“DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS HOTEL”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

Family holiday booked in Dec 2010 for April 2011, but could not stay due to the earthquake. Refused refund of any sort despite knowing several weeks in advance that the accommodation would not be available.

Do not deal with this company as better accommodation is available within the Christchurch area that do not have such restrictive cancellation policies.

2 Adults - 4 Nights

We arrived just 4 days after the Quake of Oct 10 and you could not ask for a more accomodating welcome. Immediatley upgraded to a one bedroom apartment, and although we were the only guests checked in, the service was first class.

Room was amazing, definitely worthy of 5 stars- spacious, clean, modern, comfortable, every thing needed for an enjoyable stay during city lockdown (due to the earthquake). Bathroom was large, tidy and held a fresh aoura. Located in the city centre you could not ask for a spot.

Only negative was the view - a brickwall is not too inspiring.

Thumbs up - stay again in a heart beat.

We booked 2 nights there but only manage to stay one due to the earthquake so we slept in the park. I don't know how stable the hotel is as we only got our luggage back 3 weeks ago and we had half of the celling in our bags.

Staff were freindly and did wonderful things to keep us calm with everything that happened.

The 1 bedroom apartment was well appointed and enabled us to cook some meals whilst enjoying other meals at nearby cafes and restaurants.Everthing we wanted was in the apartment and the location was within walking distance of transport,shops and sights or travel venues.
The staff was extremely pleasant,efficient and helpful and added to our enjoyment of the facilities.Fresh fruit was an added bonus.

The person at the front desk could not have been nicer. However, I would not stay again because of the no window factor. I thought it was overpriced for the room. The website shows a window, but when you get to the room it is a fake window, no a/c so no air flow. Considering the earthquake in September we had a terrible sleep because we felt we would never get out if there was a fire or earthquake There was no where to get out and we were at the back of the hotel. It was clean and central, but could have done better. Loved NZ though!
