I stayed at Rydges on Monday the 10th of April in preparation for a conference held "in-house" the next day! From the check in with Jimmy to printing out materials through Phillip at concierge, the staff were always attentive and ready to serve. During the conference break i was fortunate to reconnect with the Hotel Manager, (Simon White) who remembered...

We booked into Rydges for one night going down to walk the Queen Charlotte Track and then for three nights after the walk on our way back home. On the first night we had an 11th floor room looking out towards the city and Parliament House). We were allocated a double double room which consequently felt very cramped. On the...

Standard hotel in the business area, very near (walking distance) the Blue bridge ferry station. Receptionist was nice and helpful. Rooms small to average size. Ok for 2 but crowded for 4. Other wise clean with a small kitchenette and finally, the only place we found that had a in room safe deposit box. I guess this was the only...

Quiet, fantastic bed with perfect pillows. Excellent location. There is nothing to fault. Breakfast options are available, if you prefer not to eat the buffet breakfast. The food was good. It is a short walk from the cable car and easy to find from the ferry. Very near the vibrant centre of Wellington and also Te Papa. Highly recommend.

We had room 1305 which was high up and gave great views over the bay and city, as well as having a small balcony, large kitchen and desk. Parking was 30 NZ...

It is located in a great location near the train station. Rooms are not too big. It has a induction cooker and microwave in the room. Room is comfortable and it has a nice bar and great breakfast restaurant at the ground floor.

This hotel is well situated for all that the wonderful city of Wellington has to offer. Near the cable car for the Botanic Gardens and just a short stroll form the waterfront. We stayed 2 nights and got upgraded to a deluxe harbour view room.

We stayed 2 nights here to have a quick impression of windy Wellington before we cross the South islands. This property is strategically located. From the main train station you just literary cross the crossing and walk straight and there you have it. Very close as well to the waterfront. Maybe they are so overwhelmed with their good location and...
