Wifi is free. Room is not big. The reception was not very kind. It takes time to go to supermarket.

Good, clean spacious room, for three of us on business trip. Always clean and tidy, servicing of room done to a T. Little bit of outside noise (resturant/kitchen and street noise) gets in but livable.

We had the level 1 room which probably costs a little more. Big room with basic facilities, kettle, sink and fridge in room. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate packets provided. Tina is very friendly and helpful with directions and booking of a city tour of Christchurch and taxis. Wi-Fi is free and generous which was a bonus. There is a... More

Arrived to this hotel at the start of the recent "hundred year flood" so spent more time than anticipated in the room itself. The accommodation was quite dated but clean. Bed was OK. My husband got a knot on his leg when he slipped trying to get into the high-sided tub, so be aware. Water pressure was great. No kitchen... More

Drove into Christchurch after a long drive from Westport. Stopped in at the first motel I came to after driving through the city. The receptionist told me that there weren't too many motels in Christchurch any more, and most were fully booked due to community events. So I took what I could. Mistake no 1. Horrible hot room, no ventilation... More

The hotel has probably not been renovated since the 1960s or 1970s. It was very dated and there were cobwebs in several corners. The shower head was very low... I'm 5'10 (1m80) and I had to crouch down to use it. The bed was ok... a tad springy but it came with an electric blanket which was a nice touch.... More

Nice clean tidy rooms for your stay away from home, perhaps getting a little dated but value for money it's excellent handy to many pubs and restaurants with the added bonus of being attached to the Strawberry Fare Restaurant, desert not to be missed.
