“Efficient and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

We stayed here on two occasions on our trip to the South Islands. We stayed on the 7th and the 5th floor both park facing side which were great. While both apartments face the road, there wasn't much traffic and wasn't noisy at all. There are restaurants and supermarket about a km away which is quite helpful. Parking is spacious and each room has a dedicated one. We stayed in a two bed room apartment. The living room and kitchenette were quite spacious and bedrooms are functional. We found the apartment quite efficient in its service and breakfast was placed in the rooms the night before. I would call it business hotel type facilities and efficiency. We didn't stay too long on each trip (just overnight) and thought it was a good choice. There are no activities for kids and no pool.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor rooms facing the park.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stayed at West Fitzroy apartments for three nights over New Years.

The apartments are conveniently located, near shops, parks, easy to get in an out of the city and close to the airport.

I personally didn't find the bed comfortable, but that's down to personal preference.

There were a couple of issues that had been encountered, a slight problem with the bill, as we booked through a third party and we had trouble with the dryer. However, there were no staff available as the office was closed for most of our stay from NYE. It's possible that this would have been sorted out quickly and efficiently if the staff were available. They did sort out the problem with the bill in 5 minutes as we checked out.

The facilities in the apartment were a strange mix of thoughtful and convenient and stingy and insufficient. The kitchen was well supplied with crockery, cutlery and Tupperware, and there was even fresh milk on arrival. But only four sugars. Only half a roll of toilet paper. No spare bin bags. Very sparse.

I would stay here again, but either for a shorter stay, only one or two nights, or a longer stay where it would not be such an inconvenience to self-cater the basics. Would have given this 3.5 stars if I could.

We were glad to have found a nice place to stay but inside the appartment it was everything else than modern&stylish.
The rooms are well equippt but there was a terrible smell which would not go away. I was really glad to leave this smell behind - it did not go away! On the bed we had only sheets and no duvet and it was pretty cold at night. The room was ok but a bit shabby.

We stayed at the end of our trip for two days. The rooms were comfortable clean and tidy. We also had a car and the parking was on site and easy to get to. The staff were friendly. The location is very good if you just want to walk around time. The only downside was the general building going around the apartments, it did wake us early in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the building

Two nights here before our departure on the early morning flight. We found the two bedroom unit on the third floor to be very comfortable with a good standard of furnishings and equipment.

We had a partial view of the nearby park and gardens as we were at the front of the apartment. After a couple of weeks in the countryside, the traffic noise was noticeable, but not intrusive. Note that for the first three floors, you drive up the carpark to the same level as your apartment, which makes the unloading easier, even if there are a number of doors to negotiate.

Fully equipped TV for the final Lions game was appreciated!

we spent two nights here when we first arrived in New Zealand. The accommodation was so good that we ended up staying there again before we flew out. Within walking distance to the Casino ( for tea ) and to the few shops in the centre. Close to parks and the river. We will definitely be staying there next trip.

Room Tip: we had a room that faced the car park, it didn't bother us, we were not after a view, we were ou...

We stayed at the West Fitzroy Apartments at the beginning and end of our holiday.
On both occasions we found the apartments clean and well appointed. They have everything you need for self cater.
The kitchen has dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave and plenty of cutlery and china.
Also laundry and dryer very useful in Christchurch. The Internet works very well and is most reasonably priced.
Bathroom is spacious and shower is excellent.
When booking ask for view of park so you can use the balcony, we had a park view at first then a (car park) view second.
Finally, great location for cbd and airport.
Well done management and staff.
