I recently spent three nights at Ibis Christchurch. This hotel has not long been reopened following the devastation of the quakes. Everything is looks great, beautifully finished, clean and offering all you need in a good business hotel. The restaurant is pretty good too, but be sure to book in advance as it fills quickly with very few city centre dining options available at the moment. It is right across from the new Re:START shipping container shopping village which was great and is a very short stroll to Hagley Park. The staff in this hotel are its greatest asset - they are efficient, polite and nothing is too much trouble - well done to the team! The hotel was a good vantage point for some excellent photos of the clean-up operation going on in the city centre - it is very sad to see what has become of this beautiful place. As activities for visitors are quite limited in the town centre, the staff were very helpful with arranging taxis and suggesting shopping centres, cinemas and attractions elsewhere. Only one word of advice to the hotel management - do something about the pillows in the rooms - they are flat as a tac with virtually no support. My room had two beds and six pillows, none of which were really satisfactory.
