Excellent food, accommodation, parking, service and value for money. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends. Great location, close to everything. even scored airports when I stayed

the special occasion was for my 40th.. i have a large family that resides in the north island and most had not been to Christchurch. Traditionally this type of event would be held at a this setting was exceptional where we didnt have to cook or clean. The experience was amazing , the company even better and the hospitality of the staff that catered for the stay were exceptionally helpful. A job well done by all. The rooms were at a level of satisfaction and to be upgraded to a cottage made the stay even more amazing.. as the family could come and go as they pleased. Thank you for a great experience.

A very enjoyable five night stay, meeting with friends and visiting city centre which is within walking distance. Helpful staff and good meals.and we hope to repeat our visit some time in the future. Interesting family museum.

What a great place to stay, check in was easy and the room was lovely and warm when we arrived, having breakfast included with the stay made the morning a lot easier and the selection of breakfast was second to none, delicious food. The room was comfy and clean only downfall was the shower, wouldn't work properly Hotel is close to everything you could need and it was a easy stroll to the botanical gardens and town, taxi service at hotel was great too Would definitely stay again

Had a family catch up in Christchurch for the weekend... with a ten month in tow.. got a two roomed apartment and it was great.Big bath,warm rooms and handy living area... good restaurants close by.Great venue.. thanks

Well heated and modern with a very well thought out layout. It would be nice to have an in room safe for valuables. Plugs next to the bed is great. The lounge was exactly what I needed for a relaxed meeting without having to talk in a restaurant. the one bedroom suite is well worth it

Excellent service, staff were friendly, accomadated for a whole family that flew down from Auckland for a birthday. Everything was just perfect. rooms were perfect and clean, this place just made our weekend a perfect one.

Tiniest heater in a large cold room. Bathroom like an ice box! Small bed with horrible bedding, like a horse blanket. Pretty average service and food at restaurant at quite high prices. Very nice poached eggs at breakfast though.

Stayed in a Studio room. Pros: Comfortable bed. Value for money. Friendly staff. Cons: No lift so think twice if you have heavy luggage(s) unless you don't mind asking for assistance. Ceiling lights in the room were too dark. Heater provided makes loud noise (no timer). Broken hair dryer and mini fridge. There is no power point in the bathroom. Water pressure was too weak. Very slow internet speed.

The rooms are comfortable and large. Kitchen facilities include 2 electric hot plates as well as microwave. Bathroom had spa bath. Individual heater in room as well as electric blankets. Our room rate included breakfast. Restaurant at premises and plenty of other eating facilities in the area. Parking facilities around the buildings. Free wifi!
