Family Trip

We decided at the last minute to head to Canberra for a family trip to see the War Memorial, Art Galleries etc, We found 'Ridges' online. From the time we arrived the staff were efficient and friendly. Having 2 boys and unsure of the weather we decided on Ridges because of the fact it had a pool and was walking distance to Restaurants and Cafe's and not far from Parliament House etc. It had a bar and a restaurant. The restaurant was not open during the time we were there but we could order food via the bar if we required. The bar service was a little slow and it seemed they were not in any hurry. One night the fellow on duty was eating his dinner out the back while there were customers waiting at the bar. There was a bit of mould on some tiles around the shower in our room and the bathroom was in need of an update but in general the rooms and hotel were very clean and tidy. Excellent Reception staff. There is reasonably priced parking available.

Family had a great time.

Hotel was great except for a funny smell in the room when it was left closed up. War Memorial was a fantastic day out.Found one of the best Chinese Restaurants I have ever been to at Manuka.Family really enjoyed the trip.

Try the Ginseng Chinese Restaurant at Manuka, great food & than finish off with fresh gelato straight across the road from the restaurant.

Comfort Plus

I so enjoyed my stay. Clean rooms..friendly and helpful staff. My only gripe about my stay would be the room service meals. I order twice and both meals were unsatisfactory. Even though it took only about 10 minutes for my meals to come....each meal was cold apart from the chips I had with the burger. Hot and Yum they were. I would more than likely return and I would recommend the Hotel to others.

The War Memorial was amazing. We stayed for the Last Post. It made you so proud to be Australian and Ii shed a tear as the Last Post was played out by bugle.

Room comfort

I stayed in Room 128 and found the air conditioning colder than I would normally have tolerated. I was unable to adjust even though I had it on the highest level. I used a heater

There is no Public Transport. Taxis were expensive if travelling further than the City centre. Also, taxi costs were cheaper on the return journey (even though booking were made for all journeys)

Perfect winter Gateaway

Thank you for such great accomodation. Stayed for 3 days at executive spa room. We just had problems with the key card which takes time before let us open the door. Good location - close to everything. Very spacious room that my 2 children got plenty of space to play around. My husband loved the spa.

best location you could find

For a weekend getaway you can not look past this location. With extremely close proximity to museums art gallery's market's and parliament. All within 2-4 blocks ,Which make for a great getaway for the couples who just want to spend time together.

The tepenyaki restaurant just down the road has extremely poor costumer service . where as the Chinese restaurant across the road on the outside dose not Look inviting . The inside the food and the service is truly 1st class , with a genuine wish to make your meal and experience as enjoyable as possible .I would without hesitation recommend the experience of eating here.

Good family hotel

This was a large, clean and tidy hotel but lacked that something special feel. Bathrooms are a little dated but clean. It was possible to walk to many of the special buildings that Canberra has to offer; National Gallery, High Court, National Library and Parliament House, from this Hotel. The beds were very comfortable!!!
