We stayed here on two occasions in December 2014. Both rooms were very spacious with great views of the city. Very comfortable beds (very much needed after a long journey from the UK!) with very friendly and helpful staff. Next to sky point with the harbour only a short walk away. Would definitely stay here again!

I was here for three nights. The location is convenient. It is essentially 'next door' to the sky point. So, if you see a person falling from the sky...be assured they are taking part of the multi-story drop from atop a building and they will survive when the braking is applied. (I inquired about the "drop". I found the cost... More

I stayed at Rydges Auckland for 5 nights in a Deluxe Harbour View King room. Upon arrival it was not what we expected from what was advertised on the website, and the room seemed a lot smaller. We arrived in the late evening and while they knew there would be 3 of us, the room was set up for 2... More

On arrival service was great lovely front counter girls, it all went down hill from there. We went up to our room to find that the pillow cases did not look like they were clean or fresh they were all wrinkly that was just the start... The bedding had not been changed from the last person that was in the... More

The location was perfect for us to see Auckland in the 2 days we had- literally under the sky tower and a 5 minute walk to the harbour. The hotel hasn't got free parking but we didn't really expect a city centre hotel to have. Room was great- really clean and very comfy bed. Staff very firendly- especially Terrance. One... More

Good location, close to main street to grab buses, and the Sky Tower, which has plenty of restaurants. Staff is super friendly and very servicing, however one lady forgot to make a tour reservation for us. That can improve. Room size is good, not huge but not tiny, very clean, smoke free, and noise free. Wifi included in room which... More

An otherwise pleasant stay here nearly went awry at check-in at 3pm in the afternoon when we were told that even though we had booked months ago, there had been an unexpected large group booking made the day before and we would have to be moved to another hotel. The 'good news' according to the receptionist, was that we wouldn't... More

We arrived at 3 pm to check-in to find our room wasn't ready. Check in is officially 2 pm. We paid $28 for valet parking for 24 hours. When we did get to our room, we were unpleasantly surprised with the cleanliness. The bath was over the shower and was mouldy - a good dose of bleach would probably fix... More

The room was clean and neat but this was overshadowed by the staff who clearly had a mandate to milk as much money as possible from guests at every opportunity. We took up the go green offer more for environmental reasons than the $10 off any purchase at the in-house restaurant. We put out a sign on our door after... More
