Friendly staff, had everything we needed. Very accommodating with an infant. Good location. GREAT restaurant. Bummer had to pay for parking that's all - but pretty standard for Wellington I think Expensive but a safe bet for your money

Free wifi and accommodating of any specific requirements. Rydges Wellington is a finely tuned machine and a safe bet for a comfy bed and refreshing evening in Wellington. Most rooms have a... More

For a start when we thought we were booking direct with the hotel for a special rate of $187 turned out to be $269. God knows what the currency was on the internet but thoroughly misleading and duty manager Brendon totally unsympathetic. Nobody to assist with bags. Room airless and a/c very noisy as was the construction next door in... More

Fabulous, friendly staff, they couldn't have done more to help me during my stay. Lovely room, very comfy bed and clean bathroom. The conference team were excellent. Everything was set up perfectly and the food provided during the conference was excellent.

Liked the service, it is really nice. Just the baked beans I had this morning were smelling off. I wasn't really sure when I had it until I end up having tummy bug. Rest was all ok and counter staff was friendly.

I arrived for business at 7am of my booking, reception kindly stored my bag, when I returned later to check in they had placed it in my room, being a city hotel obviously not all four walls have views but given the standard of the room this wasn't a bother at all, I had a long day so opted to...

Check in took a bit longer as we changed rooms to a corner room we wanted. The room itself is a smaller room but you have a small balcony and a great view. It comes with a regular shower instead of a bathtub. The bed is too small for two people and the blankets are very, very thin. The location... More

Best steakhouse on the lower North Island. Great rooms and excellent facilities. Excellent for smokers as there is a bar with a heated and covered outside area! Taxis always available outside too which is great.

We had a great stay, with breakfast being a must! Would recommend joining the hotel loyalty program as this gives you free late check (just make sure you remember to tell them - as we forgot, however they were good about this) only downside is for people used to sleeping in a queen sized bed the doubles in the rooms...

The hotel is centrally located, walking distance from Bulebridge ferry terminal which was very convenient for us. The room was perfect - harbour view. And the free breakfast buffet was one of the best! The hotel staff were very accommodating. Highly recommended!
