We chose this hotel because we had difficulty finding reasonably priced accommodation in Christchurch. So glad we did. Can't believe the quality for the price paid. Great service. Nice swimming pool for a dip at the end of a hot day. Manager even found floats etc. for us to play with! Lovely gardens and pond for a little stroll. Free... More

I chose this hotel as it was off the main road so I expected traffic noise would be reduced, Was a little disconcerted to arrive and find how huge the complex was, with conference facilities, bar and a car park full of cars. I was expecting therefore a noisy night but was pleasantly surprised to hear no traffic noise or... More

This was the first hotel we stayed when we arrived at New Zealand. It is about an hour drive from Christchurch. Check in was fast and soon we were in our room which is not so near to the lobby. This hotel has only one-storey building. It looks more like a motel. The room is big and spacious. Most important... More

This hotel was a little weird looking, possibly former retirement home, but it was clean and pretty nice. It was located next to the race course, so great place to stay if you are there for the races. It was about a 10 minute drive from the town centre and an hour from the Christchurch airport. The hotel is great... More

We stayed here one night. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, even helping us find a doctor available late on a Friday evening, calling for us and giving directions. Another highlight was the five Mallard duck hens who came to our door seeking handouts. They would eat from your hand. There is a beautiful garden that smells wonderful. Also... More

This is simply charming location... the gardens are exceptionally picturesque and a lovely way to wind down wandering through them.This is an older motel that has been impeccably kept. The staff were so friendly, even offering us bottles of water as we left. Free WIFI. The rooms could do with an upgrade, but I slept well here...it might simply be... More

Hotel Ash (or Flash Ash as it seems to be known locally) really doesn't seem to know what it is; it has a bottle store (offlicense), it has a TAB public bar, it has a conference centre and it has a hotel which looks like one of those motels from the Xfiles... It does however have some of the best... More

The room itself was nice and clean with comfy beds, which made up for the rather grim hallways. Liked the bathroom which was very nice, clean and modern, good shower. Staff and cleaning staff were all friendly and cheerful. This was the only hotel we stayed in on our trip and it did feel a bit charmless but it was... More
