Great staff, comfortable room. ”

Arrived early after a long international flight from Canada. Was able to check in early thanks to a wonderful front desk staff member. Room was comfortable. Two single beds, but would have been better suited to have two double beds. Small kitchenette was nice, but was didn’t use it. Location was great being within a ten minute walk of downtown core. Would recommend.

Fab location!”

Walking distance to CBD. No sound from the busy roads at night. Warm rooms. The flooring in the bathroom had lifted. The fan fell apart in my hands. The dish rack was out of reach on top of the cupboard. The location is what we enjoyed. We would stay again even though there were a few things that could be upgraded. Thanks.

Very quiet rooms, helpful staff and very clean Although radiator wasn't working a heater was supplied, which kept us toasty on first very cold night of our stay. Not so happy with power box dangling under TV or the rather grotty washing up brush supplied, which I threw in the rubbish. Manager/staff supplied us with extra blankets, plus extra milk & mug on the first day. Very handy to city, transport, etc.

Great location that's only a 10 minute walk away from the city centre. Easy accessibility to eateries and groceries. It happened that the ceiling started leaking water on the 2nd day of my stay. The staff acted quickly to switch me to another room and I am pleased with their quick reaction. The room was cosy and spacious. I would stay here again.

The cleanliness could have been a bit better. There was a crushed up biscuit behind the bedside table which did not come from us. Also the shower caddy was so rusty they would be better off not having it there. Other than that it was good value for money. Very close to centre of chch and lovely comfy bed.

We entered the room and it was obvious that it smelt damp or like mould. The room didnt really look like the photos and was in desperate need of some TLC. We ended up leaving after a couple of hours and were unable to get a refund because we had booked a non refundable room on Agoda. Word to the wise just book directly with the hotel.

I'd stayed in a few places already between Christchurch and dunedin and this was the first place that looked like it's advertised pictures. It was clean fresh and kept well. The other places were tired and worn out and needed decorating. So this was just lovely to spend my last couple of days in Christchurch in.
