We were visiting Christchurch for just one night and stayed at the novotel (room1009). We chose to stay in the centre to be able to have a look around and see how the city was coming along since the major earthquake. To our delight the hotel excelled itself. The service by all staff was impeccable, the room was spotless and the meals wonderful. I could not fault the hotel itself....just be aware that due to ongoing demolition there is not much else open for dinner in the surrounding area (and no dairies)...but who needs to go elsewhere as right on your doorstep is The Square Restaurant within the hotel, wonderful service and wonderful food. The room was spacious enough, lovely comfortable king bed, tea & coffee, iron, safe, bathroom amenities and and yes worth another mention - spotless. This hotel is also within walking distance to the container mall, city centre bus station and the botanical gardens and Avon river.
Hint: If you are catching a bus from the airport to town (or vice versa), walk following the blue footprints to the antarctic centre, before crossing the road to the centre there is a bus stop, you can catch the bus here for $5.00 less (actual cost $3.50 per adult from here - I believe No: 3 bus).
