We were met by an extremly helpful host when we arrived shortly before midnight. The room was clean and super comfortable. Our host the following morning was extremely helpful in getting our rental car organised for us. A great start to our NZ holiday. For future travellers, theycan colle t you fro the airportif previously arranged.

Great place to stay. The studio rooms are great value for money. I try to stay here every time when it is not fully booked which is mostly always! Room is always well presented and neat and tidy. Room service was efficient and although there is a "surcharge" on every item in the room service menu, the food was good... More

I stayed here for one night after arriving on a late flight and was blown away by how good this place was. Highly recommended! It is close to the airport, but further than convenient walking distance with luggage so they run a shuttle to the airport that is on demand, quick and easy. I stayed in a premium studio that...

Stayed just one night before a flight out of Christchurch. This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in in NZ. Super rooms, modern, spotlessly clean, stylish, and comfortable. The staff were all very professional and very friendly. Everything about my visit went like clockwork, I can whole heartedly recommend this hotel, esp if you are arriving or departing... More

Amazing! Slept like a log and the rooms are super luxurious. I could live there! Everyone was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble, everyone went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. Great value for money and I will certainly stay again. Thank you so much.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay in this lovely boutique hotel. The customer service is superb! Our flight arrived at 1 am in the morning and we dial the free shuttle pick-up from the airport accommodation board, in no more than 10 minutes the shuttle bus driver came with a warmest NZ smile!
