Proximity of the location to places we visited was a major benefit. The parking was a bit challenging though because of the meager space.

I enjoyed the pool in particular and the bar was nice and the service was excellent. Parking was quite easy and the hotel is close to everything. I requested a firmer bed and the staff brought we up a fold up bed with a mattress which again suited my needs. All in all I was very happy with my stay.

Short walk to Manuka shops for great cafes and restaurants. The food at Rydges was good but service was slow and sloppy with many guests getting their own. Water, cutlery etc. The bar served nice drinks and snacks. Some areas are renovated and nice. Other parts including frayed carpet need attention. Check in and out lady needs some training on customer service, rude and abrupt with disingenuous communication. She is better suited to a back office or another job. Overall the hotel met our needs is central to our needs.

Very good location, close to Manuka shops. Comfortable room, quiet area. Excellent innovation is their Express Breakfast (2 slices of toast and tea/coffee) for a modest price, much better option than the somewhat over-priced continental and full breakfasts. However the carpets and decor need upgrading urgently. Our shower water was barely warm, and we mentioned this to staff - apparently we were not the only ones with this problem.

NO PRIVACY BETWEEN ROOMS. We have stayed at Rydges before and enjoyed our stay. This time we were booked into a room adjoining another room and there was NO privacy. The occupants of the adjoining room were not noisy but you could hear EVERYTHING even the smallest sound (rustling paper, pressing the button on the deodorant can). If I did book again I would not sleep in a room that was adjoining another room.
