A busy weekend with an international rugby game on in Christchurch so we were lucky to get accommodation here. Free parking at the door was very nice. Had to wait until 3pm to check in. This was too late for us. We wanted to unpack and relax a little and with check out at 10am next day we felt we... More

The check-in lady was so welcoming and informative. She told us about places of interest and weekend markets we could visit. This place is next to the botanical gardens and a short walk to Re:start Mall. The bed was a bit too soft. The room was a tight squeeze for the 3 of us but it has good views of... More

Very good location; reception staff were very helpful. I stayed twice in a week; on both occasions my rooms were clean and beds comfortable. As were the bathrooms. I had some challenges with the WIFI, however I was refunded the charge and able to use the communal internet stations.

Clean rooms and bathrooms. Kitchen kept very clean as well. We felt very welcome and at home! Perfect location. Only downside is the wifi isn't free but... More

Husband, 9yo son and I stayed in a deluxe triple room for three nights. I loved the location, very central, free parking, café downstairs, the staff and friendly and helpful. However, the beds were about as comfortable as planks of wood, I hardly slept. We also had problems with the showers, they'd be hot, warm, cool, cold all within 2... More

My husband and I along with out 15month old stayed at the YMCA earlier this week, it was tidy (not exactly the cleanest) and comfortable - heated blankets and a heater not to mention the bed was a nice place for us to rest our weary heads, basically it had what we needed for our short stay and the best...

Very friendly staff. And very helpful too! Spend only one night there. But quite comfortable beds, bathroom was clean and quite a few per floor! Room with a nice view and the heater worked perfectly! Plenty of space in our room too. Car park included was a bonus.

Receptionist quite nice but not massively helpful. Great free use of gym. Overpriced as with everywhere in NZ but good location! Should have free wifi!! Restaurant was overpriced, rooms were good as was kitchen area, overall decent stay. Not rushing back but wouldn't not recommend if asked
