Great central city location. Room was neat, comfy bed and pillows and the buffet breakfast was awesome! We enjoyed our short stay and looking forward to our next stay on the 29th and 30th of this month.

I stayed at Rydges with my four year old daughter as unfortunately she had to have an operation in Wellington. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The room also had a microwave and small stove all very clean. We also chose this hotel because it had a pool to keep my little one entertained.... More

Had a fantastic stay at Rydges, Wellington. I was there for a wedding where the food and service was extremely good, catering for both children and vegetarians well. Coming from overseas I needed an adaptor which they brought up quickly. The room was spacious and comfortable with the pillow menu being an extra added bonus. Thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely... More

It was an unplanned trip. We arrived at the railway station with our bags and no bookings for accommodation. The backpackers hostel across the railway station had no rooms for my family, which turned out to be a good thing as we chanced upon Rydges Wellington further down the street. The price for the room, which is spacious enough for... More

The hotel is in a great location as it is very close to the CBD, also the railway station and waterfront area. Everything in downtown Wellington is within walking distance. The room we had was spacious and had all the amenities we required. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was a decent size as well. We were on a... More

Visiting family had a comfortable one-night stay at Rydges. Regret not knowing about the pool and sauna, but that was our fault. Recommend. Good security, pleasant and helpful staff and obviously a popular place. Great location for the parliament end of WLG

Very nice hotel. Clean and big room with corner windows. Well equiped kitchenette Helpfull staff. No problems with valet parking. Breakfast included although we didn't have time to taste it. I would recommend it for a city break or longer stay.
