Room was lovely and clean, there was no window in our room but that worked out well because there was no morning light to wake you up and the room was well conditioned so you even notice. Highly recommend, and did I mention the tardis elevator?!"

"We stayed there in Dec 2020. Excellent service from friendly staff, room service to front counter. Very clean and modern, rooms with big beds and a fairly decent sized TV, The hotel is right in the middle of the city so we walked out of the front door straight into food places, bars, movie theatres, Te Papa, New World, KFC etc .. The Behive is not far and this hotel is around 15 mins to airport. We expected a lot of noise with the bars being so close but the hotel was super quiet (we were on level 6), The only downside was the carpark. The lanes and parking bay is sooo narrow and very difficult to negotiate. Coming down out of the parking spot was very difficult and had to have someone outside to assist - hotel carpark is $25 a day. Free parking on the road from 6pm - 8am every day FYI. Nevertheless, I would still give 5 star rating, great price for an excellent experience staying at the Oaks. Highly recommended to everyone! Thank you !!"

"Old property that serves as a backpackers, but also has private rooms, some with ensuites, some with shared facilities that are more than adequate. Nothing flash but it was warm (centrally heated with old radiator type system throughout hotel giving consistent dry heat). Mattress was reasonably new and comfortable, with clean linen. Double room was clean and spacious with relatively sparse old, solid furnishings, but perfectly suitable for a cheap overnight stay before/after a late afternoon flight, ferry, train or coach and when an early morning transfer is required. Handy to Bluebridge Ferry terminal and across the road from the central Wellington Railway Station, with an airport bus stop and Intercity bus stop within a 3 minute walk. Not really a destination hotel, and by no means of a high standard, but comfortable, straightforward and friendly. The price is the winner here. "

"Great room. Got the cheapest one and it was clean and well appointed. The best part was that it was very spacious. Only downfall was that there was a constant pouring water noise in the room above which kept me awake most of the night, but I’m assuming that it will be fixed and is only temporary. Great location. Walk right out onto lampton quay. "

"I've been to plenty of Wellington hotels, backpackers and Airbnbs but this was my first trip to Comfort and I was delighted with the service, which was unfailingly enthusiastic, warm, helpful and prompt. Premises are very central and well appointed ... double glazed windows (important on Cuba Street), very clean and tidy, good facilities. I got a special price and was thrilled. Thanks for a great stay. I'll be back. PS: Fidel's Cafe is just over the road and this is a real plus ... fantastic food and service."

"it is the second time that we stay at the Rydges Wellington Hotel. as in the previous time, we were pleased with our room which was large, with a big window looking at the city. the staff were helpful and friendly. there was, as before, a charge of 30 nz dollars a day for the car valet parking, but since it is in the centre of town, it is understandable. the only drawback, -and this seems to be common for the hotels here- is the high cost if we would have wanted to use internet. (you are given 20 minutes free, though) we would not doubt to come back here."

"we had a great time during our 2 day stay, this place was easy to find after we turned of the freeway , we checked in and was shown straight to the room , a little gem ,the king suite , a very spacious big room but a down fall was the small T V , but we did not go there just to watch movies , The king suite is away from the pub , above a vacant shop so was quieter , For us (King Suite) ,there was a front door leading up stairs to the entry door to our room , Now the place is a "PUB" , the actual web site really needs to be redone , it looked a run done pub from the photos but on entry the place is a big open area ,bar in the middle with a restaurant to the back ,smoking out the side , clean with plenty of seating and sport channel TV's , we had plenty of help from Cameron and Karen ( hope spelt correct ) any thing we asked for beer ,wine ,food or local enquiry's, i.e. maps, walks etc. they help out , with the local beer on tap , its a different taste to home ,I as allowed the taste testing before choosing a pint which was great , Now the Shepherds Arms is roughly a 25 min walk to the Westpac Stadium which is why it was chosen the location or if your keen a 20 min walk through the Botanical gardens to the Wellington Tram which takes you down the hill into downtown Wellington , this was a great stay for an old building "
