Exceptional”

The very close proximity with the Railway Station is the main deciding factor on why I chose Rydges Wellington. Although I was a bit skeptical initially when reading descriptions of the hotel location but when I experience it myself, readers can count on me that... YES! Rydges Wellington is indeed 2 minutes of casual walk to the Railway Station but 1 MINUTE normal walking distance not only to/from the Railway Station but the beautiful Wharf. My only regret is it was a short stay . I might be back to Wellington and Rydges will again be my choice of accommodation and perhaps longer stay.

pleasant, comfortable”

big room, lots of light, friendly, attentive staff.

it is the second time that we stay at the Rydges Wellington Hotel. as in the previous time, we were pleased with our room which was large, with a big window looking at the city. the staff were helpful and friendly. there was, as before, a charge of 30 nz dollars a day for the car valet parking, but since it is in the centre of town, it is understandable. the only drawback, -and this seems to be common for the hotels here- is the high cost if we would have wanted to use internet. (you are given 20 minutes free, though) we would not doubt to come back here.

Modern, clean and warm

Our stay at the Rydges Wellington Hotel was all that we expected. The reception we received upon our arrival was very friendly and helpful. The room that we had was very clean, warm and well appointed. The location of this hotel is very good, just a block from parliament buildings, a very short walk to the centre of shopping and a slightly longer (15min) wqlk to TePapa Museum. We certainly would stay here again.

Staff, spa, location

We stayed for a weekend at the Rydges and loved it. We splashed out for a more expensive room and it was well worth it. When we arrived in Wellington I rang to check if a shuttle had been booked to pick us up, it had not, but the staff were very friendly and booked one quickly for us. When we arrived we were upgraded to the harbour side and moved up to a high floor and given drink vouchers at the bar for the inconvenience. The room was lovely and clean, the daily cleaning was great. The spa, pool and sauna were great for the cold days. the hotel has lovely facilities, everything that you need.
