This was my second stay at Rydges Auckland. I will not be back. They have recently refurbished the hotel but have a huge problem with the air conditioning. We checked in at 2pm the room was warm but I just thought it was the afternoon sun hitting the window. When the a/c reader was displaying 28 degrees at 8pm. I... More

Booked in for concert early and got a pretty good rate including breakfast. Room was Ok, but clearly an older one with marks on the door, vanity and carpet a bit tattered round the edges. Shower water went everywhere which was a pain - though nice shower Our mini Bar was not restocked, even once i rang and asked for... More

This hotel sets a high standard in everything. The friendliness of all staff was something we noted in particular. From the moment we booked in to the moment we left we experienced a consistent quality of high service and friendliness from everyone. If we go back to Auckland, we will stay with the Rydges.

Iv stayed here on more then one occasion for business. I love the friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble and that is what will keep me going back. The rooms are always perfect and clean. Breakfast is always the highlight with a huge selection. Would highly recommend

This hotel is centrally located. Offers free unlimited wifi (something in NZ still is considered an extra in most hotels) Rooms are comfortable and breakfast buffet is comprehensive. The hotel is very popular for parties and meetings, so expect a busy lobby and some noise in the first hours of the night during the weekend. It's a good intermediate category... More

I stayed at Rydges while my mum was having surgery. It was a fantastic place and very handy to town and easy to get a taxi for my necessary travels to Auckland Hospital each day. The staff are helpful and there was one standout man who was the concierge. He took great care of me and made sure I was... More

This is our second stay at the Rydges and its a good, comfortable hotel with easy access to the city and the best buffet breakfast (eggs benedict!). Easy to get to, great valet service, happy to recommend.

I've stayed at Rydges many times in the past but this was the first time since their refurbishment. It looks a lot better than it used to - it feels rather different from a lot of hotels in Auckland CBD. It was bright and airy and the breakfast buffet was awesome. We had a lot of drinks delivered to our... More

It's very difficult to separate mid range city hotels. This one ticks most of the boxes and is convenient for the city centre and harbour. Nothing was outstanding but yet I have no major criticisms. I'd have some quibbles about breakfast which after 7.15 tended to be over-run by coach parties and hence I'd advise an early start. I'd also... More
