Stayed here as part of the Kirra Tour and would definitely stay here again! The location was absolutely brilliant, being only a block from the skytower/skycity casino, 5 minute walk to the harbours and only a couple of streets from the main shopping street of Queen Street. Friendly welcome and check in. The concierge was absolutely brilliant.

First room: Room 425. Amazing deluxe room. Had a corner room which gave me two different views - one of the street and the other was of the tower! Luxury room with excellent facilites, very clean flat screen TV and lovely bathroom. Dinner on this night was Chicken pate, lamb and a cheesecake brownie - all extremely nice!!

Second room: Room 711. Stayed at this hotel on my own after the end of tour and again wasn't disappointed. Was upgraded to a deluxe harbour view room!! Amazing view of the harbour and the auckland bridge!!! Luxury facilities, large room with flat screen TV, clean and lovely bathroom.

Polite and efficient staff in every part of the hotel including the cleaning staff (excellent and prompt service by all).

Would definitely stay here again when I am next in Auckland. LOVED IT. Best hotel.

Hi there,

Wow, thank you for a great review on Rydges Auckland. I am so pleased you found your first stay with us so great you ended your tour with us again too.
It is also great you got to experience two very different but two very great views from your stays; the Skytower really is great to see, especially lit up at night (and watching the people free falling from the top – eek) and then the Harbour with the bridge at sunset is magnificent.
I do hope the next time you are in New Zealand you come and see us again as we would love to have you back.
Warm regards,

Quenton

The Rydges in Auckland was a really great value. The hotel staff is very friendly, the rooms are nice and clean, and the gym is very well equipped. The location is good and the internet is free. We would stay here again.

Lovely check-in service, polite and efficient staff. We had to wait a little bit for the room, but we got a free coffee in the morning at the "Barista" cafe. Nice touch!
Comfortable room and fantastic food from the in-house restaurant!
The only downside is the expensive parking and the extra 2% Credit card fee put onto the customers.

For us it is a good location in central Auckland, but it is down a dark back street so lone females may not feel comfortable walking back in darkness.

If you can get a room at a reasonable rate then it is very good for the location.

Bar is OK, if not too many people when it can be slow service and no seating.

Not tried the restaurant for lunch/dinner.

Breakfast is good if inclusive - expensive otherwise.

Check-out can be slow. They seem to have a very complex computer system.

Overall very good if you get a good price on the room and as many extra included as possible.
