Thanks so much to the team at Rydges Rotorua. Nothing was a bother, staff were friendly, room amazing ( the spa bath a fabulous bonus), bed comfortable and the bathroom lovely and clean. We were disappointed that there was limited cutlery (teaspoons only) and only mugs to drink out of, no plates or bowls. But overall, wonderful stay. If we... More

The place is really nice and professional. Loved the pool area. Me and my girlfriend didn't eat at their restaurant, but it looked as nice and professional as all the rest. It's also well located even for someone who doesn't drive. If I could say something, is that the pillows could be a bit better. Still, I would surely stay... More

To be honest I had expected more of a Rydges hotel, but not having stayed at one before I could be wrong. Beds were amazing but very disappointed with peeling paint above the small square shower - so much more could be done with a shower room. There was a spa bath in a side area of the balcony which...

Nice average hotel. Location was good, within walking distance of restaurants etc.. Room was nice, but nothing to get carried away with. We were travelling from Auckland to Wellington, this was a stopping point. One night was enough.

I spent one night with my adult daughter in a twin deluxe spa room. The first room we were allocated didn't suit us as we had requested a room overlooking the racecourse and this one overlooked the car park. However it was no problem to switch rooms and we were assisted with this, although had to settle for the third... More

Whenever we need accommodation in Rotorua, we always stay at Rydges. The rooms are perfect, the food is beautiful and the facilities (ie: pool/spa, gym) are just what we need when we get away. Love it!

Comfortable and good size room with separate bedroom. Spa bath in separate front room overlooking race track. Bathroom tired and could do with refurbishment. Bed was excellent. Nice and warm - obviously thermally heated. Good value for money

Our stay was outstanding. Front Desk Staff were very good, likewise Bar and Restaurant Staff so I imagine that staff behind the scenes are equally very good. Room was large, well appointed and comfortable. The heated pools, a complimentary drink, and Dinner in the Atrium was a grand finale to the day. Considering its modest charges its a "must stay"...
