We decided to stay at Rydes as it has a pool, which was pleasant. The entry and facilities were suitable, the room was very standard.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I have stayed here on a number of occasions previously and on each it was really good. We typically book the suite which is roomy and modern which is probably why I am surprised that when booking the Deluxe King, the room was very dated. Most of the cabinetry, bathroom etc were straight out of the 80s with the toilet even having a park public toilet feel to it with the metal backing and black flush button. Staff were good as usual. I cannot comment on facilities as they are all closed under Covid (rules??). Parking is not cheap as always but I knew that going in. Overall ok. Happy I got a good deal as I would have been disappointed paying more.
