Great location, just a short walk to good restaurants and where I happened to be working. As a whiskey drinker I was impressed by the wide range available at the bar and the knowledge of the Scottish bartender. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has the perfect location for a city tour in Wellington, 500 meters of the ferry from the south island, and in the center of the City. The hotel has good facilities nice rooms with a view over the habour.

We paid $319 for a King Deluxe room for a night away in Wellington . When I called and asked about the room - the woman said it was an amazing view. When we arrived the view was terrible - we had a small view of Wellington harbour - but the main view was directly into the back of the...

Really convenient location for the purpose of my trip which was a conference at Victoria University's Pipitea campus. But also convenient to the waterfront, Te Papa Museum and the shopping areas. Piyush was particularly helpful re getting a taxi in the early hours of the morning on the Sunday we left. Thank you!

We were looking for some place close to the train station. This is a block and a half away. Check in was very smooth. The room was nicely appointed. There is even some equipment for light cooking like a couple of burners. Although we are taking the KiwiRail scenic journey tomorrow I can see that this hotel would be great...

Rydges was perfect as a base in Wellington for a day or two. Staff were helpful, rooms were clean and the buffet breakfast was the best I experienced whilst in New Zealand! The hotel does have a corporate feel to it so I wouldn't recommend for couples looking for anywhere romantic, but great for friends, business trips, and families.

We were fortunate to receive an upgrade to a suite for our week long stay at the Rydges. We had a few very windy days - and the all glass wall hotel held up well! We had to call a few different times to have our toiletries / amenities and towel restocked. Loved the free in-room washing machine and dryer...

The Air conditioning would not work (Which was fixed) Remote for the TV would not work and there was orange scum where the shower door meet the bath and the wall. The room (806) was also noisier than you would expect. Apart from that it is a great location and the staff are very friendly and helpful . For the...

We paid serious money for a room on one of the executive floors. If the regular rooms are even more antiquated, then unless you are visually impaired, I recommend avoiding this hotel. They pretend that their food is bliss, but we felt that breakfast was anything but overwhelming. Excellent staff added a third star to my rating, otherwise this would...

Boring again :-) Typical Rydges: excellent room, excellent service, excellent breakfast, excellent and immediate attention to requests. Keep up such boredom and we'll be back yet again! Major restaurant renovations on ground floor were no problem - in fact the temporary restaurant was every bit as good as the old.
