Recent guest reviews
Camperdown Rydges is fairly old and basic and priced accordingly. If you're looking to stay 10min walk up to the RPA there doesn't seem to be anything this low priced within walking distance. There is a bus into the city out the front of the hotel. It takes about ten minutes to the city. This is a useful budget hotel.
Good location and very nice staff, helpful and kind. Rooms definitely need a renovation as they looks quite old. Carpet and bathroom need to be redone as soon as possible I should add. WiFi is awful !! Several food outlet near by.
This hotel is very close to everything. If you have appointments at RPA Hospital it is only a short walk. Plenty of places to eat around there at great prices and heaps on your plate. Two things wrong with this hotel. (1) Air Con is set to one temp. all year round which makes it cold and cannot warm it up when the weather is cold outside. At the time we were complaining about it at the front desk so was someone else, they said it couldn't be changed. (2) Car parking is $25 per night, but it is the same everywhere around the district.
I stay here when visiting the city. An older style hotel with large size rooms. Very accessible to the city and transport. Surprisingly quiet given so close to Broadway. Reasonably priced. Underground parking. Close to the hospital.
We stayed there 28 April 2017 in room 418. Cons - Pricey for what you get at $269 - Out dated furnitures. Age very visible. - Pool not heated - Breakfast menu is good but the meats were bunched together in one container ( bacon and sausage) which you don't normally see in other hotels. The hard boiled eggs were either over cooked or under cooked (have photos). - One elevator was not level with the floor (Tripping hazard) - Parking is Pricey at $25 even if location is considered - Luggage trolley is a tad big for the elevator. It barely fit. - Access to pool from the 1st floor is dodgy. Pros - Pleasant Reception. Very kind of them to give us an early check in as we arrived from a 4 hr drive from central west. - Yes, the room and bath are out dated but they are clean. We slept well. - Sheets smells right. Pillows alright. - Beds ok. - Very near restaurants. - Conveniently near to RPA Hospital and nearby clinics. - Breakfast crew were pleasant with their service. - Aircon is good. - Free WIFI (well done). Recommendation. If not for an appointment in the hospital, I would not have booked here. The price does not reflect the product. I just console myself that I paid for the convenience.
Ok to use as a base. We moved the bedside to discover a cherry ripe wrapper from a previous guest, lots of thick black hair everywhere and what appeared to be snot/phlegm on the bathroom roof. The clothes wire in the bathroom was rusty/gooey, I couldn't hang my daughters wet tee-shirt on it. Room service was very over priced for a ceasar salad (lettuce & lots of mayo with an egg on top), butter chicken was tasty though. Close to bus stops into the city, circular quays only 25 minute bus ride. Lady at check in was very helpful with info on Opal cards for public transport. 3 nights week before easter $624 was ok value if room had been cleaner.
I find it hard to review this hotel, at which I've stayed several times, and accept the less than positive comments made by others. The positives are the location, the very comfortable beds and the friendly and efficient staff. I had an issue with the TV, reported it to the desk and within a few hours a brand new TV was installed. However, overall the fittings are tired and detract from the positives. I recall a statement that a major refurbishment was to be undertaken and I am hopeful this will be sooner rather than later. But if you just want a comfy bed in a convenient location and can overlook worn carpet and dull paint, this will suit you. I'll continue to stay here.
The service was excellent however the rooms were very dated and and the bathroom was antiquated,both lifts failed and we had to wait a long time and go up in the service elevator not really ideal when you are tied
Just a short walk to Sydney University which was the basis of our stay. Close to Newtown and Alexandria which is full of great, cafes and shops. Right on the doorstep of RPA. The room was basic but served the purpose.
The hotel is tired, over priced and lacking any quality. The staff were friendly and helpful but couldn't can't make up for the poor state of the hotel. No mini bar, mound in the shower and overall in desperate need of a refurb.
