4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Modern , not much of a view, service was good, clean, rooms on smaller side. bed medium support. bathroom tight squeeze. no complaints but not blown away either. we did not eat in the restaurant but it was pretty lively at night.

Couples getaway to Christchurch. Stayed here for one night. Room was clean and larger than expected. Staff was friendly and efficient on checkin. It was little further away from the theater than another hotel (also starting with R) that we considered but the walk only took 5 minutes. The amenities are well appointed and the mini bar was well stocked - there were even games!

Great night away! Rooms quiet and well kept. Staff only to happy to help with anything that was needed. Had breakfast at Bloody Mary in the morning which was really well presented with a good selection of things to choose from. Walking distance to CBD and other sights around Christchurch. Just something to ponder on might be an idea to have more toiletries in the room, especially if there are more than two people staying only had one lot provided and didn't feel like asking for more. Apart from that would be very happy to stay there again.

We had planned to stay for 2 nights but had to change the dates and reduce to 1 night. The staff were very efficient and helpful with this. The hotel is in a central location in Christchurch and very modern. The room we had was a good size, clean and well-decorated. There was a flat screen TV, ipod dock,safe, iron & ironing board, hairdryer and small fridge. There was a kettle with tea & coffee. The hotel has a gym. We did not eat in the restaurant except for breakfast where there was a wide selection buffet. Parking is free as is wifi.

Spent the night at Rydges Latimer Christchurch for a conference and had a very good experience. The staff were very polite and helpful. The room was spotless with a super comfy bed and the best pillows. The breakfast at Bloody Mary was also great with lots of healthy options. The location of the hotel is fantastic. I will definitely return. Thanks for a great experience Rydges.

My partner and I recently spent one night in this hotel before flying home to Sydney from Christchurch. The hotel was modern with plenty of technologies. Parking was easy and free. Rooms were well sized and equipped. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located in Christchurch.

A decent place to stay, centrally located at the city. The rooms are great with all facilities. Buffet breakfast can be added with some additional variety.The hotel staff is extremely friendly and cooperative. The lobbies are with good taste and have the signed accessories of sport persons.

Wonderful hotel in Christchurch. Large rooms with modern amenities. Lovely bar downstairs with leather lounges to enjoy a drink. We only stayed one night so didn't get a chance to go to the restaurant. Will definitely stay again .....and for more than one night!!

Situated beside the grassy expanse of Latimer Square this is a post-earthquake recently built low-rise hotel. Our 4th floor room was of very good size with all the standard features that a good hotel offers - comfortable settee, large LG wall-mounted TV, iron/ironing board, safe and a bean-bag! The bed was OK but it didn't seem to be as comfortable as the Rydges Dream Bed that I've experienced in other Rydges hotels. There is a decent amount of on-site parking and street parking is also quite plentiful. Breakfast and dinner is served at Bloody Mary's restaurant with good selections and attentive service.

Rydges has a nice price point given the hotel staff and quality environment. The Brasserie and Restaurant is a different story however. I experienced under-motivated people and long wait for the pricy food.
