3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed here in Wow week and the main disapointment was that the restaurant was fully booked. Staff didn't really care on front desk, which is to me is in a very odd and unwelcoming position. Room were clean tidy apart from having to star out from the 7th floor at offices. There must be better hotels for the money... More

Spent two nights in this hotel, lovely rooms, nice big bed and nicely laid out bathroom. The hotel was in a great central location, walking distance to the city and the waterfront. The room was spacious. Would use them again next time.

Just one night - for the World of Wearable Art show. Efficient check-in. We arrived early but no hassles leaving our luggage which was in our room when we came back. The facilities in the room were a pleasant surprise - microwave and hotplate - would be great for a few days stay. The bed was superb and lots of... More

Refurbished rooms, pleasant outlook, convenient location and restaurant meals way above average makes Rydges Wellington a good choice in the Capitol. Easy walking distance to the major shopping centre and also to Parliament buildings for a visit as well as the waterfront.

The bed and pillows at Rydges are the most comfortable experienced in a hotel for a long time. Bath and shower a little dated. No shower gel provided, rather a pink liquid body scrub which wasn't particularly pleasant. In an age of travelling light, hotels should focus on providing basics rather than opting for unnecessary alternatives. Traffic noise really evident... More
