My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Governors Bay Hotel for 3 nights. It is a scenic 20 min drive out of Christchurch, but once you arrive it feels like you are hours out of town - peaceful, quiet and stunningly...More

Hi Mantaray, We did have a very temporary problem with our wifi extender but aside from that your review is factually wrong in some instances. On the weekend of your visit we did over 600 meals, they weren't served by robots I can assure you....More

Stayed here for one night in August 2017. We chose here as we were flying home out of Christchurch airport the next day and we didn't want to stay in the city. Beautiful place. Accommodation was good. Sharing the bathroom and toilet was not a...More
