“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We were glad to have found a nice place to stay but inside the appartment it was everything else than modern&stylish.
The rooms are well equippt but there was a terrible smell which would not go away. I was really glad to leave this smell behind - it did not go away! On the bed we had only sheets and no duvet and it was pretty cold at night. The room was ok but a bit shabby.

Hello, Thank you for your comments. If there are any maintenance issues such as smells or housekeeping issues such as the bedding it is always best to report them to reception or the after hours manager if reception is closed, during your stay so that we can remedy them immediately for you. Hope you have a better stay next time.

We stayed at the end of our trip for two days. The rooms were comfortable clean and tidy. We also had a car and the parking was on site and easy to get to. The staff were friendly. The location is very good if you just want to walk around time. The only downside was the general building going around the apartments, it did wake us early in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the building

Two nights here before our departure on the early morning flight. We found the two bedroom unit on the third floor to be very comfortable with a good standard of furnishings and equipment.

We had a partial view of the nearby park and gardens as we were at the front of the apartment. After a couple of weeks in the countryside, the traffic noise was noticeable, but not intrusive. Note that for the first three floors, you drive up the carpark to the same level as your apartment, which makes the unloading easier, even if there are a number of doors to negotiate.

Fully equipped TV for the final Lions game was appreciated!

we spent two nights here when we first arrived in New Zealand. The accommodation was so good that we ended up staying there again before we flew out. Within walking distance to the Casino ( for tea ) and to the few shops in the centre. Close to parks and the river. We will definitely be staying there next trip.

Room Tip: we had a room that faced the car park, it didn't bother us, we were not after a view, we were ou...

We stayed at the West Fitzroy Apartments at the beginning and end of our holiday.
On both occasions we found the apartments clean and well appointed. They have everything you need for self cater.
The kitchen has dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave and plenty of cutlery and china.
Also laundry and dryer very useful in Christchurch. The Internet works very well and is most reasonably priced.
Bathroom is spacious and shower is excellent.
When booking ask for view of park so you can use the balcony, we had a park view at first then a (car park) view second.
Finally, great location for cbd and airport.
Well done management and staff.

We were very happy with our apartment; comfortable, clean and a great location. Only negatives would be there is no wifi and the iron and ironing board weren't great to use. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment and really enjoyed it. First time back in Chch since the earthquake in 2011 and found this a great base. We got a room on the 5th floor with a balcony looking northeast-ish, so nice and sunny. There were a couple of chairs on the balcony which made a nice area for a drink in the late afternoon sun. There was a comfortable bed in the bedroom as well as a good size/well organised wardrobe (an unexpected bonus!). While the bedroom was small, it was in a separate room from the living space and could be closed off if you wanted and still have room for 2 people to walk around inside. The open plan living area had comfortable seating, a modern TV/entertainment system; a dining table that seats 6 and a small but well set up kitchen, fairy well stocked with a reasonable range of basic crockery, pots. pans, cooking utensils, etc, plus some starting amounts of consumables - coffee, salt, pepper, dishwashing liquid etc, which was very handy. There is a dishwasher and a laundry. The bathroom had a shower, basin and toilet, (no bath), but the water pressure was great. Location as others have said, is easy walking distance to Hagley Park and what was the CBD - very sobering to walk around - huge respect to the people of Chch and your spirit - Arohanui!!

Room Tip: We had room 6F - would definitely book this again
