We were there on July 2016 on our honeymoon, we spent one night and everything was quite good. Good location, in the middle of the city. It is a very modern and full-equipped hotel, with good offer of restaurants and private parking (not free)

Rydges was a quality venue for our family holiday. The pool was a real highlight, especially for the spells of Wellington wind and rain that rolled through mid-week. The breakfasts were outstanding, with enough variation for the boys to try something different each day. Our boys loved having a city view, and would happily stand at the window watching fire...

I stayed here for a weekend in July. Great location, decent room size, handy kitchenette, comfortable bed. Very windy and the balcony window rattled a lot, but otherwise I can't fault it. Restaurant was great too. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Last minute booking to attend a function in Wellington (not wanting to return to the Wairarapa that night) Lovely service and an amazing view from the room. Would absolutely return and stay again. Very hapy with the service and quality.

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.
