Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   A really lovely hotel. Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable, short walk into town centre. Great views from the balconies. The breakfast is excellent too! Definitely stay here.

Review:   Wont stay here again. Have cancelled the conference planned. Treated like a number. This place is set up for processing bus loads of tourists. Not locals, they don't care for repeat business.

Review:   Nice hotel. Needs to be upgraded. Old and worn out. No air-conditioning in our room so we sweated. Lovely spa bath. Spacious. Lacking quality I'd expect of Rydges.

Review:   Very good bed and good breakfast. Other than that maintenance within the room needs to be reviewed, the "kitchen" had a loose seals on the fridge, loose taps and no micowave. The blinds in the room were falling of the hinges when closing the curtains and the in-room phone was broken- constantly ringing for no reason or beeping loud noises(we ended up pulling it out of the wall). Avoid getting rooms down near the laundry as its loud. Other motels will offer better service for a better price. Pay to check around before booking here.

Review:   Had a wonderful time at Rotorua Rydges! Only flaw would be no AC. The decor is antique style in rooms, but else where quite modern. The continental breakfast was amazing! We also enjoyed dinner and rm service. The dinner was phenomenal, kudos to the chefs. Everyone we encountered was so friendly and made you feel like family. Would highly recommend the Maori experience, and Hobbiton tour. Rainbow Springs was delightful, as well as the Te pui visit. The only regret would be the limited amount of time spentat the Black Sand Beach.😢
