Whilst the appearance of the Hotel from the outside may look average, inside is a completely different story.
As soon as I stepped outside the taxi, I was greated by the Porter and the checkin process only took only a matter of minutes. The Porter took by bags and walked with me to my Hotel room and explained air conditioning / tv etc...without appearing to wait for a tip
Following a call to reception regarding wifi (which a small amount of data is complimentary), I was then offerred a fresh juice which was then delivered within minutes.
The Hotel is within a short walking distance to the devastation of the earthquake city centre (a walk down Gloucester Street is an "eye opener").
The "free" George teddy bear is a nice touch to take home.
Whilst I did not "upgrade" the base room I booked, the view from the room, not surprisingly, was not great.
My prebooked taxi (as arranged by the Hotel) arrived on time in the very early hours of the morning for my next flight.
Whilst the Hotel is approx 15 minutes from the airport, this Hotel would be my first choice for my next stay in Christchurch.
