Reviewed 14 October 2013

We LOVED the Rendezvous. It was a little bit of luxury on our camper van holiday around the beautiful South Island. The staff were incredible - accommodating and approachable, the rooms were beautiful and t he meals were delicious - we particularly LOVED the Continental Breakfast. They do a GREAT job. The city itself looks like it's been through a war and when we walked through the streets to find our favourite cafes, bars or pizza restaurant from previous visits it was sad to see they had not survived the mass destruction of the brutal earthquakes that devastated the city. Christchurch was a gorgeous city and it will be again. I'll go back there again - earthquakes won't keep me away and I'll stay at the Rendezvous again - honestly I could not have been happier with my 3 nights there. Hopefully when the city has been rebuilt or reinvented things won't be quite so expensive.

Fairly new so everything was in good condition. Staff were friendly and breakfast was good. Convenient location in CBD area so many things were within walking distance. Surprised at the level of noise in the room during an overnight storm.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on Tripadvisor.
Your comments have been shared with the staff.
We are located in a convenient location especially now that more shops are starting to re-open in the central city area.
Christchurch has experienced some heavy storms at the beginning of October which would have disturbed you.

Thank you again for your feedback, we look forward to having you stay in the future.

We stayed at the Rendezvous Christchurch as it was the only central hotel we could find that had a gym and sauna. All the staff have been friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, comfortable, modern and central. There is no free wifi in the rooms but thats about the only complaint

Very convenient location right in the heart of the devastated downtown area. Everything of interest including restaurants, in walking distance. Rooms small, but comfortable, and staff at reception happy to help with bookings.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was nicely appointed but quite small with no logical place to put one suitcase, let alone two. For a new hotel I was a little surprised that we could hear noise from neighbouring rooms, especially noisy plumbing.

Nice to have free wifi, but it is only available in the reception area. The rooms had free wired broadband which isn't much use with iPhones or iPads.

We ate in the restaurant the first night and were pleasantly surprised by a well presented tasty meal.

New Regent St is opposite the hotel entrance and has recently reopened with a range of daytime cafes. Not much else open nearby, but walking distance to the restart mall.

The view from our room was towards Cathedral Square, with all the demolition in the central city it was hard to work out what had been in some of the gaps.

Quite hard to navigate to and from the hotel as many of the city streets are still blocked or have roadworks.

It feels very strange to be staying in the once busy centre of this devastated area, looking out at the ruins below. The taxi ride from the airport was circuitous and expensive ($50), and the streets below were deserted on a Saturday night.
However the hotel staff were pleasant and welcoming, and our room spacious and comfortable.
The bar was a warm and cosy place to watch sport on television and our meal in the restaurant was good... there is not much choice of dining options nearby
There was a strange musty smell in our upper floor room which I can only assume was dampness, although this was not apparent.
Fittings were new and of good quality and air conditioning quiet and efficient.

Room Tip: Rooms on a high level are a good vantage point to view the reconstructed New Regent Street shop fron...

Just a really great hotel - no dramas here. For a start there's free wi-fi - which is becoming a rarity these days! Everything works really well and is up to the standards you would expect of a decent hotel. There's also i-pod docks in the rooms so you can play your own music should you wish. The hotel staff are what really make the place though - super friendly and helpful. I am happy to stay here every time I come to Christchurch!
