Really helpful and attentive staff which makes a difference to this lovely hotel. We had a suite which was really lovely with a huge bed and great bathroom. Amazing location, walking distance from everything. Only criticism would be couldn't work out how to turn off the night light in the bathroom which meant difficulty sleeping.

This hotel is located a "stones throw" from the park and botanical garden and has off street free parking and is a short walk to the centre of the city.

Despite the sadness of seeing the some of the Christchurch CBD, this lovely hotel was a ray of hope for Christchurch's future. Lovely room, excellent early morning breakfast delivered to our room in time to catch the Tranzalpine train and probably the best meal I've ever had (in their restaurant) in over 25 trips to the South Island. That's saying... More

We stayed three nights at this lovely hotel! The staff went out of their way to meet every request. The room was clean and comfortable. They even offer complimentary selfservice laundry, but don't be in a hurry. The location is across the street from a beautiful park and only a couple of blocks from the trolley stop that will take...
