Everything worked well, [shower,light dimmer switches, air conditioning, tv, fridge] Great views from room and hallways had viewing windows for other directions. Also glass walled lift with views over magnificent pool/spa area and the ocean.
No ice in freezer section of fridge on arrival. [no big deal,had to put something in this section]
That it was out dated, hallways badly need modernizing
Comfortable & Affordable,we will stay again on our next trip.
Noting to complain about.
Friendly staff,flexibility on check out times, food, location, price.
Don't be put of by bad reviews on the wifi. It works fine on the terrace and a good excuse to sit in the bar. Rooms are dated but clean and tidy with all you need for your stay.
Location is pretty good.
It was pretty expensive for the property was old
the pool was great, cooling and refreshing. Maybe the switch for the spa could be closer to the actual pool as it made it hard for me to get out of the pool as I had a sore leg.
I had the chance to upgrade my room and we got a room on the 6th floor with a view of the ocean but the verandah was full of bird faeces. So we didn't use it. the airconditioner didn't work very well. the night was very warm.
The restaurant The pool The location The air conditioning
Staff were absolutely brilliant and lovely meals at restraunt .
Dissapointed with our room , thought would be bigger and had adjacent door where we had noisy people staying with very noisy children . Rooms looking very tired . Doors and handles should always be cleaned bathroom etc . Towels very thin everything looking tired .
Buffet Breakfast so much to choose from
Buffet Breakfast Too much to choose from and I am supposed to be on a diet
The staff, the location and the food.
The bathroom needs updating and particularly during my first day there was a strong damp smell in my room.
Location & friendly staff
Ceiling at aircon outlet was dirty. A water leak from the bath/shower
friendly reception staff, comfortable living
The bed was very comfortable.
Spacious room overlooking pool and ocean, close to beach and city. Staff very helpful.
Restaurant had limited menu. Christmas Day lunch had plentiful food but nothing special and venue was too crowded .
Very clean, good pool
Poor wifi, as slow and dropped out
the location, the view, the large beds
the location of the tea and coffee making facilities
Great Location Bedroom was lovely with an excellent ocean view Friendly staff
Poor wifi in my room, only slightly better when using it on the balcony
location quiet We made the most of our holiday and the room we were given.
We did not get the room we requested. Told there was no alternative as they were fully booked with corporate guests. Booked six months in advance and had to have a family room with two double beds and bunks! Breakfast was overpriced, no laid up tables and not enough seating. Birds landing on tables frequently and no inside seating. Have stayed at other Rydges hotels and this one is nothing like the others we have stayed in.
The location is superb and relaxing around the pool was lovely. Great food in restaurant out front
Not enough staff in restaurant, only one staff member was available in busy lunch rush
The room smelt very musty
Extremely comfortable bed. Spacious Excellent bistro Will stay there again Coffee machine a great add on
Not Much, cant remember so that's good.
fabulous location. Really enjoyed the view from the balcony. Lovely staff.
Hotel was a little dated. A few more lounges were needed around the pool.
Very luxurious room and soft bed after 3 weeks in Japan where rooms were small and beds often very firm.
Front desk confusion about booking on our 6am arrival after a long flight - turned out our booking was marked a no-show even though I had rung to advise we would not be arriving till after 4am. Luckily it was still available as we were exhausted. There was some confusion at checkout as well. Didn't have any problems with any of the hotels in Japan where we don't even speak the language, so this was disappointing to come home to. Wifi was unreliable in the room.
Staff very friendly and prompt
Bathroom - soap was awful black bits coming off as you washed hands, didn't like the taps in bath it was confusing and wasted water. Ceiling had lots of black spots above bed
