Welcome to Rendezvous Grand Hotel Auckland, superbly located in the city centre close to Queen Street and Viaduct Harbour.
Concierge was very helpful. The photographer for the hotel's pictures was a magician because he certainly did an expert job at brushing up and photo shopping the website pictures.
The hotel was VERY WORN and looks seedy. The carpets were dirty, furnishings well used, and walls scarred and in desperate need of painting. The mediocre breakfast buffet cost $31 per person and didn't include omlettes. I should have done my homework on this one.
The room are very nice and comfortable but the air condition did not work well which is the major deduction on the score
The air condition not on
Evening drinks, canapes in Club Lounge. Fast, included wifi.
No power outlets near beds or center night table.
Lovelypool, good gym facilities, spacious room, comfortable king size bed
Breakfast was not as good a spread as most international hotels, but acceptable as part of nzd 169 room rate.
Prompt response from services/facility staff (see below)
When I first arrived my room was not cleaned, however, upon notifying the services/facility staff, I room was promptly changed and with good service. Maybe I haven't travelled enough, or maybe its not a common thing in nz, but where was the hotel-provided toothpaste?
Nice and handy location Large rooms value for money Easy acsess to car park
The room which I & my wife stayed was spacious, the bed was big enough for the two of us & comfortable. The room facilities were also great especially the bathroom with nice warm feeling heat-lamp lights. Definately will recomend the hotel to friends & families. I think it was value for money for the room we stayed. Rendezvous had resonable prices on the net compared to other hotels in the same area.
Nothing in particular. Nothing special about this hotel.
All the rooms are located on inner circular balconies/corridors and this makes you hear too much mess around coming from the foyer at the ground floor.
