6/10 Good

So so
Good room good breakfast , got a sour face from one of the guy from reception. Somehow all we got is decaf coffee , even after room service still no coffee. Breakfast is good, service at the restaurant is excellent, kids meal portion is huge . Room is very outdated, the good thing they got microwave.

Ok but might be great when COVID restrictions lift
We had an okay stay here. Totally understand that because of COVID restrictions things won't be the same but the hotel needs to be more upfront. The restaurant isn't operating as normal. Room servicing isn't as normal, glasses were dirty etc. Otherwise it's just a bit tired and doesn't have simple things like USB ports, decent TV.

Although the room was big enough it was a little dated. Bathroom definitely needed an upgrade. We only dealt with two staff members and they were both fine.

Won’t be back
The guy who checked us in had a terrible attitude! This is our 4th time staying at this specific hotel. We will not go back, we had much better service at Sofitel and Oaks in Wellington

Great service - enjoyed my stay
The staff at this hotel are really helpful and i enjoyed my stay. I had one issue in that i ordered a drink at the bar that came with slimy basil but on taking it back the issue was dealt with wonderfully and i ended up with a different drink and many apologies. Great service and just a super comfortable hotel.
Mojito that was slimy
Was replaced with this wonderful cosmopolitan

Great stay!
We really enjoy our stay. The only downside was that the air conditioning wasn't working that well. Otherwise Rydges lived up to it's reputation. Thank you!
