By the time I arrived in town and at the hotel, all coffee shops in the area were closed. My options were a casino that may or may not have had a restaurant, and that I may or may not be dressed appropriately for, the hotel bar which was loud and did not make me feel comfortable to go into alone and the gas station across the street. I opted for the gas station. Even during the day, it didn't seem like there was really much around.
My room was at the back. The sidewalk was uneven, the lighting poor, and my door opened into the parking that was used by some of the bar guests. It was not noisy, but I certainly didn't feel entirely safe. I was happy that I would just be there the one night. If I had been there longer I actually think I would have found a different hotel for the next time. The lighting and sidewalk issues seemed to be relatively easy fixes.
The front staff were nice, however, and even showed me to my room.
There is quite a bit to do in Christchurch and the surrounding so if I ever return, I will choose a different hotel in a completely different part of town.
