“Fantastic Place!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

One of the nicest stays I had during my trip down under. The rooms are spacious & comfortable. The internet connection is good. The staff is helpful & always willing to help with a smile. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is centrally located & you can easily walk around the central areas of interest. Would love to be back here in future.

Hotel was great, seemed so quiet but a lot of people there. Fantastic service from all staff, friendly. Clean rooms. Great Japanese restaurant with very very yummy cheesecake. Hotel breakfast fairly standard for hotels.

We stayed for only one night. The front desk staff were efficient and pleasant. Our room was of the standard variety but comfortable. We always enjoy the breakfast at this hotel and this was included in the room rate. A big variety of food on offer and always fresh and tasty.

Grand Rendevous is fine. That is about all there is to say. A lot of conferences use it as do many bus companies and as such to independent business traveller ( me) can feel a bit less " special" than we would like.

On this occasion I chose GR because the rest of Auckland was sold out and all my usual and better located preferences were full. The check in was pleasant, the room was fine. My dinner at Straights Cafe was poor and felt a bit like eating in the student canteen with ordinary food and quite spotty and disorganised service but as the bill barely made a dent in fifty dollars it seemed reasonable.

There was a bit of Ground Hog Day about my visit. I know I have stayed here and more than once before but remember nothing about it......really. Is that good or bad?

Check out was efficient and cheery two nights later.

The one low point is at the kerb where the staff just didnt manage to make arrivers feel welcomed and departers appreciated. Hotel location is something to do with this as cabs here can be very hard to get and staff are often distracted trying to help folks who are keen to go places.

Stay again? Sure, if I have to but probably not by choice. Out of the way and not offering enough to compenstate for the inconvenience that causes.

Stayed February 2014, travelled on business

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.
