    Location

    The room house keeping was not up to the standard we have had in other Rydgers (Queenstown ) and other top price hotels. I will be writing to the manager of this hotel when I return home as he/ she needs to know if an indifferent service supplied :-(.

    Location

    I had booked deluxe room but when I went to my room I found it was not instead it was room designed for disable people . It was late night and we were tired to go to sleep and thus did not make a fuss. Wifi in Netherlands lobby is only free for 20 minutes and slow.

    Staff, service and attention to detail was excellent. Dinner in the restaurant was great. Highly recommended hotel.

    Air conditioner in the room was noisey.

    Fabulous

    Comfortable spacious room, good facilities, good location (close to the water, and to the Beehive, station etc, although a little bit out of the main shopping and eating areas, but that's what we have feet for). 20 mins per day free WiFi available in the foyer. Helpful staff.

    Expensive internet access for in-room use.

    Fabulous

    The location and service and the rooms were well soundproofed. It was quiet and peaceful.

    I felt the cost of parking was rather excessive. There should have been more milk in the room, and although there was plunger coffee there was no actual plunger to make it in.

    Superb

    Friendly people, including other guests, and very good location for Wellington city AND waterfront

    1. Cost to park the car was excessive, especially per nite 2. the glass wall between bathroom and bedroom was peculiar

    Good

    I have now stayed here four times in 4 months but somehow the good experience of the first visit has not been repeated. Except that the room service beef was excellent.

    Servce appears brisk and efficient but issues seem to then just be ignored. No-one to answer phone on reception. Air con wouldn't work. Room not serviced when I stayed two nights - with no real apology.

    If the rooms had windows it would've been great.

    The staff were excellent - friendly, happy to help, responsive.

    It was a little far from the city center, although the price made up for some of the extra walk.

    Guest rating

    Convenience, central position.

    The exorbitant price. No doubt the hotel would argue their price is in keeping with city prices. Not acceptable. There is an unpleasant air about the hotel of greed, everything which can be is highly priced as an 'extra'.

    Exclusive

    The warm friendly welcome from the receptionist and her help and advice on things to do as a family in Wellington, followed by a greeting from the GM and his further advise about places to go with our 5 year old son. I liked the handy location. The rooms were very comfortable with good facilities. We also enjoyed the lap pool and spa.

    The view from our room into the adjacent office block. There was no plug for the bath. The making up of our room seems to have been a little below par. The dustbins weren't emptied and the bed spread/cover just seemed to have been tossed on the bed. Not a biggie, but just something that you would notice.
