Short walk down to the harbour and centrally located. Rooms do not have good views but are comfortable. Tea and coffee making facility. Free wi-fi with good reception. All staff friendly and welcoming.

We stayed in the Rydges Hotel for 2 nights at the start of a holiday touring New Zealand. It is very central being just around the corner from the Skytower. It had 3 lifts to all floors. Our room No 1004 was big with two double beds, a desk & chair, Fridge/Bar, safe, free Wi-Fi and tea & coffee making...

Stayed here for a couple of nights and found it very central for the town centre and a walk to the Waterfront ... the room was large and the staff very friendly. Good food at the restaurant and an excellent choice at breakfast time - can recommend a stay here.

I have stayed at the Rydges on many occasion in the past, they were excellent and this stay was also excellent. I checked in and was treated to an upgrade to a suite on the top floor - it was large, spacious, well appointed with kitchen and laundry facilities. The location is excellent and the hotel, clean, tide and very...

Hotel staff was very helpful. Rooms were good and bed was comfortable. Air conditioning worked well. Elevators were amazingly fast. Being in the city you do hear street noise in your room. It is fun to watch the neighbors in the high rise building from your window. The fitness center is small but allows for a good work out.

This hotel is in a great location, walking distance for both the city and the harbour. The room was basic but very clean, the bed was comfortable and the air on was good. Breakfast selection was great, however the evening meal was a little expensive! The staff were also excellent.

This is a nice executive style hotel, a little pricey. Centrally located and within walking distance to restaurants and bars. Comfortable, contemporary rooms with inclusive WiFi through out the hotel with good connection. Room toiletries have nice soaps, shampoo and lotions. Need to provide some cutlery for take away meals. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's easy to walk to...

Nice room. It had everything we needed and is in a good location for walking to Sky Tower and nearby shops and restaurants. The self parking is located a block away at a garage not owned by the hotel. If you exit the lot after having the car parked overnight, it will probably cost less to hand your parking ticket...
