Very basic and outdated which would be fine if the price matched. Slept comfortably but water stains on ceilings and bathroom needs repairs. Our previous nights accommodation was $50 less and was far superior.

Used this hotel because they accepted Bartercard. Rooms were shabby. For instance a hole in one of the doors had been plastered up and not even sanded and painted. Staff were generally a bit 'stand-offish". Not quite rude but bordering on it. Very expensive for what was on offer and the area it is in and it didn't even have... More

There was a few of us that had booked in for a nights stay, all disgusted.... The lady on the reception desk was rude when... More

We arrived at this 'hotel' at 10.30pm after driving from Queenstown. We were told the price was either $125 for a standard room or $145 for a 'better' room. What a joke. We were upgraded to the higher standard of room which upon entering was just dreadful. Everything about it was filthy, run down and we decided that we could... More

Booked this last room available in christchurch. Was going to sleep in car- should have Would have understood if it was 20 a night but with kids and no other choice bit the bullet. The place has potential but needs major improvements. Shower handle falling off, dirty carpet.

The room was not cleaned. Still dirt on the floor, dirty towels with hairs on it. The room itself looks a bit shabby,damaged walls, damaged carpet,untidy bathroom. The receptionist was looking at us like we came from another world. She talked to us in a way which I would say was just degoratory. After spending so much money I would... More
