Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch is set to re-open on May 1, 2013.

The 171-room property – located in the Pacific Tower building on Gloucester Street, opposite recently refurbished New Regent Street – has been closed to the public since the February 2011 earthquake but with repairs on the building now complete it is ready once more to open its door to visitors.

“We are delighted to be able to welcome guests back,” said Rendezvous Hospitality Group CEO, Eric Teng.

“Christchurch is on track to be one of the best small cities in the world and we are pleased to be part of that.

“All of our hotels work harder to provide superior value to each guest and we are excited to be able to open the doors of Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch,” he said.

Rendezvous Hotel Christchurch General Manager Brad Watts said staff are excited about the hotel’s re-opening and looking forward to welcoming guests through the doors again.

“The hotel is looking fantastic and we’re thrilled to be in a position to re-open and again provide high quality accommodation within the city centre for people visiting either for business or for leisure,” he said.

The hotel is now taking bookings from May 1, 2013 and for a limited time it is offering guests 10% off the best available rate every day of the week as well as free internet connectivity and local telephone calls and discounted charges for other hotel services.
