“Great hotel and fantastic breakfast”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

We stayed for 1 night after arriving from the USA to meet up with friends. Arriving at 7am we didn't expect the room to be ready but were able to grab a coffee in the restaurant. The rooms are clean, a good size and wifi was provided which was great. The buffet breakfast was fabulous - one of the best I've had and the restaurant has obviously been recently renovated.

We really appreciated the manager allowing us to use their phones to book a tour later in the day. Made things so much easier. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We requested rooms on a high floor near our friends and were accommodated in a friendly way.

Everything was perfect for our stay, so close to everything, sky tower, casino, viaduct, harbour, queen street shopping, no transport required! Bar down stairs is perfect, happy hour (for two hours) from 5pm, great bar staff, perfect way to start the night! Will definitely return

stayed here with my fiancee while he was in Auckland for training. Great rooms with good quality toiletries. Very clean and had an awesome view of the Harbour Bridge. Reception staff very helpful and obliging. Had lunch in the restaurant, nice and tasty, I had the steak sandwich and not quite sure why the waiter took away my steak knife and gave me an ordinary knife. A steak knife was definately needed. Very close to numerous restaurants and cafes. Great location. Would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view

We love the Toblerone hot chocolate too, but you have to try the Caramello as well, It’s fantastic!

Stayed 2 nights last weekend on promotional priority package deal - room & breakfast
Very centrally located in city - close to all city amentities - within easy walking - rooms overall
better than other hotels have stayed in central Auckland - one wee gripe - TV could do with updating - poor quality picture - rooms very clean . Buffet breakfast - great selection - good house bar - would definitely stay again

Room Tip: North eastern corner suites have good harbour views

I stay at Rydges frequently when visiting Auckland for business. Rooms clean and comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Breakfast is very poor and the rest of the room service food is quite average however. Internet is very expensive for premium service and quite unreliable if you are using the free wifi. Handy location in the CBD.

Got a cheap deal from wotif.com for one of their standard rooms. Room was standard, the bed was two beds put together though which wasn't very nice. But otherwise was comfortable. Nice that they had magazines to read in the room. The bathroom is a bit outdated - really did not like the shower over bath, especially the shower curtain. Staff were OK though did not feel like the receptionists went out of their way to be particularly courteous.

Thank you so much for your review on Rydges Auckland. I am so pleased you mentioned the bathrooms in your review as I am excited to say we are currently in the process of totally refurbishing the bathrooms, including the removal of the bath and the shower curtain. It is because of reviews like these that action had to be taken to keep our rooms up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. So I thank you for mentioning this.
I do apologise that you found the reception staff lacking in their willingness to help, this is definitely not the standard we otherwise pride ourselves on.
Again I thank you for your review and I do hope we can welcome you back to the hotel very soon.

Kind Regards,

Quenton
