We loved our room, very modern and we felt very comfortable and relaxed. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and efficient, however drink vouchers ( Rydges Priority Guest ) were not offered and I had to ask. Breakfast was great, really enjoyed my omelette and the venison sausages. After breakfast we went for a...

After experiencing helpful and friendly service throughout our tour of New Zealand's South Island, it was a disappointment to stay at the Rydges. It was a well worn, big city hotel where staff were efficient but not as helpful and friendly as our previous experiences. The room was adequate but a bit tired and breakfast was ordinary and expensive. However...

We struggled to get a a couple of rooms during our visit to Wellington recently - calling the Rydges the staff on the phone were extremely helpful and managed to arrange two rooms for us and while its not the cheapest place to stay they did treat us well and the breakfast is worth travelling to Wellington for !!

Our travel agent had made our arrangements for a suite with a harbor view. The 1st suite was somewhat lacking (view) so after returning to the front desk we were placed in a lovely corner suite with both city and harbor views. Very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a very nice size though somewhat dark. The staff in the...

This is a very well located hotel near the waterfront as well as being convenient for the Railway Station and Ferry Terminal. The Reception staff were excellent - very welcoming and took the trouble to phone Interislander to change our ferry booking. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable and included a kitchenette with hob, microwave, crockery and cutlery....

Chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews, but it was definitely not what I was expecting of a 4.5 star hotel. Shabby hallways with stained carpets and scattered debris; strange room amenities (kitchenette but no reading chair?); windows so dirty you can barely see out of them; bathroom floor not mopped; dreadful bed pillows. This is my second stay at...

We had a room on the 13th floor with a lovely harbour view but this view may soon be gone with the building of an office block between the hotel and the harbour line. For a city hotel, the little kitchenette was well equipped but overall the room was small with limited space. Reception staff were very helpful and wifi...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights during a conference.

However, we just loved...
