Rooms were smelly and disguising

January 2018

Pool area was good and the hotel manger was friendly

Aircon did not work. Front desk staff were incompetent. Booked the incorrect room with the wrong beds, got insulted when I asked to get changed rooms, refused to refund any decent amount of the bill when the aircon did not work for the entire length of stay. I had to call in the manager and I still only got a small discount. Staff moved us into room where they knew the aircon was not working and proceeded to take $250 a night for the room. DO NOT USE THIS HOTEL!!

September 2010

We arrived late at night to be told that our booking, made six weeks earlier had been cancelled and we were now booked in at another Rydge's hotel. This was infuriating as we had deliberately chosen the Plaza since we could walk to the station the next morning. I am writing to Rydge's.
