Stayed at Rydges Christchurch a few nights back. Our first visit to this city was a dissapointment after being charged $80 for a cab ride from the airport by a local Kiwi taxi driver.
Although the hotel is new that does not make up for the staff not knowing their product. We had booked a package including breakfast &wifi and a f/b voucher.
At both check in and check out the front office staff had to be reminded and not charge us. We ended up not having dinner in the hotel after being told the restaurant was full and could we could have a drink at the bar while we wait (that old trick). We saw 6 empty tables while we waited and after 1/2 hour or so we gave up and left. Sure you agree not a good introduction to a new hotel.
Rooms on the other hand were ok we all the usual amenities. As other reviewer mentioned not up to the standed of s $250 per nite hotel.
