Has the biggest Rooms for a Standard Hotel I have come across anywhere. The Hotel is nicely situated in the hotel strip of Canterbury which survived the 2010/11 Quakes. It's old Canterbury Architecture remains. The restaurants serves outstanding meals and the service is great along with the bar. It encapsulates New Zealand of Old and it's English Kentish style and... More

For $156 a night I got a room that looked and smelt like it would of done in 1970! Very old, uncomfortable couch and bed! Crappy shower! Just not worth that price! For $156 I would expect and demand better. I would definitely not come back if I had too. Bright side, people and service seemed good!

I stayed here for one night at the end of a South Island tour, arriving in the evening and leaving at 6am the next morning, so my experience was limited. Staff were friendly and efficient, and I was glad of someone to manoeuvre my unwieldy bag round the Tudor alleyways and staircases! My room was huge and the bed was... More

The experience was wonderful because of the amazing architecture of the place. The morning buffet was good, bacon was really good. The rooms were cozy and they location was perfect as we did a round of 60% of the city. Great city, happy people and a good hotel.

Just stayed for two nights and am now covered in big red itchy bites. Chemist said bed bugs :( Rooms were clean although very tired and outdated. Not enough blankets or heating in rooms, I froze. Staff were excellent.

We finished a 2 week trip at the Heartland Cotswold in Christchuch. It is a nice property and the room we received was very spacious and an great place to sort out the end of a whirlwind tour. The carpets in the room are clean, but tired and I can deal with that. As well as the simple fixtures and... More

On arrival I was somewhat taken aback by the pseudo Tudor façade which seemed rather quirky. The apartment was spacious, clean and adequately furnished and nearby were restaurants (including two in the motel complex) and a small shopping mall. The staff (apart from one) were friendly and helpful. Two negative comments. As I have found in many hotels and motels... More

This is a lovely looking hotel in a very good location just outside the centre of the city, with restaurants within walking distance in the Merivale area. The staff were very friendly and helpful and helped us to check in and print off our boarding passes for the next days flight home. The room was large with cooking facilities and... More

We stayed here as the first stop on a coach tour of the South Island. The Hotel is a mock Tudor motel with all the facilities expected. Our first meal was excellent, however we didn't enjoy the evening meal on our return before heading to the North Island, but we were probably lambed out by that time

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the start of a NZ tour and though the look of the place is very pleasing in its Tudor style, it is a little tired and could do with some air con and a few pictures on the walls. We did not find the beds too comfy and they dipped from... More
