“Nice Place”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a very positive experience staying here. The rooms were clean and well decorated. The spa bathroom was a treat. The laundry and kitchenette facilities in the room were very convenient. It was a lovely little hotel. The location will be better when Chch recovers from the earthquake, but it is still about as convenient as things can be there right now. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: We had a corner unit and it was great. Not sure about other units.

We stayed at the Terra Vive on arrival in New Zealand and again just before we left. A pretty short drive from the airport (maybe 15-20 mins) and very easy to find. We received a warm welcome both times and both of the rooms we had were beautifully kept. Clean, modern and comfortable with good facilities. Had a great shower and the washer and dryer meant we didn't fly home with masses of clothes to wash! Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 days at the Terra Vive from the 26th until the 29th. Excellent accommodations - very clean, quiet and all the comforts a traveler needs such as washer/dryer, frig, microwave. Place is immaculately clean and owner is very helpful/resourceful to help with our varied needs of booking trips and looking for all sorts of shops/restaurants. Great Thai take-away place near by. Overall a great place to stay.

Although the studio is well designed there is too much furniture in the room. Especially two big seats take up too much space. The shower has no curtain. So after taking a shower the bathroom is completely wet.The WiFi signal is very low. In the room we had no signal at all, so we had to go outside the room to get a WiFi connection. And even then the connection was very unstable. The breakfast was poor.

Having flown from Melbourne through the early hours of Christmas morning with our sons (ages 9 and 13), we arrived in the drizzling rain at Terra Vive at 5.30am, desperate for some sleep but anticipating a long wait. To our delight, Brian had already left us a note and true to his word, we were given very early access to a room vacated by another couple. By 10am, we were happily settled in our very comfortable and contemporary Executive suite. Brian had even located 1 of the only restaurants open for dinner in the city that evening and had recommended what turned out to be a lovely activity of Punting on the Avon that afternoon! Overall, our stay in Christchurch was bitter sweet - it was difficult to see such devastation almost 2 years after the 2011 earthquake with the sense of being in 'ghost town more pronounced due to our arrival on Christmas Day - yet our stay at Terra Vive was a welcome respite and gave us insight into what is clearly a community hoping to rebuild.....

The apartment was well-decorated and very comfortable! The huge tv was a big treat for the kids. Very close to shopping (Westfied) and the city centre!
Most important of all, the beds were very comfortable!
Very well equipped kitchenette with even a sandwich maker that made perfect grilled cheese!
Lovely place :)

Clean and comfortable rooms, very easy to get to from the airport, as it's on a main street - but no noise! Great little kitchenette with washer & dryers and all the kitchen essentials. We had a small balcony/courtyard out the back, as we were on the ground floor. Walking distance into the city centre (~10 - 15 mins), and there are a couple of good cafes and pubs across the road or along the street. Would highly recommend, and plan to return!
