The rooms are comfortable and of good size, The kitchen area was fantastic and very large, the reading room was normaly empty and peacfull. The only down side to it was some of the other people staying there.... More

Stonehurst is the the heart of Christchurch and walking distance from the city centre and all local sightseeing spots. A simple B&B with friendly staff and facilities. Stonehurst was great value for money and had rooms with all the facilities and great parking area at an extremely low cost. Staff at the reception was very helpful as well. Overall a... More

We were a group of 10 so had a dorm room to ourselves. This suited us fine. Beds of reasonable comfort and we could use facilities of the complex when we liked. Plenty of room for all of the guests even at the height of the holiday period. Kitchen and shower facilities were average but clean. Bedroom and linen all... More

Great value for money! really close walking to city but again this is not too noisy so we loved that. staff were helpful and the manager we met was very good too. i would reccommend this, the showers were good and strong. i think it has many room options so would be good for family friends or single travellers, but...

Slightly tatty reception area belies very affordable and comfortable accommodation less than 5 minutes from centre of Christchurch. We booked a Superior Studio unit which was very spacious with a small kitchenette.

A nice hostel, 10 mins walking from city center. Just what you expect from a backpackers hostel, not too good, not too bad. It is good money for value.

...spent 3 nights here on a nostalgia trip to NZ. The management epitomized the positive, laid-back attitude that NZ is famous for. Each of my 3 stop-ins during August were made without reservation, and each time, the friendly, courteous staff found me a room for a reasonable price. Clean, quiet - slept like a log.

WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE!! We stayed in a 3-bedroom tourist flat for 7 weeks (our second such long-term stay here) with our 18 month old. The accommodation was immaculate, facilities excellent and cleanliness was spot on. It is all the little extras that the staff do here like fit a gate at the back of the yard at our request... More

Comfy and nice place, just that there's a smell in the room that sort of came with old accomodation. The dryer wasn't working perfectly fine in our room, we had washed our clothes the night before departure and the clothes came out semi-dry. Had to iron our clothes to dry them!

This was a very nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. It is very close to the city - about 10 minutes walk. The hostel was clean and well maintained throughout. The only bad part was the 6 bed dorm i stayed in was very cramped with not much room to put your backpack without it being in someones way.... More
