Super Hotel Choice

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Super hotel, probably the best place we stayed on our entire trip across NZ. Hotel was right downtown by the Skytower and easy walking distance to the ferry/harbor area. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Very clean rooms, modern offerings and a friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very nice hotel/Good bargain

We stayed 3 nights and got a very reasonable rate. Our room did not have a good view, but staff offered a better view at check-in for a higher price. We knew we would not be spending a lot of time in the room, so we opted to save money, and did not bother about the view (mainly of a neighboring office building). The staff was helpful, letting us check in a few hours early without extra cost. Took bus from airport, which let us off at a stop which was about a block away from the hotel. We like to walk, so didn't mind. We liked the central location, not far from Skytower. It was easy to get transportation, by bus or rail, and to walk to many places in the city. The room was very clean and simply but stylishly furnished. The only negative was the slight lengthwise dip in the middle of the king bed, which otherwise was comfortable and supplied with great pillows. The water was good and hot, making for wonderful showers! Housekeeping was excellent. We also appreciated the in-room fridge and room heating/cooling. We will be glad to stay at Rydges again and recommend it highly.

Great location. exceptional service, best breakfast

We just returned from a three week trip to New Zealand and stayed here 2 days at the beginning and another 2 days at the end. We chose Rydges based on location before we left and were very pleased with our cloice. Sky City is one block away. Besides the Sky City views, bungy jumping and other attractions on site there is an i-site in the Sky City building that is very helpful for booking the rest of your trip. And lots of buses stop there as well. The hotel itself is rather like the W hotels here is the US. The rooms are a little small but the beds are super comfortable with down comfoters and pillows. The furnishings are modern. We found the buffet breakfast to be the best we encountered in our 21 days in NZ. New Zealand is not known for its service but the service here is like top hotels in the US and no one expects tips! The front desk was very helpful and room service was prompt and excellent quality. The only negatives were the size of the room and the cost of using the on site computer which was the highest we encountered anywhere. But all in all it was an excellent value for the price. We ended up also staying at a Rydges in Christchurch and returning for the two days here at the end of our trip.
