4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was great. The staff are helpful and the pool and gym hardly had anyone in them so you can use it till you just had enough. Rooms are being cleaned and supplies replenished everyday. The bathroom needs a bit of updating though. All in all a good place to stay with a very reasonable price.

We stayed at the Rydges whilst staying in Rotorua. This hotel is spectacular. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The restaurant was lovely with absolutely delicious food for both the adults and children. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. Would love to come back and stay again.

If you want a 'big hotel' experience (big for Rotorua that is!) with large atrium and restaurant area, bar, breakfast and weekend dinner buffets (kids eat free), indoor swimming pool, gym, room service, big rooms with helpful staff and good location than this is place for you. Rydges is not the newest/most modern accommodation in Rotorua but we really enjoyed... More

We got a great deal on this hotel, and booked a spa room. The room was relatively old, but everything was clean, worked well and the room was massive. The spa bath included in our room was a good size and in its own room/conservatory looking out across the racecourse area by the hotel, but still fairly private. It is... More

My husband, myself and our 18 month old spent one night here recently. The room (twin spa room) was great - very warm in this cold winter, the high ceilings add an illusion of more space, a deck, and of course the spa - in its own separate room. We were there for an event in Rotorua, and 3 other... More
