Nice new hotel good food at bar.

Nice modern hotel. Staff helpful. By joining Rydges club we got a free drink and discount on our meal. We ate in the bar area as the restaurant was booked out, Food was good and well priced. I used the GYM which was OK, it has quite a few aerobic machines and just hand weights. Overall we would be pleased to stay there again.

Fantasic Comfortable Bed

This new hotel is a great addition to Christchurch, we had a great stay. Very quiet, spaceous rooms. Bed was so comfortable. good bathroom and shower. The bar was a nice atmosphere. Heaps of car parking. We will stay again. The minor negatives - the toilet is behind the bathroom door and bid hard to get too, plus no information in the room about internet access.

perfect for dropping into Christchurch

We have just spent two days and nights at Rydges Latimer Christchurch. It is absolutely brand new - still smelling of NEW...in a good way. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. It was a terrific location. While Christchurch still takes some getting used to, post-earthquakes, it was always a pleasure to return to Rydges where one could still pretend that nothing traumatic had occurred to the Garden City.

Good Value Hotel

Everything was very clean & bright as the hotel had only been opened 7 weeks before we arrived. Unfortunately, the Gym and Sauna were still unfinished so could not use them. The room was modern and comfortable and was fair value for what we paid. Well located a short walk away from what is left of the centre of Christchurch. Friendly staff and a good bar/restaurant on site.
