We had a fantastic stay at the Rydges. The service we received was to a very high standard and we would specially like to give our thanks to James in particular. He was exceptionally professional and helpful in rectifying the problem with the executive suite we booked for. Very impressed with how easy it was to book a room through... More

We stayed here in November in a Superior room and were very impressed. The shower was amazing and the bedroom and fantastic view over Auckland Harbour a real treat. It was next door to the Sky Tower too which was a bonus

Our room overlooked an apartment block so we had no privacy and had to keep the thick blinds shut at all times which was a shame. The room was small but ok with free wifi but the bathroom was very very small. The reception staff were polite and helpful. We had dinner at STK, the food and service were at... More

Rydges is in a central location very close to the Sky Point Tower & casino. It is only a few minutes walk to the waterfront. The room was fine and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast is nice but not as good as in Rydges Wellington. My room 519 had a view into the apartment building across the alley - the... More

We got married at the Rydges Auckland last Saturday. It was the most fantastic day/night. The staff at the hotel right from our check in, the concierge, the waiting staff at the ceremony & reception and in fact just everyone we dealt with were at the top of their game and just a pleasure. Nothing we asked for was ever... More

This was the first hotel we stayed at in NZ. Very nice hotel, the room was comfortable, common areas very nice, the breakfast a strong asset -especially the smoothies shots-, the location perfect and staff members very kind, as all people in this amazing country. Wifi was also a plus!

Clean and comfortable. I like that the windows can be opened and the airconditioning adjusted to suit - there's nothing worse than a stuffy hotel room. It was very quiet and we were unaware of the other guests - just how we like it. Great location, easy walk to shops, attractions, restaurants and transport. We didn't eat in the restaurant,... More

Easy check in and out. The normal rooms come in two sizes, one has two double beds, the other has one double bed. The restaurant is weird, charging for meat by the gram (ie 15cents a gram) but then telling you on the menu you will be getting 200grams. Just tell me the bloody price! Restaurant staff also slightly slow.

Overnight stay on business in this CBD Hotel. The building is not new but the refurbishments have kept the Hotel and the rooms in good condition without being too flash. Effortless check-in and check-out with friendly front desk staff. My room on 13th floor had two queen beds. Bathroom was small but adequate and clearly been refurbished in the last... More
