“Central location, clean, comfortable and value for money.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Good sized rooms that are very comfortable. I understand that refurbishment of a lot of the rooms is underway. There was no card key security on the elevators and the rooms' doors had standard key entry (not card key), but that is only a very minor criticism. The service was good. Nothing at all wrong with the room. There is valet parking available at NZ$35.00 per night. However, I opted to park my own car in the attached public car park for only NZ$15.00 per night which was very good value. We stayed for one night and then a further two nights the following week and enjoyed both stays. Bar staff were obliging. Cannot comment on the breakfast facility as we chose not to use it. Overall, very good va,ue for money and would recommend it.

Dear KenMahon,

Thank you for your review of Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland and your satisfaction with regard to value for money, the good size rooms and over all your recommendation. One thing I would like to ensure you is that 100% of our guest rooms here at Renezvous Grand Hotel Auckland have a card lock system, the hotel was built with this system and we have never had hard keys, they present far too much risk for guests.
Presently our elevators are being upgraded and upon return they will also revert back to having a card lock system
.
Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Best regards Paul

Everything we wanted to do in Aukland was within easy walking distance of this hotel. It sits part way up a hill, just above the main arts center plaza. Staff was friendly and helpful, and arranged an early check-in for us. We were with a tour group and arrived 2 days early - the extra nights at the hotel were very good value.

The room was quite large, especially for a city hotel, scrupulously clean and perfectly maintained. The bed was firm and wonderfully comfortable, there was a wide selection of pillows, and the linens were luxurious. The bath was well arranged and had good water pressure.

We were given 3 hours free wire-free internet per 24/hr period, which at the time I thought a bit miserly. Turns out that was the best offer of the 8 hotels we visited in NZ, so they get full marks for internet also.

Since we normally settle for tea and cereal for breakfast we generally skip the hotel breakfast buffets but it was included in the tour package. This one had a particularly nice selection of fresh fruit and breads and was probably a better than average value.

All in all, a very nice stay in a much-above-average hotel.

My family had 3 nights at this lovely hotel. We had a king deluxe room which was lovely but there were 3 of us so we had to get a roll-away which was no extra charge. The bed was nice and comfortable and very clean. I got cold and asked for a blanket which was also no problem. The bathroom was nice and big which had a bath with a low shower and a separate shower. The toilet was behind the door which made it quiet private. The shower had a good water pressure which is not often found in hotels. The house keeping was very good and cleaned the room very good and when we came back the hotel room was very tidy. Room service was quick and they were very friendly. The pool was a bit nosie but that didn't matter. The pool wasn't the warmest and could be warmer, but it had good hours, 6am-10pm. We got a good value for our money and the hotel was quiet cheep compered to some others. There was a tunnel access from queen st which was really cool. But over all we were really only wanting food, a bed and toilet.

Room Tip: Higher floors less road noise

Dear WVtourist53,

Thank you for your review of Rendezvous Grand Hotel, we were pleased to read that you and your family enjoyed the 3 night stay with us. I was really pleased to see you mention value for money, this is a brand promise with all Rendezvous Hotels and it is great that you felt this was provided to you. We do have an issue trying to get an even temperature in the pool and this is being addressed following the comments on this website and our own investigations.
Thank you once again and we look forward to your return to New Zealand and Rendezvous Grand Hotel in the near future.

Best regards Paul

We stayed here for 3 nights during the school holidays and got a good price for our room. We had a king deluxe room, which was a standard hotel room. Nicely decorated, bed very comfortable and bathroom very roomy with bath and separate shower. Shower had good water pressure, a feature not often found in hotels! Room very clean and housekeeping did a fantastic job servicing the room daily, like a full spring clean, awesome when living in a hotel room for several days! When we phoned room service, it was quick, friendly and efficient. Hotel is at top end of Queen st, so a good 5 minute walk to shops and cafes. Hotel suprisingly quiet, given location by motorway. On the negative side, great to have a pool, however, it was suppose to be heated! Very cold and unpleasant to swim in. This is an old hotel that has been refurbished, lobby and hallways are old and dated with no ambience. Staff are adequately friendly, however, I like how previous reviewer described them , 'polite but supermarket style service '. I would stay here again if I got a good deal

Room Tip: Request a room that is on a high floor to minimise traffic noise, and also away from lift area

Dear Pricie

Thank you for your review of Rendezvous Grand Hotel. We were pleased to read your many positive comments with from the value for money through to the location and proximity to Queen Street. We certainly take action on our swimming pool with regard to its temperature; it is a heated pool but as you have described certainly not enough.

We enjoyed our stay here and will happily stay here again when we return to Auckland. Without fail, the staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good, not great, but the selection was more than adequate and overall was great value. The location is excellent, just a short walk from a variety of restaurants and shops. Beds were comfy and a good night's sleep was had. Cannot fault!

On the edge of the inner CBD - close enough to walk to some nice eateries - the hotel appears popular with tour groups and business travellers looking for good value. And I think it delivers. The rooms are smart and roomy for the price bracket. I got used to the fact the in house TV/movie/remote control didn't work properly, despite a couple of helpful visits from room service who didn't solve the problem. My situation saw me eat from room service for a couple of nights, and I was pleasantly surprised - the Japanese bento was tasty, and a steak delivered cooked just how I ordered it - a tricky feat.

in the end, I can't give this an excellent because it had the typical polite-but-supermarket style service on the front desk, and a briskness in general that leaves you a little cool. Maybe I just don't like large hotels.

Room Tip: I had a standard king room. It was quite roomy, so the better standards should be good too.

Dear Rocky_and_Biglegs

Thank you for your review of Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland. We were pleased to read that you found the Hotel location close to the CBD and close to Auckland’s nice Eateries and that overall we delivered a value for money experience.
We will investigate the remotes for the TV’s, this is the first such problem to come to our attention and I thank you for advising us of this. I will also pass on your feedback to both our Room Service and Japanese Kitchens with regard to the satisfaction of your meals.

I also know the Team will join me in passing on our sincerest apologies with regard to a lack of real personalised service, this is a very large Hotel in fact New Zealand’s largest but we really focus on creating a warm welcome for all of our guests, we are sorry that you did not experience this to the level that you enjoy.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland in the very near future.
