Guest reviews

  • Single

    the room was very nicely decorated and the staff very pleasant - they were very welcoming

    it was difficult to find but that was more due to the earthquake problems than anything else. There were not any very close by shops.

  • Single

    Nice staffs - Patient to travellers, despites shortage of living materials after earthquicks.

  • Family with children

    location, location, location, extremely clean rooms, hospitality from the front desk could not have been better--we arrived just in time for the memorial service for the quake victims and henrietta could not have been more helpful, from advise about what was closed, where to eat-the best thai food ever within walking distance, to shopping. it is an amazing hotel to enjoy.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the location of the motel.

    The smell of the towels in the room. It has bad bo smell.

  • Older travelers

    Just a great package, pleasant room and excellent staff and welcome. Quite close to the extremely recommendable Octagon Live for dinner and the superb Anrarctic photos at Canterbury Museum.

  • Family with children

    we booked 2 bedroom apartment. the room is clean and nice. everything is ready and good for family. the location is not too far from downtown.

  • Older travelers

    Terrific alround value for the fee so close to the city

  • Couple

    Location- walking distance to the city centre- only 10 mins

  • Older travelers

    the location is definitely a winner. the unit was great, clean and comfortable.the service was good, nice people.

    a minor remark would be: the basin in the bath room was very small.

  • Older travelers

    Very convenient situation near city centre. Clean and comfortable accommodation, friendly and helpful staff.Convenient, safe, free parking

  • Family with children

    Excellent package of modern facilities, everyday room service, very helpful staff and a great location (5 min walk to the centre of Christchurch).

  • Family with children

    courtesy of the hosts was good in providing free umbrellas and suggesting we unload the car close to cover during a heavy rain shower.

  • Couple

    The staff at the hotel were very helpful in providing directions to places within Christchurch and on routes around South Island. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable. We rebooked for our return trip to Christchurch.

  • Couple

    Hotel staff very kind. Very nice room and well equipped. Great location, close to the center, robust and small (good for not feeling earthquakes!).

  • Older travelers

    One night stay. Enjoyable, friendly, quiet yet centrally located.
