Nothing wrong with this, nothing particularly memorable either. The booking/check in service was pretty good. Minimal noise from the road, but some of the other guests were very noisy. Rooms are very clean.

We were visiting family for a few days in the Burwood area, and found this to be just superb for that purpose. Although you're on the main road, there's not a lot of road noise, and the rooms are modern, fresh, and well appointed. We're returning to Christchurch in March and will definitely be returning. Recommended.
