Bed was comfortable but lighting in the room and bathroom was insufficient. Only 1 type of pillow which was too high for me. Disappointing as I would have taken my own pillow had I know. Valet parking was a good feature.

Overall a very good trip. Everything worked well. The Green Card facility was well received and I think Rydges is being quite progressive offering such an option. Well done. Only niggle was that the hotel did not communicate that the partnership with the local gym was not in effect at level 2 and I had to make alternative arrangements.

Kia Ora, Thank you for touching base in relation to your recent experience with us here at Rydges Wellington. Under level 2 the local gym we use are unable to take walk in guests so they are in need of being pre booked if you were wanting to go. I do hope to welcome you back in the near future

A great stay here. Comfy beds and good facilities. Bathrooms might need a wee upgrade; but a nice place all The same. Gutted due to Covid levels we couldn’t indulge in their amazing buffet breakfast. Definitely will be back. All staff were helpful and friendly!
