Handy location in the city

The staff at reception were friendly and helpful. It is only a short walk to the centre of Christchurch which is steadily being rebuilt. The hotel organised the airport shuttle which was reasonably priced.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Visit the Christchurch museum located at the gates to the Botanic Garden. The Antarctic display section is fascinating. We could have spent a whole day in the museum which as an added bonus is free entry.

Weekend Away

This Hotel is in a nice location even though it has been hit hard by earthquakes , great place to unwind , rustic wee eating places along the street , container mall so a bit of kiwi creativity all around. Hotel it self was great, staff very friendly an accommodating. One thing I did notice though was on the 9th floor there were a few things left out by the lifts that took along time for cleaning staff / staff to pick up an take away . Overall great stay.

A very nice hotel in down town Christchurch

Everything is fine in this hotel. It would be even better if some TV channels like CNN, NHK, etc could be provided in the room.

Perfect Location!

We only stayed the one night but were right in the centre of town with everything within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again. Check in was later than expected (we weren't able to go up to our room until 3:30pm) but other than that everything was great!

Clean, comfortable and basic

Renovated rooms were nice. Beds small but comfortable. Continental breakfast as to expected - basic but nice. Chefs made lovely ad-hoc veggie Asian meal on request. Bar manager very surly with inflated ego but other staff were friendly and attentive.

We stayed for one night on arrival

We stayed for one night on arrival in Christchurch at the beginning of our holiday and were extremely pleased with every aspect of the hotel and service we received. Well located in easy walk of the city centre. The service on reception was faultless, nothing being too much trouble. The room was modern, comfortable and spottlessly clean and most importantly quiet, resulting a goood night's sleep. Overall exceptional value for money compared to other more expensive hotels we have used on previous visits.

Pretty good hotel...fairly new

Pretty good hotel...fairly new and good service. Parking is expensive and valet only. The only part I didnt like was valet parking concept...sometimes had to wait for ages in order to get my car. Otherwise a good hotel, good location and good rooms. Highly recommended.
