“Very good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed in a family room on the 9th floor. The room was clean and comfortable, not too big. Good curtains to darken the room.

Friendly staff and efficient service, plus a good location.

Overall a very good option for Auckland

We usually stay at the Heritage which is our favourite hotel in the city, but thought this time we would try something different. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were fantastic and the kids enjoyed the indoor pool. The gym was really well equipped which is a huge plus and is right next to the pool. We splashed out as it was my birthday and went to the Japanese Restaurant in the hotel. This was exceptional. The food was to die for! My children loved it as well which is always a bonus! I thought it was good value. The breakfast was also exceptional with lots to choose from, although it was a little grubby, there was food on the floor and our table needed a really good clean. I overheard someone saying that there had been a big group in and the hotel was fully booked so that may explain it.

Dear michellen_NZ,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland, we were delighted to read that you tried us for the first time and you enjoyed your stay. I will also pass your comments on to the wider team who as I was will be delighted to read your comments, especially with regard to our service, Katsura Japanese Restaurant and our breakfast selection.

I would like to offer you my sincerest apologies for the fact that although you really enjoyed the selection you found the breakfast area in less than pristine condition, I will also discuss this with the restaurant team also.

Once again, thank you for trying the Hotel and we do look forward to having you return in the very near future.

Best regards Paul

I stayed 4 nights at this Hotel while on business in Auckland. From the time I arrived, they were very hospitible and accomodating. Older gent on the door was lovely. Old fashioned service you dont see anymore. Room was a good size. House keeping couldnt do more to assit you. It was very good service actually (and Ive stayed at alot of hotels all over the world) It was a short walk into the main street, so the location was good too. Had room service all four nights, it was good (expecially the garlic bread) I had a hire car and got parking in the carpark every time. Only one minor thing- i was situated on level 5, above the gym so between the hours of 4-9pm you could hear the dropping of weights and music pumping. This was a tad annoying cause i go to bed early and could hear the music through the walls.Other than that, it was an enjoyable stay and would definatley stay again on my next trip either personal or business.

Room Tip: Dont stay on level 5, above the gym:)

We stayed 4 nights at the hotel, the breakfast is very good, the gym is fine and the sauna and pool are perfectt.
The most important is that the location is perfect and the employees of the Hotel treat the guests very good.
Thanks to the Rendezvous, if I go back tio New Zealand for sure I will come back to the Hotel.

Stayed here for the night midweek. Lovely staff from the concierge who greeted me as I walked through the door and relieved me of numerous bulky bags, as well as excellent service from the porter, the reception staff and restaurant waitstaff.
Loved the spacious bathroom and super dark room (not easy in the city).
We had a double bed which was a little on the small side but perfectly adequate for one night.
Loved having pancakes for breakfast - as welcome change from the usual buffet offerings.
Would definitely return.

I've stayed at this hotel three times in the last 12 months as the service and quality of the rooms is outstanding. The price per night is low compared to some high end hotels in the city, so you should take advantage of this! It doesn't look so great from the outside but internally it's gone through a huge renovation. Staff are very friendly and attentive. The rooms are spacious, clean, modern and have an amazing bathroom with huge bath tub and separate shower. The beds are very comfortable. Will definitely stay there again in the near future!

We stayed one night at the Rendezvous Grand. The rooms had recently been renovated, everything looked clean and modern. Good service from staff. Good central city location, easy walk down Queen St to viaduct and waterfront resturants.
