Lovely sized room with well maintained facilities; Room 108 - ground floor facing onto a side street - quiet, warm, and big enough to be able to spread out. Ate in the Sapporo Bar & Grill and the food was delicious. Staff all friendly and knowledgeable and especially helpful to someone who hadn't been in the city since the earthquakes.... More

Room was what one would expect from a 4 star hotel with plenty of room to spread out. Evening meal was taken in the hotel and was excellent both from quality and... More

Stayed here twice in rooms 217 and 224, and each was comfortable, clean, nicely decorated with 2 beds, soft chair, TV, AC/heating, mini fridge with no booze (only milk for the coffee/tea setup), an OK bath with lots of fluffy towels. Dinner and breakfast buffets were both good, and the bar had a good selection of wines. Friendly efficient staff... More

We stayed twice at this hotel in our visit to New Zealand. It is a clean, neat place, with a good restaurant and a very helpful staff. We also found it a convenient locattio, and we were able to grab a bus to go into the center of Christchurch. We were happy and pleased with our stay here.

OK so here is the bottom line. Room is adequate. Restaurant was closed due to a large group at the hotel so we had to walk across street to KFC. How can a hotel not accommodate guests at the hotel restaurant? Location not close to anything of interest. So, check out options before booking here.

The street outside the hotel has grteat take away places . The restaurant and bar in the hotel is also very good. The place if frequented by a lot of tourists.

Room was big enough, 2 double beds and I had the best nights sleep in this bed since the beginning of our trip. Bathroom was also a nice size and well appointed. No free wifi and 2 coin... More
