Barist'a On the Corner
Open daily early until late afternoon. This is where you will find absolutely brilliant coffee, a range of quality teas and a little taste of continental Europe. Freshly baked croissants, Danishes, Brioche and an array of gourmet treats that tantalise the senses. Locals walk that extra block to make Barist'a on the Corner part of their morning ritual and so our in-house guests consider themselves very lucky having our Barista located at their convenience in the hotel! Whether it's a quick morning catch-up with colleagues or a haven to sit, relax in the sun and 'people-watch' our Barista will not disappoint!

Rydges Aucklands signature restaurant is The CUT, which is located on the ground floor of the hotel. The CUT has a proud and enviable reputation of being one of the finest restaurants in Auckland with a particular focus on the finest CUTs of beef, char-grilled to your likingbut its not just beef. The CUT specialises in producing exquisite dishes crafted from the very best of New Zealand produce. Whether coming from the lush green pastures or deep blue Ocean we ensure that each bite is packed with natural flavour and texture tailored to excite and satisfy the most discerning critics. We know at The CUT that exceptional food is only part of the experience and without a refreshing beverage to accompany and complement each dish its somewhat only half the experience, we encourage you to choose a beverage from our extensive wine, beer and beverage selection.

Great location

Central to all you would want to do in Auckland, Concierge can help with cheaper taxi to the airport, but check the price quoted carefully. Be prepared for a more run down cab.

Great location close to harbour and other attraction. Good initiative that you can be rewarded if skip room service, good for the green traveller.

disappointing stay

Considering its star rating, I expected better. The air conditioning was broken 4 out of the 6 days i was staying and no recompense was offered until i enquired for the 10th time on the last evening about the status of repairs where they gave me a fan in my room. Money not well spent.

Great room, fab location

Enjoyed our stay at Rydges. Room was great. Location was perfect. Easy to find and get to. Room was spotless. Only fault with room was one of the lamps needed a tiny bit of TLC. Parking was a non issue, was concerned from some comments, were prepared to use valet parking but ended up using self parking for all 3 nights and it was completely fine. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Nice hotel, but the room temperature fluctuates too much

We had room 814. Noise insulation between rooms is fantastic; with the outside world not so bad, but it could be improved. Room was hot during the day. It needed the air con on all the time (and it wasn't even summer). At night, with the air con turned off (I can't sleep with air con on) , temperature fluctuated too much too often, affecting the quality of sleep. TV volume control was shocking. Some programs were too low to listen too. Bathroom was too small. If seated on the toilet, the shower glass is very near your head (forget reading). To be fair, here are the positive. The hotel is centrally located in a nice and safe area. It is very clean, and the staff are absolutely fantastic. I would definitely recommend it.

Try the green lip mussels. They grow only in New Zealand, and they are fantastic. And on Mondays, they are on specials.

Super Comfortable Beds BUT ...

A few little things combined to make my stay less than perfect. The large curtain did not cover right hand side of window so the neon lights from outside shone in my eyes, empty salt shaker on my breakfast tray and cold poached eggs, TV needs adjusting as not a good picture on most channels and limited volume on TV1. Room Service dinner only luke warm and I would better for high price. Would like to see ordinary continental breakfast as a choice on breakfast menu and would like real milk in the fridge with the tea and o
