Attended a conference here which was reasonably supported by hotel. Rooms comfortable, staff friendly, great place if you need to stay near airport and I think you can leave your car here while travelling, otherwise overpriced IMHO probably due to accommodation shortage in Christchurch during earthquake rebuild.

This hotel was more than moderate as listed on our tour information. It was very nice. We had a lovely dinner and breakfast buffet in this hotel. The room was very nice, large and very comfortable beds and pillows. If you have the chance to stay at this hotel, do not take a second thought. You will enjoy your stay.

Excellent! The hotel accommodated several travellers due to a cancelled flight. Free Airport shuttle and friendliness from staff made the delay seem like a minor blip on the radar!!! Meals were excellent and tasty.

We had a lovely stay. Staff were excellent, the room was lovely with a nice big bath and super comfortable beds. We made the most of the spa and sauna before having a really good chicken pizza in the restaurant. We were even given two complimentary drink vouchers to enjoy nice Wellington craft beer in the bar.

Our room did not have air conditioning. We had a fan which we used for air circulation. It was August, so temperature should have been cool but the room was a bit stuffy and also a bit damp
