3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Customer service at reception was average not that welcoming could barely crack a smile. Our room had a very strong smell of paint as there was work being done on our floor. Staff didn't seem to care no suggestion of perhaps moving to another floor, no empathy.

We got a harbour view room which is worth asking for. This is a busy hotel with lots of 'people processing' which is to be expected in the capital city. The staff were friendly and helpful. the valet car parking is essential

We were booked for room only. Our room was described as a room apartment which meant we had a bit more than a basic hotel room - a fridge, sink but no real cooking and clothes washing facilities. We had the option of choosing not to have maid service whilst we were staying which we opted for. We were charged... More

They have their own car parking and they will valet park for you. Cost a not inconsiderable £15 overnight so not cheap, but then parking in this busy city is very limited. Rail station 200 yards away and also very near the waterfront. Staff well informed and helpful

Hi there, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review! Unfortunately, as you've said, parking is very limited in the central city, but we do our best to accommodate our Guests or even give directions to nearby parking buildings - although the price of these parking buildings is still generally more expensive than our valet service...

We choose this hotel for the simple fact we were travelling with children and they were offering free breakfast for children as an incentive to book. We were not disappointed with the rooms or the food. We definitely received value for money. We had booked a harbour view room unfortunately this was lost in booking translation, when we approached reception... More

The room was ok but had stains on the lampshade and arm chair. The toilet smelt as though it had been recently used when we arrived. Otherwise the room was ok although we couldn't work out how to use the air con properly. We also didn't ask, just turning it off. The sauna was good and that the light didn't... More

Ridges Wellington is in a great location overlooking the harbour and with harbour front bars and restaurants a few minutes walk away. The rooms are very spacious with many having harbour views. There is a little kitchen area equipped with a microwave, sink and toaster as well as the usual fridge. The hotel restaurant was expensive and when ordering a... More

Having stayed in the Rydges in Auckland we thought that we knew what to expect. However, this was quite different with a better layout, good medium sized comfortable and with a well-placed view of the harbour and town. It has a cooking area if required. The room we stayed in was a Harbour View room. There is a nice bar... More

Spacious and clean room with a good view of the hills from my room. Near and short distance walk to the conference venue at shed 6 of the quay. Would recommend others to stay if they are going to Wellington.
