Had fish and chips foe lunsh here with our friends from England. The fish had beautiful light beer batter and the chips were crisp and delicious. We all enjoyed them very much sitting outside. Staff were pleasant and service was prompt.

Great location, easy parking this roomy, clean and tidy queen bed accommodation with great views was only marred by the fact that there was no air conditioning of fans, and it was hot weather and also no water in the fridge. The location is perfect right by the wharf ( try the grilled fish and chips on the end of...

We had a casual lunch here whilst visiting the area from overseas, great location and most of what we ordered to eat was reasonable. Unfortunately one of our meals (grilled chicken burger served in a baguette) was inedible because the baguette was hard (not just stale - but solid). I asked, politely, to tell the chief/cook. What sort of response...

Akaroa is the last town at the tip of the land east of Christchurch. The ride over the rolling hills is breathtaking!, take the high road for views then relax at L'hotel for drinks and food. The atmosphere was great and the pizza was just as good.

I'm sure this restaurant and hotel are charming when the cruise ships aren't in (how often is that?). But this is the first one right across ftom the dock so it gets quite a crowd. We couldn't sit outside but had a table right at the entrance so it was fine. The food was excellent. I was dying for mussels...

I have been here before and enjoyed our lunch. However this time there was a cruise in and the service was very average! We were not offered any water with our lunch, then when I went to pay the receptionist did not even relay our order for me to check prior to paying! Food was ok but wouldn't rave over...

Another place we've visited twice in the past 2 months. We have only had meals in the restaurant but you can stay also in apartments. There is a reasonable menu to choose from, also not too expensive. You can sit out in the courtyard - great on a sunny day or there is an enclosed balcony that still gives good...

We had two nights here, and even the rain could not spoil our holiday, for L'Hotel and its staff were great....thoroughly enjoyed. The rooms are neat, and generously comfortable. The view from number 4 , our room, is good, the balcony very good, and the pizzas most tasty. Kitchen has enough to make salads, breakfast and drink a good Canterbury...

Spent two nights at this hotel and the location is great. We were situated on the side street, but still had a view of the sea which we really enjoyed. Very close to all the shops and restaurants. A pleasant place to stay.

We spent two nights here over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in room 2 and it was nice to see the recent renovations and upgrade. The room was much larger than we expected and we had a lovely big balcony overlooking the harbour, which we took full advantage of to enjoy afternoon nibbles and drinks in the...
