          JANLUEY. Rydges Management. I'm concerned about the below response from Rydges Management. Having been stuck in this lift myself, with non functioning emergency button. At the time, we were also concerned about 11 people being an issue, we actually checked the weight limits before entering (and 30 minutes stuck there to double check..). Unless the manufacturer's limits are incorrect, I suggest you have the safety plaque inside the lift updated. Or your attitude, adjusted. I hope that incidents like this and this forum can help Rydges to perform better I the future. Rather than this type of, 'tit for tat' response to your customers concerns. - MANAGEMENT RESPONSE: Vince S, Manager at Rydges Lakeland Resort Hotel Queenstown, responded to this review 7 Aug 2016 Hi Janluey, I appreciate your feedback, On behalf of all of the team here at Rydges Queenstown we do apologise for the lift incident and we were delighted to hear all guests were fine, Unfortunately our lifts are not designed to hold 11 persons which resulted in the overloaded carriage shutting down, our maintenance team and lift contractors are investigating the emergency button as the incident was a concern. Regards, Vince
