    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

    Very welcoming and friendly host. The room was functional and clean and tidy. It was only a short walk to the Horncastle Arena (and AMI Stadium). Stayed in a 2 bedroom room which would be ideal for a small family.

    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
