Friendly staff and a nice room. However, pool facilities were underwhelming and a lot of building work which we were not made aware of. Restaurant not recommended. Food ok but expensive & limited. Overall, ok hotel but not good value for money compared to local motels.

We stayed here overnight after arriving at Christchurch international airport at 30 minutes past midnight. Despite the late hour there was a complementary shuttle bus which arrived quickly and hotel was very convenient for airport. On arrival at the hotel there was a large crowd of heavily intoxicated party goers but otherwise check in check out was very easy, pickup up car from hotel with no dramas. Overall very good, minus one star for intoxicated crowd.

I have used this hotel many times for conferences.
The Conference facilities are many and varied. The accommodation is at a high level. The restaurant and bar are excellent.
Location is handy for the airport.
Service is high level - professional yet still family owned.

Room Tip: The hotel corridors are long and look the same - near reception are older (original rooms) further a...

Splendid luxury. We stayed one night before an early departure. Upon checking in we received a couple of free drink vouchers for the hotel bar (which also has free wifi) so in the evening we had a glass of wine and caught up on e-mails, facebook etc. The rooms are lovely, you get a turn down service, and immaculately clean.

We chose this hotel for a night in Christchurch which we used as our starting point to explore the South Island. It was perfect--very close to the airport, top-notch accommodation, and reasonably priced. My favorite aspect is the layout of the room, which is very efficient. It's not a huge room, but even when there's three or four of you, there's lots of space to move around and there's space for everyone's bags. The room itself feels very new. Clean and comfortable. The restaurant's okay. I made the mistake of ordering the nachos (one of the few vegetarian items on the list) and they don't make them like you know nachos. My family enjoyed their food though. There's al fresco space which seemed like a nice spot to hang out for a drink in cool weather. No, there's no free wifi, but I've learned that that doesn't come standard in hotels in New Zealand.

If you have a stopover for a night or even 2-3 days then this place is perfect. I stayed in the new wing which was really nice - good sized room, little desk, good tv and decent bed and bathroom.

You have to pay for wi-fi which I always find annoying but the pool is good and the restaurant fairly decent.

It does the trick!
