                                  We were only there for the night, but the location was excellent for our needs and a very comfortable room with all you would require for a nights stay

                                  There is nothing to comment here, everything was to the standard expected

                                  This hotel is really centrally situated in Wellington CBD. A comfortable hotel for a business trip

                                  Location was great

                                  We paid for a upgrade king with balcony. Room had no balcony so they moved us to another. Balcony was awful windows so dirty it looked like frosted glass. And was just a budget room. Didn't get any discount and paid for upgrade for nothing was pretty disappointed. Staff were great and hotel was really nice, location great but was quite noisy.

                                  The staff on the reception desk were excellent- they couldn't do enough to help us settle in. They dealt immediately with the car parking and gave us advice on where to go, what to see, where to eat. The room was much better than expected and very good value for money. We had an executive suite on the top floor of the hotel with views to die for. The hotel was ideally situated as far as shopping, culture, Inter Islander ferrry etc were concerned.

                                  We hadn't been informed that the hotel had changed from the Holiday Inn to Rydges.

                                  No comfortable chair in room. No paper and pencil near phone for writing notes.

                                  The Hotel is located to all major tourist attractions and is extremely well located to and in walking distance for rail, ferry and bus transport and for shopping in CBD. The hotel is well situated for the wellington harbour to stroll along and enjoy the scenary and cafes. The room was very comfortable and the hotel restaurant meals exceptional. Staff were very friendly and helpfull. We would highly recommend you stay you will not be disapointed as we will be booking Ridges Wellington on our next stop over.

                                  Overall a pleasant stay

                                  The only negative was the beds. Too soft for two people as you rocknroll all night and pillows not good either. had to use one of the decorator cushions as there was only one extra pillow for 3 people

                                  Very friendly staff, especially Benjimen. The room I stayed in had the wow factor, i loved it. Lots of extras offered if you wanted them eg pillows, sauna etc. I think this was the nicest room I had ever had in a hotel

                                  The computer was down when i got there and they couldnt give me a room.after waiting 20 mins i went for a walk instead. But staff were apologetic and helpful, took my bags and they were in my room when i got back later.

                                  Although breakfast buffet was included in the rate booked with Booking, NZD 52 for breakfast were billed. My demand to refund this amount to my credit card has not been honored up to now.
