My wife and I had booked a ten-week trip, covering 11 countries, for our 40th anniversary, and New Zealand was the eighth country visited in our trip, where we had booked a 15-day tour of both islands with Travelmarvel by APT. The tour kicked off in Auckland, where we were booked into Rydges and would meet the other travellers on the same trip. This hotel is quite well located, only a one-minute walk to the Sky Tower, if you fancy a panoramic view over the city, and around 5 – 10 minutes to the waterfront and ferry port. We had a nice room, with a good shower and comfortable bed. The room had an iron and ironing board, hair dryer and a large safe for any valuables. Our evening meal was organized by the Tour Operator and the food was fine, with a good selection of wines and beers available from the bar. Breakfast was very good and was served in the same area as our evening meal. Staff were friendly and efficient, especially considering they had to deal with such a large group (40 people) checking in and out around the same time.

I found the Hotel Manager James exceptionally helpful, welcoming, flexible accomodating,polite and a real credit to his employers and the tourist industry in general. I have had excellent service and been phoned on a daily basis asking if they could assist me in any way a plentyful supply of compilmentary toiletries, drinks, milk sugar,soap ect has been supplied without the need to ask. The attractive rooftop area of the hotel is utilised and covered and heated the area is availble for exercise, meetings, weddings and functions of all types. I have found the room service meals are of execptional quaility with excellent healthy ingredients of adequate volume which is often a fail for many five star hotels. Generally the Hotel room fittings are modern new paint and carpet with modern bathrooms, iron ironing board,fridge,king bed,armchair,plenty of pillows,desk,free wi fi, endless T.V Channels the propety cannot be faulted thanks a large part I suspect to the Hotels Manager. I have enjoyed my stay very much and would recommend the property to anyone.

Hotel room a good size with a comfortable bed but the view into a quadrangle was not the best. Breakfast buffet had a wide range on offer, if a bit pricey (Auckland prices?). All the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we arrived after 30 hours travelling and just wanted our bed! Worth asking the concierge about discounts on tours, etc. Hotel near to sky tower (2-3 minutes), city bus tour (by Sky tower) and harbour (10 minute walk).

Stayed after getting locked down by virus. All fine but kitchen would not allow metal cutlery and normal crockery to be used, all room service was from cardboard box . Despite lockdown rules, we were allowed to go out for exercise so it was good to get away from the room.

Thank you Stiffy192, the team and I appreciate the feedback. I would mention never in my hotel career did I think we would have to resort to serving room service in takeaway/ biodegradable containers but such is the new normal. Stay safe and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future. Kind Regards, James Billing
