I stayed here for 5 days while visiting friends. The hotel is a clean, quiet, and conveniently located. The breakfasts (I had the full buffet each day) were abundant and tasty. The staff were exceptional -- they are what earned my 5-star rating. They went out of their way to make us comfortable, give good suggestions, make sure we got... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel - I wish we could have stayed more than one night - but we were with a bus trip and had to move along. The meals were great, the bar and the service were fantastic! The rooms were clean, nice smelling, with in-room wifi (YAY), and comfy beds. Great location with a lovely... More

If you are looking for somewhere although slightly dated that's clean, has all facilities and very easy to use this is one to consider. Short drive into the town and only 2 mins off highway 1. The bar was roomy cleen and offered everything you need on your travels from a cold beer to a meal. Plenty of easy parking... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour of New Zealand. It is a very clean, tidy and well run establishment. The buffet meal was very good, room was huge, absolutely no complaints. Would have liked to stay a little longer!

This was a nice little hotel off the main road and the employees were all very nice (it is New Zealand of course - they all are!). The hotel was clean, the rooms were clean, though the room was tiny. There was barely enough space for one suitcase on the floor. That being said, it was very cute, even if... More

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
