We stayed one night here in February, with a great deal which included off-site parking and 2 for 1 breakfast. The room was very comfortable, with 2 double beds. We were only there for one night, and weren't bothered abut booking a room with a view. Breakfast was fantastic. Location is good with the bars and restaurants on the waterfront... More

I loved this hotel just because of the breakfasts! Such a selection and really high quality. The room was large and modern and got plenty of sun. The hotel is quiet and in a good location for Lambton Quay, and a 15 minute walk to Courtney Place/Cuba St. We got complimentary drinks on arrival and wifi access was free. The... More

Paid NZD$500.00 plus for 2 nights in a supposedly superior room with service to match, how wrong that proved to be.The room was no more than average, small and plain but did present a harbour view as promised. There was more room allocated to a kitchenette and bathroom which made the living area small and cramped.Some channels on the TV... More

I stay here when in Wellington on business. Very happy with room and service. Good location. The restaurant is excellent. See no reason to stay elsewhere. No complaints from this reviewer. Close to the water also.

Wellington is a favourite destination and we make at least an annual trip to coincide with an All Black test. Over the last decade have stayed in a number of hotels but have never stayed at the Rydges. We decided to do this for the ABs BOK test on sept 13. Great decision because the hotel offers great views of... More

We've stayed at this place a couple times now. It has always been very well appointed and clean. The team there have been very helpful at all times. This is our go to for any of our Wellington visits.

Just spent the weekend here to see friends on my way home from Melbourne. Always a lovely stay at Rydge's, they treat customers well and have lots of little extras to make things better and most important of all their staff can smile! I had just come from a five star hotel in Melbourne that could take lessons from Rydge's... More

For a business traveller, checking in just prior to dinner and checking out straight after breakfast, the hotel was excellent. Front desk service was easy, polite and helpful. The room on 15th floor was also excellent. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and the bathroom well equipped and large. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. I... More

First time here and liked it. Rooms are very good with two double beds in mine (read as extra space for clothes) lovely decor and in room safe. The bar is a busy place and great spot to catch up after work or a flight. Breakfast is expensive but beautiful. Barista coffee is unfortunately extra. The breakfast choices are a... More

Excellent Location, easy to walk to all of the best locations and restaurants in the city, beautiful views of the water off the balcony. Excellent food choices at the hotel. We were able to walk to the waterfront and museum easily from the hotel.
