Great place to stay before our early morning flight. The staff was very helpful. Room minibar and fridge nicely stocked? There was a pool and hot tub. The 24/7 shuttle was very handy. Room was adequate.

We rarely award our top marks but this hotel hits the spot. Friendly staff a good room with good lighting so you could see at night so many hotels have such poor lighting if you leave before dawn it is difficult to check you have all your belongings. Two suitcase racks and a voucher for a free drink. What more...

As an ex Christchurch resident I have always enjoyed this hotel now when we travel overseas we stay the night before departure and enjoy their courtesy coach to the airport . A family run hotel,Rooms are great as is the service. The vegetation menus is limited but can always find enough. Very popular and always the same high standard.

Outstanding. Honestly we couldn't have come away more satisfied with our stay. We borrowed bikes and rode to the Antartica centre. A must do. Food was great as was the room. I'll be staying there again when I next need to stay in Christchurch for sure.

Fantastic place to wake up on Xmas Day! Especially since the kids were in their own room with adjoining door (and they are creating more like this in the latest building project apparently). Love the fact they'll post your postcards for free - well I guess it's not really free, is it?! Great indoor pool. Lovely indoor bar area and...

We called in at this hotel while hunting for a place to eat on a Friday night.It looked attractive with the garden of trees and water-wheel outside of what we soon discovered was the restaurant. Smiling reception staff assured us we were welcome to eat in the restaurant even though we were not staying there. We had a great waitress,...
