This was our first visit to Rydges Wellington. We arrived early for check in and were able to access our room straight away,which was much appreciated. The decor of the room and overall hotel was excellent. The pool, spa and sauna were well used by the our entire family. Was a little disappointed the area was not checked on later in the day, as by evening there were no dry towels and there had been rubbish and wet towels left lying around.
The buffet breakfast was, to put it politely, a shambles. Admittedly the staff were very busy, however I expected a Hotel of this quality to be professional enough to manage. The food and juices were slow to be replenished and when they were, often there were no plates or glasses/cups available! When we were finally able to get our meal, I found we had no cutlery, on trying to get the attention of a waitress, I was told to 'hang on'. After 'hanging on' another 10 minutes, we had the privilege of consuming the cold food. The breakfast experience was very disappointing, I would not recommend this during peak times.
The location of the Hotel was awesome, convenient walking to parliament, te papa, train station and the water front bars.
