Stayed here as part of a small conference organised at the hotel.
A warm welcome and seamless check in greeted us on arrival.
Rooms are spacious and modern with all facilities of a 4 1/2 star hotel.
It was nice to see a modern hotel which still has a full sized bath.
The conferencing side of things were well catered for and organised efficiently.
FOOD: The food at Rydges as just supurb! From an absolutely flawless 6 star breakfast offering to wonderful lunch and dinner options, it was really impressive. The atmosphere at the restaurant and bar was warm, cosy and relaxed.
Location is the key to most hotels, and this hotel is located close to the Railway Station and Parliament. As a result, although it may be a lovely walk along the waterfront on a sunny day, it's a bit far to walk at night to and from the entertainment hub of Wellington (Te Papa, Cuba St and Courtney Place).
I REALLY recommend this property, however would advise that you call a taxi to/from restaurants/nightlife as it's a long, cold walk.
