The Ridges Hotel is probably one of the best located hotels in Wellington being with a short walking distance from the Metro Link terminal,the Cable car and Botanical gardens. Fifteen minutes along the waterfront gets you to TePapa museum of New Zealand.Shopping is also close buy the Ridges We had a superior king room on the 12th floor which caught... More

This property has a very friendly staff with good amenities. The room was always cleaned well and the location is perfect for food, shopping and the wharf. The only real downside is when the wind is blowing hard, it makes a good bit of noise which woke me up a few times at night.

On arriving at The Rydges in Wellington, we had driven from Rotorua and parked up plum outside the hotel in rush hour. We struggled to get a space, so, my wife ran in to the reception to get some guidance from the desk. As it happened, the guy behind the counter literally came out from behind the counter and came...

I have now stayed at Rydges twice, for 5 nights each time. The room has always been clean and in good order, and the staff are always courteous and friendly. The room is serviced daily to a high standard. This time I was able to make use of the pool. The water temperature is just perfect for laps or just... More

Decently located, near the city center and with great harbor views. Room was pretty big, with all modern amenities you can expect from such a hotel. Overall - decent choice, would definitely recommend. Tip - ask for a high floor with harbor view.

Got upgraded as stayed 2 nights to harbour view from 13th floor. Excellent. Room clean and tidy and had a kitchenette with microwave & hob ( which we didn't use). Staff friendly and obliging - when asked. Central location. Didn't like shower over bath - not good for anyone who isn't very steady on their feet. Also drawer & cupboard... More

This was an accidental booking, having been bumped from my booked accommodation. Happily, Rydges was much better than my original hotel and prices very reasonable. Staff were courteous and very helpful. Excellent free wi-fi was available, even after check out, so I could continue working in the excellent bar/restaurant (the Portlander) which is located on the ground floor. The hotel... More

Stayed here for 3 days for 4 nations Rugby league Final. Great location for us close to the stadium easy 10 min walk, plus close to lots of attractions. Didn't eat at the hotel but staff were friendly and really have no complaints about anything. First time in Wellington and loved our weekend.

We stayed for five nights and were quite happy with our choice although there were a couple of things that are probably rated lower given our previous accommodation at the Crowne in Auckland and my stay at a Rydges in Sydney. There was free WIFI and we were happily accommodated with a late check out. The hotel is just around... More
