I stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and contained everything I needed and its central location was ideal for sight seeing. The breakfast was great with a comprehensive choice of food. I would recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.

Spent two night at Rydges. Lovely views of the harbour although they may be blocked in the future as there's building work going on. Staff are extremely friendly and efficient on reception. Well done them. And the beds are amazing. Best night sleep ever.

The kitchenette was useful and the room space was fairly generous - two "double" beds were provided. Some traffic noise but overall we did not notice much adjacent room disturbance. Housekeeping was a bit inconsistent with replenishing stuff like toilet paper...but there was a high standard of cleanliness Nice looking pool which we did not use this time around. Handy...

I probably stay here 8 out of every 10 trips to Wellington and has become my happy place. You always know what you are going to get and the refurbished rooms are excellent. Even if you are located near a lift, it is quiet and comfortable. Checking in and out is always a breeze and there is always a cab...

Rydges is located in the heart of Wellington. The seaside promenade and other sightseeing and cultural spots are within walking distance. The staff is very helpful and the lobby bar is a must. One of the few locations during my 3 week NZ trip where they serve the original NZ lamb chops in excellent quality. Very recommendable.
