Thank you Gladys D for your review. Christchurch is a compact city and our location at Christchurch airport is only a short distance from town and many of the attractions of the wider Canterbury area. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back again next time you are in New Zealand....

This is my second visit with my husband and sister-in-law for a meal in their restaurant. The restaurant was very noisy and it was busy, difficult to have a quiet conversation. The waiter was very prompt, informative & had a good sense of humour which I think makes a meal better. Between us reports of the meal being good, I...

Attended a conference here which was reasonably supported by hotel. Rooms comfortable, staff friendly, great place if you need to stay near airport and I think you can leave your car here while travelling, otherwise overpriced IMHO probably due to accommodation shortage in Christchurch during earthquake rebuild.

This hotel was more than moderate as listed on our tour information. It was very nice. We had a lovely dinner and breakfast buffet in this hotel. The room was very nice, large and very comfortable beds and pillows. If you have the chance to stay at this hotel, do not take a second thought. You will enjoy your stay.

Excellent! The hotel accommodated several travellers due to a cancelled flight. Free Airport shuttle and friendliness from staff made the delay seem like a minor blip on the radar!!! Meals were excellent and tasty.

I shared a twin room with my daughter, which was dark but had a private outlook on to garden. Good sized room but the bathroom was too small for two people. Beds were comfortable, room service was good and the food and service in the dining room was excellent. I did not get good service in the bar, I was...

We had a lovely stay. Staff were excellent, the room was lovely with a nice big bath and super comfortable beds. We made the most of the spa and sauna before having a really good chicken pizza in the restaurant. We were even given two complimentary drink vouchers to enjoy nice Wellington craft beer in the bar.

Lovely room two queen bed and plenty of space. Even with cyclone cook passing in the night the room was extremely quiet, not even traffic noise. The bath salts were something I hadn't seen in a hotel before and they were very nice. If only the bath tub was updated to be more comfortable to relax in. Staff from pick...
