Far too expensive
The breakfast is good but totally overpriced. The food in the restaurant is also good.
This is a very basic offering with a terrible location. It's far from everything except a supermarket. The rooms are small. The staff are on the whole friendly but ironically the senior staff have a tendency to get a bit snappy. Overall I'd question how much they're getting paid, either it's low or the management culture sucks all the fun out of working there- my observation after 3 weeks there is that it would be both. I would question just what exactly "by Rydges" is supposed to denote in terms of quality- the suggestion here being that Rydges has obviously gone down hill to be associated with this hotel.
Roomy, clean, comfortable
Terrible hours on food service (ends early and there is nothing around), no vending machines or anything after 9:30 PM, no ice machines, no nothing.
location to Westpac Stadium
The Staff were friendly and very helpful, Nothing was too much trouble. The Girls always greeted e with a smile. Very impressed.
Two problems only with my stay. Firstly the chairs in the Restaurant are far too low for comfort and the tables don't accommodate ones legs with ease,Secondly Cafenet inernet connection is useless. I paid $20 and had 5 minutes use of it as I continued to be cut off. It took 4 phone calls to their help desk also one call from your Reception to the help desk, which still didn't solve the problem. Need to change it. I heard the same complaint from other guests
it has access to a good nearby gym and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly
It was very quiet in the room and it had a good shower
I would have liked extra bedding. I was a bit cold in bed.
The pillows were very uncomfortable
Enjoyed excellent meals and service in the dining room. Do not want my remarks to be published.
Clean rooms, good restaurant
Nice and quiet on the 8th floor. It's within easy walking distance of almost all of WGT main places-to-see.
On one day the room was made up only at 2.30pm, but the next day there was a knock on the door at 9.30am from the staff. The hotel has a check-in after 2, check-out by 10 policy and the staff ought to abide by their own rules.
The friendly, attentive staff
The bed was hard.
The service was fantastic! The staff were very friendly and welcoming and I felt that they would be able to help with anything I needed help with, very capable. My room was very comfortable and the room service was great. The food was delicious! I didn't have time to use the pool, sauna or gym. The hotel was handy to seeing Wellington and shopping!
A few small issues with the cleaning - dirty teaspoons and a mark by the shower that could easily have been cleaned off. I didn't feel that the room was dirty though, it was very comfortable.
