Unlocking Wellington with QT & Rydges Hotels

Wellington will be high on the list for New Zealand holidaymakers considering where to spend their summer holidays this year, thanks to the recent launch of Rydges and QT Hotels and Resorts’ ‘Unlock Wellington’ campaign.

QT Wellington, Rydges Wellington, Rydges Wellington Airport and The Thorndon Hotel Wellington by Rydges are all part of the EVENT Hotels & Resorts portfolio and have joined together to offer special rates for families and couples right through summer to early February 2021. EVENT is offering guests the opportunity to unwind and explore corners of the capital city, by unlocking great accommodation & dining offers served with a side of the city’s best activity deals with local partners.

Every guest who books a stay as part of the special ‘Unlock Wellington’ campaign will have access to exclusive partner rates at a variety of local attractions and QT & Rydges dining venues for the duration of the campaign. These include tours with Te Wharewaka o Pōneke and Wellington Museum Tours, special rates at Space Place and Miramar Golf Club and at a selection of QT & Rydges Hotels delicious dining options such as the Portlander Bar and Grill, Hot Sauce, Whiskey Lima Golf and Glasshouse Bar and Grill.

Couples looking for a relaxing getaway will enjoy indulging in QT Wellington’s indoor pool, spa pool, sauna and fitness centre, with the hotel perfectly poised on Wellington’s waterfront opposite Te Papa. And families wanting to escape to the capital city will love Rydges Wellington’s family-friendly indoor pool facility and spa pool. Both Rydges Wellington and Thorndon Wellington are located within walking distance to the train station for regional exploration, and Rydges Wellington Airport is the best spot for that extra level of convenience when flying in and out of Wellington.

Guests who wish to explore the greater Wellington region will also find great attraction deals to entice them: reduced rental car rates with GO Rentals, fantastic rates at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club and special rates with Rovers Tour Group, who offer a range of tours including Lord of the Rings locations and the south coast’s seal colony.

"We are excited to bring the value-packed nature of ‘Unlock Wellington’ initiative to Kiwis who are eager to explore the city this summer, with special rates for both families and couples. We’re positive this will encourage holidaymakers to include a Wellington escape in their Christmas stocking this year," said EVENT Hotels & Resorts General Manager for New Zealand Operations, Simon White.
