We stayed in Rydges for three nights on business. It is in a good location, just a 4 minute walk to Lambton Quay and Parliament building. It is worth getting a room overlooking the harbour for the view. Our room wasn't as clean as it should be, so we were moved promptly to a higher floor, which was better and...

Hi there, Thank you for your review, it's great that our convenient location was handy for your business needs. However please do accept our apologies regarding your initial room not being quite up to scratch, though we are glad to hear you were promptly moved to better room. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope...

Whilst my room was spacious, it was tired and a bit shabby. The worst aspect was the bathroom, which smelled mouldy, and looked out of date. In addition, the heater remote didn't work. The good things were the very efficient lifts, the friendly staff, and the excellent food in the dining room. The breakfast food, whilst dear, was fresh and...

perfect location, right on lambton quay. I went for an 'end of exams' holiday and shared a room with two queen beds with my mum. Really spacious and decent quality rooms (but view non-existant). Service was great, the buffet breakfast was next level; I'd definitely recommend trying to find a deal with breakfast included. The restaurant is amazing for dinner...

We had a great harbour view from 11th floor. Be aware that rooms with harbour views are very limited. Breakfast was very good, spoiled only by excessively loud hip hop music .Our room was nice but stuffy (no opening windows). On street parking was not an issue at weekends, but could be a problem at other times. Nice hotel. Worked...

We have stayed at Rydes Wellington many times for a weekend get away. The couples therapy package is a great deal and the breakfast is amazing. It is so nice to have a swim in their pool and then relax in the spa. Friendly service and comfy bed. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back. Thank you

I arrived from Auckland on the train and the location of the hotel could hardly be better, just a few minutes walk away. My 9th floor room was very comfortable, and the bed was superb.
