    The front desk and staff were awesome. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and generously added in a breakfast for free. The location was perfect and convenient to downtown. The beds were lovely and it was very clean. I would def go back.

    It was perfect for our needs.

    Fantastic Hotel!! would highly recommend to any one travelling to Christchurch - excellent and friendly staff - would stay again.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Great location with comfortable and tidy rooms

    The walls are a little thin thus you hear people in the adjacent rooms. In addition, the doors on the rooms make a loud clank when they close thus you can be woken up at all hours.

  • Single

    Great place to stay very central really liked the motor sport memorabilia boats and cars

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Convenient location, Lovely staff and nice and clean atmosphere.

    The fan was super noisy in the kitchen, the decor was dated and not very comfortable and the meal at the restaurant was dreadfull. In thirty years of travelling the world i have never sent a meal back to the chef.
