not bad... but not as good as it could be

Nice hotel with lovely staff. The description said bathtub and harbour view. The harbour was only visible from the balcony... and there was no bath. Balcony windows were filthy but probably hard to keep clean from wind and salt spray. Why oh why can't hotels provide nice hand soap? Instead its always the ghastly little soaps which smell of ....yuck! For nearly $300 per night I want a wee bit of luxury!! C'mon, it's not pricey to provide a lovely smelling soap.

Great Stay

Just come back from seeing WOW in Wellington stayed a the Rydges. We found this to be a great hotel, very busy but staff very attentive, the huge TV screen in the lounge area was very loud when trying to have a conversation, forgive them as it was the All Blacks playing.The bathroom floor appeared to be quite dirty, but we were not in there long so it didn't really matter. Would definitely stay here again the beds are super comfy and good size room.

Great location and service

The breakfast variety is fantastic and the quality of food at the restaurant is also exceptional. This hotel is in a great location. Close to the train station, close to airport bus stops, walking distance to the waterfront and to shopping areas. Staff are helpful and the hotel facilities are great.

Great Stay

The staff were very friendly and presentable. The room was very clean, tidy and modern, and as a bonus it was ready for us early. Beside the lobby is the hotel restaurant and bar which had very friendly staff. While we didn't have dinner, we did have breakfast, and it was great - really loved the small glass milk bottles in the fridge which you could choose from - strawberry, banana or chocolate milk. While I'm not a child, I thought it was such a great touch. The stay was great - would definitely stay there again next time!

Great one night stay for business

Rydges Wellington proved to be an excellent choice for a one night stay while in Wellington for business. My colleague and I found that this hotel provided us with the ample space and comfort. Situated conveniently at the Parliament end of town, it catered for all our needs with a quick meal after flying in, to an express continential breakfast before we started our day. From check in to check out this was a great experience all around. Staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful.
