Friendly service and efficient but dated rooms and food only average. Plus point is city is short walk across park and through botanical gardens. It was fine for one night but I expect a bit more for the price paid.

We spent 2 nights here in November of 2014. The room was just okay--an old-style motel room. The AC didn't work, the room smelled like smoke when we arrived (even though it was non-smoking), and the very dated bathroom had a commode that was quite difficult to flush. The positives of the stay were the location, the parking, and staff.... More

This is a wierd looking place! I found the entrance hall, airport-style reception and long corridors a bit off-putting, but that's just personal taste and I'm sure they wouldn't bother many people. Our room was a bit small and tired but adequate for the one night we were staying. We grabbed a quick lunch in the restaurant which was OK.... More

Nice position and good parking. Impressive building and gardens. Generally helpful staff. Difficult to comment on price as at current £1 NZ Dollar exchange rates the whole of NZ seems expensive! Room was adequate. Bathroom suite was very dated, fridge was noisy so had to be unplugged at night, and the first time I have watched a CRT television for... More

We already stayed here 3 years ago and found the place in drastic need of repairs after the earthquake. So we were pleasantly surprised by the changes; new reception; stairways and outdoor pool area. They advised they would be starting on the bedrooms next which is good news as they need re-doing. Hope they change the fridges soon as we... More

We spent two nights here. The staff were very helpful, the room was lovely and clean and the room service was quick and well priced. It is in a good position, just a walk across the park into CC. Also, close to Riccarton Mall. Thank you

The location, entrance ,the lobby ,the powder rooms, the bar ,the rose gardens ...all Romantic n exceptional but the moment u enter your room it all shatters. The rooms need renovation very badly... small... n not well kept furniture..ok bathrooms ...a big let down to the whole property i must say.Wish u had better rooms.

Exceptional staff who are always helpful and obliging. Room overlooked garden and Swimming pool Room size was adequate with usual facilities. Quality meals in the restuarant Ideal location for the city, it's only a walk across the patk. Definately worth considering this hotel if the price suits your budget.

Stayed for 2 nights in Dec 14, we had high expectations for this property as Christchurch was our point of departure following our 12 day tour of N.Z and sadly we were let down. We appreciate there has been restoration work to this establishment, but the wing we were located is tired to say the least. Check-in was easy but... More

And by that I mean this hotel has been used as an earthquake coordination centre and has withstood said natural disturbances...one of which happened whilst we stayed there. Rock(ish) solid. Whilst I would agree with some of the reviews here that some elements of the place may be somewhat worn, I have to say to the precious types out there:... More
