You have to spend some time here, I've stayed in multiple places due to frequent work in Wellington and I can not tell you how much I love coming to Rydges after a morning flight and full day of meetings.

We arrived a little earlier than check-in time but staff were extremely friendly and the room was ready for us. We were given complimentary drinks on arrival and a full buffet breakfast - which was varied and catered for all diets. Staff in the bar were lovely and we enjoyed sampling some of the amazing range of whiskies that they...

My mother was housekeeper at Rydges Hotel in Christchurch for many years and won a lot of awards for the cleanliness and upkeep of the rooms. I booked Rydges as I expected it to have a high level of cleanliness. When I walked into the room I thought I had been given the wrong key as it looked like someone...

Very tidy and centrally located. Parking was an issue- very limited vallet, which had run out when we arrived- then find your own on the street was offered. Food was very generous and tasty- great value. Lovely lap pool, spa pool and sauna area.

Great location. Fabulous staff. Magnificent restaurant. What more do you need? A really great experience had here on Honeymoon in New Zealand and Portlanders restaurant was particularly fine. Everything exceeded expectations. JM

Great location. The bed was amazing. Good hotel in general, confortable and relaxed. Very friendly staff. Only stayed for one night and the location was perfect for going out and catching the ferry the next day. Car parking is not included, they have a valet parking and charge per night.

We stayed here because it was in a nice central location. The rooms are a reasonable size and having kitchenettes is fantastic, as is the pool. The beds and pillows were very comfy. Breakfast was delicious! The staff we dealt with were very helpful.

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.
