The room we had was beautifully clean & had a good view of the area. We were pretty disappointed to arrive in horrible weather, an hour and a half after our pre - organised check in time (specified a 2pm check - in but arrived at 3.30pm) only to find that our room wasn't ready. No one took our phone... More

Rydges Wellington is hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed at, comparing to hotels including the Hilton in Sydney, Crown in Melbourne, etc. Rydges Wellington executes everything very well: great staff (and make everything look easy), great food (for breakfast, what would you like? They have it all), real bartenders (mixed to perfection) and impeccable rooms.

I've stayed at Rydges Wellington a few times for work and it has never disappointed. I like the central location, the beds, the pool but what really stands out is the service and the restaurant on the ground floor. My stay last week was especially good. My wife joined me in Wellington for a change of scenery after the recent... More

I recently stayed at Rydges, and even though my travel agent had managed to mess up my booking, the Rydges staff were awesome and helped me sort it out. The room was really nice and clean, comfy bed, great location, and the restaurant Portlander was amazing! Well worth a visit to Portlander even if you are not staying in the... More

Stayed here for a weekend in July 2014 and it was fabulous. The room was spacious and incredibly quiet considering its downtown location. The bed was comfortable & the bathroom was a good size. The location of the property was perfect to explore Wellington. The biggest asset the hotel has is the staff - they were all friendly and made... More

Stayed here recently Hotel room was average not bad .Had to ask for it to be made up on first day but mistakes happen no dramas, I would like to say that I stay away over 100 nights away a year and the breakfast in this place is truly exceptional compared to the usual fare and deserves a special mention...

I packed my favourite shirt but forgot it needed cuff links. When I started dressing I realized my mistake. I rushed down to the front desk and found out that no store would be open in time for my 830am meeting. No problem.... the Front Desk Manager gave me his cuff links off of his shirt. I will never stay... More

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
