All aspects of the hotel meet our expectations. Every employee went out of there way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. If and when we return to Auckland we will stay at the Rydges. Our thanks to all.

Our travel agent booked us here for two nights before a cruise.. Location fine, a few blocks from the dock, breakfast and general standard good. Only comments were the unfriendly welcome when we checked in late at night (flights from Sydney arrive after midnight) and the sliding door in our bathroom didn't shut properly - and staff struggled to control...

We paid over the odds for a superior deluxe room. It was neither deluxe nor superior. Tiny room with alleged city view. You could see the city of you stood looking left out the window (after wedging the curtain against the end of it's slider), otherwise you had a view of the building 100ft away. Plastic toilet seat with toilet...

A very nice hotel with a good location. You can go to many of the Auckland attractions on foot. The concierge was outstanding and helped us plan our days amazing. Thumbs up and special recognition for the concierge!

This is a nice hotel with a good location (very close to the bus terminal) and views, although nothing in particular makes it stand out. If you want a clean, comfortable and newer accommodation downtown, this is a great hotel.

We had 2 separate nights at the Rydges in Auckland, on our first night they were still finishing off the dinning room refurbishment so we had dinner out we would have had in any case as we had heard so much about the restaurants around the harbour. Modern hotel with all the facilities you would expect including in-room wifi, safe...

Stayed here for work and found the location quite central. Breakfast was excellent with an array of different choices. If you want to wonder out for food there were plenty of choices close by. The hotel bar seemed quite popular though. It was really quiet in the room and it was comfortable.

Room was comfortable and clean, actually had a small view of the water so that was nice. Didn't eat here - except for breakfast on the last day - and wouldn't do it again! Extremely overpriced! Otherwise no complaints, central, staff were fine bit not a lot of interaction with them to be fair.

Thank you SPhillips1975 for taking the time to share your experience. I am not sure if the team informed you but we do have an A la Carte option available at breakfast which has a range of great fresh items at a price lower than the cost of the full breakfast buffet.
