Best hotel. 1bedroom apartment, fully furnished with kitchen with a most competitive price. Cleanliness - impeccable. Service - prompt. Location - quiet and serene. Staff - lovely. A home away from home.

The hotel has old charm and our king suite was spacious at a very reasonable price. But the lo ation is some 30+ minutes walk from the warf and the city centre, or ca. $11-15 with a cab. The bathroom was fine, the TV was smallish and the receptionists were not always friendly or efficient.

We loved our stay at Rydges in Hobart! We stayed in the Superior King Suite and we thought for the price we paid, we definitely got our money's worth! Was expecting just one room with an ensuite but got a whole apartment. There was kitchen with cooking facilities, separate bedroom and lounge room and also a big bathroom with shower...

We were staying in one of the antique suites that hadn't yet been renovated. It was perfectly comfortable. Can't wait to see the rooms renovated. The restaurant was a tad outdated and could do with a complete refresh of the menu but apart from that everything else was very nice. The staff were excellent and made our 5 nights very...

The team at Rydges Hobart has been the main draw card for me returning several times. They are friendly and genuinely seem to love their jobs, nothing is to much hassle. The rooms are older style, but it looks like renovations are underway, clean with all the facilities you need for a short stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rydges. Staff were friendly and made us aware early on that the place was being refurbished, so could overlook the decor. We found it clean regardless. The kids enjoyed the pool. and the buffet breakfast was really nice. Only criticism was that we had booked online and reception staff weren't aware of the online...
