Stayed here for two nights to attend a conference held at the hotel. Check in was fast and easy and the staff were very helpful with answering our questions about the area. The hotel is within walking distance to a good selection of restaurants. Our room was spacious clean, and the beds comfortable. Would stay here again.

Rydges is a large, well located hotel in Wellington. It is easy to find,- near the harbour and railway station. Check-in was quick and efficient. Our room on the 8th floor had a good view of the harbour. The room had most things we needed,- but was missing a mug when we arrived (one was brought quickly) there was a...

Really nice hotel, situated about 4-6 blocks from the central part of the CBD. It had a Valet service that is $30 a night (no other parking option available) and the staff brought our bags up for us, which is nice but not something I ever look for in a hotel (I would rather a cheaper room). Small room, nicely...

I usually stay at this hotel when visiting Wellington and find it reliably good, with clean, comfortable rooms and good service. On this occasion, the service was outstanding, in particular from Keisha on reception who went out of her way to find me a room when checking in early and who was very helpful and friendly throughout my stay.

We came from staying at rydges in Auckland and had a good experience. When we arrived in Wellington at 6 pm there was No one to help with bags. That's ok, we are a self sufficient family. Was then told the valet was not available, "sorry, it's full, we only have one very small space left". We rented a Toyota...

We stayed in a King Superior Room and were lucky to have a 180 degree view of the waterfront to the Beehive. The bathroom was well appointed although being over 6 foot made the shower over the bath a little awkward to negotiate. We chose a package which included the buffet breakfast which was nothing short of excellent. The choice...

This was a great hotel - excellent location for the city and waterfront. The pool and spa were a bonus and the beds very comfortable. I also found the staff very pleasant. Breakfast was great with a good variety and the restaurant and bar excellent.

The good: Great comfy bed, good location - very close to shops and restaurants, friendly staff. The bad: Curtains wouldn't close properly, shower went freezing cold half way through, room service food was cold (although it was delivered very quickly). I've stayed in better in Wellington and can't imagine I'd come back here again. Dinner in the Portlander was nice...
