. Rooms are comfortable enough; but not up to the standard of other Rydges Hotels...

I stayed here for a night due to this hotel's convenient location to the RPA (5min or less walk to main entry). Unfortunately, the location and staff at reception were the only pluses during my stay. I was welcomed by friendly reception staff on arrival and given my key to a dirty and very run down room. The toilet had...

We have stayed at this Rydges before as we are Priority members and it is close to the Enmore Theatre where we were attending a concert.

This was our second stay here. After a minor mishap with the bed during our first stay, the hotel manager offered us a complimentary upgrade including breakfast and parking. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was a buffet and had many tasty options available. On our way back from breakfast the manager was at reception...

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children spent a couple of nights at the Rydges Camperdown. The deal we got as an absolute bargain - Friday and Saturday nights for less than a Saturday night in the CBD.

The room was pleasant enough. Clean with all expected amenities. It did, have an extremely strong smell of room deodorizer. And the sound of the lifts was very audible in the room. So make sure your room in as far from the lift as you can. It was a very quick trip from the airport to the hotel.
