This is a nice hotel with a good location (very close to the bus terminal) and views, although nothing in particular makes it stand out. If you want a clean, comfortable and newer accommodation downtown, this is a great hotel.

We had 2 separate nights at the Rydges in Auckland, on our first night they were still finishing off the dinning room refurbishment so we had dinner out we would have had in any case as we had heard so much about the restaurants around the harbour. Modern hotel with all the facilities you would expect including in-room wifi, safe...

Stayed here for work and found the location quite central. Breakfast was excellent with an array of different choices. If you want to wonder out for food there were plenty of choices close by. The hotel bar seemed quite popular though. It was really quiet in the room and it was comfortable.

Room was comfortable and clean, actually had a small view of the water so that was nice. Didn't eat here - except for breakfast on the last day - and wouldn't do it again! Extremely overpriced! Otherwise no complaints, central, staff were fine bit not a lot of interaction with them to be fair.

Thank you SPhillips1975 for taking the time to share your experience. I am not sure if the team informed you but we do have an A la Carte option available at breakfast which has a range of great fresh items at a price lower than the cost of the full breakfast buffet.

It is a great hotel, very good location and very comfortable. Great service from the staff. Nice bar and restaurant. Late check out availability. Also late check in since my flight from Honolulu arrives late at night.

Stayed 3 nights in December. Room was excellent and staff very helpful . Good Breakfasts , Had one meal in the Restaurant ,its was ok, but not much choice. I would recommend it ,as its really easy to access Buses for trips round Auckland. Our room had a view of the Harbour Bridge ,be it in the distance.

We are Auckland locals who hotel hop to escape our children when our babysitters take pity on us and allow an overnight date night. 5 star is our thing and we have stayed at every top hotel in Auckland...but Rydges by far excells in service and their secret weapon is a restaurant that doesn't even know how good it is....

Stayed here for our wedding! The staff were amazing bringing family members up, bringing up my bouquets and even gave us a free breakfast as a congratulations for our wedding! I would happily stay here again and the room was huge big enough to get ready in for our wedding!

The room is fine but the restaurant was a shambles. The beer menu is tired. And there was a bug in my salad. It was only a small bug and I was too exhausted to complain. It next time I'll eat elsewhere.

Excellent location with lots of restaurants and bars close by and within walking distance of the harbour. The hotel is modern and very clean, the service was great and the breakfasts very good. I would stay here again!
