Prime location”

The place is amazing! All the attractions around christchurch were around walking distance! Even the Christchurch city tram stops very nearby the area. Its not in the city centre so it wasnt very noisy. The room was spacious and comfortable with pillow menu. The gym has sufficient basic equipment that opens 24hours. The breakfast buffet is quite a spread with vegetarian options. It was our honeymoon trip (we indicated in the booking) and they prepared a little gift and card for us (very thoughtful!). Would recommend this place if I were to visit again.

Really good room and great location”

We really loved that the room had a great view of Christchurch and was VERY well-maintained, modern, and spacious. 24 hour gym was also awesome. The staff at the bar is top-notch as well, especially Andy who made excellent wine suggestions and even pointed us to vineyards in south island. Location is also really great - next to the beautiful Oxford Terrace where you can get amazing coffee and food, and a short walk from downtown.
