I was not sure what to expect based on previous posts. I was impressed by the comfort, kitchenette facilities, coffee pot and espresso machine, roomy bathroom, table and chairs and a sofa. Modern decor. Handy to airport and and easy straight line drive into the city. Lots of eateries closer into city...so you need to drive.

Spent two nights in possibly the most uncomfortable bed I've (tried) to sleep in. The room was a good size, small kitchen which was nice (able to self cater) although on inspection the remains of previous guests cooking were lying on the oven floor. Salt and pepper lay on the shelf around the shakers so it felt like the kitchen... More

Being booked by the travel agent, I wasn't sure what to expect here; I haven't stayed at or even seen a Best Western for ages. It sounds like this one is independently owned and operated, not that that has anything to do with the experience, which was very pleasant. The reception was very friendly and hassle-free.

The bed linen was so dirty, there were 3 yellow spots on the bed linen and very smelly. Feels like they didn't change the bed linen from the previous customers before we arrived. After sleeping one night, I feel very itch on my skin. Very bad experience.

Great location, close to airport, uni, Riccarton Mall & Church Corner. But bed linen wasn't quite clean, a few yellow spots that looked like urine stain; got itchy skin after one night sleep.
