Had a very pleasant stay in the middle of town. Close to shopping, tram line, fairly quiet rooms. Good beds (we like firm mattresses) and faultless room amenities and services. We arrived at 2 a.m. and our after-hours instructions to check-in were easy and worked well. So stay here worry-free, and good luck to ChCh in rebuilding!

Located in the middle of town and close to everything to see in Christchurch. The place was renovated following the earthquake and has been mad earthquake proof. The rooms are clean and comfortable and good value. There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity including an Irish Pub, numerous asian and the Casino. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Quest is open again.

We rented a one bedroom apartment for two days. I had a lovely stay in the spacious apartment. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. There was a tv with a wide selection of movies that can be watched for free. Would recommend moving the TV closer to the sofa since it's a 20+ inch LCD tv.

There's a working kitchen with all the utensils you need for cooking. The spatula was broken though, the handle kept coming off as I cooked. There's also a dish washer, and a dish-washing brush that had obvious moldy spots on it. But no matter, the dish washer worked fine.

The other thing I appreciated was the washing machine/dryer in the apartment. It was the end of our trip, so we could do all our laundry and not have to worry about it when we got back. :)

The service was friendly and helpful.

The location is great, a short walk from most attractions such as the Cardboard Cathedral, Re:Start Mall and the Botanic Gardens. Groceries can also be bought about 10 mins walk away.

Enjoyed my stay, would return again. But get a higher room because the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies look into a glass roof.

Room Tip: Get a one bedroom apartment to enjoy the comforts of home and a higher floor if you prefer to have a...

Accommodation is still at a premium in Christchurch post the earth quakes, you generally have to book weeks in advance to secure your normal preference. I was required to take a business trip at fairly short notice and was booked into the Quest Christchurch "Serviced Apartments" and was given a "Studio Apartment". Unfortunately the Studios are nothing more than a slightly oversized hotel room and do not really have a kitchenette... this wouldn't be a problem if there is a restaurant on site but there isn't and there isn't really any options nearby either. In fact, upon checkin at around 7pm on a Tuesday evening I asked the receptionist if she could recommend somewhere to grab a quick bite to eat. She pondered for a moment and then told me "Well, Calendar Girls is right over there". Calendar Girls is a strip club and whilst I'm all for supporting struggling university students and single mothers, I'm pretty sure strip clubs don't serve actual meals. So if you are wanting to eat while staying at Quest, I suggest you book nothing less than a 1 brm apartment, or be prepared to drive across the CBD (navigating all the one way streets and detours). Aside from that the rooms are fairly basic, firm bed, sparsely furnished and the windows are NOT double glazed meaning you will get road noise... and construction noise from 6am.

Centrally located & even in earthquake ravaged Christchurch, it is easily accessible. Walking distance to plenty the punt, the tram literally stops here & restaurants are a not too far away either. Only tip is if you have young children ask for a room that does not have a window opening into the living room (some bedrooms may not have a window so they have a 30cm window strip running from the roof to the ground opening onto the living room.)

I would certainly recommend the Quest Christchurch for comfortable convenient accommodation. Our room was brilliant, roomy, warm & quiet. We were welcomed on our arrival and nothing was a problem to the staff. The Quest is in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the container mall and central inner city. If you are looking for clean spacious apartments I would strongly suggest the Quest Christchurch. Will be back for another enjoyable stay. Thanks to Bess and your staff.
