I've stayed at rydges several times now and find it to be great place to base yourself if traveling for work. The rooms are a good size and you can get a ground floor room if you ask well in advance. It is central to town and has good parking. Lp

A modern hotel built approximately two years ago. The room we occupied was large, spacious and it provided good comfort for one night. It was functional but lacking in both character and interesting features. It did provide a free car park and was located not too distant from the pop up Cathedral and was just a short walk to the Start-up container area and River Avon. As a one night stopover it was fine but I wouldn't choose to stay for any longer.

We stayed 4 nights and don't have any complaints.
The hotel has a gem in JARED who is part of reception. We were in contact before we arrived and he sent me information on tours we were interested in.
Upon arrival he was at the front desk and booked us fabulous tours... Akoroa for a full day and a 4 winery tour with lunch.
He always had a smile an his face and was so helpful.
The room was okay but the bathroom was tiny. It was very clean. Did not find the bed comfortable.
HAPPY hour was good.
Had dinner at Bloody Mary's in the hotel Sat night. The food was excellent. There was a glitch with the starters so the host brought us FABULOUS sundaes to compensate.
The location is good. It was a walk to get anywhere, but totally doable.

Had a lovely stay here. Interesting and unique bath accessories (I got incredibly excited reading the labels). Breakfast buffet was lovely with a varied selection (cute glass bottles for the juices!). Staff were really friendly and helpful in guiding us throughout our stay. Nearest supermarket was a bit of a walk (12 minute stroll) but an enjoyable one. No complaints; would come back :)
