Everything was excellent from the moment I arrived. The desk staff are really friendly, and I have to say the Head Concierge is the best I have ever encountered. Really goes out of his way to help a new arrival to New Zealand organise travel plans, sightseeing, business transfers, the works. The restaurant is great (admittedly the breakfast staff are... More

The hotel was central, staff friendly and efficient. Room 823 had bathroom sink with two or three nasty large cracks in sink. Not what I would expect at this level. Adaquate overall, -not impressive. Certainly not Stamford Plaza impressive.

Tucked up the hill from queen street but still close enough to walk to the many pubs and bars and the casino. Rooms have everything you need , quite spacious and clean. We had a view of the Harbour which you have to pay extra to get. The staff were lovely and helpful. The bar had almost everything , not... More

Great hotel, very central to the waterfront and other Auckland attractions. Good service and helpful staff. Nice restaurant in the hotel and very reasonably priced. For those looking to shop, this hotel is also very close.

Besides being a nice clean hotel close to restaurants, hop on hop off bus and piers, the staff were all helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how they went out of their way, on their on time, to go to the post office, check the cost of mailing an item I forgot in the room, e-mailing the cost to me... More

I must say, I haven't stayed in many hotels over my lifetime but I know enough to know a good from the bad. Rydges hotel is fantastic. I stayed one night in a standard room, and it was spacious, clean, well stocked, and had a lot of information regarding their services and other FAQs that were easy to find and... More

In Auckland this is hard to beat. Good location, close to Sky Tower, casino, viaduct. Free Wi-fi, rainfall showers, comfortable bed, friendly staff. Breakfast selection was very good too, all you would normally expect plus some nice extra's as well.

On arrival the receptionist was very nice and helpful. We had booked online and got a rate including parking and breakfast. Free Wifi in room as well, a real bonus. The view from our room was an apartment next door, so the view was lots of washing on balconies. The other window we could see The Heritage Hotel. The only... More

Rydges is an excellent hotel to stay at. The location in the city is perfect, just a block down from Sky Tower makes it convenient to walk to most places in the city. The V & A Cafe around the corner makes a fantastic breakfast and coffee to start the day, while the Midnight Express restaurant was so good we... More

Nice, modern room. Early check-in accommodated after a long day of traveling from DC. Breakfast in hotel well worth the expense. Walk to the harbor nearby for some lovely restaurants. Weirdly, one night power was turned off on several floors for apparent maintenance. No lights, no phone or anything at 1am. Weirder yet, I was told this was scheduled when... More
