    Very good

    The size and comfort of the room. Its relative proximity to the Events Centre

    The linen and bed covers were tired and need replacement. The towels also need to be better quality with the ones provided consigned to the pool area perhaps

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The room was very spacious and extremely comfortable.I particularly enjoyed the activities on offer-gym, heated indoor swimming pool and sauna.The walk into Rotorua took only about 10-15 minutes, so the location of the hotel was perfect.

    Very good

    The staff were efficient, respectful and professional. The sheets and towels were clean.

    I was disappointed in the level of presentation of our room. We have heard of Rydges and chose to stay there as a treat. Admittedly we got it for a good price but we still expected quality or we would have stayed some where newer for the same or less and nothing advertised in the 'deal' indicated we wouldn't get quality. The room was tired looking which I can understand happens after a few years but I expected an outstanding level of cleanliness - the room needed dusting, the white shower curtain was very dark and mouldy at the bottom, their was a huge stain under the bathroom sink, the tray holding the information books was coated in dust, the bathroom floor had stains on it and the room curtains need washing as they smelled musty.

    Liked the dedicated rooms with smoking balconies. Friendly staff.

    The hotel is a bit "tired". Some carpet in the lobby has stretched.

    No appropriate table for use of computer. No good lighting to work in the room. Poor access to television options. No kitchen knifes or forks.

    Superb

    We came to the Rydges on Friday and stayed one night. We went down to the hotel bar and discovered it was happy hour - $3 drinks! The spa and pool were great plus a sauna!! Breakfast was also top notch

    Everything. The room was HUGE and we were right across the hall from the swimming pool. Loved it so much we have booked to go again in a month.

    The only thing would be it would be good to have more towels, say two for every person then you can swim and shower.

    Superb

    Spacious comfortable room with good lighting above bed for reading

    A very minor grumble. We would have liked one or two more small tables (for drinks, small items) in our room

    the service was awsome, you have some excellent staff working there, the stand out staff member was Tony he came and changed our Tv then was more than happy to help with storage of a large purchase we had made in town that afternoon.

    We liked that you can do every thing at the Rydges, from eating to excersice to relaxation, excellent

    Parking was free and lots of spaces available. Easy to get to the hotel as it was on the main street of Rotorua.

    Disappointed that there was no free internet service for the guests. A fee applied which was fairly high.

    We had the deluxe twin room and it was very spacious allowing us to move around the room easily. On site restaurant and bar is always a plus. Absolutely loved how kids stayed and eat for free - definately a huge plus for this hotel. Pool area was great. Like how the guest laundry was free to use unlike other places who charge you

    Only a minor thing but found the parking to be a hit and miss event. Not sure if allocated parking would help but found some guests were using two car parks and if you missed out, you ended up parking in the side carpark which are away from the hotel

    Fabulous

    The deluxe room was very spacious and comfortable and the deal we got felt good value for money

    The hotel felt a bit tired and the service was rather lacklustre. The breakfast was average and the bathroom was very dated.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The facilities-including swimming pool which was excellent for the children with well appointed adjoining spa pool to supervise. Breakfasts-excellent value and good food for the whole family to start the day. Big clean room sufficient for the 4 of us.

    No specific dislikes-carpets & decor just starting to get a little tired

    Very good

    The size of the room was very good - lovely and spacious

    The room could do with a small face lift just to make it feel more modern - just put in a glass shower and replace the bathroom and kitchen bench tops - everything else was perfect.
