My husband and I recently went to the restaurant at Rydges Wellington
- The Portlander. We had heard several good things about this
restaurant and they all lived up to expectation. The staff were
friendly, the service was efficient but the food was definitely the
highlight. I had the Pistachio Lamb and it was cooked to perfection -
delicious flavours! Will certainly be returning for another meal.

Great place, very well presented with brilliant and friendly staff! My girlfriend and I had both breakfast and lunch in the restaurant, the breakfast was an excellent quality buffet style meal. For the lunch we both tried a different kind of burger and were both very impressed with both the quality and value for money. There also seemed to be extra attention given to even the little details in the presentation of both the food and the hotel overall. I will definitely be recommending the Hotel anyone looking for a place to stay in Wellington.

Stayed the weekend with family at the Rydges. The room was great - spacious and modern with a great view of Wellington. Breakfast was amazing with alot to choose from and all the staff were great and a pleasure to deal with. Location was great with it being in close proximity to everywhere we wanted to go - could just walk. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to others

Stayed for two nights in a Harbour View Room. The view was fantastic, great to be able to see the lovely Wellington Harbour. The room was lovely and the decor very modern. The breakfast in the restaurant was amazing with so much choice. All the hotel staff from the front desk to housekeeping were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, an easy walk to almost everywhere in the central Wellington business area. Will definately stay at Rydges Wellington again and highly recommend them.

Room Tip: Harbour view suites have awesome views of Wellington Harbour

we booked our accommodation through the whatif site and it was a mystery booking, thank goodness it was Rydges (it used to be the Holiday Inn)We've stayed here about 4 times and every time has been great, some niggly bits but overall lovely. The rooms are tidy and clean and look nice. Great bathroom, not always a great view, this time we were looking at the post office building. Nice offices!!! Bought a bottle of wine to our room and there was no corkscrew, when hubby went down they tried to tell him there was one, nope there wasn't. It took a while for them to find one but it arrived at the door evenyually. Had a late check out time, a bit awkward coz we went for a walk after breakfast and were locked out of our room. Had to pop down and get another key so we could get our bags out of the room! We got 2 for 1 on breakfast and that was super, lots of choice and all well cooked, a bit crowded, we might have decided to come down to breakfast at the same time as everyone else. All together a lovely stay in a consistently good hotel.
