Fantastic”

Stay was perfect, great value for money, lovely rooms and fantastic staff. We were so pleased with the hotel we returned for our last night of stay on our NZ holiday! The only downside was the lack of free parking however I think this is common among most hotels in Christchurch city centre and a cheap alternative was available beside the hotel. Overall, I can't recommend Rendezvous highly enough.

Amazing Stay & Service”

We arrived in Christchurch late evening and got upgraded to high-storey room with stunning city view. This kind of service was excellent and not to mention the room was clean & nicely furnished. Its location was very strategic too; close to many eateries, shopping mall and tourist attractions. Overall an excellent stay at Christchurch, we would without hesitation recommend this hotel to any visitor going to Christchurch.

Great and Cosy Hotel”

Great and Cosy Hotel and close to everything

This hotel is an oasis in the devastated city of Christchurch. The facility is modern, clean, and comfortable. The staff are helpful and very pleasant. Internet access and use of a computer in the business center are free, which was a giant plus for me. The rooms were cleaned promptly and the minibar was refilled efficiently. You could walk to anywhere in the city from the hotel, and the place was very easy to locate from wherever you were because it is one of the very few tall buildings. Currently there are not too many businesses operating in the city. However, there is a nice Chinese restaurant next door to the hotel, a convenience store nearby, and a small arcade of shops right across the street.

the hotel is competitively priced, has a great location in the middle of christchurch. the hotel is new, my room was comfortable. lcd tv, airconditioner, hot water heater, electric kettle, etc all functioned well. water pressure was good. however, the bathroom floor was slippery. i accidentally locked the room safe. a request was made to have it reopened, but it was not done. the hotel provided a morning courtesy shuttle service to the railway station that is 5 km from the hotel. this was much appreciated.

My stay at The Marque Hotel”

Its a brand new hotel. The rooms are modern and well equipped.
The system used to charge for internet usage.

I found the hotel to be very comfortable and modern. It is located in the heart of town which makes it perfect for business or just to enjoy Christchurch City Center as everything is within walking distance. The only two qualms I have are that parking must be paid separately, and internet usage fees are handled in a strange manner. You are entitled to 3 hours for free, but they must be consumed at once, and you cannot stagger your usage. After that, there is a charge applied. Other than that, the staff was fantastic and the hotel it self is very warm, comfortable and modern. As far as bang for your buck, its the best. Great Hotel.

very good experience. Strongly recommend this hotel, if you are interested to take the Tram, because it is just next to the Tram Terminal. if you buy the Christchurch Pass (a tour package) you can take the tram to the Christchurch Museum, where all shuttle buses start, the Botanic Gardens also locate next to the museum. Good location The free tea bags provided in the room were so great, coffee is normal, but the tea is supper value. Food was normal, quality was good. but we mostly ate at the Casino.

Wonderful staff; knowledge of security should more eathquakes arrive; interesting views

The friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever encountered. Even the manager showed an interest in his guests. Due to the sad condition of Christchurch city centre one is unable to comment on shops, night life etc but I am very glad that I decided to come here; and I would most definitely recommend others doing so: the area has to be seen to be understood, and this is the most appropriate hotel in which to stay (it's construction enabled it to survive the earthquakes).

Whilst our room was really small some how it did not matter in the scheme of things. My husband and my self had a very emotional visit to Christchurch. After seeing the devastation of the earthquake and the impact on the Christchurch community. One can only admire the resilience of its people . And the importance of supporting tourism so that this city can grow, and flourish once again.

New Hotel centrally located
No main ligth swicth for rooms

A nice new hotel located in the middle of Christchurch City Centre. Friendly staff, willing to assist. Strangest room I had ever stayed in as it did not have a switch to turn of the main room lights, you had to pull out the room card, this ment getting up in the night to go to the bathroom a bit of a problem as the bathroom lights also would not come on unless the card was reinserted to the slot. A nice hotel regardless.

Discovery Channel, Car parking & View.

Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch is conveniently located, how ever, Christchurch has not much to offer in the CBD. The rooms are fairly small (acceptable) and there is a selection of TV channels, there is no in room WiFi. The breakfast has a good selection (we had it in room), and the late night room service is acceptable also. I would stay again if I went to Christchurch (which is probably due for another visit in about 15 years).

Our second stay at this hotel and again it did not disapoint, the rooms are very comfortable with everything you need, although can be a little on the small side. Good location just behind the Cathedral, close to all shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions within Christchurch a good choice all round. You have a laptop you can get 3 hours complimentary internet access which although it is slow it does allow you to check mail etc, the only downside is that you have to use it all in one go as you cannot log out.
