How many stars?

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 16, 2011

I've stayed in 3 star motels with better quality accommodation. Cracked tiles, dirty tile grout, toothpaste splatter on bathroom door.

Quality aside, our biggest problem was communication...
Started with an online booking...discounted price with breakfast extra.
Before retiring we decided that we would leave the following morning before breakfast and grab something on the way (700km drive).

Asked reception about refund on breakfast and was told that we would only be charged if we had breakfast...wrong!

Not only were we charged more than the online price, we were charged for the breakfast we didn't have.

Contacted Rydges by phone to query the charges and was told that the accounts person would be in the following day and contact us about the charge...still waiting for the call.

Would we stay here again, no!

For the price, there is much better accommodation in Canberra.

Our stay was not so good here. I got the deal from Rydges mainly due to the family offer for bed, breakfast and tickets to Questacon, Canberra's Science Museum.

However, we foundd our family room a bit cramped for all four of us. The hot breakfast was alright, it was not buffet.

We've stayed at several Rydges' hotel chains but this one was not to our liking. It was cold outside too so it is not very advisable to stay in cabins/units for young families.

It is classified as a hotel but it is more like a tourist/caravan park. There are amenities but since it was winter and freezing outside, the outdoor pool is useless in cold weather so we would have preferred heated indoor pools like in other Rydges hotels in Canberra.

Unique Quality: There is really nothing much to say about it, must be alright in the summer as the bush setting would be more appreciated. There is an archery stand and tennis courts too aside from the pool. The equipments are free of charge I think. Staff are a bit helpful, thankfully!

great value, worth returning for!

The grounds are well kept and buildings newly renovated. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Apart from a few small problems eg a couple of spiders in the room and the toilet stopped flushing once, it was a perfect stay and the problems were dealt with within 15 mins of us reporting them. The room was very nice, facilities excellent-with free use of pool, spa, sauna, pool table, tennis courts etc. Restaurant was gorgeous and by being a rydges priority member it was a cheap very nice dinner (delicious wood fired pizza) with cheap drinks. It was a very relaxing and comfortable stay which was wonderful and extrememly affordable. Even though it was 10-15 mins out of the main part of town the resort itself more then made up for it, as I have stayed closer in town for alot more then i paid for this resort and didnt get nearly the same service!
I would certainly be retuning asap and would recommend this resort to all!

Unique Quality: the use of spa, sauna, gym, pool, tennis courts (also they provide balls and raquets), in house movies, 3 outstanding restarants and a bar in the resort! surrounded by tranquil bushland

Directions: just beofre you head into the main section of canberra, big sign directs you and is next to a united petrol station, you cant miss it.
