    "Great view and very relaxed quiet"
    Our 2 bedroom residence was lovely staff overall very good Breakfast staff looked overworked and kept forgetting to bring tea when requested but were polite The wakatipu grill for dinner was no experienced as the wait staff when we arrived were disinterested and not accommodating even though there were 1/3 of tables empty he could not seat us for 45 minutes! He showed us to a bar table with a drinks menu already on the table and after 15 mins we walked out as no one bothered to check on us to order drinks The parking; there is great self parking underground that gets you to hotel directly however one evening when it was very very wet, dark and late we got back to no availability in the car park at all - we went to reception for assistance and politely but without empathy were offered baker parking at $15 or we needed to go back up the hill (quite steep and difficult to walk) in the rain to park outside - surely given the hour and weather we could've left the car in the large driveway that was empty at the time or offered to leave there unpack and then move the car!! No such common sense advise was offered Apart from these 2 incidents it was a lovely place to stay and my guess is some staff need a refresher course on guest vs customer

    "room design "
    Room design needs to be reversed. Bed to inside wall, sitting area to windows. Funny smell in room- not dirty smell but strange , hard on allergies. Great staff!

    "Best breakfast in NZ?"
    Nice position, on the lake side. Room smelt of cigarette smoke on arrival but this dissipated. Room was at ground level but patio door catch was not safe. Room very comfy. Breakfast was great, big selection. Reception staff very helpful. I had to print a boarding card and they did it all for me.

    "Very modern hotel in the Christchurch City Center"
    It survived the terrible earthquake of 2011 so it is safe. Comfortable, stylish, clean and efficient with great staff, esp. Gwen who helped me retrieve my backpack which I had forgotten on the Super Shuttle. Located so close to a cute, small shopping district filled with restaurants and shops plus the tram station is behind the hotel if you want to see the city, hop on, hop off method. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in the center of the city...there are still much construction going on as well as cordoned off areas where some buildings are still unsafe. After our South Island tour we will be returning to the Rendesvouz.

    "Funky Place"
    We really enjoyed our brief stay, and wished we had known to book here on a previous stay. The hotel is funky & light hearted...cute fun furniture, and little nooks in the hallways for rest & reading! Friendly reception staff with supportive suggestions for dining in the city. We were greeted wih the offer of Nespresso & fresh fruit. We had hoped that this was a new chain we could look out for...but it appears to be a one-of,...maybe in time?

    We only stayed overnight in preparation for an early morning pick up for an Abel Tasman trip. The unit was very clean and the complex nicely located to the Nelson city centre.

    "Nice hotel close in an excellent location. "
    Staff helpful. I left some toiletries behind and went back for them a couple of days later. They were neatly packaged up with the date of stay and room number. I was really pleased to get them back and impressed by the efficiency of housekeeping.
