Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very disappointed when we walked into our "luxury" suite ... The Courtyard was unappealing & was appealing at all. It got no sun as the trees outside were so tall & made the place 'closed in'. Definitely needs pruning back & a tidy up. The sliding door to the outside area was dusty/dirty on the outside & there was a long hair on the sink in the bathroom. Really put us off staying here again ... the only 'luxury' item in the 'Suite' was the Spa Bath : (

Exactly as stated on the packet ! Warm welcome, apartment was spacious and well equipped. Hadn’t appreciated that there was a washer and drier in our apartment , so great to be able to launder our clothes from a hot Singapore stopover. Delighted with the local tips offered and we acted upon them. Thank you About a half hour walk to the town centre.

This accomodation is conveniently located to Christchurch city centre and tourist spots- easy, flat 10-15 min walk or bus just around the corner The rooms are extremely comfortable with wonderful extras - plunger coffee, washing machine and dryer and they even supply the washing powder, and a small private courtyard and on site parking I can’t recommend this highly enough 10 out of 10

We only stayed one night as a last minute booking. The room (two bedroom apartment) was very modern and clean - had a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, large TV - everything we could need. Great shower too. The location is pretty central and while it is on a main road, the double glazing effectively removed all traffic noise. Would happily return to the Terra Vive Apartments

My family and I flew in from wellington on a cold night for Easter weekend and we are so happy to have found this gem! We were greeted by a lovely gentlemen on arrival, who was very helpful and kind with during our stay. We arrived into a self contained pre heated apartment . The amenities are modern and very well thought of, making this special place an amazing escape while providing all the home comforts for an easy few nights away. I really recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere to stay. We only just left and I'm looking for a reason to come back!!

We enjoyed our 3 nightstay here. We had our 7 week baby with us so it was great to have a washing machine and dryer. The fridge was very small which was a little inconvenient. I didn't like that we had the disabled bathroom as the water from the shower went everywhere and the shower head kept falling off the holder. It would probably be a good idea to install a fan in the bathroom as the condensation/steam was pretty bad even though we had the window open.

Great place to stay. The Manager was lovely and very welcoming. Loved the room, was spacious, very clean and had everything we needed. Loved the bathroom with the spa bath. A little further out of town than I thought, but that is due to me not knowing Christchurch. Only a short walk though and close enough for a cheap taxi ride home.

This is definitely not a “luxury” apartment. Room was fairly run down, when showering the whole bathroom would get wet, no divider between the shower and toilet. On top of this, as I wrote the same feedback on Expedia the owner has charged me $100.00 to my credit card for “damages” - emailing me saying that we left oil stain and blood stains on the duvet, which is completely a lie. When asked for proof via a photo, nothing provided. Don’t stay here!!!
