Nicely furnished room, very comfortable bed. Room service quick and tasty food. I was totally impressed with the accoustic insulation... looking out over the runway on a rainy and windy night and I couldn't hear a thing.

For a 6am flight, I wanted to be near the airport. At the airport, even better- but only if I’m comfortable. Which I was! Very nice room and amenities. I did dine for dinner at the hotel. The restaurant was well occupied. The staff was friendly. My only concern to be careful they take your order correctly. I ordered wine, salad and soup. The only thing they got correct was the soup. I ended up over paying for the salad because I asked for a side salad and I got the large w/ added chicken. Didn’t ask for that. EVEN verified when the server came around- “is this the small salad?” Yes it is. Well, that’s not what the bill said. Annoying. When tired and traveling I’m not going to spend extra time making this correction for them. I’ll just be sure to mention it in my review.

Made all the difference in getting up early for our flight. Great service and the room was so quiet. Fantastic feeling to get up and then be at the airport with no fuss whatsoever. I will most definitely be a repeat customer

Great stay so that I could depart on an early Tasman flight. The welcome was very warm, the dinner delicious and it was great to know that breakfast was available from 4:30am. My room was comfortable and clean. Best of all, the wake up service worked as I’d not set my alarm correctly. All in all, it was difficult to fault. As I often have to overnight on Tasman flights, I’ll now out of my way to use Wellington in preference to other NZ gateway airports because of the Rydges.

Was wondering how far it would be to carry my luggage from airport, didn't realise it is literally just up an escalator! Great location. Kids eat breakfast free in restaurant and 11am check out was really nice. Would definitely stay again.

Booked through an agency site and communications with hotel frequent and professional. Check in staff confused us with the difference between a requested upgrade and having two beds in a room. Bathroom configuration had toilet immediately behind bathroom door. Suits single person and not couple. Shower water did leak out of the shower cavity into the bathroom and out to the main room. Otherwise okay. Check out completed without issue. Access to the hotel with bags proved the most difficult, unable to find a lift up to the hotel. Would recommend

Lovely room with the most comfortable bed and a great shower. Very prompt check-in and check-out. The staff at check-in and in the bar and restaurant were all helpful and friendly. The terminal is just down the stairs. Would definitely stay again.

We had to overnight in Wellington for a competition weekend close by. Purely picked out by internet search, our room lived up to the hype. A spacious room and a bathroom to match. Clean and comfortable, recommended for sure.

We chose Rydges being right in the airport grounds as we had such an early flight to catch. Our room was lovely and clean and being right in the airport was remarkably quiet. Amenities were close by and room service is 24/7

Beautiful rooms with the most comfortable beds after long flights and epic waterfall showers, movies waiting to lul you to sleep. Amazing venue, great food and adventurers will find the Doctors Phone booth with a wondering Dalek, and the airport with Smaug and Gandalf on the Eagles.
