Close to transalpine/coastal railway station, The owner will pick you up and take you to the station. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Close enough to local amenities and a short bus ride into Christchurch. Perfect location. The owner helps make your stay amazing

I am not sure, we were only there for one night. They offer a laundry service but that doesn't mean they have driers for your to use. I am sure if you emailed them they will be able to answer your question
