          Clean with adequate facilities although perhaps a little dated. Well-positioned close to restaurants and the hub of Townsville with off-street parking. This was a good find on a discounted 'last minute' rate. Would probably consider staying againMore

          Hi, as a member of RPG, I am supposed to receive a "welcome " drink each time I check in. That is not always possible with many Rydges closing over holiday periods. I was told a couple of different stories about this: 1. You can use it at mini bar 2. It stays on your card until you check in at another Rydges property. I didn't have them on my card when I finally found one with a bar open? What's the deal?
