Spent 2 nights at the Rydges, overall a good experience. Fairly clean rooms with modern amenities. Internet connection was quite patchy for wifi so something to take note off if you're going to be using this svc. We qualified for free access as members. As we checked out to go somewhere else and then came back again. We had 2... More

Nice room but not a luxury room, perhaps a bit plain. Breakfast was very nice with many items to choose from. Make sure to try their miniature smoothies. There were annoying fruit flies in the breakfast area but a fairly minor problem. It is worth getting the included buffet. Location excellent. You are right in the middle of downtown and... More

Rydges, A good hotel to start our tour with. Pros: big, clean room, very good mattress and pillows ( I like both of them firm and not on the saggy side), free wifi! Bathroom was spacious and clean. Centrally located, and within walking distance to most sights. Breakfast is pretty decent, usual hot buffet selection, as with most hotels. Concierge... More

My husband and I stayed here recently on a Sunday night and were very happy with what the hotel has to offer. Quick check in and check out service, with friendly, pleasant staff. Our room on the 11th floor was nicely appointed, had a view of the harbour, nice furnishings, comfy bed and a spacious bathroom which was spotless. We... More

I was initially disappointed with the quiet room that I chose when checking in online. I requested 3 things: more pillows (check), more hangers (nope), nice view (nope). But upon reflection, I got a pretty good room and facilities for the Booking.com price that I paid which included a good buffet breakfast. Staff were very friendly. I initially thought that... More

Stayed here on vacation for three nights in mid April 2015. Hotel facilities and condition was excellent. Staff was great. Location is outstanding. Only complaint is the free Wi-Fi which was so slow it was basically useless.

I was in AKL for business and the hotel location is very central which made moving around easy. And the food was good too - The Cut restaurant had a good range of dinner options. Just weird that they didn't have shower caps. :-)
