Rather mixed experience

Our stay at Rydges Capitol Hill was ordinary at best. The hotel is close to Parliament (5-10 minute walk). close to many of the embassies (25 minute walk or 5 minute drive) and the Manuka "village" for dining is easily accessible. The staff were friendly and helpful; we we're put in a room adjacent to the hotel bar and the staff moved us after we omplained about the noise. Now for the downside...the hotel needs a decor overhaul to say the least; if you want something with an atmosphere, go elsewhere. Our room was clean enough, but the hair dryer was broken, the 2 towels the hotel provided were rough/threadbare and there was no bedding on the sofa bed (we didn't discover this until my son was ready to go to bed...it took 40 minutes for the front desk to bring us bedding). The carpets throughout were dirty/stained and room service trays lay in the corridors for hours...like 24. The breakfast buffet is overpriced and mediocre, you are better off going to a Manuka village cafe. The pool is nice, but you will be charged $10 if you want to use the gym. Finally, after I returned to Melbourne, I discovered that Rydges charged me $28 for phone calls I did not make. I called the hotel to enquire and discovered my supposed calls were made at a time when I hadn't even checked into the hotel yet. I was told my credit card would be refunded, yet I am still waiting for the credit 2 days later. I do not recommend Rydges, as I believe that in Australia's Capitol there has to be something better for the same price.

Rydges Capital Hill Canberra

Fantastic location with all services - great breakfast included in price, access to best broadsheet newspapers, pool, gym and wi-fi. A shame that gym and wi-fi access is additional cost but still very good value. The hotel needs painting and new carpet (getting quite marked in places) which is probably why it is so affordable given the great location.

Some great eateries in Manuka and Kingston, including Verve which is one of our favourites.
