“Great Stay!”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We booked a Club Room and enjoyed all the benefits that go along with it.
Very friendly and helpful staff and the 'special occasion' birthday bubbles were a nice touch :)
Super comfy bed and the pillows were amazing!

In fact, I enjoyed this hotel so much I am bringing my Mum here to stay when we go to the Hollies concert this month! :D

Room Tip: Do try the club room as it's definitely worth the extra $ :)

We stayed here for two nights following our arrival in NZ. It's reasonably centrally located - about ten minutes walk down to the main shopping street but there is a free city centre bus which operates every ten minutes or so (it's to residents but only 50c to others) and stops quite close to the hotel. We were given a large room with two double beds, two chairs and a table, so quite sparsely furnished. The bathroom was spacious with a separate bath and shower.
There is a pool and gym and an outdoor area close to them with sun loungers - this was very welcome as we had been to Auckland before and really just wanted to relax and get over the jet lag.
The business centre offers free use of computers and there is free Wi-Fi.
Breakfast was quite expensive but there is a nice little café run by a young Chinese couple about two minutes walk away which does excellent bacon butties.
A taxi from the airport cost us $85. We used the shuttle service going back which picked us up from the hotel and was much cheaper.
Overall, this was a perfectly adequate city hotel.

Room Tip: The pool and gym are on level 4 if you want to be close to them.

Not a bad hotel. We had a patio to our room and the whole experience was actually quit good. The staff were friendly and the room more than comfortable with a TV opposite the bath so that you could watch whilst having a soak. A bit of a labyrinth of corridors but, once you knew where you were going, worked out fine. Would highly recommend.

We stayed at The Rendevous Grand on Sat 8 February 2014. I booked online.
I remember when this was a really plush property but today it is tired and outdated.
Check in staff very pleasant although it was reasonably busy at the time.
I had booked on the Executive Floor. For this we got a large suite with a terrace. Bed comfortable and super king. Bathroom all marble and very large. The suite had a lounge and dining area with guest bathroom.
What was hard to believe was the air on unit. As this is an older property the system is old. I asked an engineer to check our air on. All was well but the dial does not go below 20 degrees C. So it was very uncomfortable.
However if you leave your key card in the slot as we did, we were able to reduce the temp but no lower than 20 degrees.
We went to the Club Lounge. This is no manned by staff during the day, you just help yourself. There was a small fridge with complimentary soft drinks and water. Snacks were small dry crackers and there was a coffee machine too. All in all no the private oasis I was expecting. Wee spent no time in there.
We ate dinner in Straits the on site restaurant. Service ok but food pretty marginal and the worst Caesar Salad with bacon that had seen better days. Breakfast was equally bad.
I popped a button and needed a Sewing kit. Couldn't find it in the suite, rang Housekeeping. No problem they said but it took a further phonecall and around 20 minutes for the kit to arrive.
The Hotel was quiet overnight and we were pleased about this.
Easy to get to Queen Street.
We did no use the pool or Japanese Restaurant. The Atrium bar area has seen better days.
I would not stay here again personally.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor for a quieter room.

This was the third time we have stayed at the Rendezvous Grand in Auckland. It has a very nice proximity to the cruise terminal, shopping and restaurants. We have always found it clean and nicely appointed. This trip we booked a "Show Package" that came with a dinner and buffet breakfast and both were exceptional in the Straits Cafe. But by far the best part of this very large hotel is the exceptional front of house staff. Kevin, Soli and Fernando among others were always ready to assist with their expert knowledge of the area. And although we had a late checkout at noon with our package our Hawaiian Air flight did not leave until midnight. The front of house staff kindly kept our luggage safe and sound for us all day as well as even offered to let me shower and change clothes in the ladies locker room of the gym/pool. Accommodations can always be found that are clean, new and such but the staff and their wonderful attention to their guests needs is why we keep coming back to the Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland whenever we are in NZ.
