“Perfect place to sleep and discover Auckland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Nice hotel in walking distance of the city center and all its restaurants. Big clean rooms and affordable parking at the hotel. We only stayed for one night so we didn't get to check out the pool. Also we didn't include breakfast, so no opinion on that either.

Efficient and friendly staff from start to finish of our stay. Comfortable bed, good size room, well serviced and very clean and a good breakfast selection. A very pleasant stay, plus handy location to Queen St, Skytower and Civic Theatre.

Many years ago stayed at this hotel when it was The Carlton. They have maintained their attention to detail and service focus. Everyone at the hotel was approachable and friendly. Free WiFi was a bonus. We left wanting for nothing - Thanks

Checkin was very quick all ready for us to checkin. front desk staff very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to Club deluxe room. Not much different with deluxe room. We paid for Romance Package. NZD314.00 included Buffet breakfast for 2, Dinner for 2 and free glass of wine for 2, Free wine bottle upon checkin, late check out 1pm included valet parking. I loved the fact internet free 24hrs no problems with internet connection. Manager left yummy chocolates on the table when we arrived. :) Dinner was lovely enjoyed it :) Checking out no issue no extra charges.

The room was very clean and tidy. Very good size alot of space to walk around. View of the city beautiful. I loved the bathroom very spacious and clean.

Close to shopping, shops and restaurants. Close walking distance to IMAX (Movies)

Would definitly stay here again. Loved it.

The hotel was clean, service efficient and friendly. We dined at the Straits Cafe which is their dining room and had an outstanding dinner. the Chef-James Willemsen came out personally to discuss dining options (gluten free). He was extremely knowledgable and even baked us gluten free biscuits. The head concierge was very helpful. The lobby was staffed at all times, the Atrium lounge was wonderful for drinks and nibbles! I'd definitely go back to this hotel, even if only to dine.

Only a 2 night stay, but this hotel is a gem, so close to the Auckland CBD. Our room was large, well equipped, immaculate, with a beautiful bathroom - space to burn!
The hotel lobby was impressive, and the room matched, which is great news for what was a very resonable cost.
My wife enjoyed the gym and indoor pool.
We'll be back to try their Japanese restaurant - and soon!!

Really like the lobby of this hotel. It has real potential to be a great 5 star hotel given the right renovations and management. People in the reception has really been helpful indeed in answering our questions. The hotel does exudes a jaded atmosphere with somewhat dated carpeting. As said earlier, a few touches here and there would certainly make a huge difference.... but hey, the price might also get a huge boast. On its present state, i would highly recommend it for the price and location. Would not disappoint if you are not looking for a 5 star hotel or a super 4 star hotel.

Dear Godwin Dumagat Y,

Thank you for sharing your review following your recent stay with us here at Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland.

The Hotel is rated 4.5 star we trust that this is reflected in our value for money and quality of product, on our recent upgrade we focussed on the guest rooms rather than our corridor carpets which I agree whilst in excellent condition are dated.

We do hope to continue improving the hotel in the near future and do look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Best regards
