              8.8

              Convenient located (I had a ceremony to attend at the National Library) and quiet, the room was clean and I enjoyed the swimming pool, sauna and spa facilities. Nice internal garden with tables, breakfast was nice and so the staff.

              the carpet on the corridor to our room was old and the room was not warm enough in the first day. But I asked to check the air conditioner in our room and the second night the room was warm. During the weekend there is no-one in capital hill: better rent a car/bike than walking in desolate roads.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              The room we had was spotlessly clean, towels soft and bed very comforable. The receptionist went out of her was to get us close to where our friends rooms and she was very efficient and helpfull on checkin

              the building is getting very old and the decor looks tired. Buffett breakfast was a bit ordinary.

            • Single
              5.4

              Location was good for my business needs and close to Manuka restaurants was good

              Its in dire need of a refurb. The rooms are old and worn. Carpets and doors at least should be replaced. Lack of power switches in room - had to pull the lamp out to use my laptop at the work desk.. Aircon (heating) did not work in room. Breakfast was really basic and I hate having to pay extra for a proper coffee (who the hell drink perculated coffee nowadays?). Also if you have the breakfast in the "Atrium" in winter then turn the heating on. Bit of a con adding surcharge to pay on Visa.

              Conveniently situated, comfortable bed, good space in the bathroom, lovely light room.

              The housemaid over the weekend was absolutely useless at making a bed. Had to remake it. Otherwise room was clean.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              Nothing our room you so call an Embassy suit was disgraceful and I can not believe you sold it as a room . So disgusted was I I got the manager up to see the room so he did not think we had done the damage. I have stayed at Rydges in Mel and Perth and the standarded was high thats why I stayed at Rydges Canberra. The manage took 35% off our room price, greatful that, however the experience has left doubts that I would ever recommend Rydges.The room service food was average and presentation poor.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              Friendly staff & comfy beds

              The food was fairly ordinary. Breakfast - eggs where raw, bacon not cooked properly and the mushrooms where tasteless and watery.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              We did experience a non working however we were very kindly provided with a free breakfast and a discounted account - we could not have been happier with this result. Staff were courteous in handling the issue and we were satisfied customers. Thank you!

              The front desk staff was very helpful and professional.

              There was nothing wrong or that we didn't like during our stay.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Easy access, beautiful foyer, lovely room. Breakfast was disappointing as food cold and coffee pots empty. But overall room was great and air conditioning perfect. In house movies had no sound which was very diappointing.

              5.0

              The location

              It was budget standard at mid to luxury price. The rooms were 1980s faded, furniture cracked, overcrowded and overheated and institutional style instructions not to change, the phone on the bedside table was unconnected. The staff confused my coffee order at the breakfast service. There didn't seem to be any wifi. Old fashioned, but not heritage. With breakfast a single occupancy cost $390, overpriced. This was booked centrally at rmit university, however I would not stay here again or recommend it to colleagues.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              The restaurant food was pitiful, waiters clueless but friendly, concierge unhelpful and disinterested.

            • Family with children
              3.8

              I book family room but i went there and till 8pm there was no arrangement for my children bed.i went there 1530 for check in and i got answer to come back after one hour as your room is not ready i came back after 0ne and half hour still it was not ready

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              very little. We have stayed at Ridges Capital Hill for many years and were not impressed at the decline in services.

              The room we were provided was dark, with no external windows and artificial lighting so poor that it made even reading by bedside reading light virtually impossible. The privacy curtains on the windows facing into the hotel interior spaces made the room so dark that we needed an alarm clock to wake up on even the brightest morning. The breakfast buffet was appalling. Long queues, not enough staff to ensure that buffet items were refilled and constant shortages of food. We waited for 15 minutes at a virtually empty buffet table and left to have breakfast in Manuka.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              staff were great, spa was nice, heated pool great for winter

              hotel rooms need a facelift, rooms were dusty and nothing was cleaned well. We booked for 5 people and on arrival had only 2 towels and no bed linen for kids beds?
