Stayed for one night - receptionist was not friendly more interested in getting our voucher than helping with luggage. We were told that the car park was full all through the day and night so had to find off street parking. Booked a double double - this was very small and despite requesting a high floor months before were given...

We knew the kitchen was being upgraded and that there was a reduced restaurant menu but no one mentioned the rebuilding of the Post Office next door or the major building works adjacent. 0700 wake up by Kango Hammers and JCBs is not great when you are on holiday.

Rydges is much like any other chain hotel. The good points were in-room cooking and microwave facilities. The pool was good and had a lot of use from our daughter. The hotel is situated close to parliament and the main shopping area, but it's a bit of a hike to the good restaurants. Breakfast was very nice, except for the...

We had 4 nights here, arriving in Wellington on one of the windiest days I have ever experienced in my life. The concierge had to leave the suitcase trolley in the hotel and hold the car door whilst we tried to unload. Otherwise I could see serious damage being done to the car. It may be a NZ thing but...

Our group had a table reservation for 7.30, but ended up having to wait in the bar until gone 9.00. Eventually finished at 11.05 (having waited a ridiculous amount of time for our desserts to arrive - how difficult is it to put 2 scoops of ice-cream in a bowl?) No apologies (just tried to blame other guests), no compensation...

This hotel was great and because the weather was not great it was even more important that it was comfortable. Room overlooking the harbour, great restaurant and helpful staff. The food was really good and the waiting staff really helpful. Concierge service also good.

We spent just one night at Rydges Wellington but quite enjoyed it. The room was clean and comfortable. It was within excellent walking distance of everything in downtown Wellington, but the main reason we chose it is that it is just one block from the train station -- perfect for an early start on the Northern Explorer. The breakfast buffet,...
