Located close to the city. Loved the free wifi! Requested a late checkout which wasn't passed on to the house keeping team. Place was full which meant the carpark was full and we had to park outside the conference room, might pay to allocate/number the carparks per unit. Loved the big king sized bed, room was clean and tidy. We... More

We stayed in an upstairs downstairs layout and this was plenty for the 3 of us. The hotel is well located and we could not hear street noise. It would be nice if there was a bathroom upstairs as well as downstairs and our downstairs queen sized bed unfortunately sagged in the middle. Overall we would highly recommend this as... More

It is really memorable & excellent experience to stay here. The host is a couple which is very nice. They were coming from China and running this hotel in Christchurch. We shared a lot views about China, New Zealand, onshore/offshore life, different cultures, etc. They introduced a lot things about New Zealand and this really helps us to tuning my... More

Great place on the northside of Christchurch city centre, cosy little cottages retro modern inside design and décor close proximity to shops and petrol. Staff were very friendly, room had sky TV, kitchette facilities and of course WiFi which was actually quite fast from other places I've stayed in.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment twice, two nights at the start of our South Island tour, and in the same unit for one night three weeks later. The unit we stayed in was spacious, ideal for families of 4-5 people. Loved that we could park our car just outside the unit. Would like to suggest for the management... More

Beds cheap and uncomfortable. No doors for either bedroom. Plus is close to some nice eating places. Guess if u want to go to casino pretty close. Good fridge space. Considering no doors to bedrooms bathroom inadequate and not very private.
