Spent two nights here in December. The Tuscana is well-located, only ten minutes' walk from the center, but on quite a busy road that remains noisy into the late evening. We were in a top-floor studio unit which was adequate but quite a bit smaller than in comparably-priced properties. The tiny but well-equipped kitchenette was behind louvered doors, as was the bathroom (shower only). When the weather was warm (by no means hot) it was necessary to open windows both in the front and rear of the unit, which meant having the two louvered doors to the bathroom open in order to create some airflow--and with the windows open, there was a lot of street noise and also noise from other guests who were entertaining in their rooms.
Mark was a gracious host, but all in all I don't understand the raves about this property. The room was the smallest studio we had in any motel around the country, and we stayed in plenty on our six week trip! The unit was very clean, but that is the norm in New Zealand. The noise aspect was a bit of a pain, as the weather was mild and we needed to keep the windows open to sleep.
A restaurant tip--Bodhi Tree, Burmese food, on 808 Colombo St--absolutely delicious. It's small and reservations are essential. We'd eat there every week if we lived in ChCh.
