Thanks for your positive review and taking the time to write it. Given the circumstances it was remarkable that you made it to Christchurch at all and were able to take the train as planned. A pleasure to have you to stay.

Modern, clean, lovely room, great bed, fantastic shower, close to the city. We had a nice walk to the city through lovely parks. Its an ideal location and good rate. The host (Phyllis) was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
