First impression was 'on no, it's the old Forsyth Barr Building' that was damaged during the Christchurch earthquake, so that wasn't a great start. The reception staff were great and the ground floor looked really nicely setup. The room was also nicely decorated. The disappointment came from the small size of the room and the level of noise from the adjacent rooms / corridor. For a relatively recently opened hotel, the sound proofing should be better. Breakfast buffet was ok, but didn't offer value for money. Was very clean throughout hotel.

I did not have high expectations when I booked the Crowne Plaza but I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was great as is Christchurch itself. We arrived late in the morning having hired a car at the airport. The hotel has uncovered parking on the side which had plenty of spaces when we arrived. We were able to check in early and drop our things in the room before heading out to explore Christchurch. The hotel has an excellent location. On a map, it may seem that it is outside the centre but it is within a 5 minute walk to all that Christchurch has to offer. The city itself is very walkable with lots of open spaces and parks to enjoy. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. Check in was swift as was check out. Our Superior room was on one of the higher floors with fantastic views over Christchurch. The hotel is fairly new and feels well maintained. It is certainly one of the modern Crowne Plazas. Our room was spacious and had a comfortable bed as well as complimentary T2 teas and coffee. The bathroom was modern with a shower cubicle and locally sourced New Zealand amenities. The bathroom cubicle is separated by glass from the room but can be blocked off for privacy. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the Market Place. Both were enjoyable. Breakfast was buffet with plenty of choices across both hot and cold items. I loved the Crowne Plaza and look forward to returning.

We were booked to stay here the day before our planned departure from Christchurch Airport and then Covid-19 came along. Despite our reservation being made via IHG membership on a non-refundable basis the hotel to their credit refunded us promptly with the cost without fuss. It's easy to leave negative comments however it's also good to praise where good practice has been experienced and this was one of these occasions.

I have stayed here regularly for work but came down for a long weekend and booked two rooms with friends. Check in was excellent and with my IHG status received upgrades even though both were booked with points. Quality of the room fit out is also great and the view from the top floor is amazing!

When I booked 2 rooms on line, I didn’t mention is for 2 families. But the hotel staff prepared we live next to each other. Very warm thoughts. Very clean and good services. Very enjoyable. Will stay again.
