Myself, partner and 2 friends stayed here for 3 days over NYE (before quake). Thoroughly enjoyed the autonomy of having our own facilities, as opposed to tea and coffee making! Rooms were spacious, comfortable and quite well appointed. Staff were very helpful and the location itself is pretty good. We had a jacuzzi tub in the room which it seemed...

Family holiday booked in Dec 2010 for April 2011, but could not stay due to the earthquake. Refused refund of any sort despite knowing several weeks in advance that the accommodation would not be available. Do not deal with this company as better accommodation is available within the Christchurch area that do not have such restrictive cancellation policies.

2 Adults - 4 Nights We arrived just 4 days after the Quake of Oct 10 and you could not ask for a more accomodating welcome. Immediatley upgraded to a one bedroom apartment, and although we were the only guests checked in, the service was first class. Room was amazing, definitely worthy of 5 stars- spacious, clean, modern, comfortable, every...

We booked 2 nights there but only manage to stay one due to the earthquake so we slept in the park. I don't know how stable the hotel is as we only got our luggage back 3 weeks ago and we had half of the celling in our bags. Staff were freindly and did wonderful things to keep us calm...

The person at the front desk could not have been nicer. However, I would not stay again because of the no window factor. I thought it was overpriced for the room. The website shows a window, but when you get to the room it is a fake window, no a/c so no air flow. Considering the earthquake in September we...

Stayed a few days before the earthquake so although their website says they haven't been damaged this review is based on it's pre-earthquake condition only and it's central location (close to both the cathedral and grand chancellor hotel) means that a lot of the buildings nearby will be badly damaged. The hotel was clean and modern and the staff were...

This is quite nice accommodation but fell short of the five stars it apparently has been awarded. First off we belatedly discovered that the rate we had been quoted was excusive of tax. Not sure whose mistake that was by the time we realised it but these days rates are usually quoted GST included. When we got there we were...

I much prefer this type of...
