“The STAFF make the place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

The staff, the staff, the staff MAKE this place!!! I cannot say that enough..This is not a four star hotel by any means, but the staff makes it feel that way. Very friendly, professional, and knowledgable. The lobby is nothing to brag about but the rooms are nice and clean! Quite honestly, the rooms don't match the lobby! Room service is great and food is good. In my opinion, food at the Hibachi place inside was good but NOT worth the money! If you can, take my advice, SAVE your money, and go venture out. Its within walking distance to downtown area. You can see the SkyTower from the hotel. Lots of shopping nearby and about a 15-20min walk to the harbour area for ferries. Plan accordingly before you get there to make the most of your time! Buses are nearby as well. Venture out. This is a perfect hotel but get lost because Auckland is absolutely beautiful!! Enjoy:)

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view of the city. The higher the better.

My husband and I stayed at Rendezvous Grand Hotel. We were able to check in very early, which was awesome because we had just flown 13 hours on a plane. The room was clean and spacious. The staff treated us well.

We booked a girl's week away via Virgin Holiday's and had an accommodation/flight package. Before arriving we had called the hotel to pre-book some tours and get some recommendations on Day Spa's and they were happy to help us out.

Location wise - we found we saw so much more of the city as there was so much available to us in close walking distance. Armed with a local map we had no problems getting around.

Our room was clean, reasonably spacious and had everything we needed.

Meal wise we gave the buffet breakfast a go on our first morning and were a bit disappointed. However we were happy to check out some of the local cafes doing breakfast - including Best Ugly Bagels - in fact check it out for lunch as well. We had dinner a couple of times in the resturant and were quite satisfied with a local wines and food menu.

We would be happy to use the Rendezvous as our base next time we return to Auckland.

I usually choose hotels overlooking the harbour when in AKL but could not arrange one this time because of the rugby test. So I picked this one based on price and location and was extremely pleased. In fact I'll strongly consider it in future instead of the harbourside options.

Check-in was fast, rooms were large, comfortable, nicely equipped, and quiet.

Fitness centre is quite acceptable and the sauna works quite well (not always the case)

Definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: 4th floor has the fitness centre and might be more noisy.

I booked this hotel online for an overnight business trip based on price, as I had never stayed here before. Upgraded to a club room though I doubt I would do this again as I didn't think the lounge offered this value in the evening, though the breakfast was a little more impressive.Good location in downtown Auckland. Bedroom was large enough and comfortable. All things taken into account this was a good choice for the cost so on this basis I would probably stay again.

Wow - we're never staying anywhere else now! The overall experience from booking on-line and then check-in, through to meals, room size, and the wonderfully attentive duty manager (thanks Mr Santos) was fabulous. I would really recommend the Rendezvous for not just its great proximity to the city, particularly the Civic where we saw James Blunt, and the free parking, but a wonderful overall experience. When you book somewhere online, you're never quite 100% sure of what you're going to get but here our expectations were well exceeded. We're never going to stay at the Langham (the old Sheraton) again now that we've discovered this. Our child-free weekends are going to be spent here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ninth floor - the floor before the concierge service floors - for great views.

Had a great stay at this hotel over Queen's Birthday weekend. The trip was for my birthday and on booking we mentioned this to them and they put us in a great room with a good view (Thanks Michael!) The room was just as expected from the photo's, very comfy and not too small. We also opted for the buffet breakfast which was very nice. We had dinner in the Katsura Restaurant downstairs, although a tad overpriced the food was of good quality. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Auckland as it is very conveniently located
