I felt really looked after from the moment of check-in. The room was clean and inviting. Happy hour and room service were affordable. We all had so much fun in our short stay. We met other families at this resort also and all the guests seemed so chilled and relaxed. My kids did not want to go home. We cant wait to come back again soon.

Room tip: Great location, friendly staff, affordable room service

We stayed at this hotel for our wedding anniversary for 2 days. Firstly I booked the deluxe king Harbourview room. Beware the pictures are a lie. They had high ceilings and were apparently large rooms, 509 was pokey. We were given room 509 which was nothing like the picture but did at least have a partial harbour view. The bathroom was dated, mouldy and so tiny even for 2 people. The sink was blocked and didn’t drain, the toilet seat was loose.
The room was dirty and grotty and the not cleaned that well. We got in there after a late check out .
The room had low ceilings and there was a connecting door which we could hear everything in the next room which included the guests showering at 3 am. The was also an annoying click sound every 15 mins all night long. Even ear plugs didn’t help. The 2 days were the worst sleep I’ve ever had.
I rang the reception the next morning and was rudely advised we were in the right room and they were all the same and we couldn’t be moved as all the others we occupied. I do not believe we were given the correct room.
The hotel lacked soul and was not even asked how our stay was when checked out. Probably just as well as I would’ve have probably gone off on how bad the room was. Don’t say you are 4 star accommodation when really it may be a 2 at best if you were a motel.

This was the worst experience I’ve had for a joyous occasion. Bitterly disappointed.

Well we stayed here for a week and it was nice enough. We had a great view of the harbour but if you want the view go up to the roof at night and you have the bridge right next to you and the opera house right across the quay. It was spectacular. The place was being run on a skeleton staff but breakfast was unreal and the guy serving us couldn't do enough for us. He was great. Would stay there again for sure especially because you are surrounded by the history of the first fleet.

Although Rydges Sydney Harbour is a nice enough hotel, our room feels so old! Fixtures and fittings are basic. There is a popcorn ceiling, for goodness’ sake! The TV is tiny and not ‘smart’, meaning you can’t cast to it or watch Netflix etc. The bathroom is so small and very worn, with cracked tiles on the floor and a mouldy air vent.

We secured a reasonable nightly rate ($150), obviously due to low booking numbers during COVID, but I fear that this hotel has relied on its excellent location in The Rocks for far too long, not investing anything in updating its rooms. Location is one thing, but not everything! I would prefer a nicer room and then make my own way into the popular areas.

Something needs to be done about parking, if you are staying in the hotel, there should be 1 parking spot available and included as parking is a nightmare around the hotel & expensive.
Location is beautiful.
