We recently stayed three nights in a two room suite with our boys aged 10 & 12. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The buffet breakfast was delicious and excellent value. The hostess Suzanne was great. We would stay here again just for the breakfasts!

I stayed at the Heartland Hotel Cotswald recently on a business trip. My room, 877 was at the far end of the complex and in a characterless concrete block building among the other tudor themed buildings. The entrance to the room was overhung by a balcony, making it dark, and a plant or something would have made it look a... More

We stayed in a huge 2 bedroom unit, which was very warm, comfortable and clean. Each bedroom had a TV and the beds were very comfortable. The staff were friendly, hotel position is quite central to a lot of places of interest and having free wifi and all the Sky channels was great! The only downsides were the lack of... More

Stayed 1 night on business in August. The hotel's architecture is akin to a period British stately house (well, a kiwi version). It's all pleasant enough, rooms are quite big and the decor is ok. It just doesn't feel that special. It's alright. The internet (a critically important facility for me) was properly temperamental - the internet was in and... More

During a business trip in Christchurch I ended up in some sort of reconstitution of Tudor village with pitched roofs, half-timbering brickwork, pillared porches, dormer windows and so on. This is a motel, more suitable for families on the go, not really for business. The breakfast is served at the restaurant in the complex. The rooms are actually one room... More

I think the mock-Tudor theme might appeal to a SCA conference visiting, but I thought it was out of place. The rooms are very spacious, although mine had a musty smell. The heating was great, but only a thin blanket was supplied with the bed. I appreciated having decaf coffee in the room even if only instant. Shower base is... More

I stayed here for business in May. The rooms are large and good heating but the beds are the best! Restaurant on site and good customer service. Very expensive conference facilities though so maybe have to look elsewhere. $500 per day is getting up there a bit for a daily room hire. The place could do with another washing machine... More

We stayed one night. The local remembered an old villa, referencing King Arthur. The apartment was clean, large and quiet, two separate rooms and one bathroom. The heaters made a good job, because the temperature was around zero degree. Good sheets and towels, good toiletry. Staff efficient. The only thing we missed was a microwave to heat a cup of...

I booked into the 'motel' part of this hotel because of its proximity to a city hospital. I read the reviews and not all were positive. When I looked around my unit I was not very happy with its cleanliness. I promptly rang reception and told them and immediately they came around looked at my concerns and helped me move... More
