About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   We had an amazing experience with the staff here. We checked in and the man at the desk asked what our plans were and I told him it was my partners birthday. We went up to our room, then headed back out. Hours later we returned and found a tray of chocolate covered strawberries and a personal, hand written birthday card from the staff. It was such an unexpected gesture and it made us really happy. We later ordered dinner from a local pizza place to be delivered. We got a call from the front desk saying “we have a food delivery here for you. Is it okay if we send them up to your room?” We’ve never had a hotel check that with us. They were taking an extra step to ensure guest safety. This was our first time here but will be our new go-to hotel. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so great!

Review:   My husband attended a conference at Rydges Central and we decided to stay a couple of nights. A good decision as it turned out. Delicious breakfast with lots to choose from. Make sure to ask for the discounted breakfast at check-in! Staff was wonderful! The girls in the breakfast made the whole experience even better, thank you! Also make sure to take a good look at the gorgeous American guy in the reception. The air conditioner wasn't the best but the service in combination with the breakfast makes it a winner. A really good choice for a short stay in Sydney.

Review:   I have had two very pleasant stays at Surry Hills Rydges for work in the last two weeks. Staff are extremely helpful and responsive, facilities excellent. It's just a couple of minutes walk from Central Station after catching the airport train. Great buffet breakfast. Had a swim in the pool. Highlight for me is the staff's attitude; cheerful, genuine and nothing was a problem for them.

Review:   We spent our wadding night in the hotel and it was perfect. First thing they upgrade our room and then brought us a dessert with a handwritten congratulations card. The staff was very nice and kind. The hotel is clean and beautiful. Thank you, Rydges.
