The room was great and location is good. If you're taking the airport bus into Auckland be prepared to walk up the hill to the hotel, should be fine for anyone who's fit. Every time I spoke to a staff member I felt that I was inconveniencing them - and I only spoke to them to check in, ask about...

As a Priority Guest Rewards Member I appreciated the upgrade to a room with a clear close-up view of the Sky Tower. Reception and Concierge staff were efficient and pleasant. Unfortunately the restaurant staff made two separate errors on our bill significantly over-charging for our dinner; these were corrected when pointed out but without compensation.

Came to stay at Rydges for my honeymoon. We reached the hotel at around 4isha, with quite a few bags in the cab.I was expecting porters to help us take the bags out at least.. they were too busy looking through coupons to buy on web. Just had to get the trolley for myself and help myself. FINALLY got to...

We have stayed in a few reputable hotels in Auckland and by far have enjoyed the Rydges. This is my second stay at The Rydges. Haven't been back in a while so it was a nice surprise to be reminded how great it really is. We were checked in super fast and they did as I requested by giving us...

First time at this hotel. Good price and pleasant staff to check you in. Rooms are spacious although lose a bit of space in the bathroom. Very comfortable beds, loads of space to work in the room. Breakfast was very good plenty of choice but a bit expensive

Earlier this year, we visited Auckland for a short break. We are looking for a reasonably-priced hotel in the middle of Auckland as our base. We got a good deal from one of travel sites. Overall, it was an adequate, comfortable stay.

Nice hotel, great location! Right by the Auckland Sky Tower, so really easy to find when out wandering! Nice room, smallish. Shower had great pressure but wasn't segregated from the rest of the bathroom, so everything got wet unless I dialed it down which was unfortunate. Not a lot of horizontal space in the bathroom (counter space).
