Comfort and convenience

Posted Dec 7, 2017
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, comfortable rooms.
Location: Excellent location. It is walking distance from restaurants, shops, trolleys, points of interest--Cathedral, art gallery, museum, park, river walks.
The Rendezvous Hotel is a great place to stay in beautiful Christchurch. It is walking distance to restaurants, shops, and points of interest--only two blocks from the cathedral. The hotel is nicely furnished and the rooms are clean and comfortable with modern bathrooms. The staff are friendly and are quick to offer assistance any way they can. It was a pleasure to stay in such a first rate hotel.

Nice hotel, small rooms, good location

Posted Dec 4, 2017
Pros: Clean, good location.
Cons: Room size is small, bed was too soft.
Location: Good location - heart of city nearby on one side; shopping eating conveniences nearby. Empty cleared lots awaiting redevelopment are on other side.
Christchurch is indeed still recovering and will be for some time. This hotel is on the edge of cleared lots that are awaiting reconstruction. It is very close to the old cathedral and some shopping and dining. Convenience shopping is close by. The main drawback is small rooms and not the best beds as far as comfort (very soft). Overall, a nice place to stay - accurately depicted by the photos and the bulk of reviews.

Great hotel & friendly staff... the open fireplace in the lobby gave me quite a bad headache as it smelt like there was constant gas leak... aside from this everything was perfect. Great room & lovely bathroom...

No king bed, not much of a view

Posted Nov 11, 2017
I had booked a king bed room with view. Though we did have an okay view of the surrounding hills, most of the view was construction site. The bed was most certainly not a king. I was assured by the staff that king beds are "not the same as in North America." I found this odd as the king size bed we booked at a hotel in Queenstown was much bigger than this bed. Also, the bed was the same size as the queen bed I currently have at a hotel in Auckland. Though the room was nice and tidy, it was extremely small and not worth the price we paid.
