We stayed for one night before moving onto Sydney the following day and found this place to be everything we needed.
It is a 15 min walk into the centre of christchurch, a 2 min run to the large communal park (Hagley i think it is called) within 2 minutes of the Carlton Steak house which incidently is also worth a visit.
The owners were really friendly letting us check in early and providing us with unlimited internet vouchers and advice for a few sights on that day.
The rooms were clean and the bed comfy, the bathroom not the biggest but more than acceptable.
There is also a small pool if you are staying in the summer months, no noise at all in our room and plentiful free parking.
A good place to stay if visiting Christchurch for a few days.More
