4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

stayed here for a nice night away to celebrate and it was lovely . We had a 1 bedroom unit and every thing was very nice frm the front desk to the room and back again , highly recommend for a night away

We stopped here after a long day of travelling before we continued on to mount cook. We received outstanding customer service at checkin and also at checkout with complimentary takeaway coffees for our drive ahead with a recommendation for our next hotel which we gladly took! The rooms were great with comfy beds and the rooms appeared quite sound proof as we didn't hear a thing. It was walking distance from a couple of restaurants and the reception staff gave us recommendations for shopping centres to get what we needed for the rest of our trip. Overall very happy and would stay again!

Pleasant decor. Good Facility set up for wheelchair including fully accessable bathroom. Some thought had gone into planning and position of the room. Staff attentive and welcoming. Nothing too much trouble and efficient too. Up to date Tech and WiFi. Bloody Mary Bar added to the atmosphere with an upmarket Bar Experience. Great Salt and Pepper Squid.

My room has 2 bedrooms and a sofa, with a small basic kitchen.I stayed in Rydges Latimer with my family at the end of June. The living room is clean, tidy and comfortable. The beds are comfortable and clean. The air conditional is warm enough for us in 2 rooms during winter. The toilet is very clean and the toiletries provided is sufficient for four of us to use. The staffs are polite and friendly and I especially like the breakfast served in Rydges Latimer, the food and the restaurant. I would be likely to visit Rydges Latimer Hotel again if I were in Christchurch.

We stayed here for three nights in a 1bdrm suite and enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff were always welcoming and helpful; the in-hotel breakfast was generously laid out with something for everyone; and the steak dinner we had here was top class. The room was nicely decorated so it felt comfortable and cosy. The sofa and armchair were great for sitting and relaxing and stylish at the same time. We had friends up for a cup of tea and it felt just like hosting them in our own home. The bed was very comfortable, and the towels were fluffy, so we were very relaxed. And, at the end of our week away from home we really appreciated being able to access the efficient laundry machines on the ground floor which saved us from the dreaded washing after getting home. I'd love to stay here again.

A modern hotel with facilities to match. A great restaurant & bar on site that compliments the accommodation nicely. A short walk (5 minutes) across Latimer Park to the CBD, shopping and the Avon river, parks and tourist spots. New Regent Street is a good spot for visiting for cafe & restaurants.

Had a brief stay at Rydges Christchurch for a business event. The hotel has a fairly modern feel. The rooms are decent sized, have a small desk and comfy bed. The bathrooms are a little small yet functional. The lighting in excellent which really helps. The self serve laundry room is a welcome sight. 2 washers (paid for by the hotel) and 2 dryers which are nominal cost ($2). The fitness room is a bit small but work for a basic workout. The staff was great and very helpful. They also have umbrella's which is good for Christchurch weather. The location is just off Latimer Square and a short walk to city center. It will be wonderful as soon as they complete all the city center rebuild. The conference rooms are great and also have their own bathroom facilities.

Brilliant hotel very friendly and helpful staff, good value and excellent room layout for a family as we had two bedrooms, lounge area and a small kitchen. Great location The Bloody Mary restaurant was fantastic we had the most superb meal and the best steak in the whole of our two week NZ tour Definitely go to this hotel if you visit Christchurch

We ate at Bloody Mary's in a private room as we were part of a tour group. We had a choice of 3 different appetizers, entrees and desserts as well as wine with our meal. The meals we all had were excellent. I would definitely recommend!

Rydges is an ideal place to stay when in central Christchurch. The staff are very friendly and helpful- nothing is a problem. Check in and out was slick and professional. Rooms are spacious and exceedingly clean. Can highly recommend.
