“Good business hotel. Small functional rooms. Friendly staff.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I staid there a few times while visiting CHC for 2-day business trips. The rooms are small and functional. The staff is friendly. The bed is comfortable and the breakfast does the job.

I recommend this hotel for a short business trip.

Hi there,

You are correct, the hotel is perfect for the corporate traveller. The facilities offer you a 'home away from home' with clean, comfortable rooms and a good breakfast to start your day. Im pleased to hear you found the staff friendly also. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you are in Christchurch.

Kind Regards,
Brad Watts

Nice quiet night. The porter was very helpful the next morning and stored our luggage before an afternoon flight.
My only comment would be at check in if reception pointed out the basics. Eg: where the lifts are (I found the layout confusing), restaurant hours etc.
We had breakfast in a small cafe nearby, there are several outside the hotel.

Thank you for your response.

Our porters at Rendezvous Christchurch are very welcoming and do a great job to assist our guests. My apologies the hotel facilities were not explained clearly upon check in and will ensure the reception team advise all guests coming into the hotel. Our restaurant offers a great range of breakfast options however there are also some great cafes nearby the hotel.

Kind Regards,
Brad Watts

Had a night there at the end of our holiday in NZ. Enjoyed the nice rooms and friendly service. Only downside was paying for parking and our car wasn't even in the secure carpark it spent the night on the driveway. Not really secure!

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry to hear your car however was not parked in our secure parking.....It is possible that our valet brought the car down earlier as this is our holding area when it becomes busy. I shall follow up to ensure this is correct.

Many thanks,
Brad Watts

We had a very short overnight stay at the Rendezvous. In late at night, out early next morning. I'd bought a cheap online deal which included parking and a dining voucher.

When we arrived we received a very friendly greeting and the demeanor didn't change even when I produced my bargain priced voucher. The front desk staff were helpful and even reminded us that the voucher included a dining component. I asked about going for a run the next morning and they provided some helpful tips on getting to Hagley Park which was necessary given the road closures that are still in place in Christchurch.

The room was small but had everything needed for one night. As this hotel is new, all fittings and furnishings are in great condition. We found the room a little warm and couldn't quite work out how to sort out the balance of air con and heating, but it was a minor issue.

Check out was easy. We were travelling as a couple heading on holiday and this hotel really is geared towards the business traveller but for an overnight holiday stay it is just fine. I can't rate the food because we didn't end up eating in the restaurant, there were local cafes we wanted to try.

Hi there,

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. Christchurch is a joggers dream with nearby Hagley Park that has some of the best tracks anyone could wish for in a city centre. A shame you couldnt try out our restaurant, maybe next time!

Good value for money. Nice clean hotel with very friendly staff. Right in the CBD. Only key down with these guys is you have to pay an additional $30 per day for parking which always annoys me. And there is no wifi in the rooms however there is in the lobby and there is broadband in the rooms.
Other than that no complaints. Nice quiet stay.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are one the only hotels to offer secure carparking in Christchurch. While there is a charge for this, at present we do have some great specials which include this complimentary. Alternatively, there is free parking across the road which guests are welcome to park in, however this is not secure.

Kind Regards,
Brad Watts

2nd time I have stayed here...
First time was before the earthquake..
Overnighted here last week ... check in was painless and simple.
The room was modern and tidy.
The bed was very comfortable and slept like a baby
The staff were helpful, the bar and resturant were great.

I would not rave about this hotel. While it was ok it was not great and I prefer staying at The Grange B&B when in Christchurch. It is new so rooms nicely decorated. BUT terrible terrible noise in each room due to the way the air con vents are set up. Five of us stayed so five rooms, each with the same TERRIBLE problem of unreasonable loud noise coming from within the air con vent. It reminded me of the noise some elevator shafts make when the lift goes up and down. It is an obvious fault of some sort with the design of this new hotel.

The location is not nice either with it in the construction ghost town part of Christchurch old CBD. I personally did not have a great sleep or enjoy being in a high rise in Christchurch (having been in Christchurch in the Feb 2011 earthquake I just didn't feel safe). I see no reason to want to ever stay here again as there are much better options in Christchurch - I normally stay at The Grange - much better location & set up.

The staff were nice - the room service staff particularly. The food also was good.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback. I am sorry to hear that there were some aspects of your stay that you did not enjoy. We have not had complaints about our air conditioning making this noise previously so will have our engineer look into this to see if there was a fault. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The hotel is situated in the city centre and while this area is part of the ongoing rebuild, we do have many operational attractions right on our door step for guests to enjoy such as New Regent Street, Cathedral Junction and the Tram. I am glad you enjoyed the food and service we provided.

Kind Regards,
Brad Watts
