The concierge and front desk staff were all very friendly, helpful and welcomming. Our room looked over the park and the location was fantastic for sight seeing and proximity to great restaurants and bars.

My husband and I stayed on the night of the 3rd and 5th Sept. Thankyou for enabling us to survive the earthquake although the door to the bathroom was very heavy so if we had made it to the door jamb it would have been hard to keep the door open in an earthquake. As we were stuck on Sunday night with the curfew we had to watch a poor choice of movies and the quality of the viewing screen itself was very bad

We were there during the earthquake and were most impressed with the response from the hotel staff.

The bathroom sink was blocked which was a nuisance when brushing teeth. The room has blackout linings on the curtains for a nice dark room to sleep in. I requested a quiet room away from the lifts and was accommodated.

PROS: Great place to stay when flying into Christchurch. Great location and very nice room. Good price too! CONS: Not a nice view: our window looked out to a parking garage. The restaurant's food was not good at all. Stay away from the special that never seems to change: the ribeye.

We were extremely impressed with the friendly helpful service we received. The staff were fantastic and their genuine smiles each day were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. We may receuve a thank you card from the hotel yet as we live out in the country and the mail takes longer to reach us.
