Visited Wellington just for the night over the weekend staying at the Rydges to attend a birthday in town. Our room was perfect for us and the service on check in and check out was very good. We asked for a portacot and this was free plus no hassle at all to bring to our room. Our rate didn't include...

I stayed here for only one night in May and was thoroughly impressed. The room was very spacious, had plenty of room and was super clean. The location is great for exploring the city. The staff, service and facilities were all to a high standard. The breakfast was amazing!!! Make sure you get that included, loved the little milkshake bottles.

Excellent Service from booking to checking out. Our room had 2 comfy double beds, a small desk and 2 chairs. Was quite surprised that was a cook top and a microwave as well. Best mini fridge ever, the freezer was actually like a freezer! Paid extra for a water view room but in hindsight probably the city view would have...

The hotel was well located downtown. The room had a minibar plus a microwave and cooking facilities. It also had room service and 24 hour reception plus free wifi also available. I did not get a chance to try the restaurant or room service.

Room: The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The shower pressure and heated mirror really make a big difference when starting the day. I'm not a fan of the glased window between the bathroom and the bedroom, it has marks which brings our the paranoia in my inner clean freak being so close to the toilet. The views are nice and...

We stayed at Rydges with a family of 4. Two double beds in the shared living area was quite tight with all our suit cases and trace bags. Room was very clean and modern with a well appointed kitchenette. Overall good value for money for a CBD hotel room.

Often stay here for work. Customer service at reception has always been good. Like the rooms with a balcony the best. Beds are comfortable and rooms are a decent enough size. Restaurant has superb steak meals - recommend you book as its often fully booked.

Good facilities, clean rooms. Although we didn't use them, the room had some cooking facilities, which is unusual for a hotel. Handy location - close to Te Papa, The Beehive, shopping, waterfront, bars, restaurants etc. Good variety of food at breakfast.
