Simple and smooth check in. Greeting by name for returning again and a little upgrade always welcome. Thank you. Good location only a short walk from the city but has the added advantage of free parking saving $25 compared to being in the city. You have to eat at the best steak restaurant in town 'Bloody Mary's', part of the hotel.

The room was big enough and was very clean. Staff were very helpful. Walking distance to the New Regent Street and Cathedral Square. The Cardboard Cathedral literately just outside the hotel. Latimer Square outside the hotel is a great place to have a pleasant walk after meal or exercise in the morning.

Clean and comfortable and had a Door we could keep open all night. Good service and parking. Easy to find. Handy to city centre. Shower tiles were a bit slippery but other wise a good bathroom. Nice to have the option of fresh air and air conditioning

Rydges is really nice, the rooms big and roomy (I had a king bed). Quiet and peaceful. Staff were really attentive and helpful (at one stage the restaurant was full but reception managed to still get me a booking!). Lots of parking onsite, and perhaps best - it's literally a 3 block (5 min) walk from the Cathedral in the centre of the CBD. Christchurch too is a really nice city to visit, lots to see and do (and eat!). The restaurant (Bloody Mary's) is really good too. As a solo travel, I was especially well looked after, made sure my meals came quickly (so I wasn't "sitting staring into space, or at my phone"), they kept an eye on me and the staff were very knowledgeable about the menu (food and wine). The food was also top notch. Very impressed all round.
