Stayed for 2 nights, it was great. Very clean and comfortable. Free wifi which is very important. Hotel staff were friendly. Only thing I wasnt happy with was at 3.30pm the staff tried to come in and make up our room, far too late in the day

We could not believe that the restaurant was closed for three nights consecutively and breakfast was moved to a different floor which did not have a coffee machine or provide the essential morning cappuccino.The walls are paper thin so every movement or noise was heard in our room. A lot of tour companies stay there so we were woken up... More

This hotel is shabby and pokey. The elevators are rickety and slow. The carpets are threadbare and the hallways have a remarkably undulating terrain. But it isn't just that the place is old and poorly maintained. In our room, the sink faucet was leaking around the base so everything on the counter got soaked. The wardrobe doors also didn't open...

An absolutely stunning location and view from our room across the lake was fabulous. However the room furnishings need updating - they were adequate but not top class- pine fittings showing signs of wear and curtain linings torn. Good points - comfy bed , big towels, free wifi, rooftop swimming pool. Pool area has a hot tub but the spa... More

Yes the hotel is a little tired looking, but the staff are attentive the rooms are clean and for the price we paid per night the room was bigger, than the hotel we stayed at in Dunedin. The house bar has happy hour every night and the tap beers were 1/2 price, the bar snacks are a good size, breakfast... More

I never leave comments usually. but I have to say something because it was the most horrible hotel I have ever stayed. The staffs here are very RUDE AND MEAN. Also, the hotel is very old and even smelly.. it smells like old closet which has been never cleaned for decades. If you are considering to stay this hotel I... More

Positioned in an idyllic location, Rydges has the potential to be a sensational hotel. Unfortunately the rooms are in desperate need of an upgrade and ours looked nothing similar to the website version.

I am surprised by some of the reviews here. We have a very comfortable suite overlooking the lake, the bed was very comfortable and the place was very clean. It is all a bit dated and needs to be modernised but for the price and the location, it is excellent. The breakfast is very good but the room feels like... More

although it is a bit old, it is a good pick for those who want to stay right opposite the lake. We stayed here for three days. Our stay was very good and we did not experience any faulty service or any other problems. Ours was a superior king size room with lake view. Mini bar was well stocked. Best... More
