Eventhouse Cronulla

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Recently stayed at Eventhouse Cronulla while attending the footy from interstate. Considering my stay was for one night only and on a match day the price was not too bad. I stayed in an 'Ocean View Room' which was clean, comfortable, quiet and obviously recently refurbished. Staff encountered were professional and courteous at all times. I didn't catch the name of the reception lady (blonde hair) but she was helpful and pleasant which really created a great first impression of the hotel. This included allowing an early check in which was very much appreciated after a long day of travel. I was also offered tickets to the game in case I didn't already have any. Cronulla Mall is virtually next door with many shopping and dining options. The beach is directly across the street from the property and crossing the intersection gets you to 'Northies' nightclub. As an occasional, short term traveler Rydges really does have the best loyalty program going around. Discount room rates, discounted food and beverage, late check out of 1pm and a free drink at the bar. That's all without having to accrue any points or frequent stays. If the price is right I would most definitely consider Eventhouse again for future Cronulla visits.

After staying at the QT in bondi for a couple of days we decided to stay in Cronulla as we were going to watch the footie.... the Eventhouse (previously Rydges) is part of the same group of hotels and you can see that they're trying to update the very tired looking rooms in Cronulla! Unfortunately, the tiling in the shower looked a bit rushed and the ceilings looked a little bubbling as if they were trying to cover up damp patches! That said, the carpet was new, even if the bed settee wasn't (kids said it was the worst sleep over the 9 nights in total we'd been away as it was a little wonky) The bed and room were clean and the furniture inside was modern I would have liked a bigger fridge! All in all we had a great stay there, we only really wanted to sleep there and did end up staying an extra night because we didn't want to go home! Was happy with the friendly staff, just think the rooms need a little bit more care and attention to bring them up to date.... Yes, I'd return! Was a great location and the kids loved the spa and pool even tho it was pretty cool out 😁

We only stayed for one night for the footy match however the rooms were nice, spacious and had a fun design. We had lovely beach views to go with it. Stephanie and Shae from the front desk were both lovely, really helpful and gave a great recommendation for brekky! We will definitely be staying here again.

My husband and I recently spent three nights here while attending an event in Cronulla. Eventhouse has recently been renovated (used to be a Rydges), and they have done a superb job of modernizing it and giving the place a chic beachy vibe. There is an inviting bar and restaurant just off the lobby and an outdoor swimming pool. There is a parking garage underneath the hotel (unlike some places we have recently stayed where it was a 5-10 minute hike to an offsite parking garage). This hotel has a fun vibe - with a surfer and pin up girl in the lifts and fresh pops of aqua, blue and green in the rooms. The bathrooms are obviously newly renovated, with a big self standing walk in shower, double sinks and, again, that fresh pop of color. Our room had a nice balcony with an ocean view. The location really is unbeatable - across the street from the beach, across a different street to the legendary Northie's Bar, next to a charming old movie theater, a one minute walk to the walking mall, a five minute walk to the train station, a short drive to the huge Westfield Miranda shopping mall and within a few minutes walk to many, many restaurants, cafes and bars. Staff were very nice and accommodating. Loyalty club members get a free drink and discounts in the restaurant and bar. I don't give many 5* ratings - but I feel that between the lovely new renovations and the excellent location, Eventhouse deserves it. As long as the price is right, this will be our go to hotel when in this part of Sydney.

Eventhouse, formerly known as the Rydges Hotel is in a perfect location in Cronulla. This is a big plus but there are a number of minuses, noisy area in the early hours as garbage trucks empty tonnes of glass bottles from restaurants and the pub across the road. Rooms are funky but not practical, no desk or chair to do any work or write. Bar/dining is very noisy from the music playing, it is more foreground music, not background music. The staff are very attentive and the bar staff know their wine.

Stayed here for the last 2 nights. Great position looking over the beach. Not a luxurious hotel but clean, modern and well appointed. The furniture is adequate. There is a coffee machine and kettle in the room. We had breakfast included which was good. Both continental breakfast as well as hot breakfast available. Bedroom is small but clean. Staff were helpful and friendly.

I had an overnighter at this great hotel recently. Rooms were great, nice and roomy, I had a view over the ocean and only 1 blocks walk from the beach. What they lack is good housekeeping. Fortunately, i bring my own shampoo, conditioner, bodywash. What was supplied was two hair conditioners and body lotion. If I didnt have my own supply, it would of meant I would have to call down to reception to request it. Not cool

Stayed here as an overnight getaway and thought Cronulla would be nice, which it is. Rooms were nice, sryled nicely, a very beachy feel. Bed was queen which I am sure it said upon booking but small compared to what is on offer at other hotels. Was a bit pricey but I suppose that comes down to location. I thought for the price windows would have been double glazed but just standard window/sliding door, could hear cars beeping their horns quite clearly from the 10th floor. Bathroom was updated. Was disappointed with the TV, it had a white light that shone brightly when the tv was turned off, attempted to try and fix but was too tired. I know i could habe turned it off at the powerpoont but when you are half asleep you generally dont think logically. The block out curtains also only work if positioned correctly, wasn't overly happu to wake up at 7am on a Sunday due to the light that found it's way into the room over the top of the curtain. Look it's not a bad place, I just don't think I would choose to stay there again. Personally think Parkroyal hotels are much better than Rydges....sorry.

Returned to my old him town for a one night stay here and it was fantastic. The renovated rooms are beautiful. When I checked in online I requested a room with best view so I was very pleased when I was allocated a total ocean front room on level 10. Absolutely stunning billion dollar view. Total magic. Staff were very friendly. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for three nights. Staff were very friendly, rooms were great and it was close to everything. Had both a dinner and breakfast here and the food was very good. The Steak was excellent! Nice little bar as well for some quiet drinks with friends. Good facilities for business meetings/conferences as well
