Everything was good. But the rooms were never made up to scratch. I would the sign up but I noticed the mirror in the bathroom was never cleaned and we stayed 4 nights and our sheets were never changed nor the pillow cases. I am a clean person so the there was not much to do in my room apart... More

I've stayed in Wellington Rydges for a few years, and I have to say I always feel special when I do stay for a number of reasons. I always get a hand written welcome from the General Manager with a bottle of wine, what a great touch! The food has gotten better and better over the last two years or... More

Good location in CBD - close walking distance to everything. Got a free room upgrade which was a bonus. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice view of the harbour. Nice restaurant downstairs with good food. Be wary of parking- the hotel has limited spaces and they can't be reserved. We had to park in a overnight car park down the... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, and even better that we were able to surprise you with a room upgrade! We do apologise in regards to the parking though, unfortunately being so central also means parking is inevitably limited. We hope this... More

This hotel is right in the CBD and close to the university business campus, ferry terminal and numerous shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and the hotel lobby very welcoming and pleasant. The room was large and modern with very comfortable beds. I will definitely be staying here again.

You cannot fault the friendly staff who assist in every way. The views from the harbour side room were lovely and cityside pretty good. Room size was fine. However if you book a kitchenette let them know at checkin that you will be using it and you want crockery cutlery and pot and pan. Its not automatically in the room.... More

Situated just a short way from the Interislander ferry terminal and a short walk into the centre this hotel was perfectly located. Valet parking was $30 for 24 hours - made things easy breasy for our 1 night stay. And then we get up to the 13th floor (complimentary birthday upgrade) and a it's all very nice - stylish, fab...

I usually stay here when I go to Wellington for various reasons. Familiarity is high on the list of reasons why. I sometimes get the odd minor hiccup with one thing or other - but nothing that would make me go elsewhere. With any accommodation - communication is key. Make sure they know what you expect, and if its not... More

Its not a 5 star hotel but is clean with comfortable beds and friendly staff. However, the restaurant downstairs is excellent. For the first time in my life I stayed at a hotel and ate at the hotel restaurant every night. OK, I was busy. And it was cold and wet outside. But Wellington has great restaurants so it really...

Great hotel; nice room and view. Will definitely stay there again next trip but room for improvement with housekeeping. Room service meals were warm - cold when delivered. Restaurant really cramped and hard to get around; but the staff were friendly, the positioning was really convenient and we really enjoyed our time with you.
