I have stayed here before and the property is fantastic as well as the staff. Close to city center, clean, tidy and peaceful. The rooms are a nice size and great off street parking. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful

We only stayed one night, but it was great. The staff is wonderful and efficient. The location is very quiet, but it may have something to do with the fact that Christchurch isn't fully recovered from the earthquake. There's plenty of parking and our room was clean and nicely appointed with a modern taste. Reasonable rates, by American standards.

We booked the 2bed 1bath apartment. Generally ok. Kitchenette was sufficient for coffee/tea and warming up food with microwave. Can't do much more like cook a simple pasta dish for the kids as the kitchenette was not equipped. There is also no dining table. Location wise, fairly central. Transition Cathedral is nearby, and it is an easy walk to the centre.

Thanks for the feedback regarding your stay. The 2 bedrooms apartments are well suited for families especially with all that extra room. You are right, it would be difficult to cook a meal, the kitchenette is there for basic heating and eating purposes only. Thanks for the suggestion on the dining table, we will keep it in mind for future improvements.
Regards,
Rob.

Excellent location to explore the new Christchurch. Rooms were very clean & comfortable. During our stay we found the staff very friendly & helpful. The hotel is modern, with a bar & restaurant attached. Thanks for having us. We'll be back!

We stayed here two nights, one at the beginning and one at the end of our honeymoon. The rooms we had were clean and comfortable although the last night we were in the wheelchair friendly room which was fine but it was a little odd for us! The only issue we had was the light in the bathroom that was motion-sensored kept turning off during the shower, we found that quite hilarious but it might make it a little difficult for someone in a wheelchair having a shower.

Thank you to the polite staff who were professional and helpful, and thank you for a great stay!

Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed both stops on your Honeymoon! A small number of our lead in rooms are accessible rooms. While it can be a bit strange at first, I have to say taking a seat for a nice hot shower in the morning does have its positives...
Thanks again,
Rob.
