I am struggling to find accommodation near the Intercity bus stop which is on Armagh Street south side between Manchester & New Regent Street. It seems many of the close by hostels/budget hotels remain closed from the earthquake.
We arrive in Christchurch at 4pm and depart the next day at 8:30am via Intercity bus. So I am looking for a clean, quiet place to sleep with food/dinner near by.
I found the Thomas Hotel but it appears to remain closed. Any of the close backpackers seem to be closed or have terrible reviews.
Right now the only accommodation I can find available is the Grange Boutique Motel at $150NZD
Will we be lugging our backpacks and I don't want to miss by 8:30am bus so I was hoping to stay at a 10 minute walk or less and under $100NZD. I can spend a bit more to be close by.
Any suggestions are welcome.
